Exploring the Shows: Hollywood Studios

In a new series, today I’m taking a look at all of the different shows throughout the Walt Disney World Parks.  In today’s episode, I’m going to take a look at the shows that you can find over at the Hollywood Studios.


For our purposes, a show is something on screen or on stage, that you watch as you would watch a movie or play.

At Hollywood Studios, with it’s dedication to Hollywood and the great things dedicated to movies, you will find a lot of great shows, some of which are among my favorites in all of the parks.  At Hollywood Studios, you will find the following shows:

The American Idol Experience

I’ll admit it — I’ve never watched a single episode of American Idol.  However, Scotty McCreery won this past Idol, and seeing as he lives in Garner, just a stones throw from where we live, I actually found myself thinking about this show, and also thinking about watching an episode of Idol.  I haven’t done either, but that may change when we go visit Hollywood Studios during our upcoming vacation…

Beauty and the Beast — Live on Stage

Beauty and the Beast is the only Disney Movie where the stage show opened on the day that the movie was released to theaters.  Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite shows in all of Disney World, and one that I love to see.  It has it all, great music, lively entertainment, that wonderfully romantic story that I love, and a happy ending at the end!  If you’ve never seen Beauty and the Beast, you are doing yourself a disservice.

Disney Junior — Live on Stage!

This is a new version of a show that we saw when Sophie was younger.  When we saw it, it was the Playhouse Disney show, and we had fun with it because it featured a lot of the characters that Sophie was into at the time.  We haven’t seen this version yet, but we may since Anna Jane is that age range.

Fantasmic

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, Fantasmic is actually a show that I’ve never seen before.  From what I hear, though, it is an awesome show, and I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to see it this year.

Muppet*Vision 3-D

Muppet*Vision 3-D is, of course, brought to you by the Muppets, and while extremely corny, I love it!  I grew up with the Muppet Show, and to see all of my favorite Muppets on the big screen, in 3-D no less, is really cool.  The only thing about it is that it is the same as it has been since the first time I saw it, and I would love it if they would upgrade it.  Still, I think Anna Jane and all the rest of our party will love it, so I can’t wait to have them experience it!

Sounds Dangerous with Drew Carey

This show actually takes place in the dark, and to be honest, I have no desire at all to experience it.  How many of you have seen it?  Is it worth a “look”?

Voyage of the Little Mermaid

I’ve only seen the Voyage of the Little Mermaid once, so I’m having trouble recollecting it.  However, I do remember that Sophie liked it, and Anna Jane’s favorite princess is Ariel, so I would expect that we would see it at least once!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has some really great shows, and there seems to be something that everyone will love, so take care, and enjoy the shows!

    I love the Muppets and of course Fantasmic. I too have never seen Sounds Dangerous. I feel like every time I spot it on the time sheet it's on hiatus.
