We visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios just before Labor Day weekend. Let’s take a look at what the park had in store for us!

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge entrance

Through this tunnel we enter a galaxy far, far away…

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance downtime

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance went down for technical difficulties shortly after distributing Boarding Groups. The downtime lasted for about an hour, but that did not dissuade guests from waiting outside the entrance for it to reopen.
