    So. Boring. Why don't they get rid of crap like this.

    Now featuring narration by TCM. The guides no longer tell you about each scene themselves.

    It's so dumb now. They took what was great about it and turned it into the meh movie ride. It's ok and worth it for what it is especially for first time riders. It used to be better.

    if you love movies, you'll love this ride. as a cinephile myself, i can't not tell you that i teared up multiple times on the ride...especially during the montage at the end

    Fun ride going through some of the movie classics. Wait is usually short compared to some of the other waits for the rides in the park.

    Decent ride but not must see

    Richard Welty · August 23, 2014
  • Yvonne K.

    An awesome ride that puts you right in the middle of scenes from famous movie classics.

    Yvonne Kwan · August 16, 2014
  • Mitty C.

    Try to get seated in one of the front two rows of the car you're in, in order to get the best view. (Yes, it matters.)

    Such an incredible ride, this is Disney magic

    Look for R2D2 and C3P0 in the hieroglyphics of the Indiana Jones temple.

    The trick to getting the western scene is this. The ride must be running two groups at once. The first car or group gets the western scene. The second gets the mob scene.

    Brad · April 2, 2014
  • Kelly G.

    Honk if you love fried gangster.

    Kelly Gaudreau · March 21, 2014
  • Greg P.

    enjoy all the differing movie references, even in the queue before the ride starts, but especially in the movie snippets at the end, too!

    Hidden Mickey in the room where the tour guide leaves. Up to the left way up in the window.

    Entertaining, interesting, this is more of an adult ride, it lasts about 25 minutes, also always waiting time apps to avoid long wait

    Jessica Ormeno · December 3, 2013
  • William S.

    Dunno if it was the host of our ride, or something specific today, but the audio was horrible! We didn't understand half of what they said! Still, the ride was awesome.

    William Sanchez · November 18, 2013

    The Great Movie ride is one of two attractions that were originally slated to be a pavilion in Epcot -- "Great Moments at the Movies" is the reason Hollywood Studios is here today!!

    Jess Gahagan · November 18, 2013
  • Daniel C.

    Fun educational and air conditioned!

    Daniel Chandler · October 25, 2013
  • PSU-Lion D.

    Sit in the middle of the car for best view of all the action. In front rows, you have to turn your head to see.

    PSU-Lion Di · October 21, 2013
  • Michael D.

    The trailers before the actual ride are awesome!

    Nobody wants to hear you name the movies in the ending movie montage... shut your piehole.

    Mugsy usually wins the Worst Actor in Disney award, lol.

    Great place to take a nap to recharge for the good rides.

    Katie Kuehl · July 24, 2013
  • Raylene T.

    The only reason to ride this ride is if you need to sit in air conditioning. So long, so boring. Time to knock this down!

    Raylene Taskoski · July 19, 2013
  • Julie R.

    The bandit/cowboy seen will be seen by the cars which leave from the bay closest to the marquee. Usually during busy seasons.

    Julie Reed · July 12, 2013
  • Mare H.

    The ride is a classic! Forever one of my favorite rides! 😍👍👏

    As a worker once said, don't expect an update soon...it's the GREAT Movie Ride...not the CURRENT Movie Ride.
