    Star Wars puts this park over the top. First priority is getting a boarding group for RotR.
    I can think of no better place for a theme park junkie to get a strong dose of excitement than the updated Hollywood Studios. Both the "Rise of the Resistance" and "Millenium Falcon: Smuggler's Run" attractions inside of the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge area of the park are fabulous. And they're surrounded by an area of shops, restaurants and a famous cantina from the films that make you feel like you are on an actual movie set of a planet in a galaxy far, far away. Be advised that as of the writing of this review it may be difficult to get to see or do many things in this theme area without reservations or at least prior planning. Ogs's Cantina is taking reservations up to 180 days in advance and the day I visited the park they were all sold out with only the opportunity for cancellations. Likewise the Droid Depot (build your own droid) and Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers require reservations and have very limited access at this time. You must absolutely download and become familiar with the My Disney Experience app to help you make reservations and for getting a boarding group number for Rise of the Resistance (until further notice) as it is not available on Fastpass. To get your boarding group number you will have to have your ticket(s) linked to your account on the app, enter the park prior to opening time (everyone), and then request a boarding group number at official park opening time. Be prepared to act exactly at park opening time. On the Galaxy's Edge splash screen you will click on "find out more", then on the next screen click on "Join Boarding Group". The app will then take a few seconds to load the names of all of the people you have linked to your account. If they are all riding you have to click on each and then proceed to request a group number that your party will be assigned. I got boarding group four and the man standing next to me had a problem in that he didn't immediately understand adding the people in his party. Less than a minute later he was in group 70. Anything over 63 was considered standby. If you do not act quickly there is a good chance you will not ride that day. I had lots of luck using the single rider line for Smuggler's run so don't be afraid to try that if you aren't fussy about being split up. The advertised wait on the app was 90 minutes and I was on the ride in 20. Last, note that there are only a couple of rides that are appropriate for very small children in this park along with a few shows like Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid and Frozen.
    Terry, thanks so much for this wonderful review of our Park! There’s a lot to love about Disney’s Hollywood Studios—especially with the recent addition of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge—and your review truly says it all. I especially appreciate you sharing your helpful tips on utilizing the My Disney Experience app as it pertains to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. One of my favorite ways to see and do even more during a visit to the Theme Parks is by utilizing the single-rider line where it’s offered. My family and I have had similar experiences as yours—waiting significantly less time being split up here than if we were to have joined the standby line together. So I’m delighted to hear this option worked out for you and your family as well. Thank you again for your insightful and detailed review. We can’t wait to see you again for another intergalactic adventure. AJ Disney Social Reviews

    Galaxy’s Edge
    We arrived early and had managed to get a fast pass for Tower of Terror while doing single rider on Aerosmith Rock'n'Rollercoaster. Next up was Slinky Dog where we waited around 45 minutes. Star Tours and The Muppets were all done before the main event - Galaxy's Edge. When we booked the opening date hadn't been advised and when they announced it a month before our arrival we thought we wouldn't get into this area never mind get on the Millennium Falcon and a time slot at Oga's Cantina. The attention to detail here is staggering and seeing a full size MF is jaw dropping, but there was too many (overpriced) shops and not enough "action", and Smuggler's Run was underwhelming even as a pilot (we also did engineers). Hopefully the recent opening of Rise of the Resistance improves the experience. Oga's is great though with again attention to detail and atmosphere, but again the pricing is eye watering - $42 for a souvenir cup with a soft drink ?!? We left the park and returned when dark and there seemed to be a different / better vibe to Galaxy's Edge and when we had our Oga's Cantina time slot. Smugglers Run wasn't busy so we tried it a agin and remaisn underwhelming. We also got onto Toy Story Mania with little queue time later in the day and bagged a last minute FP for Tower of Terror (in the dark). Some good shopping and themed restaurants too.
    I have to say, I'm definitely impressed to see you were able to get so much done in one day, and even had the chance to experience everything the Theme Park has to offer! After all, where else can you go from visiting Andy's Backyard in one minute, then finding yourself in worlds unknown like Batuu? Even though you didn't find Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run as enjoyable as you thought it would be, I'm happy to hear you were able to experience what it's like to take a trip through hyperspace more than once. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! I hope you can make it back for another galactic getaway real soon. Pete Disney Social Reviews

    Rise of the Resistance is incredible!
    My wife and I went to the park, and everything you have read about arriving early is correct if you want to have a chance of getting on Rise of the Resistance. We also arrived early so that we could get closer to the front of the line for the Millennium Falcon ride first thing. One tip about the boarding passes for the RotR...we were ready to go at 8:00 and ... the button on our phone didn't work to join the boarding group! Everyone around us was excited about getting a boarding pass and I was frantically pushing the button with nothing happening. I ended up trying to go in through the My Status button which acted like a back door as in that new screen I was able to select to join a boarding group. Keep that in mind. We ended up getting boarding group 89 which was a backup group with no guarantees. Lucky enough, we did get on the ride around 3:30pm. All of the passes were gone in about 30 seconds after 8:00am, so you really have no choice but to get there and be inside the park for the opening time. I can understand the frustration many people have written who did not get a pass and I'm not sure this is the really the best way to manage the ride, but I'm happy it worked out for me. As for the ride, we loved it. Just an incredible experience that I won't spoil here. Along with Flight of Passage (in Pandora, Animal Kingdom), this is our favourite ride of our trip. The rest of the Star Wars park makes you feel like you are in the movies. All of the small details make it feel real. We had breakfast in Hanger 7 and enjoyed it. We had booked our trip late, so we were not able to get reservations for any of the extras like building a lightsaber, but I'm not sure I would spend $200 to do that. The ones I saw did look great though. The Millennium Falcon ride was great, and we were able to get on a second time in the evening when the wait times tended to be much shorter, around 25 minutes. Some comments note that the pilot role is the one you want, but we didn't get to do that and still enjoyed it. I'm not sure it would have changed our experience. As for the rest of the park, we enjoyed everything we did. Tower of Terror is a lot of fun. The Aerosmith coaster is fun but as it is in the dark, I don't find it as thrilling when you don't really see what is coming. The Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular is old now but I still enjoyed it, and I've seen it 3 times over the years (the last time 8 years ago). We did not go on anything in Toy Story Land, so no comments on that area of the park. Overall, a great day! Now we just need to rest our feet...

Went to Hollywood studios Jan 2019, and saw that they were working on Galaxy's Edge, so being a huge Star wars fan I was very excited for it to open! Living out of state I am only able to get there once a year. Booked flight and hotel in Kissimmee, FL and planned on visiting Hollywood studios for one day to get the experience. Learned before going that they don't allow you to dress up, (they apparently don't know their fan base) discouraged, I saw videos of the rides and the build a lightsaber shop there and thought,"cool I would like to do that" fast forward after getting to the park after spending a ridiculous amount of money to get in, the resistance ride was booked for the day, Cantina was reservation only, light saber shop was booked out for the next month and the smugglers run was ok at best after the 70 min wait. Blew my mind that I couldn't do the things I went there to do after waiting that long. Long story short they didn't build Galaxy's Edge large enough to accommodate the influx of people that they get, they really dropped the ball on a huge opportunity. The park I was able to see was well done.

I've always enjoyed this park, but I'm extremely annoyed with park management's decision to continue to use its current virtual queue system for the Rise of the Resistance (RoR) ride.

The RoR virtual queue is designed to reduce the time spent physically waiting in line for the ride by allowing park guests to enter a virtual queue through the My Disney Experience mobile app. The concept behind a virtual queue makes a lot of sense for a very popular attraction like RoR, and I think it's a great idea in theory because it allows guests to enjoy other things in the park while waiting in line for this ride.

However, one major issue with this virtual queue system is that it is set up so that ALL RoR queue positions for a given day become available immediately when the park opens. This means that the only way to grab a virtual spot in line for this ride is by being physically IN the park right when the park opens, which can be as early as 8:00 AM. Moreover, because such large crowds have been swarming the park very early in the morning recently, all RoR queue positions are usually taken within one minute of park opening. A large number of people may therefore head to the park earlier than they otherwise would only to discover that there are no additional RoR spots left for them. That must be pretty infuriating for a lot of people who do their best to plan this out.

I'm sorry, but if I'm on vacation, I absolutely do NOT want to wake up at 6 or 7 in the morning for one ride. The fact that I will need to do this if I want to experience RoR is completely absurd.

I certainly want to experience the RoR ride, but I don't feel it's fair to make me jump through so many ridiculous hoops to do so. I can understand why the park wants to continue using the virtual queue system due to the ride's popularity, but I think a better compromise would be to open some number of RoR virtual queue passes at various intervals throughout the day, rather than dumping them into the My Disney Experience app all at once early in the morning.

Or better yet, I think management should consider a system that somehow combines the FastPass+ system with RoR's current virtual queue system. Why not allow guests to simply reserve their spot in line 30 or 60 days in advance in the same way FastPass+ allows? Why does this particular ride warrant a completely different system than what has been in use for years?

For the price I am paying to stay on property in a deluxe resort and for a Signature Dining Plan, the least WDW can do is give me the opportunity to experience ANY ride in the parks as long as I am willing to plan accordingly. This is why I view the FastPass+ system as the most reasonable and fair option currently, and it's why I would much rather rely on this system than what is currently in use for Rise of the Resistance.

Bought Tix 1 day in advance while at Epcot because we wanted to experience the new Star Wars features. Were told at purchase, only fast passes were for old things like Muppets 3d, Indiana Jones, etc. Star Wars Rebellion is supposed to be available via the Disney app once in park. Schedule says park opens at 8. We arrived at 8 and signs out front of security said all Rebellion groups were already taken. Strike 1. Headed to new Star Wars area and it was packed and decided to do Millennium Falcon. Line wound through that area almost to Toy Story Land. 2 hours later, we got to the 5 minute experience. Every ride in park had waits from 1-2 hours including older rides like Tower of Terror, Rockin Roller Coaster and food lines were crazy, 20 minutes to get a grilled cheese and a water. 10 hours in the park and we rode 6 rides and saw the VERY dated Muppets 3D. It'll only get worse when Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Coaster opens in March. Distribution of fast passes to Disney Hotel guests and pre-purchases weeks in advance makes that system useless to average visitors, condemning them to very long standby lines. Passes to Star Wars Rebellion are nearly impossible to get for average visitors. There are 30-40 minute waits to meet characters. The one nice thing, I saw one place to refill your own water bottle near the Star Wars area. They should limit admission, even to the $25 parking lot, to those already with or able to purchase a limited number of tickets, otherwise turn additional guests away and save them the grief. Also, there's nothing worse than standing in a 2 hour Stamby line for an hour and having people "excuse me"ing to pass to "catch up to friends" they supposedly have. There is no enforcement of line cutting and that's not how Disney should be, Six Flags maybe, but not Disney. Money has ruined Hollywood Studios and I'd recommend saving your money and time and stay away from this park for a few years. Sad but true.

The Star Wars themed area is good (thats why I gave 2 *) but too busy to enjoy. Was only able to get 1 fast pass for late in the day. We queued over 2 hours for Slinky Dog and 1 hour for Millenium Falcon, didn't have time time to queue another 2 hours for rock n roll roller coaster.
My son wanted to purchase a Legacy light sabre (queue too long on our initial visit) so we payed car parking and went back specifically for this, queued 70 minuted to be told no 26 inch blades were available and no hilts either. Advised to return in a couple of days, which we did. Paid car parking again entered park at 08:02 (how was it not possible to book rise of the resistance at this time?) went straight to shop to be told none available, shop could not assist on shipping either.
Would not recommend this or any other Disney Park to people unless you are prepared to waste most of the day in queues, very limited fast passes were available with my ticket (I did not stay at Disney, maybe a clue as to the direction WDW is heading). Prices astronomical $29 for a bubble machine!!

We visited the park after the New Year. We purchased our tickets the day before while at Animal Kingdom, so we were not part of a vacation package or resort package. From what I’ve gathered after the fact, daily ticket buyers to the Disney parks get put at the back of the bus when it comes to anything park related...access to Fast Pass availability, signing up for the Rise of Resistance experience, etc. The folks who are actually part of the “Disney Experience” get early and guaranteed signups for Fast Pass, etc.

We really wanted to check out the new Star Wars area and rides, which is why we chose the park. We read that if you wanted to do Rise of the Resistance, you had to sign up for it over the My Disney Experience app and be assigned a boarding group and time. There was no first come first serve line or Fast Pass for this ride. It’s a virtual line! We were not able to sign up for the ride the day before our visit, and the app told us we had to wait until the morning and sign up when the park opened. We arrived at the park in the morning at 705 am and attempted to sign up. The app told us the ride was already booked out. We walked to the area where the ride info is displayed, and it also stated the ride was booked out. Five minutes at the park and the ride is unavailable for the entire day! There is just something very wrong with that scenario.

The park was super busy and I would argue that as a Southern California native who visited Disneyland frequently, I have never seen a park that was so over crowded. Over crowded parks equal long lines for everything and Fast Pass Access was basically non-existent both on the app and on the kiosks in the park. All the rides had a minimum wait of two hours up to four hours for the Millennium Falcon. We did find a hack for this ride by entering the line as single riders, and only had to wait about 20-30 minutes to get on the ride. If rides offered a single rider line, we would jump on it and would only wait a fraction of the time everyone else was waiting in their group.

We were only able to get one Fast Pass for the park for the Aerosmith coaster. Definitely the best ride we were able to get on. Tower or Terror broke down while we were in line. However, we made the best of what was available to us. Made conversation with a family who was only able to get on four rides the entire day in the park.

Overall, not a good experience due to the amount of people in the park, overly long lines, and the necessity for using the app to try and find Fast Pass availability. You have everyone walking and standing around checking out their phones, avoiding colliding with one another.

Do your homework well in advance if you plan on attending any of the Disney parks, otherwise you are going to have a frustrating time navigating the app and Fast Pass availability in order to enjoy your visit.

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge and Toy Story Land have really added more fun to this park. I have always loved this park because of my interest in theater but adding rides was awesome. I hope they add fast passes for Rise of the Resistance because unless you were there 2 hours prior to park opening, you probably were not going to be able to go on that ride. However, the Millennium Falcon Smuggler's Run ride was incredible. Exiting the ride is a bit confusing though. Slinky Dog Dash in Toy Story Land is amazing! What fun! Don't waste fast passes on Alien Saucers Spin though. We only rode those near the end of the night when the park emptied out because of rain. We loved the First Time in Forever Frozen Sing Along. The one major negative of this park is that there are no good table service restaurant options. We refuse to go to Mama Melrose's as they once charged my husband $10.00 for a plate of lettuce. The Hollywood Brown Derby is good but not worth a signature 2 dining credit. What was great since we had park hoppers, is we used the Skyliner and went to Epcot for more dining options.
Rock N' Rollercoaster and Tower of Terror are amazing as always. We did eat at PizzaRizzo for the first time for a quick serve and we enjoyed it. Good personal pizzas and salads. Muppet Vision 3D is always funny although the theater seats need more room. Looking forward to returning.

Worst of the Disney parks by miles. We had 1 day park hopper (thankfully) and left this place within an hour of opening (7am) after it being utter chaos. Everyone was moaning, no wonder, families travel all over the world to spend a full day waiting for a single attraction. You could literally feel the frustration in this place.

The only reason disney have a park per day pricing model is because they expect you to be in lines all day? Honestly the parks aren’t that big. Is this really the Disney experience?...Me and my wife do not have the patience or time in our flash visit so hopped around the parks instead.

Here is some advice if you want to do the rides at any of the parks:

Use fastpass as much as possible. Book 3 good ones for morning if you can, then spam the refresh on the app every second (it literally changes availability on every refresh?). We did this after every ride for about 15 minutes non-stop. We managed to get Everest, dinosaur and safari at AK, Space mountain, thunder mountain & dwarfs mine train at MK and waited all of about 5 minutes for each (the wait was 2-3 hours for each of these alone).
My second piece of advice is to go to Universal instead, and get the express passes. We had a brilliant time in our day there (harry potter section makes star wars at disney look seriously budget... and thats coming from a star wars fan).

David, thank you for your review of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Our newest, most daring attraction is certainly a sight to see, and it’s turned out to be very popular with our Guests. I apologize for the disappointment regarding the crowds caused by this new experience. I hope you were able to enjoy our other rides and shows at this Park, and I hope we get to welcome you back for a more enjoyable visit in the future. AJ Disney Social Reviews

If you want Rise of Resistance ride you need to be at the park an hour early to get through parking security and then into the park. At 8 AM you can reserve your spot on the ride but the passes will go within 1-2 minutes. We dropped two people in our party off at 7am to get the tickets, but didn’t realize we all needed to be scanned INTO the park in order to get on the ride queue. We were in the parking lot as 8am passed. This Made for very tough decision for the person to take the ride for just 2 and leave the others of us out of luck.
Thankfully Guest services was SO generous to allow the others of us on the same virtual pass. Had that not occurred it may have ruined the day. We are forever grateful!! We were #87 and got called for the ride around 6:30p. It took us an hour to get thru the Pre-ride and ride.
Only drawback is just the lines are so long. I have a hard time justifying 2 hour wait for 2-3 minute ride. On any rides that offer it, go in the singles line. We didn’t get fast passes for a number of reasons and so this was the only way we could ride without 2 hour waits. They were always shorter and we could still wait in line as a family.
Star Wars world is so well done. They’ve put such attention to detail and feels like you are in the movie. Star Wars fans could spend one whole day in this area taking it all in and riding the few rides.

The boarding group that Disney is trying with this ride is a nightmare and leaves many people that want to ride unable to do so. I can see many parents with small children, people with mobility issues, people with disabilities, and many others not able to ride it due to how early you would have to show up in order to get a boarding pass. My teen has sensory problems and even though now that he is older he's able to manage it a little better, the ordeal was still very hard on his body. We sacrificed and attempted the early morning fiasco. We got to the park before the 7am opening time and like everyone else waited for the official opening with our apps opened to join a boarding group. It was very crowded and loud. Right at 7am, the apps on both our phones crashed/got logged out "coincidentally", but we were able to open it again to get a 114 boarding group. This was already very frustrating. Thankfully I had already booked some fastpasses and were able to get a couple rides in, then left to another park and rode what we could. By noon, the early rise, the extreme crowds on every corner, and the waits had taken a toll on him (and me to be honest). We didn't have a hotel to go back to and nap because we had to check out so early. We waited until 3:30pm to finally get our boarding group called. This might not be too much for an average person, but for a person with sensory issues that has woken up so early and was anticipating a ride, it was a nightmare. By the time we rode, the excitement about the ride had faded, and after experiencing the ride, we felt like it was not worth the wait. Needless to mention we won't be attempting this again. I personally believe the ride does not live up to the hype.

We penned out two days to visit Hollywood Studios over the last 2 weeks and both times using lots of advice in how to get a boarding group for the ride, we tried to get our turn in the ride. Both times failed. If you travel over from the UK or from anywhere frankly and spend thousands of pounds on a dream vacation, you should have a fair shot at going on all the rides at least once. Boarding passes only seem to apply to RotR and the system is stupid. Now we have no more chances to try this ride before we go home and that's it! The same applies for the other popular rides that are not included with Fast Passes. We never got to try Avatar FoP. And even rides that you could get on FP but were impossible to get slots for but I would not expect 3 young children to wait over 2 hours to wait in a queue for for 45 seconds of thrills. Smugglers run we waited for an hour and a half and the simulator type ride was very underwhelming.

Hollywood Studios needs more rides. More things to do while you're bouncing around the site waiting for fast passes. More entertainers walking by the queues. Something!

Rock n roll rollercoaster was fantastic and we managed to do this ride 3 times over the 2 days.

Tower of Terror actually left me scared about safety. I'm quite a large person and didn't realise I needed to sit on an edge seat to get a bar. I held onto my children's hands in a middle seat and every drop, my belt seemed to extend longer and I seemed to come out of my seat further and further. I'm glad that was only short, because a couple more drops and I swear I would have clean come out of my seat! I didn't do that ride again even though I had the opportunity to. Are those belts really enough for that ride?

The Indiana Jones stunt show was good, shame about the rain as I think we might have seen more stunts. I think there could have been less talking and more stunts overall though.

Expensive overall and great to walk around, I get the feeling some parts of this park are very dated and need upgrading hugely.
