If you have been to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, then you have probably seen The Great Movie Ride – it is housed in a replica of the famous Hollywood Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, complete with concrete handprints of famous actors out front – including Minnie Mouse, Judy Garland, and Michael Jackson (and many more!). I like to spend time out front seeing whose hands are the same size as mine (my husband and Hulk Hogan have the same size hands which I found amusing!)
The ride itself is a tram that glides through some of Hollywood’s most famous movie scenes – including The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Alien, Indiana Jones, and Tarzan (to name just a few!). A Cast Member narrates and navigates your journey through the movies, and this really is a great ride – perfect for those of all ages – I loved it when I was a kid, and I think I love it even more now, it has stood the test of time and gotten better with age (and some updates, of course!)
I strongly recommend you take a ride into the movies on The Great Movie Ride the next time you find yourselves at Walt Disney World!
Oh, and as an added incentive – the wait for this is usually short, and it’s indoors which means air conditioning (heavenly on those hot Florida days!)
