The following tips will help you navigate the park opening procedures at Hollywood Studios. Note that Disney occasionally tinkers with its opening procedures, so the information here is subject to change.

Virtually all rides will begin operation as soon as guests are admitted into the park. Shows normally begin running an hour or so after the rest of the park.

The Studios’ typical official opening time was 10 a.m., and 9 a.m. on holidays and other days of peak attendance. In practice, the park was admitting guests anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes before official opening on most days. Bus service, Skyliner service, and the Studios parking lot were accessible to guests anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes before official opening.

All guests not making use of Disney’s Early Theme Park Entry program should arrive at the Studios entrance 60 minutes before official opening on off-peak days and 90 minutes before official opening on days with high attendance.

On-site guests taking part in Early Entry should arrive at the Studios entrance 60 minutes before official opening (that is, 30 minutes before Early Entry) on all days. Off-site guests should arrive 30 minutes before official opening on all days.
