From Magic Kingdom to Animal Kingdom, to EPCOT, to Hollywood Studios, each Disney Park has something different to offer Guests.

Magic Kingdom is undeniably the most popular, with attractions for younger and older Guests alike. Animal Kingdom is perfect for those wanting a Disney day full of wild thrills and educational animal facts. EPCOT offers the best snacks and drinks, making it a better Park for older audiences.

But Hollywood Studios is easily the most thrilling out of the four Parks, with attractions such as the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Slinky Dog Dash, and the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.

Hollywood Studios also has stunning shows such as the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, For the First Time in Forever: A “Frozen” Sing-Along Celebration, Beauty and the Beast – Live On Stage, and of course, Fantasmic!, making it a great Park for thrill-seekers and those who love live entertainment alike.

But recently, Guests who visit Hollywood Studios have found themselves disappointed by the experience. The Park has iconic, must-ride attractions such as Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Toy Story Mania, and more. With so many must-ride attractions and fewer niche attractions, it can be frustrating when many of them break down at once, which is what happened to a Guest who recently visited.

Immediately, the replies came pouring in, many of them in agreement.

User r/fersure4 wrote, “Oof, yeah when we went last month and did the early morning hours a lot was down. Walk down sunset to get told halfway down that both ToT and RNR are down. Okay… let’s go to Rise to get it out of the way. Oh… rise is down too. Okay let’s jump on line for MMRR. Wait for 10 minutes and…. that went down too. They all came back up later in the day, but it was a rough start to that day.”

Another user wrote, “The last 3 times I’ve been there Slinky Dog, RotR, and Runaway Railway have all had problems during the morning extra magic 30 minutes.”

A vast majority of the comments on this thread agree: rides at Hollywood Studios break down so frequently that the recent visits have resulted in frustration and disappointment.
