I have visited the studios in Paris and I must admit I love Magic Kingdom much more than the studios, maybe next time Ratatouille will change my mind? So when we first arrived in Disney World I wasn’t really tempted to visit the Hollywood Studios.
The fact that there was a Frozen show and a Jedi training academy triggered our children so what kind of parents would we be if we wouldn’t go and Let it go whilst our little Jedi was fighting Darth Vader?
To cut to the chase…this is a great park, you can’t compare it with the studios in Paris. To start this theme park is much bigger and offers more shows and attractions.
Make sure to book some Fast Passes and visit the following attractions and shows- Lee from guest services was a big help:
- Tower of Terror – the one and only! Here in Orlando you find more details and a whole decaying hotel garden while queuing. The ride is as exciting as the one in Disneyland Paris.
- Frozen Sing a Long and the Little Mermaid show if you have little princesses travelling with you. They will just love the sight of Elsa and Ariel.
- Star Tours and the Jedi Academy for little wannabe Jedis
- The Indiana Jones Stunt show – as great as it was in my memory from years ago. Just the questions of the kids…mom who is Indiana Jones, what does he do?….a hero of our childhood….
- The Great American Movie Ride – as goofy as it sounds it is nice to enter a replica of the Chinese theater in LA and visit some epic movie sets like Indiana Jones (there he is again), Alien, Casablanca and the Wizard of Oz.
- The Muppet Show if you are into Kermit, Miss Piggy and the Cookie Monster.
- Honey I Shrunk the Audience is a nice one to but once again, no knowledge about this movie with the kids.
You can go by boat from the Hollywood Studios to Epcot and some of the Disney Resorts such as Swan, Dolphin and Boardwalk. This is a nice complimentary way of transportation and much more relaxing than taking a bus.
This park doesn’t really allow nice dining. Hamburgers and fries at self -service counters or in a Sci-Fi drive in restaurant or some classic meatloaf and milkshakes at an all American diner.
