Location – Disney’s Hollywood Studios, it’s pretty hard to miss as its housed in a replica of Hollywood’s historic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre
What It’s Like – It’s a true “ride through the movies”, as you board a tram and travel through scenes from some of Hollywoods most beloved films – including Alien, The Wizard of Oz, and Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
Why I Love It – There are a LOT of things to love about this ride – first off, the line is never very long which is a huge plus, and the ride queue houses a display of movie costumes and memorabilia (which I highly recommend you stop and take a glance at!), and once you board the tram you have a live narrator to help you navigate through the streets and scenes where the audio animatronic figures and special effects really make you feel like you are following the yellow brick road with Dorothy! At the end of the ride, you get to watch a movie montage of famous moments in film, and it’s the perfect end to the perfect ride!
Take some time after you exit the ride to check out the handprints in front of the theater, it’s always fun to try and match your hands or feet to your favorite celebs!
The Great Movie Ride is a HUGE must do for me, I have loved it since I was a kid, and keep coming back again and again as an adult, it’s a true Disney classic!
