I'm not attached to being among the first to get in... I have a 9am ADR for Oga's, so I assume I'll be able to get in then AND I'll be able to get some sleep. But I'd like to at least see some of the goings-on pre-opening and opening - if I arrive too late to get right into GE, I'm fine with doing other things at DHS until I can get into GE with my ADR. My conundrum is about what time I should plan to arrive and how to get there. @yulilin3 any thoughts on if the DHS parking lot is likely to fill to capacity, and if so, how early that might happen? I was thinking about driving over around 4am. But if buses start running at 4:30, maybe that would be better? IDK.
The parking lot is so big now, I doubt it hitting capacity and if it fits, I don't think it will until 11ish.

    most of us are thinking midnight. Rumors are that they will try and open the park by 3am to let people queue inside. Anothe rumor is that they might use Indiana Jones theater as a gathering place
    OK, thanks! I've been following this thread for weeks, but it helps to see it condensed into what the latest wisdom is. :yoda:

    After getting shut out of Oga's/Savi/Droid Depot, I guess I'm just hoping to be able to ride MFSR and be able to walk the land with some blue milk. Letting whatever else happens happen!

    According to the WDW web site it stated there will be a "limited" amount of walkups, so while you are wondering ask away!!

    Assuming this info about getting in an hour before your reservation is accurate and gaurantees you entry to GE.....

    For those who have reservations for an activity in Galaxy's Edge on opening day, what time are you planning on arriving at HS?
    Are you still getting there as early as possible?
    Or will you adjust your schedule at get there a little later?

    Do we know for sure this is true? Also for Savi can you carry the lightsaber on the plane? Do they offer shipping back home?

    Still shooting for 6AM for MFSR even with my reservations for Savis at 10 and Ogas at 11:30 . Plan to walk around for bit and then have an ADR for breakfast at 8:00 so will leave and come back at 9:15 for my reservations. Plan to stay until about 12. That should be more than enough to see everything and be done with the land for my vacay.

    This cleared up our day in HS, when we booked WAAAAY back in Feb and then decided to use a Thursday for HS as thinking was it was middle of the week, end of August, it should be lower crowds. ADR's booked, then BAM WDW decided to open SWGE on that very Thursday, go figure.......Then they tossed this silly "1" FP+ for HS, seriously??? But to our benefit, reservations just opened on the same day I was messing around on the WDW site, cleared things up tremendously as I honestly did not want to head over to HS before the sun came up. I was lucky enough to snag all 3 reservations for SWGE, 2 in the AM and one for a nightcap, so our time in GE will be spread throughout the day and now does NOT dictate to us to get up so early, granted the reservation system does work and they do indeed honor the times, will see but as I am continually reviewing this board for any new 411, so many thanks to all who have posted, so much info in here!!!

    A little of both... with a 9am reservation, I feel no need to line up at midnight since I know I can get into GE at 8. But I'd also like to see how they handle the grand opening and experience some of it, so I'm leaning toward heading over around 3:30-4am. If that happens to get me into GE at opening, great - but if it doesn't, I'll go grab breakfast and/or do some rides in DHS and go to GE an hour before my reservation. In either case, I assume I'll be hot, tired and ready to leave by around 11am and will head back to my hotel for some AC and rest.

    But I also have another reservation at 6pm, so I'll head back for that, planning to enter GE at 5pm.

    Curious to see how this effects the rest of HS. Will people stay away from the park unless they specifically wanted to get into GE?

    Dont think so as TSL is still VERY popular as well as the ToT and RRC.........
