If you’re looking to face the crowds descending upon Black Spire Outpost with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on August 29th, rest assured that at least you’ll be able to do so with something in your belly. Disney’s Hollywood Studios opens at 6:00 AM for all guests on that day, with Extra, Extra Magic Hours offered at Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, opening at 7:00 AM that day and daily through November 2nd for resort guests.
Extra, Extra Magic Hours will also be coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios starting on September 1st, also running daily through November 2nd, with the park open from 6:00 to 9:00 AM exclusively for resort guests.
Disney has extended the hours of several quick service locations at resorts around the property to accommodate for guests leaving extra early to the parks. (Although who actually wants to eat anything at 2:30 AM is beyond me.) Hours are currently reflected online, and we’ve compiled a comprehensive list below of all the participating locations.

Disney usually makes these kinds of arrangements for runDisney events, but it appears they’re looking to be prepared for this upcoming Thursday as well. So far, it appears the bus transportation schedule has not been altered, with buses departing an hour before park open and return service available two hours after park close.
