“very limited”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

there is nothing much here to write home about - given Disney's wealth of history in the movies one expected more.

“How it works”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is still a working studio,performers ask you to assist them with their shows around the park.some very funny.We go to this park a few times as we love going on the Tower of Terror,every time the ride is different.Hilarious watching someone that has not been on it before.Take a trip on the backlot where you see inside the studios, interesting.Don`t miss the Brown Derby coffee shop,enormous sandwiches and cupcakes mmmmm.

“Best Disney Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

For me this is the best Disney Park in Orlando. The Twilight Zone is the best ride in Orlando. I have a lot of fun. The Aerosmith roller coaster is also very nice. Lights, motors and action was also the best stage show that I saw in Orlando. I recommend all rides and shows. It is just amazing!

“Wonderful park, but confusing to get around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

We really enjoy this park. We always seem to meet the most characters here and some of their rides are our favorite of all Disney property (Star Tours, Toystory Midway Mania). The shows are fun and there is something for everyone. Although this park is fairly compact and the smallest of the Disney parks, it is laid out a bit confusing and we sometimes get lost (even with the map). I also find the dining choices to be the least favorable of all the parks. But we enjoy the attractions so much at this park that that far outweighs the lack of preferable dining.

“Smaller theme park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

The great things I liked about this theme park are:
- smaller, less overwhelming for kids
- Pixar Place has Toy Story themed stuff
- we got to meet-n-greet with lots of our favorite characters and have pictures taken, this was a lot easier to do then at Magic Kingdom.
- Lots of food choices

The downsides of this theme park:
- since it's a smaller place it didn't feel like it was run the same as Magic Kingdom, there was a lot less excitement coming out of the employees.
- FOOD ALLERGIES - you have to ask an employee who will happily get you a supervisor who knows what you can/can't eat. They don't offer a food allergen menu for you to review. I found it harder and a little more stressful to navigate with my food allergies here.
