    Hello disney moms! Trying to decide on fastpasses for Hollywood Studios...I have selected a fastpass for toy story mania, but am debating on switching it to fantasmic..there will be two shows while we're hard is it snag a seat without a pass?

    Hi Savannah!

         Yes, currently Hollywood Studios has a tiered FastPass+ system and Guests are allowed to select one FastPass + from the top tier (Toy Story Midway Mania and Fantasmic are in this tier).  My first choice would be to use your FastPass+ selection for Toy Story Midway Mania because the standby line wait times can be quite long for this attraction (sometimes 90 to 120 minutes or longer). You could wait in the standby line for Fantasmic (typically if you get in line 30 to 45 minutes before Fantasmic is scheduled to begin, then you should be able to get a good seat for Fantasmic). Also if there are two Fantasmic shows on that particular evening, the second show will be less crowded. If you decide to use your FastPass+ selection for Fantasmic, then you could get to Hollywood Studios 30 minutes before park opening on that day and ride Toy Story Midway Mania right at park opening to minimize your standby line wait time.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
