After this trip, I have such a new love for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. After leaving Animal Kingdom, we took a Disney bus to Hollywood Studios. The last time we visited this park was in 2007, when it was still called MGM. We didn’t love it that last time, so we’ve been skipping it the past couple of years. Enough time has passed, and we decided to give it another try. And guess what? We loved it!
Hollywood Studios was slightly less crowded than Animal Kingdom, so it was a great choice. First stop was The Great Movie Ride, since that’s right by the entrance.
I forgot what a classic this ride is!
Next, we made our way to the Aerosmith roller coaster. I refuse to go on Tower of Terror (I still have nightmares about it from when I was a kid), so I agreed, instead, to go on this thrill ride.
At least we had a good view of Tower of Terror while waiting in line for the coaster!
Although terrifying, Aerosmith was super fun.
By the time we got out it was dark.
We had a little time before dinner, and the park was just about to close. We lucked out by being the last ones allowed onto the new Toy Story ride. Even though the park was closing, the line was still SO LONG.
I’m so glad we got to go on – it was amazing! I understand the long line. This ride is like being inside a Wii game – SO FUN! By the time we got out, we made our way to dinner at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater.
What a unique place this is! Although the food was “eh,” the atmosphere more than made up for it.
The Sci-Fi Dine In Theater is modeled after an old drive in, with the tables being cars! While we ate, we were shown clips of old sci-fi movies on a large screen. It was unbelievably cute!
After dinner, the park was practically empty, as it’s been closed now for over an hour. We had so much fun walking around as we made our way to the exit.
It was so eerie with barely anyone around, but it allowed for some amazing pictures!
What a fun evening, and what a new love for Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
