“Please fill in all available space” is back sooner than any of us anticipated. One of my favorite rides at Hollywood Studios is once again showing the pre-show!


Various rides throughout the parks host pre-shows, which are fun little rooms or stories you are told before boarding the attraction. They are a fun way to hype you up for the ride and keep you entertained while waiting. Here are a few examples in each park:

Magic Kingdom: Haunted Mansion; Enchanted Tiki Room; Enchanted Tales with Belle; Carousel of Progress

Epcot: Soarin’; Mission: SPACE

Hollywood Studios: Rise of the Resistance; Tower of Tower; Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway; Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster; Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run; Muppet Vision 3D; Star Tours

Animal Kingdom: Flight of, uh, Passage; DINOSAUR

This past week, many have begun returning to the parks! Haunted Mansion just went back to pre-pandemic times with the stretching room pre-show back to normal. You can read about that HERE.

Hollywood Studios

As I (Monica) mentioned above, there are so many pre-shows at Hollywood Studios! My favorite attraction is Tower of Terror, partly because of the pre-show.

The pre-show has returned to Tower of Terror!

I absolutely love this pre-show. It has all that I’m looking for. I am brought out of real life and into the life of the attraction. The Imagineers watched 156 episodes of The Twilight Zone, and it shows because I am absolutely spooked out before even getting on the ride.

The theming and immersive of the ride is probably one of the most underrated in all of Disney World, and I think the pre-show has a lot to do with it.

Hollywood 1939. Amid the glitz and the glitter of a bustling movie town at the height of its golden age, the Hollywood Tower Hotel was a star in its own right.

Who doesn’t have that line memorized?! It’s just classic. And it’s back!
