Disney's Hollywood Studios opened before Universal Studios opened to the public, and is an excellent theme park that offers a lot of attractions based on disney films, as well as non-disney films. There is something for everyone to enjoy, because there are fast rides like the Rock N Roller coaster, or Toy Story Mania. However GET TOY STORY MANIA FASTPASS FIRST! Toy Story Mania, for whatever reason is the most popular ride in the park, more than Tower of Terror! or Rock N Roller coaster.

“Still a fun Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

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.

“Favourite Disney Park .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

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 ... :)

“Good 1/2 day park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

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.

“Hollywood that never was”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

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!
