"Disney's Hollywood Studios has something for everyone in your group. Thrills for the teens, live shows for the tots or broadway performances for Seniors. Little mermaids, little Skywalkers and little rockers will all find one-of-a-kind experiences at Hollywood Studios."
Please note that Disney’s Hollywood Studios is currently undergoing a massive overhaul. The first phase of this is now completed as of July 2018 with the recent opening of Toy Story Land. The second phase will be completed by the end of 2019 with the debut of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge; before that, Minnie & Mickey’s Runaway Railway will also open in 2019, likely in the summer. There are also numerous cosmetic and thematic changes around the park.
Hollywood Studios also has lots of character meet and greet opportunities for characters like Sofia the First, Chewbacca, Olaf, and even Sorcerer Mickey! And don't forget to include the nighttime water and laser show, Fantasmic!
