100_1039

We don't spend a lot of time at Disney's Animal Kingdom except to see some of the shows and hit a couple of the significant attractions.

Almost every time a group of Disney fans start talking about which park they like the most or spend the most time in, Disney's Hollywood Studios(DHS) comes up on the short end. I must be one of those few folks who really enjoy and appreciate what this park has to offer that is so often overlooked by so many. No matter what you enjoy about Disney Parks, DHS has it and in many cases more so than the other parks.
