    I booked the build a droid at hs for 9am, early entry starts at 830, is there a separate entry for early reservations and can you leave the droid after and pick it up on your way out? Will there be transportation to hs from the contemporary that early?

    Hi Tara,

    Droid Depot is an epic experience for any Star Wars fan! We still love playing with our droids years later and they were the perfect souvenir for my Star Wars-loving family. There is also a fun little area right outside the Droid Depot where you can play with your droid and have it interact with theme park elements so don't forget to check that out!

    Transportation from your Disney Resort hotel to the theme parks will begin 45 minutes before theme park entry. Since you are staying at Disney's Contemporary Resort, you will utilize bus transportation to Hollywood Studios. I recommend familiarizing yourself with the My Disney Experience app before your trip because it will be handy when navigating Disney transportation. In the app, you can access a bus schedule for your specific resort that will tell you exactly when to expect the next bus. I always get down to the stop about 10 minutes before the time it states to ensure I don't miss it because sometimes they arrive a little early.

    There is a separate line for early dining reservations but it is not always available. If it is available the day you are visiting, you will see a cast member holding up a sign. If you do not see a sign, check with one of the cast members at the gate when you arrive to see if they are accommodating early dining reservations that day and they will point you in the right direction. Since your reservation is 30 minutes after the Early Theme Park Entry, you should have plenty of time to make it to Droid Depot even if there is not a separate line that day. 

    After you build your new best friend, you have a few options if you don't want your droid to accompany you through the theme park. The first option is to have the Droid Depot ship it directly back to your home outpost. Shipping options have changed a few times recently so if you are interested in this option, I would ask the cast member at check out for current procedures for shipping droids home. If you want to have your droid to play with at the end of your theme park day, you can rent a locker at the front of Hollywood Studios and store it while you explore for the day. 

    May the Force Be With You,
