Each major theme park in Orlando has Relaxation Stations. These are designated areas at which masks can be removed as you sit and relax for a bit. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios there are two Relaxation Stations. They provide a restful area whether you want to enjoy your snack or drink, or just have a place to sit down for a few minutes. Here’s everything you need to know about the Relaxation Stations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Location of Relaxation Stations at Hollywood Studios
The Relaxation Stations at Hollywood Studios are both Star Wars based. The first is located at Star Wars Launch Bay, which is in the right hand side of the park, not too far from Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. This station is mostly indoors, which may not make every guest comfortable with taking their mask off (myself included). It is a cool, themed area and some guests may appreciate the air conditioning. There is a covered portion just before entering the building.
The second location was inside Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, and it was difficult to find, and was quite small compared to how popular this part of the park is.
Now there is a new location. The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is now a Relaxation Station, providing a much larger and more convenient location.
How to Use Relaxation Stations at Hollywood Studios
No reservations are needed for the Relaxation Stations, but they can reach capacity. Lunch time is the most popular time for using the stations. The tables are placed six feet or more apart, and should not be moved. If you have a larger group it is asked that you keep your party at the designated tables and not combine them.
It is asked that all guests keep their masks on until they are at their table. Once you are at the table, you can remove your mask whether you have food and drink, or if you just want to relax. There is no time limit on using the stations. If you need to get up from your table, or whenever you are done, it is asked that you put your mask back on before moving around.
Cast Members frequently clean and sanitize the tables, chairs, and the general area. The Relaxation Stations can have limited hours. They do not always open right when the park opens, and generally close a little earlier than the park itself does.
MARCH 2021 UPDATE – We are seeing 30 minute limit signs in certain stations, perhaps due to Spring Break. We’ll be on the lookout once Spring Break subsides.
