Why Disney’s Hollywood Studios Is Still Hot This Summer

It's no secret, Disney's Hollywood Studios is undergoing some major construction with many previous Guest areas closed down and blocked off to make wake for new adventures.

Because while the idea of new rides and attractions excite us, the ugly walls, and fewer attractions leave us wondering why we're paying so much to get in the park.

If you're a thrill-seeker then you probably already have The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror on your must-ride list of attractions.

But if you haven't had a chance to experience this attraction yet and you only have a slight fear of falling elevators and dark rides, I would suggest adding it to your FastPass+ selections on your next visit.

Race Courses: They Can Make or Break You

NOTE: Not All of the runDisney events mentioned in this article are still held.

When I first started running, I never gave much thought to the actual race course itself. I was more concerned about actually finishing the race and not getting swept! (If you're not familiar with being swept, for Disney races you must keep a 16 minute/mile pace on the course or you will get picked up by race officials and taken to the end of the race.) Now as I've done more races, I have become increasingly aware of the course and what challenges it will hold.
