    If our reservations for Savi’s workshop are at 9:10 am, will we be able to get in early or just have to try to rush to the back of the park to get there in time?

    Bright suns, Jennifer!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu.  It would be my pleasure to help you plan your trip to a galaxy far, far away.

    The Force is strong with my family, so we are really looking forward to building our own custom lightsabers at Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers during our visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge next month.  I'm so glad to hear that you are also planning to experience this unique activity during your visit. 

    Be sure to double-check the park hours before your trip.  Recently, Disney's Hollywood Studios has been opening at 7:00 a.m. to accommodate all of the guests wishing to join a boarding group to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.  Currently, Disney's Hollywood Studios is listed as opening at 7:00 a.m. through February 2, 2020, but park hours are always subject to change.  Those extended hours could possibly continue past that date, so I recommend looking into this before your visit.

    If Disney's Hollywood Studios has a 9:00 a.m. opening on the morning of your Savi's Workshop reservation, I would suggest arriving at the park gates no later than 8:30 a.m.  In my experience, I have always been able to enter the theme parks early if I had a reservation either before or very shortly after the scheduled park opening time.  I have found that there is usually a separate entrance line for guests who have early morning reservations, but if you're not sure where to go, just ask the nearest Cast Member.  They can point you in the right direction, and you should be able to arrive at your reservation without needing to make the jump to light speed. 

    Speaking of jumping to light speed, be sure to check out the adventure that some of my fellow panelists recently had on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.  Jennifer, I hope that you find all of this information helpful.  If you have any additional questions as you get ready to travel to Batuu, please visit us again.
