Hollywood Studios Must-Do’s

Hollywood Studios is my second favorite park next to the Magic Kingdom.  Not only is the fireworks show (Fantasmic) my favorite, but I also love all the shows the park has to offer. I’m pretty sure Chris could leave me at the park and I’d be perfectly content to wander around and watch Voyage of the Little Mermaid all day.

  1. We are neighbors to Disney World (live in Orlando) and we just recently visited Hollywood Studios. The Disney Junior Live Show is pretty awesome for the my Boys. They got to see some of their favorite shows/characters in action. They were in amazement!
