Disney's Hollywood Studios

On January 7, 2008 Disney’s Hollywood Studios opened their doors for the first time after shedding its MGM license. What will magic of Hollywood bring to Orlando, you ask?

Toy Story Mania arrives on set this summer. Have your 3-D glasses ready as you board your spinning craft to travel through carnival inspired virtual worlds. The ride seats up to eight passengers and records each individual’s score accumulated by firing toy cannons at virtual targets!

There’s more…

GO WILDCATS! The kids and songs of East High invite you to sing and dance along in the feature of “High school Musical 2:School’s Out!”

Look for the arrival of some new friends at Playhouse Disney this February! Starring Little Einsteins, Mickey Mouse Playhouse, and Handy Manny to name a few!

Be a part of the “Block Party Bash” deemed one of the most interactive parades in Disney history. With retro tunes, high-flying acrobatics, and trampolines there are bound to be a few surprises! Joining in the fun is more than 20 partying Disney-Pixar Film Pals to include the Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Toy Story 2, Bug’s life, and much more!

The hope is the new attractions will inspire a new view of the park as more than just a thrill seekers indulgence. But, while there is still much chatter and speculation about the future of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I believe that this will be the year that the park makes it’s come back.

I didn't know the park had changed it's name. I have the FL fun pass ticket for 3 days can we still use it at the new Hollywood Studios? or does it require new tickets?

Yes, you can! This special Florida residents ticket provides admission to one of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks per day.
