    Does Hollywood and Studios have a separate line for those needing to get in for ADRs? We have an 8:05 reservation for Hollywood and Vine on a day HS opens at 8:00. What should our strategy be for making our reservation?

    Hi Andrea!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The short answer is yes!!  For any Guests with a dining reservation at a restaurant inside a Walt Disney World Resort theme park, you will be admitted with enough time to make your way to your restaurant.  For your 8.05am reservation, I would suggest arriving at Disney's Hollywood Studios around 30-40 minutes earlier than that, to give you enough time to clear the security bag check, and walk to Hollywood & Vine.  Head to the touchpoint entrance with a sign for 'Guests with early dining reservations' where you will scan your MagicBand or park ticket.  

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, complimentary Resort transport will take you to the theme parks and will start running around 45 minutes before park opening times.  If Disney's Hollywood Studios opens at 8.00am on the day of your visit, this means your transport will be operating from around 7.15am.  If you were able to board the first bus, it is possible this would give you enough time, but it might be tight.  So, I would highly recommend using the Disney Minnie Van Service for an efficient and magical start to your day!  Driven by knowledgeable and friendly Disney Cast Members, these vans can be ordered by using the Lyft app on your smartphone, where you can also see the cost of using this service, and make your payment.  These vans can accommodate up to 6 Guests (including 2 child seats if required).  You can also order regular Lyft vehicles by using the same app.  If you are driving your own car, the parking lots at the theme parks typically open around an hour before the park opens.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and updates on any events that may be happening during your stay.
