Hiya, pals! The opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is FINALLY happening…TOMORROW! And to prepare, Disney World has been making a few changes around the resorts for the big opening weekend.
Earlier we shared that select counter service locations around the Disney World hotels would be opening EARLY to ensure that guests’ bellies are full before their adventure to the planet of Batuu. But now we’re back to share that Disney has also extended the hours for the resort buses and Friendship Boats!
Hollywood Studios will open to the public at 6 AM this weekend for the grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. And beginning on September 1st, Disney World resort guests and guests staying at select neighborhood hotels will have access to EXTRA, Extra Magic Hours, which will still let them access Hollywood Studios at 6 AM.
To accommodate guests in terms of transportation for these extended park hours, Disney has decided to extend the hours of the resort buses and Friendship Boats, as well.
Below is the schedule for the Friendship Boats according to the sign we found at Yacht and Beach Club today.
August 28th: 6:30 AM – 9:30 PM
August 29th: 3:30 AM – 1:30 AM
August 30th through September 28th: 4:30 AM – midnight
The buses will run starting at 3:30 am on August 29th!
