It’s summer vaycay planning time, and if you have your sights set on an out-of-this-world vacation, news has finally dropped about when the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening day arrives Disneyland. Disney CEO Bob Iger recently spilled the tentative month it will open, and it’s sooner than we thought.

In a recent interview with Barron’s, Iger opened up about some of Disney’s latest (and hopefully greatest) changes. Along with talking about Disney’s soon-to-be streaming video service, Disney+, Iger also gave some insider info on Disney’s 2019 slate of feature films and upcoming park openings.

While Disney Parks have yet to provide the public with anything short of a “summer 2019” opening for the new Star Wars land, Iger noted that the 14-acre area for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Anaheim, California park will open in June 2019.

He also added that Star Wars: Galaxy Edge at Disney World is slated for an opening “in Florida later in the year.” Again, like Disneyland, Walt Disney World has kept mum on a precise date. But the Walt Disney World website does give “fall 2019” as its Star Wars land opening time period.

One other insider tidbit? Star Wars: Galaxy Edge is the biggest land that Disney has ever built, according to Iger. Is it June yet?
