With the introduction of new Star Wars movies, Disney is working hard to update Hollywood Studios with it’s own Star Wars themed land. This is obvisouly going to be a giant undertaking and will take a good amount of time. In the meantime, Disney needed to add something Star Wars related to it’s park. Not too mention that Hollywood Studios has been looking a little sparse in the attraction department lately. Queue Star Wars Launch Bay!

Fun at Hollywood Studios

DSC04792
On our trip to Hollywood Studios we were excited and yet a little bit sad. This was the last time we were going to be able to see the hat, the long iconic centerpiece for the park. While it was sad to say goodbye to the hat, we had a lot of fun checking out what else the park has to offer. (At this point in time the hat is now a thing of the past as it is being removed if not completely gone.)


We took our time wandering through the park. Our first stops were at the Tower of Terror and Aerosmith’s Rock’N Roller coaster. Both rides are packed with thrilling experiences. The Tower of Terror is not our favorite ride as it essentially consists of an elevator ride going into free fall. It’s not our favorite ride but it certainly is a way to wake yourself up for an early morning start.
The Rock’N Roller Coaster is more of our speed. It is a high-speed roller coaster in the dark. It basically takes you behind the scenes with Aerosmith who invite you to their show which is starts in a few minutes. You hop in their stretch limo and race your way through town to get to their show on time. The scenery is unique because the ride is indoors. Everything is black and as your stretch limo passes through the city it glows in bright neon lights. This is one of our favorite rides in all of Disney World.


One of our next stops was Star Tours-The Adventure Continues. Dave is a huge Star Wars fan so it was imperative that we saw this ride. It had been refurbished since our last visit so it was nice to see all the upgrades Disney had made. We are so thrilled to know that Disney is going to be making this area in Hollywood Studios even larger and that they intend to incorporate more Star Wars themeing throughout the entire resort.


Overall our experience at Hollywood Studios was awesome! We got to see everything we wanted and we are excited to see the changes that Disney has in store for us on our next visit.
