The Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is possibly Hollywood Studios' most iconic attraction. The line is long as ever but the wait is well worth it once you get inside! Directly based on the classic first-class TV show “The Twilight Zone,” this ride takes you and your family on a spine-tingling journey through the eerie halls of the Hollywood Tower Hotel. After stepping foot in the hotel's lobby, you will board an elevator that suddenly drops and rises unexpectedly, creating a rip-roaring and nail-biting experience. This is one of the first of the Top 5 Disney World Hollywood Studios Attractions.

One of my favorite parts of the ride is that you are treated to a storyline and a slew of special effects along the ride that makes you feel as if you are part of the Twilight Zone. All in all, the ride's intricate theming and attention to detail make it a surefire attraction that you have to visit while in Hollywood Studios, especially if you are a fan of horror and suspense films. In saying this though, whether you are a daredevil or simply just looking for a unique and unforgettable experience, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is a ride you won't want to miss while completing your stay in Disney World. 

Scavenger Hunts in Disney World

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

I originally was not the biggest Star Wars fan when I was younger, but through persistent dedication from my family members, I was adopted into the club! Putting that aside, if you're a Star Wars fan or just looking for an immersive and exciting ride, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run in Disney World's Hollywood Studios is a must-see attraction.


This ride will take you on a gripping journey through space aboard the iconic Millennium Falcon which has a pilot on the ship who takes part in an action-packed smuggling mission with you. With stunning graphics, realistic sound effects, and complex theming, this ride truly makes you feel like you are part of the Star Wars universe. I will admit that I have been on this ride over ten times now, and it gets better and better every time! Whether you're a die-hard fan of the series or a first-timer like I was, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is an experience that you won't soon forget. Get ready to buckle up, grab the controls, and get ready for an unforgettable journey through a galaxy far, far away. 

Toy Story Land

Toy Story Land is one of the more family-friendly areas in Disney World for fans of the beloved Pixar franchise. This mesmeric land brings the world of Toy Story to life with larger-than-life characters, attractions, and theming that truly make you and your loved ones feel like they are a part of the toy box. A few of the treasured highlights of this section in Hollywood Studios include the Slinky Dog Dash roller coaster, which takes riders on a spirited journey through Andy's backyard, and the Alien Swirling Saucers ride, which lets visitors spin around in toy saucers while being chased by the aliens from the movie.

Disney Toy Story Land

On the whole, with colorful theming, iconic characters, and exciting rides, Toy Story Land is a place where you can let your imaginations run wild and experience the joy and magic of the Toy Story universe. If you have the time, when you're all done, head over to Woody’s Lunch Box and try the delicious lunch box tart’s that they specialize in!

Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is the ideal place to be if you are an avid fan of rock music and high-speed thrills. Based indoors, this coaster puts you on an untamed journey through the streets of Los Angeles while blasting Aerosmith's greatest hits in the background. With lightning-fast speeds, reversals, and drops, Rock ‘n' Roller Coaster is a hair-raising ride that will leave your heart racing through your chest and your adrenaline pumping.

Rockin Roller Coaster

In my opinion though, one of the more underrated parts is the ride’s sleek theming and special effects that include a launch that accelerates from 0 to 57 miles per hour in a mere 2.8 seconds. If you are a true roller coaster enthusiast that loves a high-speed race with rock music blaring in your ears, do not miss this ride on your next visit to Disney World. Always a plus for this coaster as well is the fact that it all takes place inside, so it is the perfect option if the weather is acting up outside which tends to happen in Florida. 

Mickey And Minnie’s Runaway Railway

How could I ever forget the celebrated Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway? This pleasantly exciting attraction is perfect for any age group, which is one of the main reasons it is on this list. The ride will bring you on a whimsical expedition through a cartoon world, where you can join Mickey and Minnie on a wild adventure full of surprises and laughter.
