With a little more than a handful of rides and many more shows, Disney's Hollywood Studios®
is one of the most challenging parks for us frogs as far as touring goes! This is the one park you definitely want to get to before opening and/or absolutely make sure to use FastPass+. Disney typically opens the park 15 minutes before the scheduled opening, although this can vary depending on predicted crowds. We recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before park opening to be one of the first to ride the Toy Story Land rides
, then hop on over to Rock 'n Roller Coaster® Starring Aerosmith
and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ Attraction
Most of Disney's Hollywood Studios®
' other attractions and shows run from 25 to 60 minutes, some with fixed times throughout the day. For the best seats, plan to arrive at least 25 minutes ahead of time. Character greeting locations are spread throughout the park, and FastPass+ is not available for any of them. If characters are a priority, we recommend adding them in to the morning mix after the priority attractions.
, Disney's Hollywood Studios®
has instituted a tier system for its FastPass+ attractions and entertainment. Guests can make one selection from the Tier 1, or headliner attractions, and two selections from Tier 2.Disney's Hollywood Studios® FastPass+ Priority Attractions and Entertainment

Disney's Hollywood Studios 1-Day Park Plan
We’ve created this one-day park plan so you can experience the most popular attractions with the lowest waits, prioritizing rides that should be visited within the first hour, and within the first two and last two hours. This plan assumes you are starting within the first hour of park opening, taking a break in the afternoon and then returning in the evening. If you do not arrive ahead of park opening, head to Rock 'n Roller Coaster® Starring Aerosmith
and ride Slinky Dog Dash
later using FastPass+. With more shows at Disney's Hollywood Studios®
than the other Walt Disney World® Resort
parks, it is difficult to see them all in one day. We recommend you prioritize those you wish to see and skip those that you do not.
