Today, May 1, 2014, marks the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida! Hollywood Studios “pays tribute to many Hollywood icons of the silver screen so a silver anniversary is a special one to celebrate.” On May 1, 1989, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, formerly known as Disney-MGM Studio, became the third Disney theme park to open at the Walt Disney World Resort. Here are just a few of the celebrations happening in honor of the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios:
- Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will take the stage with Disney’s Hollywood Studios Vice President Dan Cockerell to start the celebration day at 10:00 AM. They will honor some of the cast members who have worked in the park for the last 25 years during a short re-dedication ceremony.
- A special motorcade, “Stars of the Studios,” will pass down Hollywood Blvd. starting at 7 p.m., featuring many of the famous characters showcased throughout the park. Mickey and Minnie will be joined by television and film stars such as Captain Jack Sparrow, Darth Vader, Doc McStuffins, Wreck-It Ralph, Venellope, Sofia the First and more!
- After the motorcade, the area in front of the Sorcerer Hat Stage will host a dance party before a fireworks show ends the day in grand fashion at 9:30 p.m. The pyrotechnics show, which will be high in the sky above the Sorcerer Mickey Hat, will pay tribute to 25 years of show business stories that have been told throughout the park!
All of these special events and entertainment in honor the 25th anniversary are included in regular theme park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
25th anniversary commemorative merchandise will also be available for purchase while supplies last. A delicious treat, a 25th Anniversary Chocolate Nutella Cupcake, will be sold at quick service dining locations throughout Hollywood Studios during the day as well.
Happy 25th Anniversary to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
