Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was packed, but Disneyland itself was empty!

Crowds might have been lining up in the wee hours of the morning on Friday to get into the brand-new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land on its opening day, but visitors noticed something a little strange about the rest of Disneyland.

Namely, it was mostly empty.

Denise Preskitt, who runs Disney travel website, took to Twitter on Friday morning to show how few people were in the actual Disneyland park after the new “Star Wars”-themed land opened Friday morning.

Preskitt’s photos showed a sparsely populated park, with only a few people walking around and wait times for the park’s popular rides at a minimum.

Part of that could be because Disneyland’s Southern California annual passes, the park’s cheapest pass options, are blocked out for the day. This, as well as the expected crowds around Galaxy’s Edge, could have prevented people from braving the park.

According to the Disneyland app, which measures wait times for rides, the lines for rides throughout Disneyland did appear shorter than usual.

For example, the line for the park’s Indiana Jones Adventure ride was only 20 minutes long at 11 a.m., according to the app. (Normally, the line averages closer to the 40-minute mark or more by that time of day.)

Lines for rides such as the Pirates of the Caribbean and It’s a Small World rides were all listed on the app as five-minute waits around 11 a.m.

Despite predictions to the contrary, the trend continued throughout the day.
