BREAKING: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run to Offer FastPass+ Starting February 19; FastPass+ Possibly Coming to Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

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

Attention Star Wars fans! Guests can now reserve access to fly the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy” at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

FastPass+ reservations for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run are available in the My Disney Experience app for those planning visits on or after Feb. 19.

Similar to other theme park offerings, when making FastPass+ plans for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests can select between either Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run or Slinky Dog Dash (pending availability). Then, they can add additional experiences to plans, including Toy Story Mania, Alien Swirling Saucers, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Fantasmic! and more.

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run combines immersive storytelling with interactive gameplay and makes guests the protagonist of their own Star Wars adventure! When it’s time for the mission to begin, guests will be assigned one of three critical roles: Pilots, Gunners and Flight Engineers. The goal is to smuggle goods while avoiding any unnecessary entanglements.

During this time, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will continue to operate a virtual queue, with the possibility of transitioning to FastPass+ in the future.

I think this is a bad decision. I think the line is shorter without FastPass+. While I like FastPass+, I do believe it makes the standby lines MUCH longer than they would be without.

I was kind of hoping they would go with virtual queues for other big attractions at the parks like they have for ROTR.

Respectfully disagree. I don’t want to have to be waiting outside the park an hour before opening just to be inside the park to get a shot at a boarding pass for rides (as it is with ROTR). I like booking FastPasses in advance so at least I know before the day begins I’m going to get on my favorite ride.

So all the former tier 1 (Except SDD) are now tier 2 attractions!?!?

So disappointed with the tier system. I’m keeping my evening fast pass for Slinky Dog Dash (Which felt impossible to grab) over a fastpass for Smugglers Run. I hope I made the right choice.

In monitoring the wait queues recently I think that’s a good decision!

I’m so happy that Disney learned from their tier 1 mishap and shuffled things around. I don’t need to waste my selections now just so I can have 3!

THANK YOU!!! We are traveling all the way from Kansas for my leap day baby to celebrate his 3rd ACTUAL birthday in Star Wars Land so I have been watching closely to see if this would happen and thankfully I got fast passes for us for SR on his REAL birthday. SO excited and appreciative of these notifications!

Say goodbye to reasonable wait times on another attraction.

Can we ditch FP+ already? The 30 minute waits for Smugglers run have been amazing. Not looking forward to another Fastpass or bust attraction.

Question- we have 10 in our group coming but not all of us want to use our fast passes for the same rides (especially tier 1). When one in our group selects the Fast Pass, can they select which in the group to include?

Yes, they absolutely can!

Yes. Link your party members on the Disney app, or Disney website. Then when attempting to make fast pass selection, you first select which party members you are attempting to make a selection for. I always wake up early on the earliest day I am eligible to make fast pass selections.

Thank you! After seeing this article I immediately added this to my FastPass selections!

Another ride, like Soarin (epcot), where in if you dont get the B-1 seat or in this case the pilot, the experience is bad. And in Soarin atleast if you request the cast members for B-1 seating they let you do that. Here if you request to be a pilot, they are denying it. Ive been personally told that ill have to join the queue again.

All depends on the CM. I’ve seen requests granted without issue.

WDWNT rocks! This post beat other bloggers I subscribe to by at least 2 hours. I was able to immediately swizzle the HS FastPass+ reservations for my early March trip to exploit this. Thanks for your informative and timely reporting!

Thanks WDWNT app! I got the push notification of this change and was able to get Slinky Dog Dash for my trip in March.

No doubt the new Mickey and Minnie Runaway attraction will be put into this top tier as well when it opens making three premium rides. Welcome to the mid-tier Aerosmith and Tower!
