After yesterday’s news that Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run would add FastPass+ beginning February 19th, Disney extended the Studios’ operating hours in February once again.
Here’s the most recent update:
Previously, Disney moved the Studios’ opening to 7am through February 2nd. Today, they extended the opening on February 3rd to 7am, but only moved the opening to 8am for February 4th through the 29th.
Our attention turns to Epcot, where a great number of construction projects, refurbishments, and wall rearrangements continue. Fortunately, outside of the Park, conditions have improved with the completion of the new tram loop. Previously, walls would have caused us to have to circle around to the far left side to go through bag check over there, which would take another three or four minutes of walking.
Some amount of work continues with the planters on the tram loop pickup side opposite of where we’re standing.
The FastPass+ Tiers at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will change again on Wednesday, February 19th, 2020.
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will begin offering FastPass+ on February 19th.
The addition of FastPass+ comes a little less than six months after the attraction opened with the initial phase of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge back on August 29th, 2019.
We continue from El Artista Hambriento in Mexico.
Pop Eats is the last Food Studio that you’ll run into if you start with the Canada side of World Showcase. It’s also the first Food Studio that you’ll happen upon if you start on the Mexico side.
The only all-new item is the Tomato Soup Can Bloody Mary. The Sous Vide Chicken Roulade arrives with the same name, but we’ll see a different presentation this year.
We continue from The Painted Panda in China.
Mexico’s Festival booth, El Artista Hambriento, returns to its usual spot on the water just to the right of La Cantina de San Angel, the Pavilion’s quick service.
As is tradition, Mexico returns none of its food items from the year prior. Surprisingly, there isn’t a dessert offered for this Festival. Last year, “Chocoflan” was on the menu. The Margaritas feature similar names, but will end up being different drinks. That means this review is a $53 investment.
