    For Extra Extra Magic Hours this fall... If the park opens at 6am, how early will we be able to access parking? Is it the standard 2 hours? Meaning we can park as early as 4am?

    Hi Rose,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so excited to visit Batuu when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Walt Disney World Resort, and it makes my logistics-loving heart happy to hear you’re getting all your droids in a row so your visit can be out-of-this-world!

    I checked in with a Cast Member, who told me that the theme park parking lots typically open one hour before that park’s opening time. So, for the extra, Extra Magic Hours this fall at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, with a theme park opening time of 7:00 a.m., parking lots will open at 6:00 a.m.

    As for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we’re still waiting for official word. The opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is expected to be very popular, and draw many intergalactic visitors, so parking may open earlier than one hour before the park's 6:00 a.m. opening time during extra, Extra Magic Hours. My advice is to watch the Disney Parks Blog for transmissions a few weeks before the land’s opening, as there will likely be lots of advice shared to help Guests make the most out of their visit to Batuu. I’d also recommend checking in with a Cast Member at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, as they will have the most up-to-date information and can help with all your questions.

    Your autumn visit to Walt Disney World Resort is only a few months away, Rose! I hope, like one of my favorite Star Wars heroes who shares your name, that you have an epic adventure in a galaxy far, far away, and that you make the most magical memories on your vacation. As you count down and do your planning and dreaming, please come back and see us if you have further questions. 

    May the Force be with you,
