With the larger front axel on the 2019 can I buy new spacers or will I have to buy a whole new front wheel? I would hate to have to spend extra money after only a year use on my extra wheels.

I’m pretty sure the rear will swap over with a larger sprocket.

kind of hard to give a solid answer considering the bike wont be at dealers for a few months

Probably spacers and wheel bearings, should be good.

Its already been confirmed. No they will not fit. Much larger axles on the 19.

You might want to see if there is a bearing with the same OD and smaller ID.

OTHER options are to have the hub bird for the larger OD bearings...
Have a new axle made and space / spacers made

In other words, a lot of trouble or buy OEM / wait until companies make a new hub and swap in a new hub.
