    We are arriving at Disney World this Saturday Aug 31 and I am wondering what the plan is for the opening of Star Wars. I've heard somewhere there will be reservations. Just curious what all the details are so we can be prepared.

    Bright suns, Lorisa!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu.

    I am so excited to hear that you will have the opportunity to experience your very own Star Wars adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in just a couple of days!  I had the opportunity to travel to Batuu when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opened at Disneyland Resort a few months ago, and it was an amazing experience.  Piloting the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run was a childhood dream come true!

    The Walt Disney World Resort will not be using a reservation system to enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.  Although you will not need a reservation to access the land itself, various experiences within this incredibly immersive new land are currently accepting reservations.  Travelers can make reservations for Oga's Cantina, Droid Depot, and Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers up to 180 days in advance.

    If you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, be sure to take advantage of the extra, Extra Magic Hours benefit.  Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests will have access to Disney's Hollywood Studios from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., daily from September 1 through November 2, 2019.  Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news surrounding the opening of this highly anticipated new land.

    May the Force be with you!
