Question My Hollywood Studios...

OK this the 3rd little exercise I want MANY Disdads to participate in.
(If you answered on our other forum...no need to answer here)



What we are looking for from each of you give several (at least 10, no more than 20) "Attractions" regarding Hollywood Studios. By "Attractions" I mean, Rides, Shows, Resturants, Experience, etc...that when someone ask you... "Hey, (name)...what is it that you like so much about the Studios?"

I'm not looking for you to rank these...just what you think of when you think Hollywood Studios. This is "My Hollywood Studios."

I encourage you to make your list without influence from others posts...make your list first then read the others and edit your post later if needed...but I think the first gut impression will probably be best. Cause this is Your Studios...not Don's.

My least favorite park so I can only do 6

Sorcerer's Hat
Toy Story Mania
Lights, Motors, Action
Muppet Vision 3D
Backlot Tour
Starring Rolls Cafe

50's Prime Time is on the list for the next visit but never been there. This is a half-day park for me really. The LMA stunt show and Muppet Vision are the only must do.

The Fanatic's Studios

This is "THE Disney Fanatic's" Hollywood Studios...

Fantasmic, Star Tours and watching my son fight Darth Vader during the Jedi Training, Crab Cakes at The Brown Derby Restaurant , Tower of Terror, Rock N Roll Rollercoaster, One Man's Dream, Muppet Vision 3-D, Star Tours again, and the Osborne Family Christmas Lights! I love this park!

Here's mine:

Tower of Terror
Rockin' Rollercoaster
Star Tours
Muppets 3-D
Beauty and the Beast
Toy Story Mania (this may be my new favorite attraction in all of WDW)
The fact that you can get a 22 oz domestic beer for only $5 something amazed me. I would've thought it'd been more like $8. And they knew how to pour a nice full beer!

I can't wat to go back and read everyone elses to see which obvious things I missed.

For me HS is fun because it has a couple of the more adventurous rides.

1. Osborne Family lights. (yeah its seasonal)
2. Rock and Roller Coaster
3. Toy Story Midway Mania
4. Tower of Terror
5. Backlot Tour
6. The animation class (I can't remember the real name)
7. Muppets 3d
8. Backlot Express (food isn't that great but the scenery and story behind the eatery are)
9. Starring Rolls (great place to use a snack credit in the morning)
10. Star Tours 2

From top to bottom….

The Rock-n-Roll Roller coaster
Indiana Jones
Star Tours
Muppet-vision 3D
Osborn Lights (in season obviously)
Lights Motors Action
One Man’s Dream
Toy Story Mania (but only if the line is manageable)
50's Prime Time Cafe
The Great Movie Ride (because it’s a tradition)
Cookies in the Writer’s Stop
Staring Rolls
Cubano Sandwiches at the Commissary (these may be gone now)
Fantasmic

Seceding in NOT seeing or hearing any of the “High School Musical” type shows

And…

Voyage of the Little Mermaid
(because it’s usually empty, the seats are good, and I can rest my weary feet for a bit)
