Newest Review: ... ride in the whole of Orlando and I am now well-prepared for any of the sequences that are thrown at me but sunglasses are a good idea (as long as they are secured by a strap) as the light is blinding when the doors open. Rock'n'Roller Coaster allows you to join Aerosmith on a stretch-limo ride with a difference. The astonishing acceleration will take your breath away before you are flung ... more

Disneys Hollywood Studios was formally Disney-MGM studios, the name may have changed but the park remains the same. It is themed around the heyday of movie filming in the 1930s and it is a pleasure just to walk around and admire the attention to detail in the shops and buildings that line all the avenues. I love the art deco type feel and the stylish charm. The park opening is a pretend movie-making session and then the park opens to the cries of Lights, Cameras,Action! After walking down the main boulevard you will come across a huge Sorcerers Hat with Mickey ears and you will be in the plaza that host singing and dancing shows throughout the day. These are ...

Recently rebranded as Hollywood studios - this is the movie themed portion of the Walt Disney World theme park in Orlando, Florida. At its epicentre is a huge wizards hat (think Mickey Mouse in Fantasia) and the park is surrounding this. At certain times of the day a High School musical show runs from the centre, which is awesome to watch. Its quite a big theme park, with a lot of cool rides and shows in it, so it does get quite busy. The guidebooks tell you to turn left when you go into the park to avoid the foot traffic. Personally, I would advise against this. The main two rides are to the right of the entrance (rock and rollercoaster and ... Read the complete review

This park was originally opened in 1989 as Disney's MGM studios. In 2008 it had a name change and is now known as Disney's Hollywood Studios. The park is based on the movies, and is designed to give guests an insight into what its like behind the scenes. As you enter the park the first thing you will notice is the huge Sorcerer Mickey hat. The park was the focal point for the 100 years of Magic Celebration that began in 2001 to celebrate the 100th Birthday of Walt Disney. When the celebration ended the hat remained and is a focal point of the park. The park is divided into a few sections - HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD - The Main walkway of the park. This ...

Disney Hollywood studios was the 3rd park built by Disney. It opened in May 1989 but was named as Disney MGM Studios. This was changed recently to its current name as the deal with MGM had finished. When Epcot was built there were plans to put a Studios land in Future World. The idea was so popular that they decided to make a whole park. The parks icons are the The Sorcerer's Hat in the main hub of the park and the Earful Tower. A water tower like all movie studios. But interestingly the Water tower is fake. I like this park as it falls in line with how Disney made his name in films. The park was made to be a theme park and working studios. Now ... Read the complete review

In relation to the other Disney Parks MGM Studios is a bit different. It is themed - as it sounds - around the movies. The most imposing site in the Park is the giant Mickey Mouse's sorcerer's apprentice hat from Fantasia and it is around here that you will get to meet and greet the characters. When we were there it was mobbed but if you are prepared to wait in a line then you will get your chance to catch that special photo and autograph. We concentrated on Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck and were delighted to get both. The usual cheery Disney staff are great and will not let people queue jump or push their way in. Also in front of the hat is where ... Read the complete review
