Disney's Hollywood Studios Guide

Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Florida

Experience the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood show business at Hollywood Studios, one of the parks at Walt Disney World Resort.

Hollywood Studios is zoned into 6 themed areas, which together give the feeling of being on a huge, bustling Hollywood movie set.

Each zone contains fantastic rides and attractions, backstage tours, live actions shows and much more! There’s something for everyone – and it’s all infused with that enchanting Disney magic!

Hollywood Studios Overview

Hollywood Studios is made up of 6 zones:

Hollywood Boulevard

This is the first place you’ll see when you enter the park, with Hollywood-style shops and facades lining the street. Hollywood Boulevard is also where you’ll find the park’s guest services.


Animation Courtyard

Where animation comes to life! Here you can see artwork from the very latest Disney movies, learn first-hand how Disney characters are developed for the big screen and meet Sorcerer Mickey in his own interactive area!

Animation Courtyard

Echo Lake

Hollywood Studios’ very own lagoon, which is surrounded by attractions, restaurants and more. One attraction not to be missed is Star Tours, a Star Wars-themed 3D simulator ride that takes you soaring through outer space - with a few bumps along the way!

Pixar Place

The Disney Pixar characters have escaped, and taken over a section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios! All around you are larger-than-life toys including the much-loved Toy Story gang at Toy Story Midway Mania.

Sunset Boulevard

Home to two of Hollywood Studios’ most popular and adrenaline-charged rides; the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith! This is also a great area to end your evening, with the fabulous fireworks and light show Fantasmic.

Streets of America

This is the “behind the scenes” part of Hollywood Studios, made to represent a real movie backlot. The streets here look a lot like those you might find in San Francisco, Chicago and New York.

Located just off the Streets of America is the dining area Commissary Lane.
