We visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios on a hot and crowded day where it appears that guest attendance is returning to pre-pandemic levels.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror started at a 20 minute wait when we arrived, but it soon jumped up to 45 minutes with a line stretching down Sunset Blvd.

It appears that with higher crowds and increased wait times, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is returning to normal.

The leaves on these trees have begun to change from green to orange, a sign that fall is upon us.

Park Pals

We were lucky to find two Br’er Rabbit Park Pals at Mickey’s of Hollywood. Splash Mountain merchandise is becoming harder to find outside of Magic Kingdom as the attraction’s Princess and the Frog themed overhaul approaches.

It’s definitely a sign things are getting better, but they need to implement longer park hours or bring back fast passes with these increased crowds.

I’m sad to see crowds increasing at this time. We’ll be in Orlando soon and were considering a visit as an opportunity for getting photos without people in the background. We felt like it would be pretty safe with the mask requirement and fewer people. But with normal crowds, it will be harder to maintain distance and risky with people coming from all over the country. Too risky for us oldsters for awhile, but we’ll make up for it someday.

We were there too. We had to use our residence tickets before 9/31. People were wearing masks, washing hands and following space. requirements. We were disappointed that there is such a slim chance to get in the virtual queue for Rise of Resistence. We tried again Tues. Smaller crowds on Tues.
