T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 29 Years Of Movies And Fun!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been taking guest on a journey through the movies for over 29 years – in fact, on May 1st the Park celebrated it’s 29th anniversary!

“The World you have entered was created by The Walt Disney Company and is dedicated to Hollywood—not a place on a map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream and wonder and imagine, a place where illusion and reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was—and always will be.” – Michael Eisner said this during his speech on the day the park opened – back then it was called “Disney’s MGM Studios” – and some of us old timers (like myself will probably always call it that)

In honor of the Park celebrating 29 years, here’s a look back on some of my favorite Hollywood Studios moments:

Here’s to many, many more memories – especially as Hollywood Studios undergoes some MAJOR construction to bring some awesome new things this year and next – like Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land

Happy Anniversary To WDW’s Hollywood Studios!

On May 1 1989, “MGM Studios” Theme Park opened it’s doors at Walt Disney World. Since then, they have been captivating audiences with all of their Hollywood-themed stunts, shows, rides, and attractions

Have you ever been to MGM, or Hollywood Studios as it is now called?

If not, here are some of my personal faves that everyone should try at least once while visiting Hollywood Studios:

Must See/Do at Hollywood Studios:

-Muppet Vision 3D – a fun 3D movie starring your favorite Muppet characters!

-Star Tours – a virtual trip through the Star Wars Movies!

-Rock’N Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith – it goes upside down, and blasts awesome Aerosmith tunes during the ride, what could be better?!

-The Great Movie Ride – a tram tour through some of movies greatest moments

-The Tower of Terror – step onto a sketchy looking elevator for a heart-dropping trip through the Twilight Zone

 

Happy 23 year Anniversary to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and here is to many, MANY more amazing years of entertainment and fun!
