Today is the day that theme park goers and "Star Wars" fans have been waiting for -- the opening of "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida.

Hollywood Studios opened at 6 a.m. Thursday for the grand opening of Galaxy's Edge. About an hour later, the park was at capacity. Also, as of 7 a.m., only guests who signed up for the virtual line could get into Galaxy's Edge, and the much-anticipated "Millennium Falcon" ride had a wait time of 300 minutes.
