Here are 5 tips for Disney’s Hollywood Studios:
What is the secret to securing a spot at the Jedi Training Academy?
Jedi Training Academy is one of the most popular events at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Which is why it takes a little bit of strategy to secure a spot for one of the shows during the day! One popular strategy is to arrive at Disney’s Hollywood Studios about 45 minutes before the scheduled park opening time. Occasionally they will open the park 20-30 minutes before the published time. This allows guests to walk, not run, to the popular attractions. By arriving about 45 minutes before the scheduled park opening, and heading straight to Jedi Training Academy, you should be able to get a spot in one of the shows. Another strategy is to get a pre park opening reservation for Breakfast at Hollywood and Vine. If Hollywood Studios opens at 9AM, try to get a breakfast time for 8AM or 8:30. This will put you in the park early, and gives you an opportunity to make it to JTA at a decent time.
What attractions are there at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for my preschooler to enjoy?
Disney’s Hollywood Studios has several attractions and shows for the younger guests in your party. Disney, Jr. Live on Stage, as well as a breakfast or lunch at Play and Dine at Hollywood and Vine will put you and your little one up close and personal with his or her favorite Disney Jr. characters. Disney’s Voyage of the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage are also perfect entertainment for younger children. Toy Story Midway Mania does not have a height requirement, so even the youngest ones in your family can enjoy it.
What is the Fantasmic Dinner Package?
The Fantasmic Dinner Package allows you a meal at one of three locations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Hollywood Brown Derby, Hollywood and Vine, and Mama Melrose’s. At Hollywood and Vine and Mama Melrose’s, this is counted as one table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan. Brown Derby is a signature restaurant, so it counts as two. The Fantasmic Dining Package is available on the first showing of Fantasmic that evening, and you should plan on arriving 30 minutes before the show starts.
Are there character meet and greets at Disney’s Hollywood Studios?
Yes! Buzz and Woody are available for meet and greets across from Toy Story Midway Mania, and you’ll often seen Donald, Daisy, or Pluto near The Great Movie Ride.
