    I just come to Disney for the star war ride, but reservation at Hollywood was fully booked. I made my reservation at Magic Kingdom, got hopper tickets, n stayed in DolphinResort. What should I do to ensure I get on The ride or change date?

    Bright suns, King!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place in the galaxy. I am so excited that you will be travelling to Batuu so soon, and I am thrilled that we were able to receive your transmission. My droid let me know that this was especially important, and I am honoured to be a part of your planning process today.

    At this time, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run are not using virtual queues, so you should have no problem being able to ride these incredible attractions when Park Hopping becomes available at 2 pm on the day of your visit. There are, however, a few things you can try to avoid waiting too long when boarding these ships. First, you can purchase Disney Genie+ on the My Disney Experience mobile app on the day of your visit. At this time, Disney Genie+ costs 15$ per day per person, but prices are subject to change. To buy this service, log into your My Disney Experience mobile app and click on the three-line menu at the bottom-right of your screen. Then, click on "My Genie Day" and "Get Disney Genie+ for Today" in the purple banner. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is a Disney Genie+ attraction, but if you would like to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, you will have to buy an Individual Lightning Lane. These can also be purchased in the same section but in the "Tip Board" section rather than under "My Day," and they vary in price per attraction. Selections for both services open at seven A.M. on the mobile app, so be ready a few minutes early as Lightning Lanes tend to get booked up rather quickly. More selections might come out as well as time goes by, so don't panic!

    Another trick you can use to go on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is to get in line right before the theme park closes. Indeed, I have found that the lowest wait times are typically at night, right before park closure, so this could be a good option if you cannot secure a Lightning Lane for the attraction. In the meantime, there are so many things to experience while on Batuu! Since Batuu has three suns, it can get quite hot, so I highly suggest stopping by the Milk Stand for a cold cup of Blue Milk. I also highly recommend eating at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo as its menu is delicious if you are hungry. If you are feeling adventurous, try the Outpost Puff for dessert. This chocolate mousse is rich and delicious and will surprise you with its slight kick!

    I hope this was helpful, King, and that you and your fellow recruits will have the best day ever on your intergalactic trip to Batuu. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your trip, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are always happy to help fellow members of the resistance!

    Ignite the spark, and may the force be with you,
