    With the opening of Rise of the Resistance, I am worried about getting into our early morning breakfast reservation at Hollywood and Vine. I’ve read and seen pictures of the crowds and am worried about how we will make our way to the restaurant. Help!

    Hi Kristen,

    Bright suns - we have received your transmission. Welcome to the Resistance. With the First Order always on patrol, we have worked diligently to extend our Resistance networks. Thanks to the fierce commitment of some of our most talented fighters, we have cleared a path to nourishment. I am confident that you will be able to reach your breakfast destination unharmed as long as you follow these specific instructions. 

    Of the utmost importance - check the planetary hours for the date of your visit. I strongly suggest that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to opening to be sure you clear security. Be certain to check the transport times for off-worlders. Keep everyone in your party together. Once you have disembarked from transport and have been cleared for entrance, use your mobile device to alert the Resistance to your arrival. The secret code is currently "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance - Access by Boarding Group." This is a safety precaution and not necessary if some in your party are not prepared to take this next step. Upon joining a boarding group, you will secure the support of additional Resistance operatives in the unlikely event you are captured by the First Order. Be vigilant and always check the mobile app as procedures may change to prevent First Order infiltration of our forces.

    If your breakfast reservation is before the official planetary entrance time, find one of our operatives at the entrance and explain that you have an early reservation for Hollywood & Vine. This dining spot provides nourishment for our newly recruited forces as they make their way to trade and gather info on Black Spire Outpost located on Batuu. With your confirmed dining reservation, you should be allowed entrance even if others are delayed at the entrance checkpoint. On our most recent visit, we faced a similar dilemma with an 8:00 a.m. reservation at Hollywood & Vine. Thankfully, we were cleared through security prior to planetary opening, joined a boarding group, and were well protected as we dined.

    Rest assured, our operatives at the entrance are well trained. Despite the crowds, we were able to proceed to the dining location efficiently. I trust the same will hold true for you. Should you desire to do more for the Resistance, use your navigational skills to locate Savi's secret workshop. We visited, we built, and we now stand ready.

    Kristen, I sense that the Force is strong in your family. We courageously await your arrival!

    Till the Spire,
