A Hidden Gem at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Posted in DISNEY DINING, DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS with tags , on August 5, 2012 by disneychronicles

ok, I’ll tell you about it only if you can keep a secret….

It is located right next door to the Sci Fi Dine In.  It is actually pretty unobtrusive, which is part of the charm…and it’s pretty easy to walk right on by and not realize what’s inside.

If you MUST have a coffee (like I usually do!) or you just need some time away from the crowds and hustle! this is the place to go!

What is it? you ask….

Stop into Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Writer’s Stop.  It is a hidden gem that is rarely crowded. Enjoy a good cup of coffee and a snack from the variety of bakery items available there.

It’s by no means a place to have a meal. If you need an afternoon pick-me-up or a morning wake-me-up, then its perfect! The Writer’s Stop offers both hot and cold beverages such as a variety of coffees, teas and soft drinks.

So take a stroll around, there’s plenty to look at or just pull up a chair and relax!   ENJOY!

…..but shhhhhhh don’t tell anyone about it! 😀

Indiana Jones….Epic Stunt Spectacular!

Posted in DISNEY ATTRACTIONS, DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS with tags , on July 23, 2012 by disneychronicles

The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is a stunt show that will both entertain and educate. Set on the set of the opening scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark, the stage production staff shooting the “movie”, prep the audience about what it takes to do action films. A few reenacted scenes later, and you’ve mastered the movie. Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular utilizes both action sequences and educating narrations, as you are guided through the steps of making an action movie, like Indiana Jones.

Do get there early or you may be stuck in the “standing room only” area. (yeah, that was us)

So honestly not really being a Indiana Jones fan I still found this interesting.  Although for me it was one of those shows you see once and don’t need to repeat very soon 🙂

Obviously not all will share this opinion.  The show is consistently upgrading it’s electronics and computer elements to keep it up to date. It is currently the longest running show at a Disney World park. The stunts are real but obviously it doesn’t always end well.

“In 2009 A Walt Disney World cast member is dead after an accident Monday evening at Hollywood Studios.

Stunt performer Anislav Varbanov, 30, was fatally injured during a rehearsal for the ” Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular.” He was doing a tumbling roll after 7 p.m. when he was hurt. He was pronounced dead at 8.43pm.”

I also have read this has not been the only incident but the most recent. Kinda puts a damper on the whole thing!

Check out the video….(no spoiler alert just a bit of the show)
