FastPass+ Tiers Changing with Addition of Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

UPDATE: With the addition of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway to FastPass+, the upcoming attraction has also been added to Tier 1. For more details on FastPass+ for Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, click here.


With the addition of Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run to the FastPass+ lineup at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Tier-based system has shuffled around its other FastPass+ accessible attractions.

Starting February 19, here is how the new tiered system for FastPass+ will work at Disney’s Hollywood Studios:

Tier 1 will include: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Slinky Dog Dash. Guests will be able to pre-select one of these attractions as a FastPass+ reservation in advance of their visit to the park.

Tier 2 will include: Toy Story Mania!, Alien Swirling Saucers, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Disney Junior Dance Party!, For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, Muppet*Vision 3D, Fantasmic!, Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage. Guests will be able to pre-select two of these attractions as a FastPass+ reservation in advance of their visit to the park.

FastPass+ tiers at the park were last changed with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. As always, Boarding Groups for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance work independently from the FastPass+ system, and having a group secured will not interfere with your FastPass+ selections. FastPass+ selections made prior to this changes will not be affected, and tiers will remain as they are currently through February 18. Starting February 19, if neither of the Tier 1 are available, guests may choose from any three options in Tier 2.

Great News! Finally we can get 3 useful fast passes instead of 1 useful fast pass and 2 worthless ones.

DOES THIS MEAN IF TIER 1 IS NOT AVAILABLE YOU CAN ONLY GET 2 FAST PASSES? WHAT ABOUT THE ONES WE HAVE ALREADY BOOKED?

You get three fast pass reservations and they can all be tier two if you like. What you can’t do is make two or three of those advance fast passes for tier one attractions. Hope that helps.

Don’t worry, your fast passes will NOT go away. You can update or change them now if you would like.

Existing FPs will remain as you selected, but you can go in and change them. I did this morning. Got a SDD / TSM / RNR for one day and RNR / TOT / Smugglers the other.

Tracy – take a screenshot showing what your March fastpasses are. Then if they “go away” you can tell guest services to see if they can help you get them back.

You’d think Disney would send an email on this for people booked for March, but no. Happened to log in and luckily got a smugglers run. Nice job Disney.

Im assuming this means that when mickey and Minnie’s runaway railway opens it will be tier 1 and then whenever rise of the resistance gets on the fastpass system it will be tier 1 as well. So we will have to choose between those 4 as a tier 1. Still WAY better

I am confused about the Boarding Groups for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. How does that work? How do you join this group?
