As I have written in my Disneyland Tips review, that use your Hopper tickets to hop from one park to the other, so not to miss out on any experience. Don't do one day only in each park, mix things up a bit and it adds to the fun! If you are staying in Santa Fe, Newport Bay or New York Disney hotels, don't use the shuttle bus, but take the walk by the river or lake. Then go through Disney Village, the bagged checking area is much faster.
Use the free fast pass system, but only one fast pass for one ride at a time! Crushes Coaster (Nemo ride) does not have a fast pass, and it is the parks most popular ride. Best rides in our opinion (kids age 8, 10 and 12) are 'Crushes Coaster' (more extreme than you think), Rock'n'Roller Coaster (very extreme), Tower of Terror (great theme thrill ride).
Don't overlook the shows on offer! Our favourite shows were 'Motors Action Stunt show', 'Cinemagique', 'Animagique' and 'Stitch live'.
Take the time to study what times they are on, and some are in French or English.
Eating places are o.k., and as you can imagine, very pricey. I have to recommend Cafe Mickey in Disney Village for the kids to experience character interaction. Book ahead if you are planning on going!
Walt Disney Studios is a more suitable park if it's raining. The park is smaller, so the shows and rides are closer together (less walking) and most of the shows and rides are indoors. The

This park is smaller than the other with an emphasis on shows (the cars stunt show is a must!). That's really not a bad thing because the shows are a longer-lasting attraction with less of a queue. If magic hours are available, arrive early because it's the only way to do Crusher's Coaster without an enormous queue. As with the other park, use the official App to avoid the rides with long queues and use FastPass for the rides that offer it.

Walk Disney Studios Park is good and worth a visit if you have the time, but only go here when you feel you have fully explored the real Disneyland. The rides and attractions are good, but nothing compared with the extravagance of Disneyland itself. Complaints about prices within the park aren't really justified - you're in Disneyland, you expect nothing less. I went in January and the lines were never that long, definitely consider going in off-peak if you can, the weather was fine when we were there but that is luck of the draw.
The one actual negative thing I have to say is that one of the rides broke down while my friend and I were in the queue, it wasnt serious and that's fine I understand parks like this experience technical difficulties from time to time. However the situation was handled poorly, and the guests in the line were not told that the ride wasn't being run and we waited there for 20-30 minutes before we realised what was going on and that we were wasting our time.

After having been to Hollywood Studios (the Walt Disney Studios' sister park over at Walt Disney World, Florida). The first thing I noticed is how much smaller it's French sibling is. Containing many of the same attractions (Tower of Terror, Rock n' Roller Coaster etc.) there is a fair amount to see and do considering the park's size. Disney have certainly packed in a wide-range of attractions to suit all tastes in such a small park. For thrill seekers you have several roller coasters and thrill rides, for families you have stunt shows and the afternoon parade, and for the little ones you have an entire Toy Story land dedicated to smaller scale attractions.

The park itself was clean and tidy (as with all Disney parks) and its been beautifully designed with its Hollywood theme perfectly captured the second you enter the studio entrance. Complete with an epic soundtrack and nice attention to detail, you've got a first-class theme park with a Disney vibe written all over it.

However, I was disappointed with the amount of meet-able Disney characters (which is never a problem in America) as aside from the afternoon parade I didn't see any characters making appearances. Plus, the food offering is dreadful in comparison to Disneyland next door; aside from a single table service restaurant you only have one or two counter service restaurants to choose from which get VERY busy at meal times. They also lack variety outside the usual fast food which may be an issue for some.

I was also disappointed with the maintenance of some attractions, specifically the Studio Tour where our in-tram LCD screen didn't work and a lot of information was lost on us. In addition, Crush's Coaster has the lowest ride capacity of any Disney attraction that I've ever seen; the wait times are unbearable. With the absence of FastPass at this ride, the queue exceeded 90 minutes during my visit. Make sure you get this ride done early!

On a final note, this park is an excellent edition to the resort. Whilst not as big as other Disney parks or as grand in comparison to Disneyland next door, it's still boasts some excellent attractions and you really shouldn't miss it. Even if you're just visiting the resort for the day, pay the little bit extra for a park hopper ticket whilst it's only a short walk from Disneyland and you can spend a few hours there during the morning or afternoon and cover all the essentials. (Just be weary this park closes at 7pm or earlier so it isn't open as late as Disneyland).

Must-do attractions-

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Rock n' Roller Coaster
CinéMagique
Crush's Coaster (If wait times permit)
Moteurs... Action! Stunt Show Spectacular

And obviously as with all Disney parks take some time to wander and explore the park, you'll have plenty to see and do outside the rides and shows.

the Studios park is obviously smaller than the Disneyland park however it still takes mea good day to get around it. I enjoy the shows. Animagique is an apsolute must!!! We also did the art of animation which we did not expect to enjoy very much but we were pleasently suprised.

The new toy story area was great. The rides are more for older children or adults in this park.

The dining options in The Studios are unimaginative ( burgers and chips) most places.
