    Has anyone had success in getting toy story mania as a 4th fast pass at Hollywood?

    Dear Claudia,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great planning question for Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    Toy Story Mania! is indeed a "must do" attraction for most families when visiting Walt Disney World Resort. My family can't wait to compete against each other and score points to win! It can be very challenging to find a FastPass+ selection for this attraction on the day of. However, it can absolutely be available, depending on a number of factors. First, how many people do you have in your party? You're much more likely to find an open FastPass+ later in the day for a party of one or two, than it might be for a party of ten or twelve. Second, it depends on how high traffic of a day it is at Disney's Hollywood Studios, with some days being much busier than others. Weather and many other factors can impact how challenging it might be to find those FastPass+ selections. 

    My best advice is to arrive early at Disney's Hollywood Studios, up to an hour before park opening, and then you will be positioned to walk directly to Toy Story Mania! when the park opens. At that time, you will be able to ride at least once with a minimal wait, and sometimes can ride two or three times before the crowds start to increase. Then, you have your FastPass+ selections to fall back on later to ride the other big attractions at the park. 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
