When you visit the Orlando Hollywood Studios in Florida the first thing you notice from the entrance is that it looks as if you are walking into a Movie Studio lot from back in the 1930s or 1940s. The styling will definitely make you feel as if you have gone back in time. When the park was first built, it was originally called the Disney-MGM Studios but in 2008, the name was changed to Disney Hollywood Studios to bring in a new era of movie-making styles and designs. I am kind of surprised that at the time of the name change, they did not put a different spin on the sections of the park that take you back to the golden age of film making but honestly, it is pretty cool that they didn’t. This way, you get the best of all worlds in one park. The Hollywood Studios in Orlando brings in a lot of visitors each and every day and is one of the most loved theme parks in the Disney World arena. This being said, take some time to map your day when you visit so you have a better chance of fitting in everything you would like to do. The park is broken up into 6 main themed areas but everywhere you go, it looks like you are walking through a live movie set. The fake building fronts and the main street lined with giant Palm Trees can make you feel like a movie star, if only for a short time.

Attractions at Hollywood Studios in Orlando

There are a number of great rides and attractions at the Studios Theme Park. Everyone will start to get very excited while driving in because it is near impossible to miss one of the main iconic rides that were purposefully set in a position to be seen from the drive-in. Scary and full of screams, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is a striking structure that makes you nervous as you enter and fills the entire ride with anticipation and thrills. If you have little ones that are not ready for this ride yet, you can always split up and take them to the Beauty and the Beast Show right next door. The Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith is right around the corner. This thrilling launch coaster is full of twists, turns, and inversions while keeping the ride in an enclosed structure. Other than the lighted neon signs along the way, it is pretty dark so it is difficult, if not impossible, to see what is coming up next. If you are a coaster enthusiast, this might be the best ride in the park for you. There are a total of 6 themed areas with different types of rides in each theme.

“Citizens of Hollywood”?

Characters that you will see wandering the streets at Hollywood Studios Orlando are called “Citizens of Hollywood”. Most of these “Citizens” will be found on the main streets of Sunset Boulevard and Hollywood Boulevard. They are usually out looking for talent so don’t be surprised if you become part of their street show. Keep a sharp eye out because you will probably run across some Disney or Pixar characters while you walk around the park as well.
