Hollywood Studios does not have an actual working Backlot Studio, there used to be one here but Disney shut it down years ago. What’s left to see on this tour is a huge water effects tank, a dusty prop room, a disaster set, and a peek into theme park costume changing area.
Highlights of the Backlot Tour:
The water effects tank demostrates how fire bursts and water cannons can simulate a torpedo and bombing attack. There is an opportunity to participate, if you would like you may volunteer to get splashed on a PT boat. If you would like to volunteer just tell the cast member as the entrance to the attraction.
The Catastrophe Canyon is special effects area which simulates an earthquake, fire, and flood.
The Backlot Tour usually takes about thirty-five-minute to the Disney-Hollywood Studios production facilities.
There is no height requirement for this ride.
When to Go
Visit before 12:00 p.m and after 3:30 p.m to avoid the longest lines. There is not a fastpass available for this attraction.
- There are many props on display in the queue and in the prop house. Sharp eyed Disney fans will notice a lot of props from the old World of Motion attraction at Epcot.
