    Great park for older children. Many fun rides and activities. Must do Star Tours, Tower of Terror, and Aerosmith ride. They also have Jedi training, but must get there at park open to secure spot.

    Don't miss the Star Tours and the show where littles ones are trained to become a Jedi!!! Light, Motors, Action is also a great show. The tower of terror is excellent! And PLEASE, WATCH Fantasmic!

    besides Magic Kingdom and Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios is a fantastic theme park for movie lovers and families and kids! as a movie lover who hasn't been here since I was 4, I was blown away!

    If you're lucky you might just get the magic ( tray at the food court next to "Honey I Shrunk the Kids". My mom did, and when you get a magic tray you get a free dessert, either choc. cake or chzcke!

    has the most for the buck if you have different age levels in your group. The Great movie ride is my all time favorite get to enjoy the movies at their best. Though it will always remain mgm to me.

    Even that is 1.5 than Magic kingdom feels smaller, use your fast pass for Rock n' roller coaster and tower of terror. The best location to see the Star Wars show is in front of the projectors

    Great park for older kids and movie lovers, don't miss frozen and little mermaid shows, fast pass recommended for twilight zone and toy story, truly oriented to Star Wars 2nd park to visit after MK

    At Disney’s Hollywood Studios the movie magic turns into reality. The tower of terror is wonderful, Fantasmic is the best thing to watch ever. I usually go there with my kids such a fantastic place!!!

    I had so much fun there! I know people complain that it's too small of a park to enjoy in one day, but I completely disagree. I saw absolutely EVERYTHING and enjoyed a few adult beverages as well.

    This particular Disney park tends to feel hotter than the others. Like Hollywood, this park has a lot of asphalt that attracts a lot of heat. Visit the park before the hottest time of day or at night.

    If you get in the mornig and u do want to ride toys story go fast and get the fast pass or get in the stand by line. Tower's line is quite fast, Coaster too! Fantasmic is a must see! :)

    Toy story, rockin roller and tower of terror - hands down three best in the park. If you r lucky, a Disney team member might give u an extra wild card fast pass! Ask nicely and act desperately

    The centerpiece of the park is The Great Movie Ride, a one of a kind attraction featuring real performers and plenty of movie special effects. Watch out for Gangsters and Bandits!

    Fast pass - Tower of Terror, Fantasmic and Rockin Rollercoaster but don't miss Disney Jr. Live (for little ones) or Sing a Long Frozen (great show and a ton of fun!)

    Pizza Planet Arcade (#21 on map) has surprisingly great food and value for the $. A perfect place to hang while waiting for the Star Tours ride FastPass time. Veggie pizza was delish !

    For a great meal, make a reservation! For a spontaneous time, enjoy counter service! If you don't like counter service or making reservations, leave and go to T.G.I.Fridays; this is a theme park!

    In MY day, it was called MGM Studios, and the BACKLOT tour was of the BACKLOT! (they tore down that part of tv/film history for a stuntshow) Oh, and it was also a STUDIO!! Sigh. Still love it though!

    Use the sideshows and seemingly-spontaneous parades to your advantage: they're designed and timed to redirect traffic thru the park and un-crowd rides; lines are shorter around them at those times.

    You definitely have to ride The Aerosmith Rock'n'Roller Coaster, The Rip Ride Rockit, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and The Simpsons Ride. After the rides, The Fantasmic show is a must! 👍👍👍

    If you're looking for a good (alcoholic) drink and a bite to eat, head to Tune In...They have the 50's Prime Time Cafe menu available and a full bar!

    There are many spontaneous skit shows that happen throughout the park. Make a point of it to stop and watch or even become part of the magic. Especially of no one else is around.

    If you get there at opening for the Buzz Lightyear ride, be sure to power walk in front of people to get to the ride once they walk with you inside. Otherwise, you're out of luck!
  • Lynda J.
    I love this park it's prob my fav it's just the right size you can do it in one day or not. The Great Movie ride is prob my fav . You can't miss The Tower of Terror it's awesome!

    If you plan to go on the Toy Story ride, grab a FastPass the as soon as you enter the park. Wait times can reach 120 minutes, and the FastPasses run out quickly!

    An array of live shows and music performances, plus thrill rides such as the original Tower of Terror. Step into the Hollywood that never was and always will be...

    Well this is the last year they are going to have them but the Osbourne Christmas lights that dance to music has always been what has gotten us to go out to the park and get us in the Christmas spirit

    The Writer's Stop is the only coffee shop in Disney World and has interesting books and souvenirs. It's quiet and a nice place to relax midday and people-watch.

    Be sure u head to Toy Story Mania first thing when the park opens . The line for the ride will be over 75 minutes in no time at all plus all the fast pass will be gone for the day if you're not quick

    While a Fastpass is nice for Midway Mania, make sure to do the standby queue too. The artwork is beautiful, and Mr Potato Head's comedy is great.

    If you're looking for a big kid drink skip the over priced "signature drinks". A wells drink with favorite mixer is only 7$ and change. That's cheaper than some of the beers!

    The newly updated Star Tours is a must see. Crowds do thin out right after the parade. So the best bet for your first Fastpass of the day is still Toy Story Midway Mania.

    The turkey legs were surprisingly good! They were seasoned well and very tender! Not dry at all! Can't wait until next year!

    Toy story Midway mania, rock'n roller coaster, and Tower of terror are absolutely the best rides! Get a fastpass to skip the crazy long lines! Also, left side entrance has shorter bag check lines.

    One of my favorite parks. Love all of the movie based attractions. Backlot tour is a classic. Get a Fastpass for Midway Mania!

    Amazing Ride with a lot to do. They have the best indoor coaster ever!!! The car show is also good. Tower of terror is Another story.

    Line up for Fantasmic at least an hour ahead of time. Lines can lead to the front of the park and seating runs out. A MUST-SEE SHOW! Don't skip it because the line looks too long; it's worth it °o°

    Laura LovaglioAugust 23, 2013
    Get here way BEFORE park opening like 8 am. They let people in today before 9 and toy story mania was a 40 min wait at 8:50 a.m. Get your fast pass for TSM first before you do anything else !
  • Melanie H.
    Melanie HannaschJune 9, 2012
    If you want to ride to the toy story ride, make a mad dash when the park opens to get a fast pass or ride standby...the wait is 80 mins or more most times!

    There is a refreshment stand by Rock N' Rollercoaster. Be sure to stop for a Root Beer float on a hot day. There are also restrooms behind it and they are rarely busy.

    Frozen sing along show was incredible... Booked through the fast pass and didn't spend more than 10 minutes until the start of the show. Rock star and hollywood towers were good.

    Make sure you get a fastpass for toy story mania right away, they go fast. Also the ride is worth the long wait if you have to, sometimes its not as long as it says

    Get your fast pass for Toy Story Mania immediately after entering the park. It's the best ride in all of Disney World for kids and adults. You're lucky if you wait less than 80 minutes on stand-by.

    For Summer 2014: If you go to Fantasmic, you'll need to leave a bit early (after dragon is slain) in order to get a decent spot to see the Frozen Fireworks.

    Scifi Diner is really cool. You get to sit in a 1950's car and enjoy the drive-in shows while you're served! Make reservation as soon as you get there.

    Fast passes are high tech now......all electronic.....they schedule your times using ipads , linking to your ticket/card/band and then you scan in at the attraction. So awesome!

    Hollywood tower of terror.. Worth it.. And rockin roller coaster, the super fast launch gives you a thrill you can't get on any other coaster..

    Three things you can't miss: Tower of Terror, Toy Story Mania and the Fantasmic show. Using the fast pass for Toy Story is wise. And don't forget to use the "MyDisney Experience" app.
