Best family shows at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Disney Vacation Guide: Family showtime at Hollywood Studios
Hollywood Studios is a major draw for adult visitors to Walt Disney World, but there are some shows that are well suited for the whole family. Here are our favorites for the whole family to enjoy:
Muppet Vision 3-D
Be part of the show from a plush seat in a theater designed to mimic the one from the original Muppets TV Show. Kermit, Piggy and the gang will appear to be running around right in front of you on your wacky 3D tour of Muppet Labs. Brace yourself for outlandish pranks and prepare for a crazy, explosive ending because this is, after all, a Muppet Show!
To see a scary-looking friendly monster up close at this Hollywood Studiosattraction, sit near the front of the theater where Sweetums is spotted throughout the show.
- Duration: 29 minutes (12 minute pre-show and 17 minute movie)
Beauty and the Beast Live
This lavish Broadway-style musical mirrors the classic animated film and even features some original voice talent from the movie. The gorgeous sets, dazzling costumes and incredibly choreographed dance numbers bring to life the enchanted story of a young girl named Belle who falls in love with a terrible Beast. The romance and magic of the classic story combined with modern Disney effects will delight fans of this “tale as old as time.”
Get there 30 minutes before show time to ensure a seat. There is often warm-up entertainment to enjoy before the show starts.
- Duration: 30 minutes
Voyage of the Little Mermaid
Enter a glorious underwater world where a gentle ocean breeze kisses your skin in the liquid darkness of a reef-walled theater. Hear that familiar calypso beat as Sebastian, backed by 100 other ocean creatures, opens the show with the Oscar-winning song, “Under the Sea.” Watch as the Little Mermaid falls in love and loses her coveted voice to Ursula in order to live among humans. Clips from the movie are played between live performances so there’s never a dull moment right up to the satisfying musical finale.
The shortest wait time will be first thing in the morning for this popular show while most visitors are exploring other parts of the Hollywood Studios theme park.
- Duration: 17 minutes
