Welcome to Hollywood (Studios, that is)


Walt Disney statue at Hollywood Studios

We spent the entire 6th day of our Disney trip at Hollywood Studios.  Although I did have the park hopper passes, I didn't use them every day of the trip.  Some of our favorite things are at this park, so it was easy to spend the entire day there.

Walt Disney's private plane

Since my in-laws were along, we decided to spend the morning doing more chilled things.  They aren't thrilled with roller coasters.  We tried that on the last trip and have a great picture of my father-in-law laying down on a bench by space mountain.  ;)   So we started with the back lot tour.  That is where we saw this old private plane that belonged to Walt Disney.

The Hollywood Tower of Terror ride at Hollywood Studios

We couldn't keep the kids away from their favorite ride for long though.  Tower of Terror has some great details on the building if you pay attention.  While the kids rode this over and over, I had to stop after a few times.  My stomach can only take so much!  It rained A LOT this day and I was glad I had packed the ponchos.  Check out my packing post for what else you need to take to Disney.   My daughter got this great shot of me as the "hunchback of Disney World".  

Me with my poncho over my backpack...lol

I look like that because I have a backpack on under the poncho.  Yikes!

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney Hollywood Studios

My favorite ride at ALL the parks is Rock 'n' Roller Coaster!  I do ride this one as many times as my brain will allow.  Who else loves it?

Disney style treats

Time for treats!  I didn't get one of these, but I sure did think they were cute.  Read this post to see what I got. (and there is a video of how they made these)

Beauty and the Beast show at Disney's Hollywood Studios

With treats in hand, we sat down to watch the Beauty and the Beast show.  I had an encounter with a very rude lady while I was waiting for the kids to show up.  I usually try not to get bothered by people like that, but this time I failed.  Luckily the show took my mind off of her negativity and brought me back to the Happy Travel Bug that I am! ;)   Love the fact that shows like this are just part of the experience at Disney...no extra prices or hidden fees. 

Dinner at the 50's Prime Time Cafe

Next up, dinner!  We had reservations at the 50's Prime Time Cafe.  I wrote all about the dinner HERE.

Toy Story Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios

My favorite non-coaster ride is Toy Story Mania.  We are VERY competitive in our family so it is fun to compete for the best score.  I am the reigning champion!  I'd take on this guy below any day! ;)

Green Army Man at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Thankfully the rain stopped in the evening and I was able to head over to Fantasmic and reserve seats for the family.  It is always a good idea to send someone there early.

What a great ending to a great day at Hollywood Studios!  I am trying to get good video of my travels now for you guys.  I know some people enjoy that over the pictures.  If that is you, please head over to my YouTube channel (TheHappyTravelBug) and subscribe for all my videos.  Either way, here is my video of Day 6 at Disney.

  1. Glad to see you had a fantastic time at Hollywood Studios. We love this park too and California Adventure here reminds me a lot of it including some of the rides like Tower of Terror and the Toy Story Mania. I'm not a big rollercoaster fan so kudos to you for being able to ride one repeatedly. Love those treats!

    1. I've never been to Disneyland, but I hope to one day. I do love the coasters, but they aren't as easy on me as they used to be. ;)
