Special Vacation Tip
Hollywood Studios is a smaller theme park in terms of rides and shows as compared to the other Disney World theme parks; however, Hollywood Studios does offer many parades all throughout the day. You might want to add the park hopper options to your Disney World tickets if you are planning on visiting this park. This will allow you to visit Hollywood Studios to see the parades then hop over to another park after the parade is over. The park hoppers typically add $50 to the price of your Disney World tickets.
Disney World Hollywood Studios does not have nearly the dining options offered at Magic Kingdom or EPCOT, but a good idea is to check out what kind of food you desire. Most guests who spend the day at Hollywood Studios leave before dinner and save themselves considerable money using other meal options. If you so decide to eat dinner at the park, might we recommend eating at 50’s Prime Time Café. This restaurant has been featured on the Food Network as one of the best places to eat comfort food.
Disney Hollywood Studios has a lot of unique history which is always fun to read.
