As from today, Sunday 15th January 2012 for one week only, ending Friday 20th January, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be trialling a new opening procedure. It is affectionally referred to as the "rope drop" by guests and cast members but without a rope. The changes are: Turnstiles will open at 8:30am The attractions that will be open at that time are Toy Story Mania! Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror All of the other attractions will open at 8:45am and if you arrive at one of these attractions before opening you will need to wait in line until the attraction opens. If you want to sign up for the Jedi Training Academy, this will begin at 8:30am at the ABC Sound Studio (former home of Sounds Dangerous). FASTPASS distribution will be available at all attractions beginning at 8:30am It will be interesting to see if Disney decide to continue with this operation in the future.
