Final Photo Tour of The Great Movie Ride at Hollywood Studios

Yesterday, August 13th, 2017 marked the final day for Disney World guests to journey through the movies on The Great Movie Ride at Hollywood Studios. Since it’s opening on May 1st, 1989, The Great Movie Ride has been the a popular attraction within the park, in fact the ride itself is what inspired the idea of Disney’s third park, Hollywood Studios (formerly Disney MGM Studios.) Thanks to Lisette, a writer with Chip & Co., we have a last look at this iconic attraction.

Modeled after the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the signage and exterior of the building boasts intricate details.

Below is a video walk through the queue:

A short walk through the queue leads you to a room featuring large Chinese tapestries hanging along the walls. A short film on the history of movies, narrated by Robert Osborne, plays on a loop as you await to board the ride.

Combining special effects, live actors, and audio animatronics, this ride was certainly a spectacular journey through classic movie scenes.

Your journey through the movies ends with a three minute montage of popular moments in film, featuring clips from over 100 movies.

The Great Movie Ride is being replaced with a new attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which Imagineers have reffered to as “game-changing.” I am looking forward to the very first Mickey-themed attraction, I do believe it is long overdue! I am truly going to miss The Great Movie Ride, but as Walt said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
