Badge pick up and morning queuing will open for all fans at 8:00 AM daily. You may not arrive prior to 8:00 AM. Overnight queuing and camping is not allowed, and you may be sent to Detention Block AA-23 if you arrive too early! Star Wars Celebration will open at 10:00 AM daily, and 9:30 AM for Jedi Master VIPs.

Upon arrival, enter Star Wars Celebration from the Custom House walkway, between the West Entrance and Custom House DLR station. Look for directional signage or ask a staff member for help if you need assistance. The West entrance will be closed to all fans except those with accessibility needs. Do not queue at the West entrance, continue along Custom House walkway to the main entry point.
