    Can I still have FP to other rides while I wait to get into Galaxy's Edge? I understand about the wait times, but am very confused about the whole process of getting in and experiencing everything. Please explain! Thanks!

    Bright Suns, Jeanie!

    The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World Resort. The weather is usually cool and clear, but I can't speak for what the temperature is like on Batuu at that time of year so you'll have to send a holographic transmission back to us here on Earth to let us know how it is when you visit in December.

    The Boarding Group system for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and the FastPass+ system for the rest of Disney's Hollywood Studios are separate from each other and work independently so you can certainly hold a Boarding Group number and your FastPass+ selections at the same time. The Boarding Group system has very rarely been used and more often than not guests have been able to just walk right in, but you will be visiting on the week that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be opening so it may be put into place if there are a lot of guests trying to get into Black Spire Outpost at the same time. The My Disney Experience app should push a notification to your phone when you arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios to let you know if you need to join a Boarding Group to access Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, but you can always check for yourself by tapping on the Menu tab in the bottom right corner of the app, and then clicking on the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge button. You'll be able to check the current land status there and also join a boarding group if you need to.

    I hope this answers your questions, Jeanie, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
