Hollywood Studios has become a very popular park since the addition of Galaxy’s Edge. In order to make the most of your trip, there are some things you should know.
What makes this park different from the other Disney World parks is that it was once a real working studio.
You’ll find Hollywood Studios divided into seven themed areas that are based on real places in California or popular movies.
