Spotlight On: The Great Movie Ride


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!)

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!
