PHOTOS, VIDEO: Queue Construction, Waiting 30 Minutes in FastPass Line at Toy Story Mania Ahead of Toy Story Land

As we reported a few weeks back, Toy Story Mania at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been operating at a reduced capacity in order to prepare the queue and move the entrance to Toy Story Land this Summer. Since then, we have seen quite the exterior queue for the ride and much longer than usual wait times posted. Well, we decided to grab a FastPass and see just how bad the mess was just for ourselves. Here’s what happened:

So yes, we waited over 30 minutes in the FastPass queue, mostly outdoors. They also don’t even scan your MagicBand or card until after you’ve waited around half of that, so if it doesn’t work for some reason (or you’re a confused tourist), you just waited 15 minutes for nothing. Besides that, temperatures are rising into the 90’s now here in Orlando, so an outdoor queue like this won’t be good for many guests, especially those in the standby.

As you saw in the video, the queue is a pretty big mess currently.

Hopefully this will all be done sooner rather than later, but the worst is still to come. It is expected that the ride will drop down to just one operating track soon, as well, there will be no FastPass reservations at the attraction for a period of time starting in April.

I was at Studios yesterday and the whole park was a human zoo. I can no longer defend ABC commissary, that place was trash and the food was complete garbage. How will they handle the Star Wars land crowds if they can’t handle a random Tuesday?

To be fair, It’s bad because the capacity is so limited, especially now with GMR closed. But I imagine it will get better when the new lands open

Agreed!! I hate to say it but this is the new “normal.” I will still go, still enjoy and take it for what it is.

ABC commissary is tough in many ways but try to do a walk up or reservation for Sci-fi Diner next door…when the price is all said and done, its only a few bucks more for a better food product, its themed, not as crowded, no table search rodeo, vultures don’t stand over you waiting for your table, etc….just a thought if its an option.

You would think they would be able to copy us better. They cannot even afford to build a giftshop for Toy Story. We built a giftshop for freaking Fast and Furious that is open now before the ride even opened. If they were smart they would open the giftshop for Mickeys runaway rail early and just rake in the cash as people would go because there is nothing else open with AC

hmm. We are one of those people who will be going in April. What is left to see?? We love Toy Story Mania. Think it will feel incomplete not visiting this park though-and could not wait until Star Warsland opens (and can just imagine the queues).

You should skip Studios, but if you go, you should do the Star Wars Desert Party. It’s around 80$ a head which is crazy but worth it. You will get wasted and have a great view of the show. Eat before you go because those galactic punches sneak up on you

The “oy” on the blocks kind of said it all.
