Sci-Fi Dive-In at Hollywood Studios: A Review

First and foremost, it is indeed apparently “Dive-In” and not “Drive-in”. So, no, that is not a typo. 🙂

We had a reservation for Sci-Fi Dive-In on our last trip in 2013, but sadly had to shift our plans around and couldn’t get replacement reservations. So we made sure to make it part of our 2015 trip especially since we’re not sure if it’ll be there once Star Wars Land begins construction in 2016/2017. Come find out if it was worth the wait…

But, here is a great pic of it for old time’s sake:

Farewell, Studio Backlot Tour at Hollywood Studios

This summer there has been a lot of announcements about things closing (and opening) at Walt Disney World in Orlando. The Maelstrom / Frozen announcement probably got the most press (and biggest opinions). American Idol Experience closing didn’t get too much buzz and I am actually still confused if Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular is actually closing or not [readers?]. Another ride on the chopping block, and in fact, set to close it’s doors forever tomorrow (Saturday, Sep 27th) is the Studio Backlot Tour at Hollywood Studios.
