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.
It’s likely that Disney will move the openings to 7am at some point in the near future. Considering regular/guaranteed Rise of the Resistance boarding groups were filled within two minutes over the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend, it seems unlikely that Disney would open Hollywood Studios at 8am around Presidents Day Weekend, which is an even more crowded time of year.
The website will continue to monitor the situation.
