USA ‘09 – DAY 3 – DISNEY HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS

Disney Hollywood Studios Water TowerThe last time we came here the park was called Disney MGM Studios so there has been a rebranding since then. However, all the attractions remain the same and it is still our favourite park. Probably because it’s the park with the most adult attractions. Including Indiana Jones, the Star Wars ride Star Tours, the backlot tour and Lights, Motors, Action!

Today we were given some “surprise” fast passes for Lights, Motors, Action! so we built our day around that. Fast passes are great as they allow you to skip the line and go straight to the front. I know it is meant to be British to queue but I dislike it – particularly when I am on holiday.

So, first up we went on the Great Movie Ride which takes you through animatronics scenes from famous movies such as the Wizard of Oz and Alien. Then we did the Backlot Tour which takes a look at what goes on behind the scenes on films. Then the Star Wars themed Star Tours ride which is basically a giant simulator but great fun.

Lights, Motors, Action! is, as the name suggests, a car stunt show looking at how car scenes are done in the movies and, as you can see from the video below, it is very spectacular.
