    Is it difficult to get into the Galaxy Edge area? I purchased a lightsaber assembly package. Does the reservation grant access (with park admission) to the Galaxy Edge area or do you have to wait?

    Bright Suns, Marlene!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My pleasure it is to tell you that your access is already secured. All those who are brave enough to visit Savi's Workshop despite the First Order's efforts to crush the Resistance are granted access to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge up to one hour before their reservation. 

    The same honor is extended to travelers who have reservations to plot their next move at Oga's Cantina. Pilots who have secured spots to build their electronic companions at the Droid Depot will also be allowed in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge under the same rules.

    Explorers who do not have reservations, though, are not having trouble entering the land right now. The My Disney Experience app currently offers a section named "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Status and Access" that gives real-time information for those who want to plan before they hit hyperdrive. I just checked it, and there is no need for Boarding Passes right now. As your trip comes closer, you can monitor the access conditions and plan accordingly.

    If more questions pop up before your adventure is here, Marlene, please, come back. I have a good feeling about your trip already!

    May the Force and the magic be with you,
