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.
The Painted Panda is located in the usual waterside spot across from the China Pavilion.
Both of the food items are new, replacing last year’s trifecta of travesty, which averaged a two out of ten on value. The Sea Butterfly joins the list of drinks, replacing last year’s Plum Tomato Cocktail.
Seriously, they used to serve a scoop of white rice for five dollars.
Disney continues to fiddle with the operating schedule at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Just this morning, they moved the Park’s opening to 7am from either 8am or 9am through February 2nd.
Here’s the current schedule:
As you can see, Disney moved the opening earlier for January 27th through February 2nd with a minimum of just five days’ notice. From February 3rd on, the Studios is still scheduled to open at 9am. The opens on most or all dates over the next several months will assuredly change to 7am or 8am, but Disney doesn’t seem willing to commit to the earlier openings, even if those dates begin less than two weeks out. If your trip falls over the next three months, I’d plan on the Studios opening at 8am at a minimum, with a 7am opening more likely. We may also see some 6am openings around peak Easter crowds from April 5th through 11th, as we did over the Christmas holiday.
