Jimmy Mac of your weekly ForceCast passed along a link to a week-old article at WDWEasy.com which breaks down Disney Hollywood Studios wait times between Star Tours: The Adventures Continue and the ever-popular Toy Story Mania. While Star Tours has had an impressive release with the aid of Star Wars Weekends, Toy Story Mania still remains the top dog when it comes to waiting in the sun for some entertainment.
"Though its official opening was just this past Friday, Star Tours has been open for a little over a week now in one form or another. There were hopes amongst many that Star Tours would take some of the pressure off Toy Story Mania, particularly at Park opening. As you may be aware, the “Toy Story Midway Mania Dash” at rope drop can be an uncomfortable experience, as thousands of people vie for the first FASTPASSes and rides of the day. It’s not uncommon for Toy Story Mania to run out of FASTPASSes before 11am and afternoon waits are almost always north of 60 minutes, even when crowds are low. From what we’ve seen thus far, the reopening of Star Tours has not had much of an effect on Toy Story Mania’s wait times or FASTPASS distribution."
