In Part 2 of this 4 part series Jillian discusses best uses of the FastPass+ system at Hollywood Studios. You can find part 1, on Epcot, here. Stay tuned for the rest of the series!
Here is the next installment on choosing FastPass+ attractions, this time in Hollywood Studios. Like Epcot, the FastPass are tiered. Once again I will make suggestions for children under 40 inches, children taller than that, and thrill seekers.
Group A (choose 1)
• Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage
• Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
• The Great Movie Ride
• Toy Story Midway Mania!
Group B (choose 2)
• Disney Junior – Live on Stage!
• Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!
• Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show
• Muppet Vision 3D
• Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
• The American Idol Experience
• The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
• Voyage of the Little Mermaid
In Group A for children who don’t make the 40 inch mark, Toy Story Midway Mania is going to be your priority. This line can get very long so it is worth it to get the FastPass for this. The two for Group B I suggest are, Disney Junior-Live on Stage and Voyage of the Little Mermaid. Those two are stage shows sure to make any child happy.
For children over 40 inches tall in Group A I would still get Toy Story Midway Mania for reasons above and in Group B I would choose Star Tours and Voyage of the Little Mermaid. Though if they are brave I would suggest the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror for them.
Thrill seekers should take bit of a different route, in Group A choose Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and make sure that the first ride you do is Toy Story Midway Mania. For Group B you will want to choose Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Star Tours.
One little tip I do have is if you are planning to do a meal in Hollywood Studios for lunch or dinner book the Fantasmic! Dinner Package. This will get you preferred seating and then you won’t have to use a FastPass+ to get a great seat at Fantasmic.
And don’t forget I’ll be there to walk you through FastPass+ selections in Animal Kingdom in our next installment.
