Five on Friday

Last week I started a new series of the Top 5 rides/attractions that I want to do at each park, but haven't done yet. I started out at Animal Kingdom, since it's one of our top parks! If you missed out, you can catch up here.

This week we are going to move onto Hollywood Studios. This is probably one of our least favorite parks in general, although there is a lot of rides/attractions that we really enjoy here.

5. Muppet*Vision 3-D - I grew up watching the Muppets and loved them. Unfortunately, my son doesn't have a clue as to who they are! I would love to take him to this and show him what they are all about and I think he would really enjoy it!

4. Studio Backlot Tour - I think this would be so neat to see. I really enjoy looking behind the scenes to see how things work and are done so I would really enjoy this. I've heard this isn't a spectacular ride, but I think it's something that should be done at least once.

3. The American Idol Experience - We are American Idol fans. My husband and I have watched most of the seasons, although there were several in there that didn't catch our attention. We are from the same state/area as several of the contestants (Ruben Studdard, Taylor Hicks, Bo Bice) and it's always neat to see if anyone else from Alabama will make it! I think this would be a neat experience for our family.

2. The American Film Institute Showcase - I LOVE looking at props and costumes from movies and this is perfect for me. I think it's so neat to see the costumes that were in movies up close and personal to see all the touches on them! Plus, my son is currently obsessed with Villains/Bad guys so he would like that too!

1. Star Tours - with the reopening of Star Tours not too long ago, I have heard many a great things about this ride. I have never really gotten into Star Wars that much, nor seen the newest movies, but did enjoy the first ones as a teen. I think this would be a neat ride and can't wait to check it out!

What rides/attractions are you looking forward to trying out for the first time at Hollywood Studios?


  1. I'm not a huge Star Wars fan either, but I really enjoyed Star Tours! Hope you get to check it out on your next trip!

  2. Great list! We like the Backlot Tour - I don't care what anyone else says. LOL
