From the brand-new Toy Story Land to interstellar adventures within the Star Wars galaxy, Guests can completely immerse in their favorite stories in totally interactive ways. All you need is a plan, and we just happen to have an itinerary full of ideas and suggestions to get you started; and for Disney® Visa® Cardmembers, there are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of Disney Rewards along the way!

Root for the Hero at the Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular! – Go behind the scenes of an action movie in this crowd-pleasing stunt show starring the unforgettably Indy – and, if you’re feeling extra daring, raise your hand to volunteer as a costumed extra throughout the show!
Find Joy with the Toys at Toy Story Mania!® – Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the Toy Story team are hosting a game of fast reflexes and careful aim. We recommend you aim to arrive early in the day, as it’s one of the most popular attractions in the entire Park. Just make a little time to practice your game face, partner!
Disney Moms Panel Tip – With the My Disney Experience mobile app, all the info you’ll need is in the palm of your hand! The app helps keeps your day on schedule, including wait times, show times, restaurant reservations, Character Experience times and locations, and much more.

Spring Into Fun With the Family on Slinky Dog Dash – Every member of your party can feel some joy when they’re shrunk down to the size of a toy in Toy Story Land, especially when they’re riding Slinky Dog Dash! Woody’s loyal hound Slinky takes twists and turns like only his springy self can, and this attraction goes at a playful pace the whole family can experience.

Disney Moms Panel Tip – If the thrills of Star Wars and the interactive entertainment of Indiana Jones™ appeal to a little one in the party, Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple will too. Young participants must sign up with their parents present 30 minutes before show time. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t get in first thing: there are around 20 shows a day.

Disney Moms Panel Tip – A big day still needs some breaks. Duck into one of the theaters around Disney’s Hollywood Studios® to relax, cool down and enjoy an utterly Disney experience. We recommend Walt Disney Presents, with Disney film history, glimpses of upcoming films and Walt’s vision for the Parks.
Activate Your Lightsabers for Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular

Projection effects, lasers, pyrotechnics and more immerse you in moments from the films, sending you off with that classic quote: “May the Force be with you.”
Disney Moms Panel Tip – The lights of Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular are so bright, you could practically see them from Jakku… but did you know you can join in and be a part of the lights, as well? Made with Magic accessories sold throughout the Park synchronize to glow and change colors with the show, so your whole party can be a part of the experience.
