    Has there been an announcement about the new Star Wars area in Hollywood Studios in Florida? Or at least an estimate of when it might be? I am trying to plan a trip in August and don't want to get caught up in the huge crowd levels.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Bill! August really is a great time time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. You can truly get into full summer vacation mode at all of the theme parks and water parks. You can even kick-off the Halloween season when you're there because the first Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party of the year is taking place the week you arrive. This event is one of my family's favorites, and you can already get tickets today if you think you'd like to trick or treat on Main Street U.S.A.!

    You'll also be visiting at a really exciting time at Walt Disney World Resort as the finishing touches are being put on Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which is opening this year at Disney's Hollywood Studios. While there is still no official word of when exactly we can start visiting the Planet Batuu for ourselves, we have been told that we can begin preparing ourselves for launch sometime in the fall of 2019. Since your visit falls right in the middle of the summer, I don't think you'll have to worry about accidentally finding yourself there on opening weekend. Like I said though, you never know what might happen and there's been no official word on an exact date yet, so keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more information. 

    Have a magical day, Bill!
