Toy Story Mania Will Change FastPass+ and Capacity in April and May

Share This!

Update March 31, 2018

When Toy Story Land opens, Toy Story Mania’s entrance will flip to the opposite side of the building, moving from its current location in Pixar Place to the new Land. Since January, Disney has been working on reconfiguring the queue. During this time, only two of the three ride tracks have been operational. From April 9 to May 7, Toy Story Mania will not offer FastPass+. This suggests that the capacity of the ride is going to vary during the final phase of the construction.

Because this is an unprecedented temporary change, we’re not going to include Toy Story Mania wait times in our analysis of actual crowd levels at Disney Hollywood Studios.

Touring without a Toy Story Mania FastPass

It will be best to arrive at Hollywood Studios early and ride Toy Story Mania first. If you want to ride Toy Story Mania later in the day, as with all Touring Plans, you should re-optimize after every few steps. This will incorporate updates in wait time predictions at all the attractions.

Everything looks fine at Hollywood Studios, until you turn your head.

This line wraps several times and is a posted 85 minute wait. And that’s with FastPass+ running, too.

 

Even Jessie has been roped into the construction. Get it? Roped into? I crack myself up.

    The big question is whether TSMM will completely shut down in the days leading up to the June 30 opening.

    I honestly don’t think dropping the Fast Passes is going to create that large a difference in wait times since the main line will not be interrupted constantly by allowing FP riders in.

    However, that being said, shutting a line down is going to be pretty bad for wait times.

    So what will happen in June? Rumors of a complete shutdown are going around, but do you think it will last the whole month up until opening of TSL. We’re going the week before the new land opens and I’m not sure what to do!

    Just tried making FP reservations to TSMM at the 60 day reservation mark and NONE were available for a trip late April. Ugh.

    With everything shut down in the Studios there should be character meet and greets galore everywhere to help eat up people. Any little thing to help
