Disney's Hollywood Studios

Disney's Hollywood Studios focuses both on shows and attractions based on the movies produced by these two studios but also on highlighting how those movies were made. Unfortunately, though, you don't really ever get to see them being made. Despite not having a whole lot of attractions, the park does have two of the premiere thrill rides at Walt Disney World: Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

Facilities - Hide Section
  • ATMs: The park's has two ATM locations. The first is at the package pickup counter near the main gate. There are also ATMs at Toy Story Pizza Planet in the Backlot area of the park.

  • City Hall: Immediately inside the park.

  • Disney Dollars: Disney Dollars are the private currency of Disneyland. Any cash accepting location inside of the park will accept Disney Dollars as well.

  • Equipment Rental: Strollers, manual wheelchairs, and Electronic Convenience Vehicles (ECVs) can be rented at Oscar's Super Service to the right as you enter the park. Stroller replacements are also available (with receipt and on an as available basis) at Tatooine Traders.

    Strollers rent for $15 per day for a single and $31 for a double. Length of stay rentals are available for $13 and $27 per day. Manual wheelchairs rent for $12 per day or $10 per day for length of stay. ECVs are $50 per day with an additional $20 refundable deposit. No length of stay rental is available. If you are renting a wheelchair or ECV you may also want to stop by City Hall to request the Guidebook for Guests with Disabilities which will provide information on ride access and other issues.

    In-park rentals do not allow you take strollers out of the park, but rather you must get a new one at each park. Your rental receipt will allow you to get a new rental the same day (supplies permitting) when you get to another park.

    For additional information on getting around the parks with wheelchairs and ECVs, see our Walt Disney World Mobility page.

  • For rental strollers that cost less than Disney's, and that you can use anywhere you go throughout your visit, check out MousePlanet partner Magic Strollers. Affiliated with Owner's Locker, Magic Strollers will deliver your single or double stroller to your resort before you arrive and pick it back up when you leave. Magic Strollers delivers to resorts throughout the Orlando area, not just to Walt Disney World. Visit their site and check them out for yourself, or order now!

  • First Aid and Baby Care: Both are in the Guest Relations building just inside the park.

  • Lockers: Immediately to the right, near Oscar's Classic Car Souvenirs. Locker rentals cost $7 per day for a standard size locker and $9 per day for a large locker, plus a $5 refundable deposit.

  • Restrooms:

  • Kennel: Disney's Hollywood Studios (and all of the Walt Disney World parks no longer (as of September 1, 2010) has its own kennel facilities. Best Friends Pet Care is now operating a 50,000 square foot pet resort at 2510 Bonnet Creek Parkway in the Epcot resort area.


    In additional to single day visit or overnight boarding for cats and dogs the facility can also handle a certain number of other pets such as hamsters, birds, and pot-bellied pigs. It is not required that you either be visiting the parks to kennel your animal in the facility although a discount is given to people staying at one of the on-property resorts.

    Reservations are not required but are strongly recommended, especially during peak seasons. Hours vary but the center is generally open from an hour before that day's earliest park opening to an hour after the last park closes, so remember to take pet retrieval time into account when planning the end of your day.

    Overnight boarding starts at $37 for dogs ($34 if a resort guest), $23 ($21) for cats, and other animas range from $12-$23 ($10-$21) depending on size. Full day kenneling of dogs is $27 for basic kenneling, cats are $15; less than six hours is $16 and $15 respectively.

    For more information or reservations, call 1-877-493-9738 (877-4 WDW PETS) or visit their web site. See MousePlanet contributor Vance Cope's article (September 10, 2010) on the opening of Best Friends Pet Care.
