Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney Hollywood Studios main entrance Orlando

April 2012: Just 10 years ago, tourists wrestled with the question: “Should I visit Universal Studios or Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM not so long ago) since there’s no need to see two film studios in a single vacation?” Today the question is moot.
