With the Grand Opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge occurring tomorrow, August 29, Disney is extending transportation offerings for guests. As you know, Disney’s Hollywood Studios opens at 6:00 am tomorrow for all guests, meaning people need a way to get to the park even earlier to be the first in line!

To accommodate, transportation services will be available at extremely early hours starting tomorrow.

Friendship Boats

Today, Friendship Boats will run until 9:30 pm.

Service will start at 3:30 am tomorrow, August 29 for guests seeking to get to Disney’s Hollywood Studios bright and early. Service will conclude at 1:30 am.

For August 30 through September 28, service will start at 4:30 am and run until midnight.


Busses will also start service at 3:30 am to help guests get access to the parks. Service will conclude two hours after park close.

Looking to grab a bite before heading to Batuu? Select quick service restaurants will also be offering extended hours through September. You can check out the full list of locations, plus their hours, here.

We hope you enjoy your adventures in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

Thanks. Valuable info. Does anyone know if one will be able to access the bus to Hollywood Studios from Epcot by 5 AM? Now that one must go through bag check to even get to the buses, I wonder. Yes, of course, I can go directly to HS or even park at one of the values and access bus early.
