    Do you NEED a FastPass for Fantasmic!, or can you get into the amphitheater without one? Which ride generally has longer wait times, Tower of Terror or Slinky Dog Dash? What's the fastest way to get to HS-area resorts, walk, boat or skyliner? Thanks!!!

    Hi Lauren!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel so that we can help you plan your trip! It sounds like you are considering some fun experiences for your day at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Fantasmic! is a wonderful way to way to cap off your day at the park. Sorcerer Mickey will conjure up water, lights, fireworks and music to mesmerize you and your family. He'll even bring along some of his best friends to keep you entertained! FastPass+ is not required to attend the show. For the best seats, I recommend joining the theater queue about 45 minutes before the show - perhaps a little earlier if you are attending during a peak holiday season.

    As for planning your FastPass+ for rides, I would recommend choosing Slinky Dog Dash over the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Generally, this attraction will have a bit longer of a wait time than the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Of course, you should always take a look at the wait times in the My Disney Experience app once you arrive at the parks. If anything changes, you can adjust your touring plans right from your phone.

    Travel to the resorts around Disney's Hollywood Studios varies. If you're heading over to Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney's Beach Club Resort or Disney's Boardwalk Resort, I generally recommend using water transportation. You can also walk or take the Disney Skyliner, but the boat ride is quick and easy. For other resorts, such as Disney's Riviera Resort, Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort or Disney's Art of Animation Resort, I recommend the Disney Skyliner. Not only are the gondolas super quick and easy, but you get a birds eye view of the parks and resorts at the same time!

    Have a great trip and be sure to let the Disney Parks Moms Panel know if we can help with additional planning details!
