This Week in Disney Parks Photos: Celebrating Disney’s Hollywood Studios History

posted on April 19th, 2014 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


This week on the Disney Parks Blog, we started our countdown to the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios by taking a look back at one of the park’s opening day attractions – The Great Movie Ride.

I adore this attraction, which takes guests on a trip through movie history. Which scene featured in the attraction is your favorite?

If you’re excited for the park’s May 1 milestone, you also have to take a look at the sneak peek Steven Miller shared of the park’s special commemorative merchandise. Special pins, T-shirts and more will be available.

Wow I can’t believe its 25 anniversary. Will the ride be upgraded soon ? And When will Disney world get Walt Disney World Explorer app like Disneyland ?

I remember taking the backlot tour and riding through the neighborhood where the Golden Girls house, the house from Ernest Saves Christmas, and Herbie the Love Bug was located. I saw Bob Denver (Gilligan) at the meet the stars stage where the street now runs back to the Tower Of Terror area. The stars used to put their hand and foot prints in cement near The Great Movie Ride, and several daytime variety shows filmed out in front of the Great Movie Ride, Regis and Kathie Lee filmed in Sept.91 and we saw one of their guests Hulk Hogan :-). We loved going at Christmas to walk through the Osborne Family light display when it was in the Backlot neighborhood. We still go for the Osborne display but it had a more downhome feel about it with the houses versus the city landscape. We still slip and refer to it as the Disney / MGM Studios and our Son reminds us it’s the Disney Hollywood Studios :-)
