    I made a reservation for the Droid Depot at 9am in Hollywood studios. Will we be able to get in the gate before 9 so we don't miss our reservation? And what will happen if we can not get in until 9?

    Welcome to planDisney, Shaina.

    It's not long now until you'll be chartering your starcruiser and heading to a galaxy far, far away. Having recently had the pleasure of bringing my own Padawan to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, I can personally testify that you're in for a magical adventure. A trip to Batuu will transport you to a whole new world.

    I see that you'd like to assemble your own custom astromech unit at Droid Depot? Impressive. Most impressive. Disney's Hollywood Studios opens at 9:00 a.m on the day of your reservation. However, you needn't panic about making your appointment. The ambassador of Batuu has struck an agreement with the folks at Disney to allow people like yourself early access. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, then you'll be able to enjoy Early Theme Park Entry and enter 30 minutes before park opening. Even if you're not staying at a Disney Resort, you'll still be able to make your reservation on time. Here's how: Once you arrive at the park entrance, look specifically for a Cast Member who'll be talking through a headset microphone. They're usually directing Guests who have pre-opening reservations. If you're ever in doubt, just mention to one of the many Cast Members that you have a 9:00 a.m. reservation at Droid Depot and they will be able to direct you to the specific entrance. You'll then move at lightspeed to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

    After you build your droid, don't forget to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Follow that up with a delicious trip to Ronto Roasters or Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo to keep the Force strong.

    Have a wonderful trip, Shaina. Till the Spires!
