Check out our best fast passes for Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World.

There are no real bad rides to go on honestly but if you have limited time and you want to do the best of the best we have you covered.

Many of these will depend on personal preference, family ages, and heights along with health issues. We made the list so you can pick and choose which you would love to do and those you want to miss.

How To Use The Fast Pass System

Each person gets three rides they can fast pass per day. In this case, I’ve selected the top most popular rides that you’re going to want to fast pass where possible. These rides typically have a wait time of more than 60 minutes so having a fast pass for these rides is expected to save you three hours.

Once you’ve completed the fast passes for Hollywood Studios for the day you can get one additional fast pass until either the park closes or no additional fast passes are available.

Hollywood Studio rides runs on a tier system, the tier system breaks down the rides which can be booked together. For example, in tier 1 is Soarin’ and Frozen Ever After, you can’t book both of these rides. You can book 1 ride from the tier 1 and 2 rides in the tier 2 category.

Here is a simple break down :

One X tier 1 Ride + two X tier 2 Rides = 3 Fast Passes for Hollywood Studios

Three X tier 2 rides = 3 Fast Passes For Hollywood Studios

Though it may seem a little confusing at first it is simple to understand. Due to the number of people constantly wanting to get onto Soarin’ ride or some of the more popular they have made them tier 1.

This is to make sure other guests can get onto at least 1 of the rides. This is to stop guests booking fast passes for the popular rides taking up fast passes which could go to other guests. This is the same system for both Animal Kingdom and Epcot.

Breakdown Of The Best Fast Passes For Hollywood Studios

This is a breakdown of the best fast passes for Hollywood Studios. I decided to add these as a separate section as you can see what we personally think are the best ones. These are generally the most popular with many guests and can run out of fast passes quickly.

Tower Of Terror

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is Cora’s personal favourite and will go on this over and over again if she can. This ride is such a great ride as it has a little bit of spooky along with an awesome ride.

The ride is amazing from the moment you enter the lines to the moment you leave. The animation, decoration and the whole theme of the ride is well worth witnessing even if you don’t plan to ride it.

This is a ride for the older kids and adults though Frankie got to go on it at 7 years old. It is a great ride and it can offer up fantastic views over the park which are well worth checking out.

Slinky Dog Dash

This is a great ride to go on for the family, no little children though as there is a height restriction. It is super fun, animated and really brings the Toy Story theme to life. The ride is extremely popular still as it is still fairly new to the park.

This has to be one of my best fast passes for Hollywood Studios as it is fast, fun and has a different spin on the regular rollercoaster. The ride is great as after a route of regular speed roller coaster, it pulls back and goes even faster. The atmosphere and sheer excitement on Slinky Dog Dash is super fun.

Also, don’t forget to check out the little details in the scenery and waiting area of the ride. The small details in the queue line is super fun and interesting. It is enough to keep you occupied while waiting thats for sure!

Rock N Roller Coaster

If you like to go fast and love rock music this is for you! Height restrictions apply again but this ride always has a long wait so if you think you might like it, get in fast with a fast pass.

This ride is such a good thrill seeking ride for music lovers to enjoy. It can often get quite full and busy due to many guests wanting to ride it.

That is everything you need to know about the best Fast Passes for Hollywood Studios. If you have a favourite and want to tell us why you love it leave us a comment below. Alternatively, if you are looking at booking your fast passes and still not sure, feel free to get in touch for more help.

Millennium Falcon – Smugglers Run

This is a brand new ride open for Galaxy’s edge. If you are a star wars fan at all I would look into getting at least one of the star wars rides booked for your trip. Due to the tier system as it is you can only book one of the star wars rides.

Look into each one and work out which is best for your party and which you think you will enjoy the most and then get a fast pass for it.

I personally, haven’t been on any of the new Galaxy’s edge rides yet but hoping I will with our upcoming trip. I just know that these rides are very popular and have a huge fan following eager to test out the rides and experience.

Toy Story Mania

This is a ride that is always packed and fast passes go early. This is a great ride for all the family to enjoy.

This is a popular ride within many of the Disney Parks.
