“So fun, but not for a whole day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Hollywood Studios is known as the 'fun' park at Disney World for those who aren't Disney enthusiasts. This is actually my least favorite park at Disney. (which still means its incredible) The problem with Hollywood Studios is that it needs some major updating. It needs to be expanded and half of the rest of the park needs to be replaced. You run out of things to do here in the late afternoon if it isn't busy season.

Things you can skip if need be...American Idol, Lights Motors Action Stunt Show, Muppet Vision, and Legend of Jack Sparrow (this one should be shot, it's really a waste of time)

Things you must do! Fantasmic, Tower of Terror, Backlot Tour

The food here is always good. 50's prime time, sci fi dine-in, and hollywood and vine are really fun and have delicious food.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Not normally a fan of anything Disney, we really enjoyed our day here. Highlights for our all age party were Tower of Terror, Indiana Jones stunt show, Ariel, the little mermaid show, 3D muppets, Monsters comedy show, Car stunts, Carousel and the Star Wars experience. Not so good- 20 years of film and the catering. Park and facilities were spotless.

“Maybe my expectations were too high?”

You gotta do Disney at least one time in your life. This particular park is where once is all you'll need. Hey, but it's Disney!

“My favourite of all the Disney parks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This park is ideal if you want a mixture of rollercoasters (okay not like IOA at Universal but still good) and stuff for smaller kids. The Indiana Jones show had both my 8 year old and 13 year old open mouthed. Muppets show was great and I've seen it umpteen times.

“great park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This park gets you up close and personal with how they make movies. Make sure you get fast passes for the more popular rides. Tower of Terror was awesome and the Rockin' Roller Coaster was great we had to go back and do it again. The stunt shows were great too. Make sure to check your food receipts. When we were there they gave 20% off coupons for certain stores in each park.
