The Walt Disney World Resort will extend the hours of operation for its Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park this summer to accommodate expected crowds for its new Toy Story Land.
Disney's Hollywood Studios will be open from 8am through 10:30 pm, starting July 1, the resort announced today. Toy Story Land opens officially June 30.
Featuring the Slinky Dog Dash family coaster from Mack Rides, the Alien Swirling Saucers spinner ride, the new entrance to the officially renamed Toy Story Mania!, and the Woody's Lunch Box counter-service eatery (check out the menu!), Toy Story Land also will be filled with Instagram-worthy photo ops for fans of the original Pixar animated franchise.
Let's walk through the land, via the most amazing room at Walt Disney Imagineering.
Disney today also publicly confirmed what we told you early this month, that the three Toy Story Land attractions would be the new Tier 1 for Fastpass+ reservations at Disney's Hollywood Studios. You may choose one of those three rides for a Fastpass+ reservation, with your other two advance selections coming from rides elsewhere in the park. See our 2018 guide to making Fastpass+ reservations at Walt Disney World for more information.Tweet
I'm predicting a 2 day wait time for Slinky Dog. Yes, bring your camping gear and be prepared to camp it out for 2 minutes of a cheap coaster.
How will new low-capacity rides at DHS affect lines for FOP at DAK? If anything, this may shorten some lines at ToT, RnR, TSM, and Star Tours, but I doubt guests will see much of an impact over the busy summer months. I doubt this is going to dramatically affect the number of guests visiting DHS over DAK.
However, once Galaxy's Edge opens, you may see some significant shortening of FOP lines, because it will change the balance between the importance of each WDW park to the average guest.
I believe the comment by Anton was intended to be satirical and or sarcastic.

Slinky Dog Dash should have 120 minutes wait and Alien saucers should have 90 minutes wait. This will lighten the load for Flights of Passage.
