Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort is becoming a very popular park lately. With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge planted inside the park, many Star Wars fans have been booking their Park Pass reservations well in advance to secure a spot.

If you’re planning to visit Hollywood Studios in the next couple of months, then you need to act fast!

After reviewing the Park Pass reservation calendar for the month of May, it looks like the entire month is currently booked for Hollywood Studios for both theme park ticket holders and select Resort hotel Guests, as seen in the images below.

All of the days are highlighted yellow because Disney’s Hollywood Studios is not available, meaning only some parks are available for those days.

There is some good news for Annual Passholders as there are still several days available to visit Hollywood Studios. The only dates currently booked for Disney’s Hollywood Studios are:

  • May 2
  • May 4
  • May 8
  • May 9
  • May 15

Furthermore, Disney’s Hollywood Studio fans are looking forward to visiting further into June as many of the dates have been booked here as well. After reviewing the June calendar, there are only FOUR days remaining. If you’re a theme park ticket holder or a select Resort hotel Guest and are planning to visit this park, you still have the following dates to choose from:

  • June 27
  • June 28
  • June 29
  • June 30

Annual Passholders will feel a sigh of relief here as well because the entire month of June is still available for Hollywood Studios. Additionally, Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and EPCOT are up for grabs for the entire month of June as well, which you can see reflected in the screenshot below.

Park Passes and Rise of the Resistance

With Park Hopping returning earlier this year, many Guests were wondering if this would affect how to grab a Rise of the Resistance boarding group.

In case you missed it, Disney recently changed the way Rise of the Resistance handed out boarding groups. Instead of one distribution time in the morning, there are now two different times — one at 7 a.m., which can be done from outside of the theme park, so long as you have a Park Pass for Hollywood Studios, and one at 1 p.m.

Well, it is important to note that if Hollywood Studios is not the first park you’re visiting while Park Hopping, then you may not be able to join the virtual line for the popular attraction. This makes sense since, in order to join the boarding group queue, one must have a valid Disney Park Pass park reservation. And since Disney already stated that Guests only need a park reservation for their first theme park (subject to change), it makes sense Guests will only be able to join the boarding group queue if they are visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios first.

Additionally, the second boarding group time is set for 1 p.m. every day and Guests cannot Park Hop until 2 p.m., meaning Guests cannot be in Hollywood Studios for the second boarding group time unless Hollywood Studios was their first park of the day (and was their Park Pass).
