    Hello. Is it possible not to be able to get into hollywood studios on September 14th due to galaxy edge opening? i have a 1 day base ticket for the above date. can i change the date if i can't get in on September 14th.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kimberly!

    I know I’m not alone in counting down the days until Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and I know I’m also not the only one who’s a little anxious about the potential crowds. My family and I will be there opening weekend, and while we feel like watching last month's opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park in California has given us some idea of what to expect, we really won’t know until after August 29 if those expectations will hold true for Walt Disney World Resort.

    Unfortunately, it is possible for any Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park to close when it reaches its capacity for the day. I know that in the past I’ve relied on the My Disney Experience mobile app to keep me notified of any closures or traffic issues on those busiest days of the year (such as Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve), and I would recommend you definitely have the app installed on your phone to monitor announcements about crowd levels on the day of your arrival.

    If you're staying at an official Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you'll not only have access to Extra Magic Hours, but you'll also have access to extra, Extra Magic Hours offered from 6-9 a.m. at Disney's Hollywood Studios for a limited time this Fall. This is another great way to potentially access Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and its attractions before the Park officially opens for the day.

    You will arrive two weeks after Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens, so I would also recommend staying tuned to the Disney Parks Blog’s posts online and on social media to get a general idea of what the crowd levels are looking like in that first week or so. You are allowed to make changes to your ticket (including its validity date) prior to midnight Eastern Time September 13, 2019. While there isn’t a fee involved in modifying your ticket date, you will have to pay the difference if you choose a date with a higher-priced base ticket. Additionally, you will not receive a refund of the difference if you choose a date with a lower cost.

    If you have additional questions about the ticket you’ve purchased, you can check out the Frequently Asked Questions or call the Existing Tickets helpline to see if a Cast Member can help with your question or concern.

    I wish you the best of luck with your September visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Kimberly. May the Force be with you!
