Guide to Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios opened in 1989 as MGM Studios and while the name has changed, the overall theme has stayed the same.

The park was initially built to look like the Golden Age of Hollywood with street names after famous LA landmarks and replicas of Hollywood buildings like Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

In more recent decades, Disney Imagineers refocused the park to include lands based on popular Disney film series.
