We’re planning a trip w/ several other WDW veterans in September, one of whom mentioned avoiding HS on Galactic Starcruiser voyage days. While I’m very familiar w/ most of Disney’s crowd nuances from 15 years of experience, this is definitely a blind spot for me. TBH, I couldn’t care less about this whole Star Wars experience/option, so I haven’t followed the ripple effects of these “voyages” re: Hollywood Studios’ crowds.
Any insights from the community would be very much appreciated. Our specific dates are Sunday, Sept. 25 through Friday, Sept. 30.
Depending on what your agenda is for HS and how many days you have there, I would consider avoiding those days. While 400 people isn’t much when compared with all the guests, they do hold back some of the reservation slots for Savi’s, Droid Depot, and possibly Oga’s for those on the cruiser. And they get front of the line access for Rise and MFSR. So you may experience a slow down there. 400 people would take a noticeable amount of time if they are all taken there at the same time. If you don’t care about those rides/experiences then I don’t think it needs to be considered.
