Don’t expect to ride Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney’s Hollywood Studios over the next few days unless you can secure a FastPass+. Disney is running a test through Thursday that removes the standby line.
During this test, more FastPass+ reservations will be available for the ride than usual. If you’ve already checked for FastPass+ reservations for the ride during the test and there weren’t any available, keep checking as more may have been added.
Disney has stated this is being done because, “We are testing a new process to enhance the guest experience by expanding the availability of FastPass+ so guests can enjoy more time exploring other offerings in the park and return at a designated time.”
The test is running Oct. 6 to 9, 2014, but this isn’t the first time a test like this has been done. Disney previously ran a limited time FastPass+ only test for meeting some characters.
Rumors have been circulating that the soundstage next to Toy Story Midway Mania, where Wandering Oaken’s and Darth’s Mall were housed, will become an extra track for the Toy Story ride, in order to shorten the long waits. But that’s only speculation at this point.
