Bright Suns from Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Galaxy’s Edge! This morning, we decided to arrive at the park at 6:30 a.m. to check out the crowds and opening for Rise of the Resistance, since it has been open for a full week now. Let’s check it out!

As soon as we entered the park, we saw everyone else halt to start booking their boarding groups for Rise of the Resistance. In order to reserve a group, you must first be scanned into the park.

Galaxy’s Edge 12/13/19 1

We went on back to Galaxy’s Edge to check out the crowd level. It was surprisingly pretty empty. Guests walked calmly to that section of the park or went elsewhere to ride other attractions.

If you ever wanted to take a picture in the market or in front of any of the vehicles without dozens of other families in the background, this is the time to do so!
