It will always be MGM Studios to me, well actually as a former MGM Studios cast member I refer to it (as does any other cast member) as “the Studios”. Well whatever you want to call it, this Walt Disney World theme park is about to turn 25.
Here’s a list of festivities that will be taking place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 1st, 2014.
10 AM – REDEDICATION CEREMONY – Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will take the stage with Disney’s Hollywood Studios Vice President Dan Cockerell to start the celebration day, honoring some of the 25-year cast members.
7 PM – “STARS OF THE STUDIOS” MOTORCADE – This parade will make its way down Hollywood Blvd. and feature many of the famous characters showcased throughout the park. Mickey and Minnie will be joined by television and film stars including Captain Jack Sparrow, Darth Vader, Doc McStuffins, Wreck-It Ralph, Venellope, Sofia the First and more.
7:30 – 9:30 PM – DANCE PARTY – Following the motorcade, the area in front of the park’s Sorcerer Hat Stage will become a dance party.
9:30 PM – FIREWORKS – 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.
