Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway closes before the rest of the park due to its position in the pyro fall-out zone of the daily nighttime show.

Disney's Hollywood Studios closed at 8:30pm yesterday, and guests were not allowed into the standby at around 7:50pm. The Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular show began at 9pm, giving the attraction roughly an hour to move guests through the queue and ride.

Although plans can always change, expect the standby line to close around 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to the nighttime show.

Present a better option. So far your choices are: - Use the boarding groups. - Close the ride until it's fully operational.

Screw boarding groups. It's a horrible program that is extremely unfair to guests, unless you happen to be one of the chosen few who gets one. The line length is should be the limiting factor! I'm beginning to think that passholders are a bigger issue in Florida versus California. However, the real issue is that aside from Magic Kingdom, the three other theme parks are extremely short of rides and attractions and the biggest issue is FastPass+, which is killing operations.

It closed at a similar time yesterday but also went 101 almost immediately after the line was cut.

Closed at 750 opening night. Not sure what happened yesterday.

Does anyone know if the ride’s line closes off before the park closes?

Maybe he'll take that money to pay some dude on Fiverr to meet Marni.

Either works for me :)

More likely to be in Manchester UK first. 😉

@marni1971 I've decided. I will legitimately pay $50 to get this man to meet you at the swamps. PM me or start a fundraiser and we'll make it happen with other people.

Was able to ride yesterday via FP+ 1. TGMR holds nothing near and dear for me. So the only negative to it’s loss is that it had a lot of AA’s & it was a people eater. DHS needs attractions so I’m always for “additions” S opposed to replacements. 2. we enjoyed the ride. I went in not expecting RotR or anything mind blowing but a fun whimsical family ride, and that’s what we got 3.This type of ride is sorely needed in DHS (dark ride) 4. Lots of kinetic energy, projection mapping, animation, very repeatable. nothing like it on property

Empty seats on an attraction worthy of a boarding group? Maybe on some attractions, but not headliners.

There's a thread for BG discussion that you know exists since you've posted in it. It's off-topic here. https://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/vq-bgs-virtual-queues-boarding-groups-yay-or-nay-better-alternatives.963117/
