    Do you know if there is still an HPE lobby for HPE employees in Mission Space?

    Hi Gonzalo,

    Glad you stopped by at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Are you planning on visiting the Resort soon? So many exciting things going on, but I cannot wait for the grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Almost there… Almost there…

    Walt Disney World Resort has several venues not typically open the general public. For example, Disney Vacation Club Members can enjoy two exclusive lounges: Member Lounge at Epcot, and Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. And Disney Rewards cardmembers can meet some of their favorite Disney and Star Wars Characters at private locations at both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    There are also locations available for private events. I had the opportunity to visit Hollywood Hideaway and Backstage Prop Shop at Disney's Hollywood Studios in the past, and even though some may no longer exist, there are many more and new ones secretly opening, like Club 33. HPE's Lounge used to be situated next to Mission: SPACE, but has given its space to the upcoming Space-Themed Restaurant. No date is yet available, but at this time, it still expected to open later this year. Keep tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more information.

    One last tip: looking for something out of this world in the meantime? Make a reservation to visit Oga's Cantina. Star Tours is ready to take you to a galaxy far far away. Happy planning!
