Hollywood Studios Bucket List for Beginners

Need a Hollywood Studios Bucket List to make sure you don’t miss anything? There are so many changes at Hollywood Studios right now that it’s important to take stock of where you’ve been so you can figure out where you need to go! We’ve heard about the 11 acres set aside for Toy Story Land and with Star Wars Land in full construction mode, we’re adamant about making sure we get out fill of the stuff that’s still open.

Here is our list of things for any of you out there who are taking that once in a lifetime trip to Walt Disney World or aren’t planning to return annually. These are our best sure bets!

Until Star Wars arrives, Hollywood Studios was considered a half day park, in that you didn’t really need too much time there because there really wasn’t anything that great. Times have changed. Hollywood Studios is upping the ante with just about everything. The introduction of Storm Trooper Parades, a Star Wars Fireworks Show and a new Fantasmic has Hollywood Studios back on the full-day-needed list. You’re also going to want to stop over and get a last glance at some of the things that may be replaced in the near future, like The Great Movie Ride. Whatever your goals for this park. Check out our list and see if we missed anything. This is one that will definitely be growing in the next couple of years.
