    Hi! We have an 8:35 reservation at Droid Depot on December 26. What time do we need to be pulling into the Hollywood Studios parking lot in our rental car?

    Bright Suns, Thomas! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing your question to our planet!

    Landing in Batuu is one of the coolest experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort, so I'm guessing you will not want to rush it. After parking your car at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you will go through security, scan your tickets and then walk through the Theme Park to get to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

    Considering that you will be visiting between two major holidays, it's also wise to consider that the Theme Park may have many visitors on December 26. Factoring all these variables, I'd suggest pulling into the parking lot at around 7:00 a.m. 

    If everything goes faster and smoother than expected, this plan gives you room to get to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, enjoy the atmosphere at Batuu, and have breakfast at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo before visiting the Droid Depot. If it's a bit slower, this plan will still give you plenty of time to get to the Droid Depot for your reservation! How does that sound?

    If any other questions pop up before you hit hyperdrive, please, don't hesitate to come back. We love to help fellow star travelers!

    May the Force and the magic be with you,
