When I was at Walt Disney World for the Zootopia movie press event, I got the chance to visit every theme park, and I had such a good time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! From the Disney inspired rides, to the live shows and spectacular events, Disney’s Hollywood Studios attractions are so much fun. There’s Disney magic everywhere you look – bring the whole family and find something great for everyone!
Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a theme park like no other. Dressed in the glitz and glam of old Hollywood, California, it’s vintage look, fun attractions and amazing theater shows make this a must visit theme park during your trip to Walt Disney World! There are so many things to share, I cannot wait for you to see them in person!
There are a lot of cool, new attractions coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. A Toy Story land is in the works, which should be a big deal. Two new rides and an expansion of the Toy Story Mania ride, a favorite, will be awesome!
Also, they already have Star Wars Launch Bay attraction running, but they’re adding to the force by creating a brand new Star Wars Land, which is going to be insane! Once these two new attractions open, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is going to be the most popular park at WDW. Mark my words! Check out what I dd at Disney’s Hollywood Studios…
5 Disney’s Hollywood Studios Attractions I Experienced
1. Strolled down Sunset Blvd. and looked at all of the details in the vintage decor
I love the way they’ve made the buildings look on Sunset Blvd, it’s just how Hollywood looked back in the day! Entertainment seems to be the focus of this park, and it shows here. Look down to the end of the road and see the spooky Hollywood Tower Hotel. No, I did NOT ride it!
2. Hung out with Stormtroopers at Star Wars Launch Bay
This is one of the new Disney’s Hollywood Studios attractions, an it’s proven to be super popular! This space is full of all of the Star Wars games, movie props, videos, costumes, memorabilia, art and more. Stop into the theater for a behind the scenes look at the whole Star Wars saga, and meet and greet with Kylo Ren and Chewbacca – be careful, Kylo Ren might be in villain mode! Oh, when you’re walking around, stay out of the way of these guys – Stormtroopers! We hung out for a few minutes, then they told me to “scram, we’re patrolling the area!”
3. Hopped onto Toy Story Mania, a 4D carnival style adventure!
This is one of my favorite rides! Ride and shoot moving targets at this midway-style, 4D shootin’ game starring your favorite Toy Story characters. Toy Story Mania has cars that fit 4 riders, they spin around back and forth and Keep track of your score, and battle the person in your car to see who can get more points! I lost this time, but I’ll get her back! This ride is a fan favorite, it will be in the new Toy Story Land.
4. Dined behind the scenes at the backstage Prop Shop room
Now this was a very cool experience. The Prop Shop room is located backstage at the Hollywood Studios theme park and is an old prop storage space transformed into a special event room! There are so many amazing Disney classic pieces taken from discontinued rides, parade floats, shows, and other attractions, everything has a story. I saw Simba and some of the hyenas from an old Lion King show, Mickey Mouse was everywhere, and I think I saw a large Nemo from an old parade. So much history in this room, it is available to rent out for special events that need a little Disney charm.
5. Ended the evening at Symphony in the Stars dessert party with fireworks!
It had been a long day, but ending our evening with dessert and fireworks was a wonderful way to end it! The Symphony in the Stars dessert party starts right before the fireworks show and offers special reserved viewing with delicious sweets and treats. The whole dessert party was decked out in Star Wars decor, they a huge spread of cupcakes, cookies, krispy treats, ice cream, and even fruit kabobs and snack items available. I love these Darth Vader chocolate pieces on these cupcakes! Also, Disney knows how to put on a fireworks show, don’t miss the Star Wars themed Symphony in the Stars fireworks over the Chinese Theater!
