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 in walking distance to Hollywood Studios we do expect that Fridays here will become busier. As with all the parks visiting during the day time on week days is best. And avoid weekends.
