If you’re a movie buff, you’ll love the Great Movie Ride. It’s located inside Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios, inside a recreation of the Grautman Chinese Theater, the original of which is located in Hollywood. The ride itself contains scenes representing movies from all major movie studios, with the one major exception of Universal. Universal Studios runs a rival theme park nearby, which explains the lack of representation.
The ride itself takes visitors through the history of film, and includes scenes from such landmark films as the Wizard of Oz, Indiana Jones, Alien, and scenes from Clint Eastwood and John Wayne movies. In addition to the ride itself, you’ll be able to see props from famous movies while waiting in line for the attraction, including carousel horses from Mary Poppins, a piano from Casablanca, and the ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz!
The Great Movie Ride is one of the major attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. If you’ve come to the land of the Mouse with movies on the brain, be sure to make a visit to this most exciting and informative ride. Many visitors walk away from the park surprised that their favorite attraction was not at the Magic Kingdom, but inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios! It’s yet another reason why visiting this theme park should definitely make its way onto your list of “must dos” when you come to visit Walt Disney World. You won’t be disappointed by this incredible example of Disney engineering and fun.
Movie magic never had it so good!
