Until Star Wars arrived, Hollywood Studios was considered a half-day park.  Meaning you didn’t really need too much time there because there really wasn’t anything that great. Times have changed. Hollywood Studios is upping the ante with just about everything. The introduction of Toy Story Land  and Galaxy’s Edge now means you need to maximize your time. 

What is the Best Day to Visit Hollywood Studios?

Wednesdays and Fridays are typically the best days to visit Hollywood Studios. Mainly because Epcot tends to be the Friday night hot spot. But since it is within walking distance to Hollywood Studios we do expect that Fridays here will become busier. As with all the parks visiting during the daytime on weekdays is best. And avoid weekends.

And with so many things to try you’re sure to find a new favorite place to eat! And if you’re up for even more treats, check out the Best Hollywood Studios Snacks.
