    I am planning to try to get a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance. I am staying at Pop Century. If I get on the skyliner at 9, will it get me to Hollywood Studios on time (through bag check, system registers me entering park)?

    Bright Suns, Amy,

    We are thrilled to see you stopping by to ask another great question at planDisney!

    As you sense, confirming one's intergalactic transport to Batuu is most important. Under normal circumstances, the Disney Skyliner would most likely get you there on time. First Order operatives, however, are unpredictable. When last I rode the Disney Skyliner, we were able to get from EPCOT to Disney's Riviera Resort in good time, but I did witness delays on other occasions. Assuming that Disney's Hollywood Studios opens at 10:00 a.m. on the day of your visit and that the Disney Skyliner is operating, you may be fine. Check the posted operating hours when you arrive. If possible, I would leave by 8:45 a.m.  On our last visit, we arrived early and simply waited in line.

    As you prepare to join the Resistance, be sure that you have downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App and that everyone in your party is connected in your My Family & Friends list. Once you arrive and secure a boarding time window via the virtual queue, make your way to visit the Gatherers at Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsaber's at Walt Disney World Resort. Be sure to secure a visitation time. Bonding with your lightsaber will prepare you for the difficult journey ahead. 

    While there, access your Star Wars: Datapad on Play Disney Parks Mobile App. With certainty, you will need to use it to translate galactic languages and hack into droids. Make a reservation at Oga's Cantina. You may want to meet other Resistance forces to refresh and catch up on their galactic adventures. My girls love the Carbon Freeze. They giggle whenever they drink it - reminds me that they are not yet Jedi.

    Amy, given your arrival date, you do not have much time! Check the operational updates and make plans accordingly. Your commitment to the Cause has been noted.

    Good journey,
