Let’s All Go to Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World!
Okay, park fans! We’ve already used our Park Hopper passes to spend the day at EPCOT and Magic Kingdom. Today, let’s pull out our Magic Bands and head over to the park with the coolest new stuff. Let’s all go to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Starting the Day Right!
As always, the first thing that we should do is go with the herd! We’ll stroll down Hollywood Boulevard and follow our line of sight to the natural stopping point. That’s Chinese Theatre. Let’s take a spin on the ride there!
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Wait a minute. Didn’t some other ride go here? Oh, we’re not leaving yet, my friends. We’re standing right here and taking a trip on The Great Movie Ride!
The Great Movie Ride
That ride was my happy place. Please bring it back somewhere, Disney! Anyway, we still have plenty of things to do at Hollywood Studios. In fact, there’s more entertainment available now than ever before!
Let’s take a quick tour of Sunset Boulevard’s greatest hits. We will start with the latest attraction, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy.

Wasn’t that shiny? Next, let’s do everyone’s favorite thrill ride double-bill! We will start with Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.

Then, we’ll skip over to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

Whew, I’m not sure my heart could take much more of that. Before we leave, I would like to do one more thing, though. Let’s catch a show!
Beauty & the Beast LIVE on Stage!
I love Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage, don’t you? Really, all the shows at Hollywood Studios are phenomenal. My favorite is Voyage of The Little Mermaid:

For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration is growing on me, though.

Lunch and Afternoon Fun!
Okay, that’s enough shows for now. We’re ready to try all the new stuff. That’s right. If you haven’t visited Hollywood Studios since the summer of 2018, much has changed!
Let’s start with a stop at Toy Story Land. We can try a Disney classic, Toy Story Mania!, before we do the new stuff.

Next, we will hop on one of the most ingenious roller coasters ever designed, Slinky Dog Dash.

Wasn’t that amazing? We still have one ride on our checklist, but let’s grab a bite to eat first. I am all about the Potato Barrels at Woody’s Lunch Box. The Box Tarts are delectable, too.
While we wait for our stomachs to settle, let’s…oh wait, none of this is real, so we don’t have to stall! We can jump on Alien Swirling Saucers and slam into one another ad nauseam…only without the nausea!
Alien Swirling Saucers
Okay, that version was terrific, but the holiday overlay is even better!
To Star Wars Land!
Okay, we’ve had our fun, but it’s time to get serious about Hollywood Studios. The star attraction is undeniably the park’s newest themed land. There’s so much to see and do at Galaxy’s Edge that we should take it all in.
Here was the opening day experience from our friends, Josh and Jenna, at ResortTV1.
Rise of the Resistance
If you’d rather skip the crowds, we can skip to the rides! Here’s Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run:

While that attraction is spectacular, it’s no longer the buzz ride on Batuu. That honor belongs to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance:
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
Wasn’t that AMAZING??? Disney has truly outdone itself here. Since nothing could compete with that, let’s take a break. We will head over to an intergalactic bar to hang out for a while.
The food and drinks are definitely weird here, aren’t they? The DJ is great, though! Still, I think I’d like to wander around Black Spire Outpost and find some more stuff. Hey, is that a place where we can build droids? Oh, we’re totally doing that!
Hmm, I just grabbed some Kat Saka’s Kettle mix. While I was there, a member of The Resistance hinted that I could get a distinctive lightsaber, one that uses rare artifacts for parts! Let’s sneak over there and get one. Don’t let the First Order catch us, though!
Ho ho ho. Now I have a lightsaber!
Before we leave, we should grab some milk, though.
The End of the Evening
Okay, we’re starting to run a bit late for dinner. And there’s only one acceptable choice for dinner at Hollywood Studios. We’re totally going to Sci-Fi Dine-In!
Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater
This place is my favorite restaurant on the planet, no joke! I’m not the only one, either. This person has recorded the full show that plays several times a day at Sci-Fi Dine-In!
Let’s catch another show before we do anything else. I want to watch stunt actors do crazy stuff! So, it’s off to Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular that we go!
Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular
Yes, I know that the nighttime show is almost here. We’ve got time to sneak in one more ride, though. Let’s hit the big one that we haven’t done yet. We’re all going to Star Tours – The Adventures Continue!
Star Tours – The Adventures Continue
Okay, we’ve had a full day, but we want to end on the perfect note, right? It’s Fantasmic! time, my friends!
I don’t know about you, but I barely even recognize the Hollywood Studios of today vs. the one a few years ago. The additions are stunning!
