“Sooo much fun at Hollywood Studios! Needs new rides/attractions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

I've always enjoyed Hollywood Studios from the first time I ever visited in 1992 when it was still MGM Studios. With that being said, I think Hollywood Stuidios could stand to have some kind of expansion with added attractions just as Magic Kingdom has done with Fantasy Land. This park definately has the older crowd in mind with the awesome Indian Jones & car stunt show, but also has things to interest the little ones too with the Toy Story Mania ride & Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast Shows.

Attractions not to be missed are Star Tours, Rock N Roller Coaster & the Studio Back Lot Tour. Fast passes are available for most of the popular rides & it's best to get them early in the day before they run out. Fantasmic is a must see & I highly recommend getting VIP tickets at a Fantasmic Dinner at either Hollywood & Vine or The Hollywood Brown Derby. We had a character lunch at Hollywood & Vine because my son loves Special Agent Oso, but expect to wait in a super long line if you don't have a reservation. We always make reservations at all restaurants that allow them & wouldn't even bother trying to get a table if we didn't.

Hopefully Disney has some new upgrades in store for Hollywood Studios because this park is in need for some newer, fresher stuff:)

“Not sure how it competes with the bigger parks...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

But this park is good for about two hours or so the it's time to go... Rock and roll roller coaster is fun, the tower of terror is cool but its not worth the money or time..if you live I Orlando or are there for a long length of time then fit it in to say you went

“More fun for adults, IMO”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

This is my 4 year olds least favorite park but my husband loves it here. Tower of Terror, Star Tours, Rockin Roller Coaster are all awesome rides but not for the younger ones. There also aren't as many fun dining choices here. At Christmastime the park is amazing and you definitely have to see it at least once!

“Outstanding Park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We visited with our 7 year old and enjoyed this park very much. We liked most of the attractions in this park starting with the stunt shows, star wars and the studio special effects shows, the final presentation was Fantasmic which is outstanding. Worth the price for sure..

“Loads of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

One of Disney's best parks! There are so many great rides/attractions, you won't find yourself wondering what to do next at any point in time!

Some of the more popular rides fill up quickly, qith Fastpasses being completely handed out before lunch, so it's best to get your fastpasses for the rides you want asap, or stand in line, else you won't get on them.

Our faves were:
Tower of Terror
Rock n Roller Coaster
Beauty and the Beast play
Lights and Cars Stunt Spectacular

Be sure to stay for Fantasmic at the end of the day - it's well worth it, but fills up quickly. Space is limited, seating for about 10k people, but the amphiteatre starts filling up over 2hrs before the show, so get there early for best seating. Food/beverages are available in the amphitheatre. Don't miss the show, it's great! It starts off a little slow, but picks up throughout, and has a great finale with many Disney characters.
