I was very disappointed at the number of real attractions. Apart from the shows there are actually only two big attractions for adults, the rollercoaster and the Hollywood Hotel. Star Tours and the movie tours are also nice and we didn't vist Toy Story because it was 80 minutes waiting time and no more fast passes. Watch out if you hold one fast pass you can't get another!
Of the 48 attractions on the map 20 were food and 8 were shops/lockers etc so there actually only 20 attractions. We came at 9 am and at 16 pm had seen most of them which I am not used of amusement parks in Europe. For an adult Universal Studios has more to offer.

I came to Disney's Hollywood Studios with 1 request from my 8 year old daughter... To eat at Pizza Planet. With all of the money Disney has they can't make it somewhat like the Pizza Planet from Toy Story?! It looked nothing like it and the pizza sucked and was ridiculously expensive... Come on Disney you can do way better than that!!

Time your day and make the most of it , we spent all dsy going from ride to show o ride to show. Could I complain about something probably if I tried really really hard but no , everything was pure Disney, oh the title yes I forgot and that's how bad The Pirates of the Caribbean show s. Don't bother complete wate of time, talking skeleton, hologram of Jack Sparrow talking to the skeleton head and that was it waste of electricity and ten minutes of my life I will never get back.the rest of the park more than made up for ot though but please unless you want to be bored and wondering what you have seen give this one a very wide berth.

Our 9 year old loved the thrill rides here - rock n roller coaster and Hollywood Hotel tour of terror. We also really enjoyed all of the various stunts shows and behind the scenes tour. Fantasmic show is a must.

Hollywood Studios is the Smallest of all the Disney Parks, however if you do not use your time wisely you can end up doing a lot of walking. This park is mainly shows, so timing them is key. There are several attractions that are the most popular of all the parks, Toy Story Mania and Rock'n'Rollercoaster. Arrive at park opening and head straight to one of these. If you have several people with you send the fastest person to the Fast Pass line and have everyone else go straight to the line. The "runner" will quickly be able to meet up with you in line. This way you get 2 rides on one the popular attractions that usually holds lines at 45min all day. Decide what shows are most important for you to see. You will not be able to see all of them.
