  • [Question] Filming/production currently at DHS?

    I was wondering if anyone could settle a debate: is there still some, or any semblance of production occurring at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and to that extent, Walt Disney Studios Florida? (if it still exists of course)

    If not, when did the production facilities shut down for good? (and no, I don't mean the animation portion)

    There is no regular production on the lot. Disney may occassionally shoot short marketing packages there for their cable outlets.

      Walt Disney Studios Florida was shuttered in 2004/2005. The animation studio was closed the animators were let go.

      The production facilities were converted to other attractions:
      Toy Story Mania
      Narnia
      One Man's Dream
      Mickey Meet and Greet

      The Bungalows are just theme park management offices and storage.

      There is nothing.

      Universal Studios Orlando while it has mainly shuttered operations too, it does have TV show and film projects from time to time.

      WWE RAW is filmed there
      Family Feud was filmed there
      Bring it On III was filmed there
      Ellen comes once a year and does shows there

      But over at Disney's Hollywood Studios the only filming they do there is really for promotional materials for the parks.

            And the only reason TNA keeps it there is because it is easier to draw a studio audience from the theme park than if the show were produced in Tennessee.

              USO isn't really a studio. Everything is linked to the park.

              USH is a real movie studio and theme park.

                USF is a theme park first, studio second. That doesn't mean it isn't really a studio.

                  But the "studio" was built for the park. Hollywood was built around the studio.

                    Universal Orlando doesn't have the support facilities producers expect from a modern, full-service studio, but it was built as a studio, nonetheless.

                      Thank you! I actually learned that USO does do various production today and I was shocked, seeing as how DHS had long shuttered. This led to a debate between a friend and me, seeing as the much-maligned backlot tour still appropriates some idea of filming that goes on, but I guess it's all just there for the guests now. Kind of sad, seeing as how in the late 80's and early 90's they were really serious about it being something special. Remember the tour being two hours long​?!

                      It has to only be a matter of time before the tram area is fully shut down and they pave over Catastrophe Canyon with a new attraction.
