Disney's Hollywood Studios

All the magic of the movies can be found at Disney's Hollywood Studios, where visitors can experience film-themed rides, spectaculars, great shows and parades.

There is plenty here for all the family to enjoy, young and old alike. The big rides are fast and furious, and the fastpass booking system ensures waiting times for the most popular attractions are minimal, leaving plenty of time to enjoy everything else in the park. Visitors can go behind the scenes of favourite films, see how special effects are created, and enjoy the many themed shows.

To keep up energy levels, there are plenty of food stops along the way, from full table service to quick bites. For really good food Disney's Hollywood Studios has probably one of the better restaurants in the theme parks, The Hollywood Brown Derby, where you can enjoy American cuisine for lunch or dinner.

All the family will want to watch the motorcade, with many of showbusiness's most beloved characters, as well as all their favourite shows, so check out the Times Guide for the park schedules to make sure you don't miss anything.
