Ride Guide: Hollywood Studios

Disney Toy Store Mania vehicles 3-D glasses guns

In Toy Story Mania, carts spin and 3-D glassed riders compete for high score

January 2012: Hollywood Studios rides can be enjoyed by walking in a circle with a small amount of backtracking. The order of attractions here assumes you walk straight down Hollywood Boulevard after entering the park, ride the Great Movie Ride (behind the big Mickey sorcerer’s hat), and then turn left to tour counter-clockwise.

For a complete description of rides, go to the Ride Describe: Hollywood Studios, but note that surprises along the way will be revealed ahead of time in a Ride Describe.  If you like to discover ride surprises, use only this Ride Guide.
