Disney’s Hollywood Studios offers 135 acres of glitz, glamor and thrills. It’s a park that could easily occupy an entire day of your Disney World vacation with spectacular productions, adrenaline-pumping rides and unforgettable character experiences.
Previously known as MGM Studios, the park opened in 1989 and today is often the most popular of the four Disney parks. That popularity means it pays to know which attractions you want to visit before you go. We outlined the seven best things to do at Hollywood Studios, so you don’t miss any action.
1. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Star Wars fans have dreamed of riding aboard the Millenium Falcon, interacting with Chewbacca and battling against the First Order for decades. Guests are invited to do all this and more at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The biggest fans may want to embark on the new, immersive two-night adventure, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.
2. Toy Story Land
Toy Story Land offers countless adventures with Woody and the gang. Hop aboard the Slinky Dog Dash roller coaster to get a bird’s eye view of Andy’s backyard and beyond; take a ride on the Alien Swirling Saucers; or mingle with Woody, Buzz and Jessie as you battle for a high score on Toy Story Mania. Any families wondering what to do at Hollywood Studios Disney should know to put Toy Story Land near the top of the list.
3. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
The Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is an iconic Disney coaster featuring music by Aerosmith. The band is late for a concert, and you’re along for the ride, blasting off at high-speed and flying through two rollover loops and one corkscrew. The state-of-the-art sound system pumps music into your “stretch limo” the entire time.
4. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Mickey and Minnie are the original stars of Disney World, and they welcome you aboard their train on a ride filled with adventure, plot twists, a bit of dancing, and plenty of laughs. Not only is it the newest attraction in the park, it’s filled with fun for the entire family, from preschoolers to adults.
5. Frozen Sing-Along Celebration
Bring your at-home Frozen sing-along skills to the theater for the Frozen Sing-Along Celebration with Kristoff, Anna and Elsa. The show is filled with all the magical surprises, costumes and theatrics you’d expect from the team at Disney and the Frozen cast.
6. Dine at 50’s Prime Time Cafe
Many guests are unaware that one of the best things to do in Hollywood Studios is eat. This 50’s-themed diner known as 50’s Prime Time Café, faces Echo Lake and offers a diverse menu of meals meant to bring back memories of a family home cooked meal. Favorite items include Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken and Grandma’s Chicken Pot Pie.
7. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
The Tower of Terror is one of the most legendary attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It is based on the Twilight Zone TV series that aired during the late 1950s and early ‘60s. Enter the Hollywood Tower Hotel, step aboard a rickety elevator, and prepare for scream-worthy rises and falls.
