this is totally amazing theme park, with so much to do, my family and myself just loved star tours with many different goes,we also liked the rock and roll rollercoaster, which is a mind blowing experience and I would recommend you have ago. my granddaughter especially loved the tower of terror, which is a pretty hair raising ride, there are many attractions, like indianna jones stage show which is well worth seeing, you will find plenty of places to eat and drink with a variety of choice. the star wars weekends are really enjoyable and such good fun. I really cant find fault with this park, some people might find it very busy

Disney Hollywood studios is great. It has all the Disney magic you'd expect to find from any of their parks but with some of the better rides. Attractions of note were the Tower of Terror, The Aerosmith roller coaster, Toy Story 4D, Muppets 4D Theatre, Star Wars simulator, Backlot Tour and the Historic Movie Tour. The Streets of America sets are really cool too, it's like roaming through 50's America, big buildings, bigs classic cars etc, straight out of the movies. We visited as a group of adults and were well entertained for the full day.

It is not that big, so you can ride almost all the attractions in less than a day. It has attractions for everyone: Tower of terror and Rockn'roller coaster for teenagers and grown-ups and the Toy Story Ride for children. Star Tours was revamped maybe 2 yrs ago. Get there early and run to the Toy Story ride which is the one that usually has the longest line

Although I would take children to this park I found it was geared towards adults. There are not too many rides but what they have is pretty good. They have some street performances which were hilarious (they are listed on the show time sheet) The rock n roller coaster is amazing and they have a single rider option so you don't have to wait in line.

The Toy Story Mania ride is crazy popular and they ran out of fast passes before 3:00PM even though the park was not too crowded. I would recommend you go to this ride first thing and get a fast pass so you can go a second time without a long wait. The ride is awesome, not just for kids, and you will want to ride more then once. My mom is 52 and wanted to ride non-stop, I am 23 and felt the same.

There are a few calm rides that are still entertaining. The great movie ride, although a bit slow at first since it starts with older movies that many people (especially younger ones) have not watched but picks up later with newer films. I would recommend, especially since not many people seem to be interested and there was no wait time.

The shows are not to be missed, get the time sheet when you first enter the park so you don't miss any of them. Most of them run constantly every hour or 1/2 hour but some are only a few times a day and stop running hours before the park closes. The little mermaid and beauty and the beast are the best ones (get to all shows at least 10 minutes early and you can get an ideal seat.

The legend of Jack Sparrow is not a ride and is not very good. I love Pirates of the Caribbean and am a huge JD fan, however, you stand in line for the show, then you stand for the show. It is a 10 minute "show" and just trust me it is not entertaining.

The Animation building looks boring but has some fun things to do inside. Mickey is usually in there to take pictures with throughout the day. They have a sketch class where you get to draw a Disney Character like the artists from the movies do. It's cute.

Lastly, FOOD! The ABC commissary has good options for fancy food eaters and gluten allergies. A person in line next to me had a gluten allergy and the cast member was required to call the manager and the manager went to the back to make sure that everything that person ate was gluten free, she even went over the options with her and let her see the ingredients (that's service). My mom is a picky eater which is why we ate here, they have a quinoa/couscous and salmon salad which she seemed to enjoy. Otherwise the menu is pretty blah, I had the hamburger, which was not good. They have a booth in front of Beauty and the Beast by the Rock n Roller coaster called Fairfax and they had gourmet hotdogs and turkey legs, delish.

O, almost forgot! Nighttime spectacular called Fantasmic, was UNBELIEVABLE! It only airs at night when the park closes and is a water, effect, and character stage show. The arena is meant to hold the entire park so its huge but you MUST arrive 15 minutes early to get a decent seat. Don't miss!
