We went with our grandkids - otherwise, we've had enough. Some of the stunt shows were cut back a bit because of the lousy weather, but everything went on.

The new Toy Story Mani ride is pretty awesome... expect LONG lines. Do it first thing of get a Fastpass - also first thing - because they run out.

The new FastPass+ system is a pain... there are different rules in each park, the choices are limited, and you basically have to know your schedule for the entire day when you go the the centralized kiosk.

Still - the park is unmatched, especially for first and second timers. We're pretty much Disneyed-out, but we took our grandchildren, and it's a whole different experience.

The Meet-and-Greets take forever - but the kids love them, and the characters DO take time to give each child personalized attention.

We just love this park , we go to Florida every Easter, we have a condo in the Kissimmee area .
I could ride all day long, on the Hollywood Tower of Terror , I love this ride , it's a giant lift that drops about 5 floors in the darkness , and all of a sudden , it takes your breath away and your tummy ends up in your brain , but is very exciting , and me not a ride junkie at all !!! ha! ha!, great day out lovely shows on , nice eateries , more big coaster rides , interactive shows , something for all the family, and the firework show at the end of the day is worth sticking around for , will be visiting again for sure this year , this is one park not to miss ... :)

Hollywood Studios isn't my favorite Walt Disney World Park, but it is still very fun. I will be the first to admit Tower of Terror is a blast, and you can't miss picking up a Pretzel hot dog Min and Bill's Dockside Diner (mmmmmm....I'm hungry just thinking about it.)

There is a lot of focus on the Disney Channel, which isn't my thing, but if you enjoy it, this is for you.

If hollywood and sparkle and old jazz is your cats meow then this is the place for you. Its everything old style hollyqood from old motor cars to glitzy showgirls to behind the scenes action tours of so e of our classic films made back in the day. There is any area and genra for every age in the family. The new age and more daring stuff are off to the corner in the right where young folks can test how well there bowel movements can be held on rock and roller coaster and hollywood tower of terror. And then there is the more relaxed and detailed rides like the classic movie tour ride that is straight back as you ealk in the park. You move at a snails pace through the story of how film firat came about. Naturally the skits that are littered throughout the show, provide good humor entertainment.
The little little onea can fo crazy with the characters that they see on their morw disney jr shows. Even little mermaid has a home. The muppets have been there forever.
Not too big on the food choices but then again I go tot this park for the rodes and entertainment!

We went on a very rainy day and about 50-60 degrees. We still had a blast. All of the characters were still out, some in different spots. The park is smaller than the others so walking from one side to the other doesnt take much time, not like epcot. Most of the attractions, if not all have shelter. So if you run into a rainy day, then visit this park.

The honey i shrunk the kids playset was closed because of the rain, which would have been fun for my son. The other thing was that Mike and Sulley meet and greet was closed the day we went, check for schedule as they are only there certain days of the week.

One last tip...Get there very early if you want a fastpass for Toy Story Mania. We showed up at 1115 and they were out of fastpasses. With the new FastPass+, it changes everything so you will have to adapt. If you are staying on Disney then make sure to book Toy Story ahead of time.

Just remember this park only has a couple thrill rides and if you have young ones there is a height limit so you will be limited. Even Star Tours has a 40" requirement.

Disney Junior stage show is cool for young ones, but you have to sit on the ground, inside, for 30 minutes, which for most of the adults i could see was tough.
