MGM Studios PlaneI particularly enjoy the Disney Hollywood Studios Backlot Tour. This attraction usually has shorter lines that are fast moving. This 45 minute tour will take you behind the scenes of how movies are filmed and you might even find yourself part of the action! Plus, you will get a special glimpse of Disney memorabilia that can't be found elsewhere.

You can find character meet times at the Hollywood Studios Guest Relations at Crossroad of the World.

Back Lot Tour MGM Studios

Lights! Motors! Action Extreme Stunt Show. It is a 35 minute motorcycle and car driving performance. Be sure to get there first thing in the day as show times are limited. The theater holds over 5000 Disney guests, but will fill to capacity during the peak season. The stunt drivers in the show are Disney cast members who tried out and were then trained by stunt professionals. Now that is amazing!

Seating tip for the Fantasmic! show: the middle to rear of the theater offers excellent views without getting too close to the splashes and heat of the show’s action. This is a don’t miss show.
