Here’s my list of Disney’s Hollywood Studios Hacks
Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
Want to be the rebel spy?
Outside of winking at the camera and wearing a shirt that says “PICK ME!”, there’s actually a hack. When you sit down, put your seatbelt on and just enjoy the time until the ride starts BEFORE putting on your 3D glasses. It may not be a guarantee, but your chances are going up substantially!
Tower of Terror
When you walk into the pre-show room, ie the Library, you’ll want to stand in the far corner away from the tv. After the video, you’ll notice that the wall next to you will open and congratulations….you’re ahead of everyone else!
Left or Right?
Oh, when you’re walking to the elevators there’s a choice to make. Do you go right or left….and the answer is…depends 100% on how many elevators they are running that day. Sometimes it’s the left side and sometimes it’s the right side.
When theme parks close, you don’t want to be stuck in crowds when you can be enjoying the theming and excitement of shopping on the main stretch of the Studios. Know ahead of time that shops stay open for one hour after the last attraction closes…so you’re able to get your last minute shopping done without standing in terrible lines for transportation with everyone else!
Rock n Rollercoaster
Single Rider Line
Want to ride with Aerosmith but not stand in a huge line? You’ll actually get to bypass the regular standby queue by using the single rider line, which fills empty seats in the ride vehicle from groups of 1, 3, 5, 7, etc. With every ride, know that your just making another friend who probably has never been on the ride before!
Brave enough to sit in the front row?
Just ask the cast member at the front of the line if you can wait for the front and they’ll direct you to a separate part of the waiting area for the next Super-Stretch Limo. It’s definitely worth it
Hope that you got some fun hacks, insights and tips that will allow you to enjoy your time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
