What fun! Everything about Hollywood studios is a blast! My kid got to be in the Jedi show on stage and we had so much fun! All the rides are great and we will totally be back!

“Fun for a few hours with Fast Pass Plus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Toy Story Mania was a hoot! Tip: read about the "Easter Eggs" before riding to maximize your score. Make sure to get fast passes, especially for this ride or plan to wait 1.5 hrs or more... Yikes!
The other rides & entertainment is fun, too. Have fun!

“Fun times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed this park. I was expecting more roller coaster rides in this park, but it was mostly shows and video simulation rides. There is the Aerosmith roller coaster and the tower of terror, which are both awesome. The best part of the day by far is a night show called fantasmic. It is amazing. I won't ruin anything for you, but it is a must see. Make sure you line up an hour or so before the show though if you want good seats as it seems to get full quickly, and I was there on a "quiet day".

“Suggestions for Hollywood Studios”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Everyone will have their own personal experience at any of the Disney Theme Parks so I will make some suggestions that may help you out a little bit. Pack drinks and snacks to avoid high prices for meals (basically anything is allowed into Disney Parks), Take advantage of the fast pass system, especially if you are a Disney Resort Guest. Book your fast passes for the afternoon/early evening hours when the park is at its busiest. TOY STORY MIDWAY MANIA is the most popular attraction so a Fast Pass is a must. Ride wait times will typically be 30 mins and longer all day long. Experience Rock N Roller Coaster in the beginning of the day since you won't be able to get Fast Passes for both Toy Story & Rock N Roller Coaster. Go on STAR TOURS more than once since there are numerous experiences. LIGHTS! MOTORS! ACTION! STUNT SHOW & FANTASMIC are must see shows. Both get VERY crowded so arrive early (at least 30 mins early for Lights, and 1 hour early for Fantasmic). THE LEGEND OF JACK SPARROW is a waste of time, so don't wait more than 5 mins for this attraction. And if its your first time in Disney, make sure to visit WALT DISNEY: ONE MAN'S DREAM to learn the history of the man who created this amazing adventure. Don't get stressed with crowds, just take it all in and enjoy yourselves!
