Our Long Day at Hollywood Studios Part 3

Florida Guide > Hollywood Studios

All the family enjoyed watching the special effects and explosions on the film set and were chattering happily about the battle scenes as we exited the set and set off towards the tram on which we were to continue our tour. On the way to this we passed through a prop warehouse which had some fascinating props in it. We slowed down here to be able to browse and it does not matter if you do not keep up with your entire group because as long as your family stay together this show is continuous.

The open sided trams which probably seat about 200 run continuously and although the queues for these can seem quite long it usually only takes about 10 minutes at quieter times before it is your turn to board. However a good tip is try to avoid sitting on the left hand side as you may get very wet, my Father sat there and paid the price!

The drivers of these trams keep you well informed of all the exhibits as they drive around, I always get a real Disney feel when I see the Mickey’s Ears at the top of long poles. My Father loves to see all the planes that have been used in various films, the driver usually explains about these as we travel around.

My Mother and I love the section where you go through and see the many costumes that have been used in various films, the tram tends to slow down here but for us it could go even slower as we try to identify them and explain to the girls what films they were worn in.

The tram then takes us around the back of Lights Camera Action and every time we have been on the tram the stunt guys are practicing with horrific noises and screeching of brakes from both the cars and bikes.

Then onto a section where you will see the Beverly Hills sign and several of the famous cars used in various films. The girls were fascinated to see Herbie the Love Bug. Since our return home Hollywood Studios have replaced Herbie in the Lights Motor Action show with another well loved character from Cars 2 Lighting McQueen, the girls have now put this show on our Must Do list for next time!

We find it fascinating looking at all the props and it gives you such a good insight into how films are made, then we headed off to Catastrophe Canyon I suppose the name really tells you what to expect!
