Walt Disney World Resort - Disney's Hollywood Studios, Part 6

Sunset Boulevard
Looking down Sunset Boulevard...

Sunset Boulevard

DHS Map Sunset Boulevard is the latest expansion (as opposed to Pixar Place which replaced part of Mickey Avenue) where Disney set out to satisfy the Thrill Ride seekers at Disney, with the addition of two of the most popular attractions at DHS.

Rock 'n Roller Coaster and Tower Of Terror are the two feature thrill rides in DHS. The indoor roller coaster and runaway elevator are perennial favorites in this part of the park. Along with those two is a version of the Beauty and the Beast stage show, supposedly the impetus for the Broadway show currently popular. The fourth attraction is down the street, and to the right, in the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater.

Sunset Boulevard is also home to the best food court in DHS, where you can get a turkey leg. My trip to DHS isn't complete without a Turkey Leg here...

Sunset Boulevard - Beauty and the Beast

The Theater of the Stars holds daily showings of Beauty and the Beast. It is much like Voyage of the Little Mermaid on the other side of the park, where the costumed character's voices are pre-recorded, but Belle and Gaston are miked and provide live performances. Like Mermaid, it is a brutally shortened live version of Beauty and the Beast, and it is said this show was the impetus of putting the show on Broadway.

It's worth the effort to see it, at least once.

Sunset Boulevard - Rock 'n' Roller Coaster

It's the ol' Alice in Wonderland story. You're Late!

You and 23 other Aerosmith fans are stuffed into a limo, and launched via linear induction motors to 60mph in 3 seconds so you can get to the concert in time. Three inversions and a number of twists and turns later (in complete darkness, the entire coaster is enclosed in buildings) while an Aerosmith tune screams in your ears, you arrive in time for the concert. But you never get to see the concert. Huh.

Thumbs up anyway!

If you Google this coaster and investigate a little, you'll find this Coaster has an outdoor twin, in case you were curious what the track layout looks like.

Tower of Terror
The Hollywood Tower of Terror. Think of the cleaning cost savings!
