    Ww are booked for the first week in September. What effect to you think the new star wars opening will have on the other 3 parks?

    Hi Dana!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It is true to say there has been a huge amount of excitement around Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, with the opening date recently being announced for 29th August at Walt Disney World. I cannot wait to be transported to Batuu and become totally immersed in the story. Can you imagine taking the controls of the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run? However, when Walt Disney World opens something so spectacular (remember Pandora - The World of Avatar, and Toy Story Land?) everyone wants to experience it. No-one knows where most Guests will be spending their time, but Disney's Hollywood Studios will likely be much busier than usual. If you are heading to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, please note that it will be available during Extra Magic Hours, and capacity will be limited. In addition, at this time, no FastPass+ will be offered for the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. I recommend using Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, making your FastPass+ reservations at those parks as soon as they become available (60 days in advance for Disney Resort hotel guests) and ensure all your dining reservations are in place by using the My Disney Experience mobile app. I am also visiting in September, and am looking forward to spending time at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach, and enjoying some relaxation at Disney Springs. With careful forward planning, your magical vacation awaits you!
