“Hollywood, 1939. Amid the glitz and the glitter of a bustling, young movie town at the height of its golden age…” – Rod Serling, narration for The Hollywood Studios Tower of Terror.
Lights! Cameras! Glamour! Hollywood Studios celebrates the arts of film and entertainment. Saunter down swanky streets lined with palm trees, and buildings inspired by iconic architectural styles of the 30s. The mission revival architecture and art deco touches transport you to the golden age of Hollywood. But this Land continues to evolve, and showcases modern cinematic favorites Star Wars and Toy Story.
In addition to hosting some of Disney World’s most thrilling rides, like Rockin’ Rollercoaster and Tower of Terror, Hollywood Studios also features a daily lineup of shows, musicals, sing-a-longs, and even bursts of vaudeville on the streets. When planning a visit to this park, it’s important to check out the schedules (in either the Times Guide brochure available in the park, or using the My Disney Experience app) to plan out your visit and ensure you have time to make each showtime. For this reason, we find that 2 half days generally work best to give you more flexibility.
