    We are a family of four. We have reservations at Savi's and Droid workshop within hr of each other. I assume this guarantees entry into Galaxy's Edge area. Do we still need any other boarding group to go on Rise of the Resistance or Smugglers?

    Bright suns, Jennifer!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu.  Are you ready to live your very own Star Wars adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge?  I would be happy to give you some tips to help you make the most of your visit to this immersive new land.

    I'm glad to hear that you have already made reservations for Droid Depot and Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers.  During the first few days after Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opened, access to the land was restricted due to capacity level crowds.  However, during that time, guests who had reservations booked for experiences within the land were admitted up to an hour before their reservation time.  Once the initial crowds tapered off, guests were permitted to travel to Batuu as they pleased.  I doubt that access to the land will be restricted during your visit, but if by some chance it is, you will be able to enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge for your reservations.

    If you would like to take the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy for a spin on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you can access this attraction in the same manner as most other rides.  You may enter the standby queue at any time, and beginning on February 19, 2020, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will also be available as a FastPass+ selection.

    The procedure for accessing the epic new attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a little different.  Currently, a virtual queue system with boarding groups is being utilized for this attraction.  All guests wishing to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, should enter Disney's Hollywood Studios before the park opens in the morning.  At the official park opening time, you will use your My Disney Experience mobile app to request a boarding group.  You will then be notified through the app when it is your boarding group's turn to experience the attraction and given a time window in which to arrive at the attraction.  You will need to be assigned a boarding group in order to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, even if you have reservations within the land.  Please be aware that the procedures for accessing Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance are subject to change.  I recommend following the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news.

    May the Force be with you!
