MGM Studios
Welcome to the movies! Lights! Camera! ACTION!

The beginning of MGM brings you to more shopping. Didn't find that special item in Magic Kingdom? You'll probably find it here.

As you walk up Hollywood Boulevard, walk under the large sorcerers hat. Past that is your first must see at MGM. The Great Movie ride takes you through the movies. Blockbusters most popular hits. You'll see everything from Wizard of Oz to Aliens.

What's the best part of MGM Studios? The shows of course! There's everything from Beauty and the Beast, to Voyage of the Little Mermaid. You also have Muppet Vision 3-D, One Man's Dream, Playhouse Disney, and Sounds Dangerous. But, the one you don't want to miss is our second MGM must see: Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular.

This is a crazy stunt show where you can meet Harrison Ford's stuntman. He takes you step-by-step through the different stunts they had to do throughout the movie. They'll even ask for assistance and will look around for different people from the audience to come help them. Small warning: Little children who don't like a lot of noise are not going to like this. Check your time schedule for the times for all these shows.

There are tons of things to do at MGM Studios. Our next must see is Studios Backlot Tour: Backstage Pass. This takes you behind the scenes to various movies and television shows from the past and today. They have everything from the Golden Girl's home to the Dipmobile from Roger Rabbit. You also get to see where costumes are made and how Jim Henson made his puppets. But the greatest part of the Backlot Tour? You can actually watch scenes from various films be made! Just like Indiana Jones, they even ask the audience for assistance. That's right! You can be in the movies!

Once your finished with Indy, make sure to stop by Star Tours. This is an exclusive Star Wars ride. It's a simulator that takes you through a galaxy far, far away. Fasten your seat belts and hold on tight. Remember: If you have back, neck, or chest problems, this ride may not be suitable for you. Also, if you are prone to motion sickness or are pregnant, it would be best to skip this ride.

Looking for a place to feed the kids and sit down for a bit? Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure is just the place. Here they sell burgers and such. While you sit and rest, the kids can play. There's also a human-sized Flik here that will be more then happy to take a picture with you.

Once you've eaten and rested up, check out our fourth must see: Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show. You get to watch as motorcycles, cars, and water-craft explode in this breathtaking event. It may be a little loud for small children.

Next stop: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. This makes our fifth must see at MGM. Wanna hear something spooky? This elevator takes you thirteen stories high and then plunges you to the ground! And that's not all. The ride changes every time, so you never know when to expect the big plunge.

Our sixth must see is Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith. This indoor rollercoaster takes you on a wild ride while you get to listen to some of Aerosmith's hit songs. You go through all kinds of hoops and loops. It's dark, so you never know when you'll turn a corner.

At around 6 o'clock gather the gang around and head on back towards Tower of Terror and Beauty and the Beast. No, I'm not suggesting doing these things again. What I am suggesting is that you arrive early to view our final must see in MGM.

Fantasmic is a spectular nighttime show on an island where fantasy comes to life like you've never seen. Mickey Mouse is having a dream and the villains of Disney history are taking over! Join Mickey as he battles against these villains to reclaim his dream as his own. Note: The closer you sit to the stage, the wetter you are going to get.

The reason I mentioned arriving early is because this is the last thing at MGM to see and everybody goes there. Arriving early is the only way for you to guarantee to get good seats. Mind you, the show starts around 7:30, but trust me. The wait is worth it. Kids getting anxious? No worries. There's food stands and gift stands all around. And when you finally go inside, there is someone there to entertain them until the show starts. The vendors usually put on their own little show, doing various stunts and such with the merchandise they are trying to sell.

Don't forget to check out all the shows at MGM before going to Fantasmic. For, what's MGM Studios without the theatre?
