Just a week ago, Toy Story Land opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios to great fanfare and massive wait times. Slinky Dog Dash in particular was quite the popular attraction on opening day, almost immediately posting a 300-minute wait when the park opened with a line that stretched all the way from the attraction to the Center Stage area of the park.

However, even though this land had a dramatic first day, in the week since its opening, wait times have diminished over the past week, and general crowds have lessened somewhat, which is good news for those trying to experience this new land during the summer. However, if you are really trying to minimize the time you spend in line here this summer, here are some tips and tricks you can use to reduce your wait time for new attractions like Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers at Toy Story Land.  

1. Take advantage of the daily extra Extra Magic Hours at this park during the summer

In an effort to get as many guests into this new land as possible during the summer Disney is offering daily morning Extra Magic Hours from 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM in addition to the regularly scheduled evening Extra Magic Hours that are offered from 10:00 PM to 12:00 AM on Fridays only. During these special Extra Magic Hours, Toy Story Land attraction wait times are typically a half hour or less, and resort guests have regularly been able to experience both of the new attractions inside Toy Story Land before the park officially opens, which is not only good from a time management perspective, but also because the sun is a bit of a problem in this new land, which isn't great for summer visitors. 

2. Go around lunchtime or late in the evening if you aren't a resort guest

Though visiting this land during Extra Magic Hours is the best way to reduce your wait time at Toy Story Land, if you aren't able to take advantage of this time, it looks like the best times to visit this new land are around lunchtime or in the evening. Though there is a bit of a rush to this new land when the park opens, there seems to be a bit of a lull between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM, before things pick up in the afternoon. 

And if you can't make it at mid-day, visiting this part of the park after 7:00 PM, also seems to be a good option for those who don't want to wait more than an hour for either of the new attractions inside this new land.
