    Hello Edgar,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Your Walt Disney World vacation is coming up quickly, so let's see if we can get all of your plans finalized, so that the only thing you need to worry about is making some magical memories!

    I'm not sure if you've seen the park reservation availability calendar yet, but during your stay the dates are highlighted yellow. This means that only some parks are available, mainly EPCOT and Disney's Animal Kingdom. While I'm looking at the calendar right now, I see that Magic Kingdom is available for Saturday, April 30. I would make that reservation first, because it will probably go quickly. 

    The good news is that you have added the Park Hopper Option to your tickets. So even though Disney's Hollywood Studios is not available in the reservation calendar, you'll still be able to include it in your daily vacation plans. At 2:00 PM on any given day, you can head to that park without a reservation as long as you've checked into the park where you have a reservation first. For example, on Friday, April 29, you could make a reservation for EPCOT. Spend the morning enjoying attractions there, then head to Hollywood Studios any time after 2:00 PM. Because you're staying at Disney's BoardWalk Inn, you could also easily stop at your resort on the way for a swim in the pool or to simply relax in your room.

    You can also purchase Individual Lightning Lanes beginning at 7:00 AM for a park that you plan on hopping to later in the day. If Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is on your "must do" list, you could purchase it on any morning of your trip, just make sure you select a time that is after 2:00 PM. 

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
