    We're visiting in September to visit Hollywood's Studio Galaxy Edge. Is Sunday when most people are heading home a good idea since they have a 6:00 a.m. opening for Resort guests, your thoughts? Are fastpasses for Millennium Falcon available?

    Hi, Darlene!  Or as they say on the planet Batuu, "Bright suns!"

    I am so excited that you are planning your very own Star Wars adventure for this fall when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I had the opportunity to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge when it first opened at Disneyland Resort.  As a lifelong Star Wars fan, the opportunity to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run was a childhood dream come true.  FastPass+ will not be offered for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attractions when this immersive new land first opens.  However, I think that you will find the opportunity to complete a mission aboard the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs to be well worth the wait.

    At this time, it is hard to say what crowds will be like when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens at the Walt Disney World Resort.  As Yoda once said, "The dark side clouds everything.  Impossible to see the future is."  It is difficult to say if one day of the week would be better to visit than another.  I would recommend you visit when it best fits into your own vacation itinerary.  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will be able to take advantage of the extra, Extra Magic Hours benefit.

    It was recently announced that there will be extra, Extra Magic Hours offered this fall to help accommodate guests wishing to travel to the planet Batuu.  Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel will have access to Disney's Hollywood Studios daily from September 1 to November 2, 2019, from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.  During extra, Extra Magic Hours, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be open, as well as Toy Story Land and select other attractions.  Please be aware that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and its experiences will be subject to capacity restrictions.

    As you prepare for your adventures in a galaxy far, far away, be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog.  Any additional news and announcements regarding the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be discussed on the Disney Parks Blog.

    May the Force be with you!
