Disney's Hollywood Studios (WDW)


Welcome to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Welcome to the Crossroads of the World

Walking down Hollywood Boulevard

At the end of Hollywood Boulevard is the Chinese Theatre

Let's head down Sunset Boulevard next.

At the very end of the street is the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, a multi-dimensional thrill ride that culminates in a drop ride.

Next door is Rock 'N' Roller Coaster.

This is an indoor launched looping roller coaster.  It's a lot of fun.

Let's head into the Animation Courtyard next.

Over here past the jungle of strollers is Disney Junior Live on Stage

Straing ahead is the Star Wars Launch Bay.

Inside you can see different models from the movies.

You can also see several different costumes that were used.

There are also character meet and greets with several Star Wars characters including Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, BB8 and more.

The long running Voyage of the Little Mermaid stage show is still going.

It is basically a cliff notes version of the animated movie.

I am very surprised that it is still playing to capacity crowds, but that could be because most of the park is currently under construction.

Next up is Pixar Studios.

The main attraction is Midway Mania.

The queue line is full of large versions of famous toys.

I really liked the huge etch a sketch

Midway Mania takes you through several games where you can score points and see how you stack up against the others on your cart.

You can also meet Pixar characters in this area including Cruz Ramirez from Cars 3

You can also meet green army men from Toy Story.

The thematic elements in this area are a lot of fun.

The Studios' Christmas Tree is in the middle of Echo Lake

The Indiana Jones Stunt Show Spectacular is up next.

Look there he is - Indiana Jones.

I have a bad feeling about this.

This looks like a nice and quiet market place.

Never mind.

Jedi Training Academy looks like a lot of fun for the kids.

Let's go ride Star Tours.

The films that they are currently showing feature planets from the newest Star Wars movie.  It was a lot of fun to go "somewhere new"

The last area of the park is Muppets Courtyard where Muppet Vision plays.  This is a crazy 3D movie that is beyond silly.

For now that concludes Hollywood Studios - but soon this park will have some all new attractions that are sure to pack the guests in.
