    We are planning our trip for the opening day of Galaxy's Edge. Can you tell me the best way to get to the park and the earliest we will be able to get into the parking lot? The bus did not work well for the opening day of Pandora.

    Greetings Rebecca!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The force is strong with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and we are thrilled to be answering questions about it! It is out of this world that so many people are as excited as we are!

    Like you, my family will also be in Walt Disney World on Labor Day weekend! But we unknowingly booked our trip, and it sounds like your galactic adventure was planned! So now we both get to experience the thrill of a brand new land, and knowing how excited we are, I think we will have plenty of other “friends” at the Parks with us!

    If you are driving, the parking lot for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will open one hour before Park opening. The best way to keep track of Park Hours is via the Monthly Calendar. There you will find Park Hours, Extra Magic Hours, and hours for special events. If I were you, I would make sure to be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios before that hour before. While (as Yoda say) “impossible to see, the future is,” I am sure there will be a legion of excited Guests joining you!

    If you don’t want to navigate yourself, try the Minnie Van Service. The polka-dotted fleet will get you from your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel to the Park in light-speed! They are available from 6:30 am to 12:30 am daily, and you request a ride via the Lyft app on your smartphone.

    Rebecca, if you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

    Excited am I ~ Rayna
