Hidden attractions Disney’s Hollywood Studios

When you’re planning your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort, there is understandably a lot of things to plan out – how to get there, where to stay, what to do once you get there. And, if your itinerary takes you through the Walt Disney World theme parks, your planning should first include a stop right here at OrlandoFunTickets.com. We are your No. 1 online source for discounted Disney tickets, and we can make your stay in Central Florida easy – and not to mention cheaper – if you purchase all of your tickets here with us before your vacation begins. 

When plotting your day at the Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there are two attractions that immediately pop into everyone’s minds – the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith. These two are located beside each other at the end of Sunset Boulevard, and understandably, have the longest wait times and are in the most congested area of the theme park. But, while you don’t want to miss the 13-story drop at the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or the zero-to-sixty-in-under-two-seconds launch of the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, there are other attractions that we suggest you take in at this park. They might be easy to miss, but they’re worth the trip, we promise! 

The Great Movie Ride used to be the staple, the centerpiece, of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, before Sorcerer Mickey’s hat was built just inside the park’s main entrance. Now, the once-famed attraction is literally lost in the background, and is easy to pass right by without possibly knowing it was even there. But, this 22-minute tour is still a classic attraction at the park, and anyone wanting to take a journey back into time through scenes of classic and timeless movies will still enjoy the pageantry of this attraction. 

Another classic attraction based off of one of the most popular Disney movies of all time is also one of our hidden gems. The Voyage of the Little Mermaid is a short production that condenses scenes from the film and plays them out with actors, puppets and special effects. The music is great, and the story never gets old… so make sure to check this one out sometime during your day, especially if you have children with you!  

Since Disney’s Hollywood Studios is all about Hollywood and a salute to the world of showbiz, it only makes sense that a lot of the attractions are dealing with behind-the-scenes looks at movies, or exhibits that feature actual props and costumes from TV and the movies. And, one of the best up-close and personal looks at a Hollywood blockbuster is located here as well, at the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! Here, guests can learn about what it takes to create all the amazing stunts that make the movies so entertaining. 

And finally, our last can’t-miss for Disney buffs is Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream. This attraction opened during Walt’s 100th birthday celebration, and this self-paced walking tour gives tribute to the man who started Walt Disney World with an extensive amount of memorabilia and historic information. While this, and the other attractions listed above, may not have the same effect on you as the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, it will give you a greater sense of what this park is truly all about and the vision that Disney’s Hollywood Studios was built around.
