Advance ride reservations will be available for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Disney’s Hollywood Studios starting Feb. 19, Disney announced Thursday.
The ride has not been included in Disney’s FastPass+ service since it opened with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on August 29, leaving the standby queue as the only option for guests.
The change will also shift the FastPass+ tiers for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. When reserving ride times on or after Feb. 19, guests will only be able to select either Smugglers Run or Slinky Dog Dash in Toy Story Land. All the park’s other rides and experiences — including Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or Toy Story Mania — will be in a separate tier.
Previously, Disney put all of the park’s rides, with the exception of Star Tours, in Tier 1, meaning guests could only reserve a time for one of them in advance. Tier 2 included Star Tours and all of the park’s stage shows.
The marquee attraction of Galaxy’s Edge, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, won’t be coming to FastPass+ for now. The only option for experiencing that ride will continue to be the virtual boarding system used since the attraction opened on Dec. 5.
“We may include this attraction in the FastPass+ service sometime in the future and will share more information at that time,” wrote Disney Parks editorial content director Thomas Smith on the Disney Parks Blog.
