Traveling to: Disney Hollywood Studios

Welcome back everyone! Hope everyone is having a great week so far! It’s already Wednesday so that’s definitely something to celebrate! I’m going back to the rodeo tonight and I’m so excited! I will be going to the Chris Young concert and maybe I’ll grab another turkey leg… don’t judge!

So today’s post is going to be a recap/what to do when you visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios! I’m missing Disney more and more everyday and seriously can’t wait to go back! WARNING: I have a TON of pictures and really tried to narrow down as much as I could and this post will probably be lengthy! Without any further ado let’s get into the post!

If you have never been to Disney or haven’t visited the Disney Hollywood Studios park here is the biggest thing you can take from me.  The park is small and you don’t have to be there all day! (Unless you want to of course). I got there a bit later closer to the afternoon and was still able to do so much! I did everything on my bucket list but if yours is really long or you just have to see everything in the park then maybe going earlier than I did would be wise.

The day we visited Hollywood Studios we got up a bit later and decided to book a character experience breakfast buffet.  In my opinion it was so worth it! We had an amazing breakfast at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and got to take pictures with different characters! If this is something you are debating doing I would say do it a bit later when most of the breakfast crowd has gone and enjoy! (Note: Our reservation was at 10:15 AM and it took about 5 minutes to get seated.) After breakfast, we decided to tour the Grand Floridian because once you walk on the property you just realize it’s a dream! It was so beautiful inside and out and I’ve officially decided that next time I visit this just might be the place I need to stay! They have amazing amenities and so many things to do that I would recommend checking this place out.

At about 11:45 we decided it was time to start heading towards the park.  Once we were at the Grand Floridian they have buses that will take you to whichever park you are heading towards.  Since spring was pretty much knocking when I went to Disney the parks were decorated in the most beautiful spring flowers and had some of the greatest displays! Make sure to take some pictures when you first walk in.

FAST PASS/RIDES & SHOWS

As far as rides and fast passes.  There aren’t too many rides! We rode the Hollywood Tower of Terror, The Great Movie Ride, Toy Story Mania!, and Star Tours – The Adventures Continue.  Fast passes here are different than at Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom.  You get to do one major ride or show and the rest are smaller shows or rides.  (Don’t worry still just as good.)  We started the day with a fast pass to the Fantasmic show but once I realized we would still be able to get it later I canceled it and switched my picks.

As far as shows I was able to watch Voyage of The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast Live on Stage, Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away, and Fantasmic.  The shows are constantly playing throughout the day (except Fantansmic) so if you don’t have lunch for a while or don’t have fast pass for a couple hours check these out! They were all really great shows!  Also for Fantasmic it’s a great show! It brings a ton of Disney characters into the show and kind of follows Mickey’s Fantasia.  It has fireworks and lots of great songs! Must watch if you can get to it!

FOOD

So not going to lie here I didn’t eat lunch or dinner at the park because 1. We had a huge breakfast so we were both still full and 2. It was dinner or Fantasmic and I preferred to watch the show! We did have a ton of delicious treats like Mickey Shaped Ice Cream Bar & pretzel, lemonade, and a rice krispy!  I heard they have some great options for food though!

CHARACTERS

Meeting characters is one of my favorite parts of Disney! I had a bunch I wanted to cross off my bucket list and can say I did! I was able to meet Moana, Buzz, Woody, and Olaf! There were others scattered around the park but since I was going to be there another day I didn’t worry about the usual’s like Mickey etc.  Also if you are a huge Star Wars fan then they have meet & greets with characters or if you have little ones that watch Disney Junior they also have meet & greet with the characters of some popular shows! NOTE: If you are walking around the Pixar part of the park you might even see the green army toys from Toy Story!

OVERALL EXPERIENCE

I had an amazing time at Hollywood Studios! I did get a birthday button upon entering the park and I got a ton of happy birthdays and was lucky enough to get a free mug from one of the souvenir shops! (Seriously I wasn’t expecting anything except hearing happy birthday everywhere I went).  I can’t wait to book my next trip to Disney!

I know this blog post is super long but I hope I answered any questions for those who are going and those that aren’t I hope you had a great time with me recapping my adventures!

XOXO,

    Growing up, Hollywood Studios (or MGM as I still call it because I’m old haha) was one of my favorites! IT doesn’t have a ton of rides but it always fascinated me! Plus during the holidays they used to do the Osborne Family lights which basically turned an entire section of the park into a winter wonderland with fake snow coming off the “new york” apartments/street. It was so magical! Is tower of terror still open? I thought they closed it for their revamp?

      That sounds amazing! I really want to go to around the holiday time to see what special things they do! Also they are closing the one at Disneyland so luckily I was able to ride it!

    Love Disney! I was there at this time last year and it’s so much fun. I’ve actually never been to the Hollywood Studios park though- this post is making me think I should change that!
