By Dave Shute

(Note: this is from the Disney World Higher Crowd Itinerary.)


Note: For visits when your Studios days are between June 30 and and August 25, use the updated FastPass+ instructions and touring plans for the two Studios days you will find on this page. I’ll have revised material for visits after 8/25 out shortly.

You begin and end today at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, with an afternoon break between. You should have FastPass+ for Tower of Terror, Indiana Jones, and Fantasmic.
