    Visited WDW this July. Didn't manage to ride Toy Story Mania as 2 hr waits. Returning next June/July. Any hints or tips so kids won't be disappointed? Many thanks. Love the panel- read it daily.

    Hi Moira,

    Toy Story Mania is a really fantastic ride, so much fun, I'm sorry that you were unable to ride it on your last holiday.

    As you say the queues for TSM get huge so the best way to ride with a shorter wait is to arrive at the park at least 20 minutes before it opens. Once through the turnstiles head down Hollywood Boulevard and try to get as close to the rope as possible. Then if able select one of your party as the fast pass runner (well fast walker as you're not allowed to run!) and get them to go straight to TSM as soon as the rope drops to get fast passes for the whole family. The rest of the family follow and all meet in the regular stand by line, this way you'll be able to ride twice with a short wait. I know that all sounds a bit commando but it is worth it  :-)

    Hopefully by the time you return to Hollywood Studios next year the TSM craze will have quietened down a little and the queues won't be so long!

    Hope that helps and thanks for reading,
