    Hello - we are planning a trip but staying with friends near Orlando. Can we book experiences like light saber building and the Cinderella breakfast 60 days prior if we aren’t staying on property? Also can we reserve day of for rise of rebellion?

    Bright Suns, Rick!

    I am heartened to learn of your plans to visit Batuu. The Resistance needs additional allies for the Cause. As you may suspect, scheduling time at Savi's Workshop to build lightsabers requires some planning and skill. Although your reservation window will open 60-days prior to your visit, the challenge will be that other Guests staying at Disney Resorts Collection and other select hotels will have the ability to reserve 60-days in advance plus 10 days of their stay, so Guests arriving before you may have already booked all of the reservations for the day you arrive. If you log on the day your reservation window opens and there are no available reservations, keep checking. 

    The same will be true for making an advanced dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table. When your dining reservation booking window opens, there may not be any available reservations remaining. But, keep checking because cancelations do happen! I have also had some success with using dining reservation services that search for Disney dining reservations and send alerts when they find one. We use one of the services online and, when we get an alert, we have 15 minutes to secure that reservation.

    It sounds like you may have some Jedi-in-training with you. If Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is using a virtual queue process at the time of your visit, you could try joining the virtual queue from your friend's house. Currently, the virtual queue is paused so Guests are using a standby queue. Another option would be to try making a Lightning Lane Purchase. Lightning Lane attractions are priced separately (check the FAQ on pricing) and pricing may vary depending on the time of year and attraction. While Disney Resorts Collection Guests can make individual Lightning Lane purchases at 7:00 a.m. on the day of their visit, you would be able to purchase when the park opens.

    Rick, if you decide to book a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you would be able to take advantage of the booking window opening at 60-days prior to your visit and you would be able to make reservations for up to 10 days of your visit. Having said that, I understand the importance of sticking to a budget and spending time with friends and family, so enjoy your friends! May the Force be with you as you plan!

    Good journey,
