Hollywood Studios has and is still going through some big changes, in fact I can hardly wait to go see what these Imagineers have been up too. So one big change of course was the removal of the Soucerer's Hat, which was blocking the Chinese Theater. The removal started on January 7, 2015 and 49 days later on February 25, 2015 it was completely gone. I have to admit I am going to miss the hat, I guess because my first trip to Disney it was there, but one thing I learned about Walt Disney World nothing stays the same. In fact, I have not yet seen it all and I have visited 11 times. My best advice is do all you can do, without totally exhausting yourself, accept what you did not see, and plan it again. Here is a photo of the beautiful missed Soucerer's Hat and a photo of the Chinese Theater..
VOYAGE OF THE LITTLE MERMAID
What I can share is some of the things that will remain the same for now at The Hollywood Studios. In a photo above I shared a picture of the attraction, " Voyage of the Little Mermaid." This is a about a 20 minute show, based on the movie, " The Little Mermaid," and takes place, under the sea. I have boys, and we still go see it every time. It is a short play in the dark of the movie condensed down, but has live characters, robotic characters, puppeteers and beautiful music. This is one the attractions you do not want to miss especially if you have girls, however, once again I took my boys every year.
Fantasmic is a night time spectular show in an outdoor styled theater, that holds nearly 6,900 people. You show check times guide upon entering the park for this show, but every seat is a good seat. This musical production has a mixture of fireworks, characters, fountains, fire, water walls, and lasers. It draws guests into the dream world of Mickey Mouse. This show is approximately 1/2 hour and cannot be missed. As Disney is always changing things, you would be very disappointed if you planned to go back and this show was no longer there, so you should do it if you can. Mickey can be seen shooting fireworks from his finger tips, from conducting an orchestra, to to fighting off villains, Mickey will keep your eyes fully engaged, as this show has alot of twists. My seating preference is about 8 rows back as the first few rows can get a bit wet. If you don't like fighting crowds sitting near the top will allow you easy access out. This has to be my absolute favourite show!!
