    Sad to see it go, but the movie industry never took off here like it was once thought it would. Very interesting when I was younger and they were working on movies at the time.

    Nice ride. When you are walking in the line, you will see few of the items that they used in the movies.

    It's a bit dated and lengthy. However, it's one of the few places to see authentic movie props.

    That was terrible! I left after the first fake movie water special effects act.

    This is a great way to see Disney from a whole other perspective!!!

    Ibuprofen or any pain reliever can be found at the AFI store.

    If you do not like to get wet do not stand in the far right line. Go as far left as possible, Trotsky Style.

    My least favorite backlot tour (compared to Universal and Warner Bros.). I wouldn't say skip it, but just don't expect much. Also, plan your line - not worth it if you will line up more than 40mins.

    Cool! It is a must see!

    Avoid this ride if it's raining, they always close it down as soon as the rain starts

    This ride is a shell of its former self. Used to be cool when MMC was in production.

    If it is hot volunteer you will be happy later

    It is a great tour. Worth the time.

    Disappointing. I saw non-recognizable props from older movies. Nothing big from the passed decade. Go to LA and see a REAL backlot!

    Who here remembers the old version of the tour. The near three hour version when NY Street wasn't open to foot traffic?

    Chris · May 16, 2013
  • T P.

    Pretty boring unless someone in your group volunteers to be an actor. I did that and it was fun.

    T Plennes · May 9, 2013
  • Gabrielle M.

    If u hear them ask for a volunteer before you get to the show before the ride do it you get wet and its fun!!

    Don't miss this one! It was awesome and I got to see Hannah Montana's house. Ha

    See if you can spot the Star Wars vehicle; my wife did. #eagleeyedgeek :)

    New movie props/costumes in the American Film Institute display - Gone With the Wind & The Sound of Music now featured in addition to others! :)

    Look for the Flight of the Navigator ship!

    Skip this. Disney, please do something with this. It's the biggest waste of time and space.

    Connor · March 19, 2013
  • Tuesday B.

    Left side on the team, be prepared to become a little wet!

    I enjoyed the tour. Very interesting

    Lame ride. Don't bother unless you need to waste time.

    Felicia Graham · February 26, 2013
  • erica w.

    Sit on the left. You will stay the driest ;)

    erica wheaton · January 3, 2013
  • Brooke

    The left side of the trolley has the best view but also gets wet. The trolly goes too fast to really look at the costume and scene shops.

  • Rich S.

    There are four lines you can choose from, if you bring my son, he will always pick the longest line even when it is obviously the longest line

    You can bring drinks and food on tour

    I only ride this to see the Golden Girls House ... And it's not even part of it anymore. WOMP!

    This used to be an amazing experience. Now it is truly a joke.

    Adrian Giannotta · July 23, 2012
  • Shawna G.

    Boring. That's about enough to cover it.

    Shawna Gutierrez · June 19, 2012
  • Renee S.

    Waiting a RIDICULOUS amount of time.

    Renee Simpson · May 29, 2012
  • Chris O.

    This is great if you're seeking shelter on a rainy afternoon. As others have mentioned, it's not much of anything for most of the 45 minutes though.

    Chris O · May 23, 2012
  • Andrew S.

    If someone from your group is a volunteer, you may get priority seating.

    Andrew Small · May 22, 2012
  • Wendy R.

    Don't sit in the front, of the tram. The fumes from the car pulling the tram r bad!

    Wendy Robinson · May 13, 2012
  • Jeff J.

    If you're a fan of the World of Motion from Epcot, look around the prop room before you board the tram, you'll see a few props from the classic ride!

    Jeff Jensen · April 18, 2012
  • Michael O.

    Become part of the show.

    Michael O'Neill · April 16, 2012
  • Benjamin L.

    The right-most line at the beginning will get wet in the first sequence. The left-most will stay dry. Middle lines may get wet.

    Benjamin Ludman · April 9, 2012
  • Jeremy B.

    see how special effects are made for the movies

    Jeremy Barlow · February 26, 2012
  • Mikey Swift

    Ask for the middle car & sit on the left side for best view!

    Mikey Swift · February 11, 2012
  • Luigi D.

    Way better than reviews made it seem, I think its a cool experience. You may get wet, to stay dry avoid the left side

    Luigi DP · February 3, 2012

    Skip it. Ever since they put in lights motor action this ride sucks.

    matt poulin · January 12, 2012
  • The Transit Navigator

    Go on the Backlot Tour to see some of the great effects. But take note, some people may get a tad wet.
