Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening day crowds at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opened earlier this morning to huge crowds at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Parking lots opened around 4am, and transportation from the Disney resorts began at 3:30am.

Crowds quickly filled Hollywood Blvd before beginning a controlled walk through the park towards Galaxy's Edge.

With a short wait on Grand Avenue, guests were allowed into the land at 4:50am.

Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run immediately hit a 150 minute wait with the queue tailing back to the entrance of the land.

At 5:30am, the wait time had quickly increased to 300 minutes from the entrance to Smugglers Run, but the line is being held at the entrance of the land, so the actual wait is longer.

Disney's virtual queue in My Disney Experience is on standby, but has not yet been put into use.
