Step back in time to Hollywood's 1930s and 1940s heydays at Disney's Hollywood Studios, a sprawling theme park spanning 55 hectares (135 acres). Wander the studio's vast network of streets and entertainment areas--blending into one giant film set--for a behind-the-scenes look at the world of movies. Watch live shows or go on backstage tours of a working studio to learn to the secrets behind some of film industry's biggest hits. You can also take an elevator ride through 13 floors of fear, or speed up to 96 kph (60 mph) on the twisting roller coaster taking you through a recreation of darkened streets of Los Angeles. This park attracts more than 10 million visitors each year, so expect crowds. A visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Orlando holiday builder app to plot your vacation.

  • My son loves Star Wars and he can't get enough of Hollywood Studios, its always our first place to visit when we head to Disney. The shows and parades are amazing, a must for every one.  more »
  • Hollywood Studios is really all about the movies. There is less to do/see than the other parks. The standouts here are Aerosmith's Rockin Rollercoaster (my favorite ride in the parks), Tower of Terror...  more »
  • When I went, there was only about four rides operational, Toy Story Mania, Star Tours, Tower of Terror and Rock N Roll Coaster, each ride awesome However so many shows to do here that'll make the day ...  more »

  • Loved the atmosphere. Great music they had sing along parts that the whole restaurant started to sing along to .But the prices were crazy! It would have been cheaper at Rainforest cafe or the T-Rex Restaurant then there. Would I recommend going yes but be ready for the large bill at the end. My husband and I said we would go back as a family but maybe only for their 15 dollar milkshakes.!! The Mac and Cheese Burger was awesome but 20 bucks is a little much for one burger!! Also the appetizer you only got 5 little pieces and we went as a family of 5 but only 4 ate since the other one was only 9 months. They need to make the appetizers bigger.Not enough.They should have bread at the table or something. By the time our food came my husband was ready to eat his napkin. We waited at the table for more than an hour for our food. We did make reservations so we were in line for only five or ten minutes which was AMAZING!! Since we did hear the wait was 2+ hours just to get a table. There is lots to look at as well it is 4 floors we were only on the second. If you can i would try and get the third level seating to eat you can see the Jumbo screen better from up there. All in all I did like. It was just more expensive then I would have liked to pay for that kind of food and atmosphere. I expect to pay prices like that at high end restaurant with high end food.But then again it is Disney!!
  • We really enjoyed our visit to Hollywood Studios. There were many top-class entertainment shows, along with fun, modern rides. The park is well-laid out and easier to navigate than some of the other Disney parks. They were able to process a lot of people through lines, so the wait times were not as bad as at other parks, despite it being busy. Everything was very clean and the staff were very friendly. I would highly recommend and would visit again
  • I don't write reviews unless something was VERY good or VERY bad. In this case it is the latter. I went here with my family of 5 this past week just for us to waste time and A LOT of money. We thought this park would be great, as my mom has to be in a wheel chair and there is more shows than rides. We saw only two shows the whole day and did nothing else except fight our way through crowds and drink overly expensive drinks. I know it's the holidays but 2 hour waits for rides and not being able to get into more shows due to seating being taken up is ridiculous (suggestion: put a limit on the tickets you sell or offer discounted tickets). Also, the app wasn't working for our "complimentary" Fast passes... how convenient... NOT. On top of this, half the workers had no idea where anything was in the park and sometimes were borderline rude when being asked questions. I am a HUGE star wars fan and will not even return when they open new attractions. I am really disappointed in this park.
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios is AWESOME!!! Lots of fun rides, shows, and other attractions. My family and I loved all the cool Star Wars themed attractions. Stormtroopers randomly march through the park as The March of the Empire plays!! Tower of Terror is always a thrill. Hollywood Studios is also home to the Disney Jr. Meet and greets. My four year old loved this. The Toy Story ride is one of the funnest rides in the Disney universe. It’s a moving shooting gallery and you compete with other guests for the high score. The park also features the muppets show which is pretty funny. My little one also enjoyed the Little Mermaid sing along. The park is EXTREMELY clean and the cast members are incredibly friendly and helpful!!
  • Really enjoyed my visit in December 2017 to the Hollywood studio. The location was clean and easy to navigate. The staff were stupendous and always helpful. Our primary focus was the starwars exhibit and it was very cool! They had a performance outside and storm troopers walking around. Was a blast! The tower of terror was just as exciting as the first time I was on it over 15 years ago. The line wait times reached 1 hour early in the morning... If you can get a fast pass I'd recommend it.

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas.
