Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

I am a BIG Star Wars fan. Always have been since my senior year in high school when Star Wars came out. So I was really, really excited and a little wary to try Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (RoR). You never know with a new ride whether it will meet with expectations or […]

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

I have to admit, since 1977, I have been enthralled by Star Wars. The time I first saw “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away“, I was hooked. I’ve dreamed of living in that galaxy ever since. Now I can, because on August 29, 2019, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Disney’s BEST. […]

The Great Movie Ride

The Great Movie Ride closed permanently on August 13, 2017, to make way for a brand new attraction – Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.   The Great Movie Ride at Disney World Hollywood Studios is a ride that has great scenes from great movies. OK, enough sarcasm; if you like old movies, this ride is for […]

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Questions

So now that we have an opening date for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, a lot of questions have come up. A whole lot. I thought it would be appropriate to have a single page to answer questions instead of trying to look at a bunch of different pages. So let’s dive in. Oops, one quick […]

Star Wars Weekend

NOTE: Star Wars Weekends were discontined in 2015. Star Wars Weekend comes to Disney Hollywood Studios every year. It’s a natural combination. Star Tours is one of the most popular rides at the Studios. It opened just a few months after the park did in 1989. The Festival has been held every year since 1997 […]

Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular

I’m a big fan of fireworks shows. My dream trip to Walt Disney World includes watching two or three fireworks shows every night. I really like the Star Wars fireworks at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular combines two of my favorite things. Star Wars and fireworks. May the Force be with you […]

Walt Disney World Height Requirements

Walt Disney World height requirements measuring stick

Just what ARE the Walt Disney World height requirements? Regardless of your kids’ ages, height requirements are a big deal. Every time we go to Walt Disney World, we see parents consoling their kids because they can’t quite reach the measurement. Or the parents try to cajole the Cast Member into letting the kid in. […]

When Will Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and the Star Wars Hotel Open?

Today we have two questions about the same thing so I’m combining them here. First… “I am planning our first family trip to Walt Disney World in May 2019. I have heard a rumor that the Star Wars Land” (Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge) “will open May 5th? Do you know if this is true? I […]

Christmas at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Christmas at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Christmas at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is lots of fun with Jingle Bell Jingle BAM! fireworks, Sunset Seasons Greetings, and decor galore. While holiday festivities at the studios pale in comparison to the all-out spectacles at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, the cheery decor and impressive projection shows bring seasonal spirit to this park. Look for decorations […]
