Hollywood Studios Park Hours Extended for March 2020

Park hours for Hollywood Studios have been extended for certain days in March! But, what does this mean for you?

With Spring Break and the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway on March 4, guests will be drawn into Disney’s Hollywood Studios during the month of March! The boarding group situation for Rise of the Resistance mixed with spring break crowds and people wanting to ride a new attraction means you will need an excellent touring plan. Character Locator has you covered!

Rise of the Resistance Star Was Galaxy's Edge

Along with a great touring plan, extra hours to be in the park also helps immensely. Disney accommodates that need by increasing operating hours. They have been doing this for a couple of months now since the opening of Rise of the Resistance.

Operating Hours for March

Earlier this month, we reported that March 1-14 hours were changed. In that post, we also detailed April hours had changed as well.

Well, the second half of March sees a change in hours as well. From March 15 to 28, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will open one hour earlier. You can check Kenny’s free crowd calendars to see current park hours for all Disney theme parks and water parks.

So far there are no new changes for the park in April.

What do earlier posted hours mean for you?

If your dates have been affected by these extensions, this is a great time to check for newly added FastPasses for your favorite experience.

Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will Offer Re-entry Restroom Passes

Additional hours means additional FastPass+ could fall within those hours. Grab those Slinky Dog Dash, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, or Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run Fastpasses!

Yep, you read that right! Both Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run recently became FastPass options! These two plus Slinky Dog Dash are all Tier One attractions.

Disney World Announces New Ticket: Water Park and Sports Option

With March and April being busy months because of spring break and Easter, it is very likely we see park hours continue to be updated across all 4 parks. As always, we will keep you updated with the latest in park hours and Disney news.

  1. Thanks for the heads up! Just grabbed a 8:45 slinky and was able to adjust the rest of my fast passes to earlier times perfectly one after another!! So excited to see how many fast passes I can utilize in one day at DHS

  2. Just grabbed a couple early morning FP’s. One smugglers run for 9:35-10:35am…must have opened up when someone changed to an earlier time between 8-9am I guess..
    FYI – also noticed that there are a few times for Slinky still available on Friday March 20th now.
    Thanks again Kenny!

  3. Wondering if anyone was able to get to get an earlier Fastpass yet? Hours are still showing 9am for the March 15th week I n the my Disney experience..
