We love Hollywood Studios, and now that Toy Story Land is open, this is more true than ever. Obviously, because we love it so much, we will always recommend allowing yourself enough time to see and do everything. However, we also realize this isn’t always possible. For those who can’t spend more than a day or so at Hollywood Studios, it can be hard to know which things to see and do. Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 must-dos in this awesome park. Do these things and you’ll leave knowing you experienced the best of the best!


1. Stroll Through Toy Story Land

This new area is bright, colorful, and just as playful as you’d imagine. The attention to detail in this land is incredible, and a slow stroll through the area can easily entertain you for quite some time. Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity—you never know what little surprises you may come across!

2. Grab a Ride on Slinky Dog Dash

While you’re in Toy Story Land, take the time to ride on Slinky Dog Dash. This new roller coaster is super fun and well themed. The line will be long, so make sure to snag a FastPass ahead of time or be prepared for an incredibly long queue. Either way, you’ll be glad you rode!

3. Hop on Toy Story Mania

Another must-do in Toy Story Land, the tried-and-true Toy Story Mania is an incredibly exciting, must-ride attraction that the whole family will love. The queue for the ride is super neat and features all kinds of toys and games you probably remember from your childhood. The ride itself is a fast-paced 3D arcade game that’s slightly competitive and tons of fun!


4. Grab a Meal at Woody’s Lunch Box

The newest eatery at Hollywood Studios is (again) very well themed and serves up a delicious menu full of nostalgic foods with a twist. This is currently one of the very best places to grab a quick breakfast or lunch in the park, and the novelty of the place really makes dining here a memorable experience.

5. Meet Star Wars Friends

Star Wars fans will absolutely adore Hollywood Studios. The new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is scheduled to open on August 29, 2019. In the meantime, there are still tons of opportunities to immerse yourself in the magic of these movies. One of the best ways to do this is through the amazing character meet-and-greets offered at Star Wars Launch Bay. You can get a hug from Chewbacca, chat with BB-8, or come face-to-face with Kylo Ren in this fabulous attraction. Be sure to check it out!

6. Fly Through Space on Star Tours: The Adventure Continues

Another amazing Star Wars attraction is Star Tours: The Adventure Continues. This exciting flight simulator takes you on a ride through space and allows you to see the many planets of Star Wars up close and personal. Best of all, because this ride changes each time you experience it, you can ride over and over again and still have a blast.

7. Experience Terrifying Drops on Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Tower of Terror may sound terrible, and the screams coming from it might make you shy away, but trust us when we say this attraction is one you must experience at least once. The effects in this ride are great fun, and the unpredictable dropping is a thrill that adrenaline junkies just can’t get enough of.

8. Get Your Thrills on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster

Another thrill ride that Disney fans adore, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is a super cool coaster with twists, turns, and loops galore. The ride is unusual in that it shoots cars from a standstill to top speed in a matter of seconds, and the energizing soundtrack that goes along with the ride adds even more excitement to the experience.

9. Indulge in a Cupcake

Hollywood Studios has some of the most amazing cupcakes in all of Disney World. For this reason, you simply must grab one when snack time rolls around. We highly recommend the Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch cupcake, which can be found at Trolley Car Cafe. The Star Wars cupcakes are also quite delicious and can be found at Backlot Express.

10. See “Fantasmic!”

Finally, you simply must end your day with a viewing of “Fantasmic!” This amazIng show uses water, projections, music, and fire to present a riveting dream sequence. Mickey and a whole host of other Disney friends are featured in this nighttime spectacular, meaning you can end your day on the perfect Disney note.
