Today you begin early at the Studios, have the afternoon off, and return to the park by 5pm.

You need to be at your hotel bus stop by 7:20a.

In the morning, you will first see Toy Story Mania, and then see the shows you missed on Sunday, fitting in rides in between. In the evening, the spectacular fireworks show Fantasmic is the main event, but you will also finish seeing the rides and get to re-ride your favorites. The park will be open tonight as late as 1am for you as a Disney Resort guest


Get up early and have breakfast in your room
Be at your hotel bus stop by 7:20 am, and catch the bus to Disney’s Hollywood Studios


  • Arrive at the park by 8am
  • Get in line and await the opening
  • At opening, pick up a guide map and “Times Guide” (a show schedule), and head for Toy Story Mania and ride
  • Check the times guide for the times this morning of any shows you missed on Sunday, and make your plans to see them
  • Working around these plans, continue to see the rides you missed on Sunday, starting around Toy Story Mania and working your way towards the Muppet area
  • Have lunch at Toy Story Pizza Planet either before 11 or after 1.
  • Head back to your hotel when you are ready, for a nap and a swim. As you leave, if you wish to do a ride again that has fastpasses, check the fastpass return times, as they are likely to be in the evening, and you can grab a fastpass to use tonight


  • Be at your bus stop no later than 4:40
  • Based on your energy level, decide whether to see the earlier or later Fantasmic. If you can wait until the later one, then you can go on rides while 10,000 park visitors are in line for and watching the earlier Fantasmic, which will reduce the lines at the rides between an hour before it begins, and 30-45 minutes after it begins
  • Continue with any rides you have not seen yet, and dine at 6:15p at the 50’s Prime Time Café (table credit)
  • Be in line for your Fantasmic an hour before the earlier show, or 30 minutes before the later one
  • At the appropriate point, get the armband that permits you to stay late; at some point, duck in to the Sci-Fi Diner for a snack (cash)
  • When you have had enough, go home!

Note: Bring The Comprehensive Guide to Rides and Rides that Might be Skipped in case your day gets to be too intense!
