Lights, camera... ACTION! One of the four major theme parks at Florida Orlando Disney World, is Disney's Hollywood Studios®. Drawing inspiration from the Hollywood heyday of the 1930s and ‘40s, the glitz and glamour of yesteryear is reflected in the thrilling attractions, backstage tours and special events that only happen here.
Six main areas make up the theme park, taking you from Hollywood to Sunset Boulevard, Pixar to old-fashioned animation, Star Wars to the Streets of America. Guests can take a tour through Tinseltown in the 'Rock 'n' Roller Coaster', an indoor roller coaster ride in the dark with three inversions and a high-speed launch, which stars rock band Aerosmith.
Guests can also enjoy the 25-minute Disney's Hollywood Studios Backlot tram tour. This tour takes guests behind the scenes of movie production, as well as a closer look at costumes, vehicles, and props from Hollywood films. Real life celebrities also often appear at Disney's Hollywood Studios to sign auto-graphs, pose for photographs, and take part in interview sessions with park guests. Stars such as Lauren Bacall, Alan Alda, Robin Williams, Samuel L. Jackson, Charlton Heston, Bette Midler, Sylvester Stallone, and Tom Cruise have all put their prints in the cement outside the full size recreation of the Chinese Theatre.
The Star Tours theme park also gives guests the opportunity to take a crazy galactic journey to the Moon of Endor. This Star Wars-inspired attraction com-bines motion picture and flight-simulator technology to send the audience on an amazing spacecraft ride.
Look out for displays of the Oscars that have been awarded to many of the classic Disney films, as well as recent films too. There’s also offers a variety of shops and restaurants, which continue the Tinseltown theme.
