Disney has been at the heart of great American movie making from the dawn of the motion picture industry, so it’s natural they’ve created have a whole theme park dedicated just to movies, television, and music.
Getting to Disney's Hollywood Studios®
All Disney Resort hotel guests can take buses straight to the front gate. Some Epcot® area Disney hotels like the Yacht and Beach Club Resort hotels and the BoardWalk Resort hotels also offer ferry transport. If you have a Park Hopper pass, you can get from Epcot® to Hollywood Studios via ferry from the International Gateway Plaza near France.
Our Tips for Visiting Hollywood Studios
Because this park actually began its existence as a working movie and television studio, its layout is less structured and more difficult to navigate than other Disney parks. We strongly recommend you pick up a park map or download a Walt Disney World® smartphone app—there are many to choose from!
When you arrive (or even before), grab the daily schedule for the big shows like the Indiana Stunt Spectacular or the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show. Plan your visit around these spectacles, so you know when to head over for a show and can fill the rest of the day with the rides that operate continuously. Knowing where everything is and when shows begin seating is especially important at this park.
It should be noted that Hollywood Studios is going through a major transformation. In the coming years the area above Pixar Place and currently where the Animation Courtyard is eventually become Toy Story Land. A whole land featuring Pixar themed attractions. And the area currently above Star Tours and eventually taking over the car stunt show area will become a land completely given over to Star Wars!
