'Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge' officially opens today at Disney's Hollywood Studios

On Thursday, Walt Disney World officially opened their newest addition to Hollywood Studios.

'Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge' opened at 6 a.m. on Thursday after years of anticipation. However, according to this Twitter post, people began lining up as early as 3:30 a.m.



Only one ride was open to the public on Thursday: 'Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.' Riders receive a role before boarding -- either pilot, engineer, or gunner -- and embark on an adventure through space. A second ride, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance,' will open on December 5th.

According to Twitter users, wait times on Thursday morning got up to six hours long.



However, when Fox 35 checked the DisneyParks App at 9:05 a.m., the wait was at just 180 minutes.

The rest of Disney's Hollywood Studios and Walt Disney World's other parks stayed mostly quiet Thursday morning.





Several merchandise shops at 'Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge' will be open on Thursday. For example, 'Savi's Workshop' allows guests to build their own custom lightsaber, while 'Droid Depot' allows guests to design, assemble, and activate a customized droid of their liking.

Shop 'Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities' had quite the hefty line on Thursday morning though, even reaching 90 minutes at one point.

Visitors can choose from several dining options, including 'Oga's Cantina' and 'Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo.' Other food items, like 'blue milk' or 'Saka's Kettle,' will be available at the land's food stands.



Passholders and employees have already gotten a sneak peak the land over the last few weeks.

The land received less attendance than expected, with some sources blaming all the hype. "Tourists fear the anticipated crowds and the Los Angeles locals seem to be waiting out the summer crowds too," an employee who spoke to Fox Business under anonymity said.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Dorian is expected to hit Florida on Monday, specifically hitting Orlando as a Category 2 hurricane. Walt Disney World has not yet announced if they will close any of their parks during the storm.
