If you are headed to Disney Hollywood Studios on a busy day, there are some attractions that you will absolutely need fastpasses for in order to experience them without waiting in a long queue.
When booking the fastpasses, you should understand that for Hollywood Studios, there are 2 tiers of Fastpasses. You will be allowed to choose one attraction from Tier 1 and two attractions from Tier 2. Here is a breakdown of the attractions in each Tier:
Tier One (Choose One):
- Beauty and the Beast Live On Stage
- Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
- The Great Movie Ride
- Toy Story Mania!
Tier Two (Choose Two):
- Disney Junior – Live on Stage!
- For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration
- Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular!
- Muppet*Vision 3D
- Star Tours – The Adventures Continue
- The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™
- Voyage of The Little Mermaid
If you are planning on riding the Toy Story Midway Mania! attraction, you really need to get fastpasses to that attraction. Right after rope drop (opening of the park), people literally run to that attraction. Quickly the queues accumulate to over 80 minutes. Assuming you chose that as you one selection for Tier One, we move on to Tier Two.
From Tier Two, you should choose the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror if you want to ride that attraction with someone else. There are single rider lines for that attraction so if not, you could choose a different attraction from Tier Two. Star Tours also accumulates long lines, especially since the release of the newest Star Wars movies!
That is the best advice for Hollywood Studios. Remember, get your Fastpasses early so you can get exactly what you are looking to ride!
