    Sabrina from AR Asked

    I have already booked dining reservations and fast passes for Hollywood Studios for May 30, 2014. I didn't realize that this was Star Wars Weekend. Will it be overly crowded? Should I try and switch my days around?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Sabrina ~

    I am a huge Stars Wars Weekends (SWW) fan and cannot wait for this year!  In my past experiences during SWW, Disney's Hollywood Studios is really crowded. The further along in the day, the more crowded the park becomes as Guests arrive. Some of these Guests will focus on the special Star Wars activities and character interactions that only take place during SWW. However, the most popular attractions like Toy Story Midway Mania!, Star Tours, Tower of Terror, and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster will have really long lines as always. 

    It can also be hard to navigate the park because of the crowds and special events. For example, people start lining up along Hollywood Blvd. over an hour before the Celebrity Motorcade begins to get a good spot. It is always congested near Star Tours and Jedi Training Academy so avoid those areas when possible.

    If you can try and switch your days around, I would do it and avoid Hollywood Studios on a SWW event day. If you can't, I would at least try to get my FastPass+ options for the morning before the park gets overly crowded. Just go with the mindset that it is going to be crowded, take a deep breath, and roll with the flow. I'd recommend that you check out some of the SWW things going on - it really is an out of this galaxy event and you may really enjoy it.
