3 Strange Operations Changes Going Into Effect This Week at Disney's Hollywood Studios

There will be a holding area in Grand Avenue, but it might not be used

Earlier this year, some infrastructure work was performed in the Grand Avenue section of the park near MuppetVision 3D that widened the walkways so that a temporary queue and holding area for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge could be placed in this area should the need arise for an extended queue directly outside this land. We don't know if this area will actually be used for this purpose, but if lines for entry get too long, this will be where any temporary holding areas will be set up. 

FastPass+ tiers are changing for other attractions

Though Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run will not offer FastPass+ reservations during its opening weeks, in an effort to direct guests to basically anywhere else in the park, it looks like Disney is overhauling the FastPass+ tier system, and is making the following changes:

Beginning this week both the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster will be added to the Disney's Hollywood Studios Tier 1 FastPass+ selections. And while that might not initially sound all that noteworthy, these attractions are joining every single attraction in Toy Story Land, including Toy Story Mania, Slinky Dog Dash and (somewhat inexplicably) Alien Swirling Saucers in this category.

This leaves Star Tours as the only Tier 2 ride at this park, which means that getting a FastPass+ reservation for the only other Star Wars attraction at the park just got a whole lot more difficult, as guests will likely be looking to make FastPass+ reservations for rides while they are visiting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
