Mobile New Hollywood Studios FPP tier levels

Not sure if this has already been reported but it looks like the HS tiers for FPP is changing when galaxys edge opens.

It looks like all rides except star Tours and the new Star Wars ride will be tier 1, Star Wars ride non FPP, and Star Tours and shows a tier 2. I really hope this is temporary. I canít see it working.

Short Story: On August 29, Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Rollercoaster will be added to Toy Story Mania, Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers as Tier 1 Fastpass+ selections. Star Tours stays a Tier 2. Smuggler's Run still set to open as a non-FP ride. I am unaware of any other changes to the tiers.

Source: I'm staying club level for SWGE's opening, and I decided to do the paid FP selections. When you do that, you actually get to make 6 FP selections 90 days from your departure date, so I was able to do that on Saturday. You pick 3 to be the "paid" FP, which you cannot modify or cancel without calling/emailing Disney Signature Services; and you get to make 3 "regular" FP, which you can modify/cancel just like any other FP selection. When I checked my app, I noticed that my selections did not quite match what I had asked for. When I emailed with my question, I was told that on August 29, the MGM tiers were changing, and that the new Tier 1 will be TSM, SDD, A.S.S., ToT, and RnR.

I am not an insider, I am just relaying information I was told in an effort to help folks out who are starting to look at FP planning for late August. Assuming this is accurate, I would think it would be announced in the next couple of weeks, because people will be able to start making 60+14 selections for August 29 around June 16.

Thoughts: As a person who prefers rides to shows, I think it is absurd, and it makes the EPCOT tiers look almost reasonable. There will be 7 rides at MGM starting 8.29: 5 will be Tier 1, 1 will be Tier 2, and 1 will have no FP.

The best reason I can come up with is that this is their effort to control crowds. I am guessing that most ride-riders try to get SDD, ToT and RnR. With SDD being one of the most difficult FP to secure, and assuming people will still try to get that first, the new tiers will force more folks to go standby for ToT and RnR, which will increase those wait times, which will keep more people occupied in those longer lines. A "positive" could be that it becomes easier to get SDD FP, as some folks will prefer ToT or RnR.

At the end of the day, while you may think the paid FP are ridiculous, extravagant and/or bougie (and I won't argue any of those descriptions), for me, for this trip, it was absolutely the right decision.
Thanks to wdwmagic for the info

I can see the logic as it may spread crowds a bit. We tend to struggle with a second tier 2 FP as I donít like RRC and my sister doesnít like ToT so this wonít affect us much. Annoying for others though.

I wonder whether this is tied to the story circulating a couple of months ago about Disney introducing more paid FPs?

Could (and I emphasies it's just a "could") be that they will offer more Tier 1 FPs for paying customers? Running HS as a trial?

Of course, all speculation and I'm probably putting 2&2 together and getting 7.

So pretty much all rides are Tier 1?

That sounds like madness to me. Would have to make multiple visits to be sure to get on all rides.

I can see how it would reduce crowds, as it kind of makes it pointless even going to HS. However as a paying guest, I feel very aggrieved by it.

Like others can see what theyíre trying to do, but as someone who only has a 1 day ticket to HS, there is no way we are going to get to ride everything. Between us we love the rides as HS. Weíre obsite for 5 night so can try for 60 days but I donít fancy our chances much. Could quite easily give HS a miss in all honesty, with crowd levels, plus this, I donít think I can be bothered and can use that ticket to visit somewhere else!

This is needed with the bigger crowds, more people in the park means less big FPs per person. No point complaining about it, just crowd control.
