Disney Parades, Fireworks, and Shows. Oh My! (part II)

Good evening fellow Disney Enthusiasts!

As promised, we are back to give you our take on all of the non-ride entertainment found in the WDW parks. In this post we will take a look at what Hollywood Studios has to offer.

>Muppet Vision 3-D - this show is located close to the Streets of America. 3-D doesn't really do this show justice. Kermit and the rest of the gang provide non-stop laughs. A Muppet show would not be complete without Waldorf and Stratler, the not-so-subtle wise cracking critics. These two fans (?) just add to the chaos. This is a great family show!

> Lights, Motors, Action! - Located in Backlot area. This high energy, revved-up, automobile stunt show is quite amazing. Stunt drivers show the audience how car chases, jumps, and other high octane scenes are done in the movies. This is a must-see for car enthusiasts and movie buffs alike. **Warning** This show has quite a bit of fire and explosives. It might be frightening for children sesitive to this type of thing.

>Indiana Jones Stunt Show - This great show is located across from the American Idol Experience. It gives the audience a look at what goes in to making scenes like those found in the Indianna Jones movies. **Warning** There are sounds of gunshots and an explosion in this show. If children are sensitive to noise you might want to avoid this.

>American Idol Experience - This attraction is just over a year old. It is located next the the Scorcerer's Hat. The show is fantastic! Each morning people audition for the show. The people chosen to be contestants compete in shows throughout the day. Audiences watch the contestants perform and vote for their favorite. The winner from each show comes back in the evening to perform in the Finale Show. At the finale, the audience votes to decide the winner. The winner receives a "Dream Ticket". This ticket allows them to go to the front of the line at one of the real A.I. auditions. It is sooo much fun to see if the performers have what it takes! This is a show for the entire family.

> The Art of Disney Animation - This brief show is very unique, and one of our personal favorites. It is located in the Animation Courtyard next to Playhouse Disney. You have the opportunity to meet a real Disney artist. The artist tells you a little about animation and then shows you a short film that explains the process. After the film is when things become interesting. Immediately following the film, you are invited to participate in a drawing class with a real Disney animator! The class is about 20 minutes long. The artist teaches you step-by-step how to draw a Disney character. The animators are great. They try to draw many different characters throughout the day. This is great for the entire family!

>Playhouse Disney - This show is a classic with the pre-school set. The kids, and parents alike, find themselves dancing and singing along. Parents, don't even try to pretend that you don't know the songs. They are engrained in your brain. This show is high energy fun!

>Mulch, Sweat and Shears - A family of lawn care experts that just so happen to have their own rock band. These guys are amazing!!!!!!They play classic rock tunes from the 80's (my personal favorite) as well as other well-known songs. They are non-stop fun! The group can be found throughout the day on the Streets of America. As of now, they also play on the stage in front of the hat every evening.

This is just a partial list of what Hollywood Studios has to offer. We will continue with this park in our next post.

Have a magical evening!
