    I have purchased tickets and made reservations to be at Hollywood Studios in Florida for May, 29. To get access into Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge while at that park, do I need to get a reservation to get into that section? If so, how do I do that?

    Bright Suns, Torrie!

    Sounds like you are Star Wars fans of the “First Order.” Me too! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is a mind-blowing, immersive land that will have you convinced that you are actually on the planet Batuu and a part of the Star Wars universe. Now that you have secured your theme park tickets and Disney Park Pass reservations to access Disney’s Hollywood Studios, “these ARE the reservations you are looking for.” In other words, no additional arrangements need to be made to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! 

    However, there are several experiences that may require some pre-planning. For instance, If you do want to build your own lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop or create a droid at the Droid Depot, that does require a separate reservation. Additionally, I strongly recommend making plans to visit Oga’s Cantina, which does  require an Advance Dining Reservation. Hey, they don’t just let any smugglers in the galaxy into Oga’s Cantina, so naturally they want you to have a reservation!

    Since you want to experience everything in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, let me give you some planDisney advice about getting a boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance because it is incredibly popular and requires some effort. This attraction has its own virtual queue to be joined at 7:00 A.M. (and again at 1:00 P.M. if unsuccessful at the earlier time). You'll log into the My Disney Experience mobile app and select the "Join Virtual Queue" at exactly 7:00 AM. It will confirm you want to join the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and ask who is part of your party. The main goal is to get that boarding group assigned! Later in the day, you’ll be notified to come to the attraction for boarding. My fellow panelist Missy has a wonderful answer outlining all the steps to the boarding group process. 

    Last but not least, be sure to capture photos from this memorable day with some amazing Super Zoom Magic Shots. There’s one in front of the Millennium Falcon as well as a 360 degree photo opportunity known as the Tiny World Magic Shot from Batuu! 

    Torrie, plot a course back to planDisney with more questions. And then get ready to make that jump to lightspeed because your vacation is almost here! 

    May the Force be with you!
