Disney's Animal
Kingdom

























 

Disney's Hollywood Studios opened on May 1, 1989 as Disney-MGM Studios. The park actually originated from a planned pavilion for Epcot that revolved around a Great Movie Ride. When some higher ups heard of these plans, they decided that this shouldn't be an individual pavilion, but an entire new theme park that revolved around a working Disney studio.

Over the years the park has been the location of several different film shoots, including Newsies and the exteriors of the Golden Girls houses, along with being the home of where three Disney animated films were completely done (Mulan, Brother Bear, and Lilo and Stitch).

Disney-MGM Studios would eventually change it's name to Disney's Hollywood Studios on January 7, 2008.

The current attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios are The Great Movie Ride, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Rockin' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage, Fantasmic!, Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage, The Magic of Disney Animation, The Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Walt Disney: One Man's Dream, Toy Story Midway Mania, The Studio Backlot Tour, Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Muppet Vision 3-D, Star Tours, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, Sounds Dangerous Starring Drew Carey, and the American Idol Experience.


Fun Facts: Even though the park has officially changed it's name to Disney's Hollywood Studios, you can still find different plaques and signs throughout the park stating Disney-MGM Studios. Look at the dedication plaque at the end of Hollywood Boulevard and near the Muppet Shop for some great examples!

Touring Tips: Make sure you grab a Fastpass for Toy Story Midway Mania as soon as possible! It is one of the most popular attractions in Walt Disney World and the Fastpasses run out quickly!
