Go Visit Mickey and Goofy
One park that seems to be in the shadow of the much better known Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom is Hollywood Studios. Although this park is smaller in comparison it really does pack a lot in.
As you arrive the first thing you see is a giant figure of Mickey Mouse from the Fantasmic show. When you enter the park you have a selection of rides to go to, so starting off with the Tower Of Terror, this is a well established ride that takes you back to the twilight zone, you enter a lift in the creepy hotel and sit down not knowing what to expect, but then just as you settle down you are plummeted up and then down 15 floors until you come to a shuddering halt. This one is not for the faint hearted so you have been warned.
Next we move onto the Rock and Roller Coaster. This is one of my favorite rides, you walk through a recording studio and meet the rock band Aerosmith in session. Steve Tyler the front man speaks to you and tells you to get onto the ride as they are getting into a limousine. Once you get onto the coaster you are then told to be prepared, immediately after this you are catapulted into darkness at 65mph and took on a journey of twists and turns and loops through aero smith’s world. This ride is worth the admission fee alone.
Hollywood Studios isn’t just about rides though, it’s also about shows and you have a huge selection to choose from. Lights Motors Action extreme stunt show takes you to the movies with a jaw dropping spectacle of stunts straight from Hollywood, lots of car chases and motorcycle stunts that really are very exciting and dangerous, well worth a visit. Here is a list of other recommended shows to see. Fantasmic, Beauty and the beast, Playhouse Disney and Voyage of the little mermaid.
There are other attractions like Indiana Jones. I actually thought this show was one of the best ones, I am probably biased because I grew up with the Indiana Jones Films with Harrisn Ford. Star Wars the ride is quite cool, you enter the Millenium Falcon and the ride simulates the ship in the movie, a very good ride to experience. Honey I shrunk the kids is like the film where you are taken into a theatre and relive the momnets when the kids are shrunk, but just emember, your in for a surprise.
Overall Hollywood Studios is a really exciting and great park to visit and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
