Description

Disney’s Hollywood Studios first opened in the year 1989 as Disney-MGM studios. These days Disney Hollywood Studios offers attractions that are mostly based on blockbuster movies and popular TV shows.

It is divided into six areas of different themes:-

  • The Hollywood Boulevard
  • The Echo Lake
  • The Muppet Courtyard
  • Pixar Place
  • The Sunset Boulevard
  • The Future areas

The Hollywood Boulevard:

The Hollywood Boulevard that functions as the main entrance to the park was created taking inspirations from the streets of Los Angeles. The streets feature various troubadour acts and at times there are parades. The replica Chinese Theatre houses the Great Movie Ride that pays tribute to many classic movies. Next up is Echo Lake, which was also inspired by a real location.

The Echo Lake:

The Echo Lake section of the Studios is home to three major attractions that are based on the characters created by George Lucas. Children here can receive training in maneuvering lightsabers from a Jedi master, in Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple.

The Muppet Courtyard:

Then comes the Muppet Courtyard, which is inspired by Jim Henson’s ‘the Muppet Show’. The area houses the Muppet Vision 3D.

Pixar Place:

The Toy Story Midway Mania is the greatest attraction of Pixar Place. Luxo Jr. the desk-lamp mascot of Pixar can be found here in the form of a six-foot-tall audio-animatronic, performing shows all throughout the day and the evening. The Star Wars Launch Bay, present here, allows visitors to meet-and-greet Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and Kylo Ren.

The Sunset Boulevard:

It is home to two of the most popular attractions of the entire park- the classic television series based ‘Twilight Zone Tower of Terror’ and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Coaster Starring Aerosmith.

The Future areas:

Lastly, the Future areas are still under development. There is going to be an expansion of the ‘Star Wars Land’. There is also going to be a Toy Story Land, across an area of 11- acres.

However, there are some rides that must be mentioned specifically.

Tower of Terror:

With a thrilling and exciting story, ‘Tower of Terror’ is a free-fall ride, set in the Twilight Zone will surely grab your attention. The ride follows the story of a famous Hollywood hotel that is now in ruins. The ride is 13-stories high and with the eerie audio-video effects it becomes extraordinary.

One Man’s Dream:

The next attraction that comes is known as ‘One Man’s Dream’ was created as a tribute to Walt Disney, the man who started with a mouse and with his sorcery built an astounding empire; this walk-through tour ends with a film. It would be a mistake to consider it a dull museum, all the age-old technologies used to make some of the greatest movies are here on display.

Next up is the Star Tours: The Adventures Continue. It is a 3D motion simulator ride that takes one to different locations of the Star Wars Realm. The story starts as one sits inside the Starspeeder and discovers that one of the passengers happens to be a rebel spy, as C3PO and R2D2 comes to the salvation, one encounters Darth Vader, Storm Troopers etc. Lastly to wrap it up, Fantasmic is a nighttime show of the Disney Hollywood Studios. In the ride one enters the dreams of Mickey Mouse; show features projections, characters performing onstage, boats, and effects are introduced using fire, fireworks and other whatnots
