    Hello! We're going to Hollywood Studios on Thursday 12/19/19. Should we head straight for Galaxy's Edge or, thinking most people will head straight there, wait until later in the day? Thanks for your input.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shaun! I think it's a great idea for you to think about what your Theme Park strategy is going to be when you're visiting Walt Disney World Resort next month. Disney's Hollywood Studios has recently undergone an amazing transformation so there are so many brand new things to see and do.

    For the guests who get there first thing in the morning to get the jump on the daytime crowds, there seem to be two major draws at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the moment: Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. They are the newest lands at Walt Disney World Resort and they're both super popular with guests right now! Either one of those destinations would be a great choice for your first attractions of the morning. You will be visiting pretty soon after the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, so it's possible that more guests will be choosing to head to Batuu first thing in the morning to check out the new attraction. If it's possible, I recommend grabbing a FastPass+ for Slinky Dog Dash and using that early morning time to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. I find that the crowds tend to thin out a bit around closing time as well, so that would be a great opportunity to try and sneak in a ride on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

    Have a magical day, Shaun!
