Hollywood Studios Touring Plan – Without Fast Passes

by Jamie Rumph

As I’m sure you’ve guessed, Hollywood Studios is high on everyone’s list to visit while in town thanks to Galaxy’s Edge and Rise of the Resistance! Although that is a big draw, there are many other exciting rides to experience in this park and they fill up fast. This park isn’t the largest, but due to its many in demand attractions you definitely need to have a plan before you arrive. And of course, I’ve included tips for how to get a boarding pass for Rise of the Resistance!

A couple other key points to keep in mind are:

  • A reservation is required ahead of time to enter the park and can be made by clinking the link in your My Disney Experience app.
  • Weekdays are less busy with shorter wait times and preferred if you can manage it
  • Be sure to check the park hours in advance and double check again the night before you plan to visit as they often vary between days and can change.
  • Wait times are often shown longer than they actually are (which is good news!)

Arrival to Hollywood Studios

On your Hollywood Studios day, you’ll want to arrive 30 minutes to 45 minutes prior to park opening time.  

When you enter the park go straight down the main street (Hollywood Blvd) and try to ignore all those fun shops (you can come back to them later). When you see Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway resist the urge to get in line and instead take a slight right and head to Toy Story Land.
