    We are arriving late Sept for one week. Hollywood Studios is open @ 0600 ,extra magic hours. Will buses be operational from Key West Resort at that hour? If not will Minnie Van's be available? Thanks Edt

    Greetings Edward!

    I feel the Force is growing in strength as the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge approaches at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In anticipation, new Extra Extra Magic Hours will be offered to Guests at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels including the resort planet known as Disney’s Old Key West Resort. Early morning bus transports will be available for those travelers headed to the planet Batuu near the Outer Rim Territories. I recommend a visit to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, known to be a popular stop for both adventurers and traders. Should you find yourself in need of refreshment Oga's Cantina offers a variety of beverages from throughout the galaxy. If you will be looking for work, and have some flying experience, Hondo Ohnaka has a profitable trading business and he is often looking for Guests to transport goods for him on his Corellian YT-1300 light freighter, the Millennium Falcon.

    Be sure to download the Play Disney Parks Mobile App on your personal handheld device before embarking on your journey. This App will assist you with communication and language translation on Batuu, as well as offer navigation assistance, droid control and other important tools.

    Additional transports may be available via the new vehicles you have inquired about, known as the Minnie Van, however specific early hours for such transports have not yet been announced. I would check back with us in early September for an update.

    Wishing you a safe journey to Batuu, Edward, and may the Force be with you.
