The Great Movie Ride is our choice for Day 87 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown

Hello everyone!  Today is Day 87 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown, and for today, we’re heading over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to take a look at the Great Movie Ride!  This attraction is one that, I’ll admit, I wasn’t all that crazy about when I first rode it, but it has definitely grown on me over the years.  The Great Movie Ride takes a look at some of the great movies from the history of filmmaking, all from your vantage point riding in one of the vehicles you would find on a movie set.  It makes for a great experience as you travel through multiple genres of movies, everything from musicals to gangster movies to westerns and on and on.

The Great Movie Ride may be a little dated since it hasn’t changed much over the years, but I still like it.  I often wonder, though, how cool it might become if they were to redo the attraction and turn it into a showcase featuring great Disney and Pixar movies from over the years.  Can you imagine riding in your ride vehicle and going from the Bayou of Louisiana in Princess and the Frog into the woods scene from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and from there over to the woods scene from Beauty and the Beast and ending up over at Rapunzel’s tower in Tangled?  I think that there is so much potential there that it could really explode the popularity of the attraction, but what do you think?  Let me know in the comments, please, and thanks for stopping by today!  I’ll close today by sharing a picture from one famous movie that you might recognize…
