    I am afraid of the size of the crowd for the Starwars opening . Headed to Disney for the first time in September and we are wondering if we should change our date? Any suggestions? We are not interested in the starwars part of HS but would like to go.

    Hi Jamie!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It is true to say there has been a huge amount of excitement around Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, with the opening date recently being announced for 29th August. Whenever Walt Disney World opens something so spectacular (remember Pandora - The World of Avatar, and Toy Story Land?) everyone wants to experience it. No-one knows exactly where most Guests will be spending their time, but Disney's Hollywood Studios will likely be much busier than usual. I recommend using Extra Magic Hours (select parks on select days will open an hour earlier, or stay open later than the regular park hours, exclusively for guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel) at Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Ensure you secure your FastPass+ reservations at those parks as soon as they become available (60 days in advance for Disney Resort hotel guests) and make all your dining reservations online or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app, up to 180 days in advance. I am also visiting in September, and am looking forward to spending time at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach, and enjoying some shopping and dining at Disney Springs. Any excuse to relax! With careful forward planning, your magical vacation awaits you!

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.
