Disney's Hollywood Studios Quick Review, May 2008

Mom (32) says:  Hollywood Studios doesn’t have many rides, but there are lots of shows and things to see and do!  Fantasmic is the best of all the Walt Disney World evening firework/entertainment shows!  The giant Sorcerer Mickey hat is a sight to see at night when it’s all lit up.  There are lots of Villain shops here, not just princesses!   I didn’t care for most of the themeing at Hollywood Studios…it seemed faded.

Dad (34) says:  I didn’t really like Hollywood Studios.  All the rides were just O.K. to me.  All the shows are at the same time so it makes it difficult to schedule your time to see them all.  It’s nice to have seats for Fantasmic instead of having to stand or sit on the ground.

Daughter (14) says:  The shops are cool cause they have all different kinds of stuff. 

Son (4) says:  I got to get light up glasses for Fantasmic. 


Favorite Rides:

Mom:  Tower of Terror with Rockin’ Roller Coaster close behind.

Dad:  Rockin’ Roller Coaster

Daughter: I love Tower of Terror!!!  It’s my all time favorite ride.

Son:  Star Tours



Mom:  Get there early and do all the rides before lunch then spend the afternoon shopping.  If you leave Hollywood Studios make sure to come back for Fantasmic.  If you get the kids tattoos (this is true for all of Walt Disney World) DON’T put sunscreen on them..it makes them come off instantly!!!!  Go to the Animation attraction during Extra Magic Hours (or Fantasmic) for a chance to get a drawing from the artist hosting the show.

Dad:  Definitely do Fantasmic dinner package and show up there 45 minutes early!  If you don’t do the dinner package be sure to get there at least an hour and a half early!!! 

Daughter:  Drink water.  Don’t drop your tiara off of the ledge at Rockin’ Roller Coaster.  Go to the Art of Disney Animation when it’s open. 

Son:  Light’s Motor’s Action is too loud.  Ask your mom to sit in a car at the restaurant (Sci-Fi Dine In).
