The Great Movie Ride, which transports Disney’s Hollywood Studios guests through film history, has been updated with some new interior and exterior enhancements thanks to a new relationship with Turner Classic Movies.
Guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios can now enjoy an all-new photo opportunity that allows them to walk the red carpet and “cement” their handprints outside our Chinese Theatre. (Other enhancements inside include new digital movie posters in the queue (watch carefully to see the classic poster images move). A few new clips will be added into the attraction’s finale montage later this summer.
Guests will also hear new audio components during the tour from Robert Osbourne, actor and Turner Classic Movies film historian. The enhanced narration will assist attraction tour guides in leading guests from famous scene to famous scene, layering in more fun movie facts.
By the way, if you’re a huge fan of Disney films, you’ll want to check out “Treasures from the Disney Vault,” which airs on Turner Classic Movies July 2.
Hi, I participated in the Great Movie Ride photo shoot for the blog and WDW News. The guy who took the pictures told us to look for the photos on the blog and WDW News. I was wondering if there was going to be a gallery or just this one photo?
This is great! Do you know if there are PhotoPass photographers there to capture the moment?
James’ wife here – I have been thrilled since the get go with this collaboration with TCM! I am a huge fan of TCM and enjoy Robert Osbourn with any of his commentaries esp. The Essentials.
We love The Great Movie Ride and think this new added dimension will enhance the experience even greater! Can’t wait for next years annual vacation – I want it NOW!
Kudos to the Imagnieers in developing this ride to even higher plateaus, these old movies bring history back to life and from some of the movies I have watched on Turner, I can see where Walt Disney got some of his ideas and was able to bring them to life for all of us to enjoy!
A double….<3 WDW & <3 TCM!
