The Great Movie Ride® fades to black soon

Don’t miss your chance to relive this dazzling adventure through classic Hollywood. The movie magic ends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® on August 13.

‘DISNEY MOVIE MAGIC’ NIGHTTIME EXPERIENCE DAZZLES AT DISNEY’S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS THIS SUMMER

Disney’s newest “must-see” show at the Walt Disney World® Resort – “Disney Movie Magic” – has debuted at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® and we’re excited to share more details about this one-of-a-kind cinematic experience.

Each night this summer, “Disney Movie Magic” is transforming the iconic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with special lighting and state-of-the-art projection mapping technology to put guests right in the middle of a celebration of Disney films.

Guests will be able to recognize many of the movie moments during “Disney Movie Magic.” The show features dozens of them, from Disney classics like “Mary Poppins” to contemporary blockbusters such as “Pirates of the Caribbean,” the Indiana Jones adventures and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” Also, each high-energy show spans a variety of different genres including musicals, romance, comedy, classics, fantasy, sci-fi and adventure.

Guests can experience “Disney Movie Magic” nightly at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this summer, in addition to regular performances of “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular.”

New Nighttime Entertainment at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Celebrates Decades of Films From the Disney Family of Studios

Star-struck guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios this summer have a front-row seat for movie classics in the all-new entertainment experience “Disney Movie Magic.”  The nightly 10-minute performance bathes the park’s iconic Chinese Theater in breathtaking projection-mapping technology that brings to life scores of classic movie moments from the Disney family of film studios.

Chimney sweeps from “Mary Poppins” “step in time” over the rooftops of London.  A playful Captain Jack swash-buckles his way across the high seas of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” “Tron: Legacy” Lightcycles speed through The Grid.  And Lumiere from “Beauty and the Beast” invites you to be his guest.

These and other cinematic gems that have lit up silver screens around the world play across the facade of the theater in the fast-paced “Disney Movie Magic” – from Disney classics like “Mary Poppins” to contemporary blockbusters such as “Pirates of the Caribbean” and this summer’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

Set to searchlights painting the skies and a musical score composed and arranged by Michael Patti (Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, StarBright Holidays), “Disney Movie Magic” puts guests right in the middle of beloved Disney films. All genres are represented including musicals, romance, comedy, classics, fantasy, sci-fi, animation and adventure.

“For generations these films have touched our lives,” said Michael Roddy, Show Director, Disney Parks Live Entertainment. “They represent our childhood, our dreams, our fantasies and our mythology. We have laughed and cried, loved and been thrilled. ‘Disney Movie Magic’ celebrates those films and the films to come.”

“Disney Movie Magic” begins, fittingly, with Walt Disney himself. The red-carpet footage featuring Walt is from the 1964 premiere of “Mary Poppins,” which took place at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

What unspools from there is pure movie magic – from “The Jungle Book” to “Beauty and the Beast,” from “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” to “Cinderella,” from “Swiss Family Robinson” to “The Love Bug.” With the front of the theater a dramatic canvas, decades of movie moments play out across the ten-minute run time of “Disney Movie Magic.”

“Disney Movie Magic” is presented nightly this summer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, in addition to regular performances of “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular.”

Photos – Inside Rizzo’s Deluxe Supreme Banquet Hall at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

For guests who are unfamiliar with Pizzerizzo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this is the newly themed location that previously housed Toy Story Pizza Planet.

One cool side area of Pizzerizzo is Rizzo’s Deluxe Supreme Banquet Hall.  It is located at the top of the stairs and if you like cheesy wedding reception/banquet hall dining make sure to eat in this area.  It features a dance floor (yes we have seen people dance on it) along with classic 70’s and 80’s music.

Here are some photos of the area.
