Studio Backlot Tour Hollywood Studios

Studio Backlot Tour closed on September 27, 2014.

Located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park, which is a part of Walt Disney World, the Studio Backlot Tour offers a behind-the-scenes look at just how some of the movie magic and mystery comes to life.

This tour is both a walking tour and a tram tour of the park’s back lot area, and can be expected to last around 40 minutes.

When you make you way into the queue for the tour, you’ll find yourself directed into one of four different lines that are located underneath shade-providing canopies.

You’ll find plenty of interesting props from some of your favorite movies scattered around the area; this can make for a fun game with older children as you try to figure out which movie each of the props was featured in.

Audience Participation

During the waiting period, four volunteer guests are selected to take part in the first part of the tour.

Be sure to raise your hand high if you are interested in participating.

Cast members take guest volunteers to a sound stage where they then participate in the shooting of a small film that is somewhat reminiscent of Pearl Harbor.

This can be a lot of fun for the volunteers, and can certainly offer memories that won’t soon be forgotten.

Guests are then taken into a large warehouse filled with movie props.

Some of the props that are on display come from some of your movie favorites, including Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Santa Clause, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Walking Tour or Tram Tour

This walking tour can be a lot of fun for a movie buff, and it offers plenty of opportunity to snap a few memorable shots of some of your favorite props.

At the exit of the prop warehouse, you’ll find the tram is waiting to be boarded.

The tram takes guests on a slow-paced ride through a variety of areas and winds through the costume and materials building which offers guests the ability to see some of the costumes used in the park, and to see the team of cast members hard at work on the costumes.

The tram then takes guests to the area that is known as the “Boneyard.”

Boneyard

In this boneyard, guests will find a wonderful collection of vehicles that were featured in a lot of well-known movies.

For example, you will be able to see the motorcycles that were used in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and you’ll also be able to see some of the ships from the original Star Wars films.

Some of the other attractions in the boneyard include the escape pod from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, bone cages that were featured in Pirates of the Caribbean, and even the spaceship that was featured in Flight of the Navigator.

For a Disney movie fan, this is truly an incredible opportunity to see some of the items that may hold deep nostalgia for you.

Special Effects

The tram continues through what is described as a movie set that is simply on break for a bit.

Guests are treated to a bit of live-action special effects, which can be a lot of thrilling fun.

The Studio Backlot tour covers so many vehicles and other props that are a part of Disney’s rich movie-making history, which can offer you an interesting insight into the making of some of your favorite movies.

This attraction is wheelchair accessible, and guests do not need to be able to transfer out of their wheelchairs in order to enjoy this ride.

Assisted listening devices are available for those who need them.

While this ride is not at all considered to be scary, and it is certainly suitable for kids and the kids at heart.
