One of Disney World's four main theme parks, Hollywood Studios is themed on show business, movie-making and animation. The park opened in 1989. The park is laid out like a real motion picture studio, with street scenes and backlots.

Every Disney World Resort offers bus service to Hollywood Studios, and there is also a terrific water taxi service between Epcot and Hollywood Studios, with stops at the resorts located in Disney's Boardwalk area.
Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
One of Disney's most iconic rides, the fabulously themed Tower of Terror is a drop dark ride based upon Rod Serling's seminal sci-fi series The Twilight Zone. The storyline brings you back to 1929 and the fictional 13-story Hollywood Tower Hotel, in Hollywood, California.

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater
Sci-Fi Dive-In Theater is arguably the most fun place to eat in Hollywood Studios. The eatery is themed like a '50s-style drive-in, with diners sitting in convertible cars and watching trailers to so-bad-they're-good B movies from the era. Reservations highly recommended.
Vendors selling Mickey balloons can be found in all the theme parks at Disney World.
