What are Dad’s 5 favorite things at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? Let’s see.
So what are my five favorite attractions at Disney Hollywood Studios? Well, there’s only seven or eight attractions in the whole park. No, I’m just kidding. There’s not a whole lot of attractions at Hollywood Studios, and being an adult, there’s really not a whole lot of attractions for adults. I haven’t had kids in a long time, so I kind of miss the kids rides, but for me the top five attractions of Hollywood Studios are in reverse order.
Let’s see, we’re going to start with, what is that, Muppet Vision 3D. I love the Muppets “It’s time to play the music”. I just loved watching the Muppet Show. I grew up with the Muppet show. It was on … I wasn’t a kid, but kind of in my formative adult years. I just loved the Muppet Show.
And I love going to the, I’ve seen the Muppets’ Vision 3D show so many times I can see it now… Here comes The Gonzo blowing his streamer,, and I can tell you what Statler and Waldorf (the grumpy old guys up in the balcony) are going to say. As often as I’ve been, I still love going to the Muppet Show. In fact, Mrs. Mom and I, when we were there just last month, that’s one of the things we had to do, was the Muppet Show. So that is the first of my 5 favorite attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Tower of Terror

Number two is the Tower of Terror. I know there’s a lot of people that have some problems with the Tower of Terror. Me, too. I don’t do well with going up and down. I can’t ride Splash Mountain because of the big drop, but I still like the Tower of Terror.
Even thought the drop makes my stomach go kinda wild, there’s something about it that, it’s one of those like watching the car wreck. You just gotta kind of do it. You got to watch. You can’t get away from it, but every time we go, we do the Tower of Terror. We did skip it this time, but that was due to some physical problems we were having, but we always do the Tower of Terror.
Star Tours – The Adventure Continues

My number three favorite attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is Star Tours – The Adventure Continues. I’m a big fan of Star Wars, since the first movie came out in 1977. My senior hear in high school, I watched it nine times that year. I was hooked from the beginning. I was hooked on Star Wars, and I really like the Star Tours ride.
Even though it makes me a little sick sometimes, but I like, I really enjoy Star Tours, and seeing now that they’ve got C-3PO in there, and … I always want to be the rebel spy. Mrs. Mom was a rebel spy once but I’ve never gotten to be a rebel spy. So my number three favorite thing at Hollywood Studios is Star Tours.
My number-four favorite ride at Hollywood Studios is Toy Story Mania. Aw man, Buzz Lightyear and Toy Story, I could ride those rides all day long. Just going around shooting and pulling, and shooting and pulling, and shooting and pulling. I’m good at that. I’m good at Toy Story.
I always beat everybody in the car. (Except when my shooter breaks.) I beat Mrs. Mom, when I’m playing Mrs. Mom it is not the best at those kind of games. Toy Story Mania is my number four favorite ride. Now, these are probably in reverse order because it’s like my number-two favorite ride so …
That brings us to the number one ride. It’s Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster. I’m not a roller coaster guy, but there’s something about that ride. It’s so smooth. It is just the smoothest roller coaster I’ve ever been on, even the loops. You start out going through the loops, and the barrel roll, and I just love the music playing in the background, the talk about going down the speedway, the announcer in the background, “Five, four, three …” Ahh! Here we go. Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster, it’s just my favorite ride at Hollywood Studios.
