All About Our Day At Disney's Hollywood Studios #Disney

We recently took a 7 night Disney World vacation!! We stayed at https://www.wyndhambonnetcreek.com/ 
We rented a two bedroom condo that had a beautiful view of the lake and a swimming pool. The condo had a full kitchen with oven, microwave, full size refrigerator and dishwasher! The condo also had a washer/dryer which was great. Today I'm going to share with ya'll our day at Hollywood Studios. 

Due to Covid the theme parks have had their hours reduced. Currently Hollywood Studios is open from 9 am to 7 pm, however to minimize crowds forming at security at the entrance Disney has been allowing guests to enter the park as early as 8:00 am. We arrived around 8:15 am. We were able to park super close to the entrance. We went through the temperature check and then the bag check. Sidenote: Disney does not allow any masks that are gaiter style masks or any mask that has a outside filter attachment. Once inside the park we headed directly to Star Wars Galaxy's Edge. The first ride we rode was the Star War's: Millinneum Falcon: Smugglers Run. The wait time was about 45 minutes. Sadly we were unable to secure passes for the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. These become available at 7 am on the dot on the Disney Parks app. I was literally on the app at 6:55 am and I was still unable to secure passes. They do release more passes at 1:00 pm for guests that are in the park. We did not try to get the passes again. After the Star War's section my kids wanted to go to Toy Story Land which is directly beside Star Wars Galaxy Edge. 





We did happen to catch a few cavalcade's. We saw the Incredibles and Sully while we were eating. Side note: We brought a soft sided cooler with lunch and drinks.  Speaking of eating, you can only take your mask off in designated area's to eat or drink. You may not eat or drink in lines. Disney is really good about keeping guests 6 ft apart while waiting in lines for the rides. They have place markers on the ground. 

After riding Toy Story Mania (20 minute wait), Slinky Dog Dash (45 minute wait) and the Alien Swirling Saucers (10 minute wait) we took some photos and headed to Echo Lake to ride Star Tours. My kids loved loved loved Slinky Dog Dash!! This was their favorite ride of the day. We picked up a snack at Marketplace Snacks Booth which has DOLE WHIPS!! We opted for the classic Mickey ice cream bar $6 each! 


After a nice snack we headed to Sunset Boulevard to ride the Tower of Terror. My kids loved this ride!! The wait time was about 30 minutes. Next up we rode Rock N Roller Coaster. The wait time was only about 25 minutes in the late afternoon. My kids loved this so much that they begged to ride it again. So we rode it again HAHA. Then we went to Lightening McQueen's Racing Academy to cool off in the air conditioning. This is a great place to go when it is super hot outside. This is a cute 20 minute indoor show featuring a talking Lightening McQueen. Then my youngest daughter and I rode the new Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway. The wait time pretty much all day was 60 minutes but around 5:45 we noticed the wait time had dropped to 25 minutes so we headed there. This is such a cute ride, be sure to make time for it!! I'd recommend the later afternoon.




We discovered that if you are in line for an attraction 5 minutes prior to the park closing that they will allow you to stay and ride the ride. Also, the shops stay open after park closing. So at 7 pm even though attractions were no longer accepting riders in their lines we were still able to go in the shops on Sunset Boulevard.







Overall, we had a great day at Hollywood Studio's! We were able to ride everything that we had hoped to ride except for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. I highly recommend arriving at the parks at least 30 minutes before they officially open.
