    Galaxy's edge no fastpass option? What do? Suggestions please.

    Hello Anita! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Let's see if I can help navigate you through the popular Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attractions found at Disney's Hollywood Studios! There are two attractions located in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. They are Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The manner in which you access each attraction is different.

    To access Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run you can either secure a FastPass+ reservation or use the traditional standby line. My recommendation would be to try to secure a FastPass+ reservation so that you don't have to wait in line. However, if FastPass+ reservations are no longer available at the time that you make your reservations, you can choose to wait in the standby line. It is worth it!

    It doesn't feel right to call Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance an attraction when it really feels like you are starring in a Star Wars movie! Neither FastPass+ nor standby lines are not available for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Guests wishing to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance must do so by joining a Boarding Group. Boarding Groups are available to Guests on the My Disney Experience app. You may only join a Boarding Group once you have entered Disney's Hollywood Studios during regular park operating hours.

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a very popular attraction! I recommend arriving early to the park so that you are assured to be inside the park, not waiting in line to get into the park, as soon operating hours begin for the day! Get your My Disney Experience app ready!

    Anita, remember, if you are a Guest staying at a Disney Resort Hotel you can make your FastPass+ reservations 60-days prior to your trip! If you are staying off-property, you can make your FastPass+ reservations 30-days prior to your trip!
