Leaving Their Mark at the Studios

It’s Studios Awareness Week thanks to StudiosCentral, and today for our Hollywood Studios Wednesday we’re taking a look at more of the detail that makes the Studios comparable to the real life versions of what you see in the park. The Chinese Theater and the prints in front of it represent what makes Hollywood, well, Hollywood. The Studios is all about classic Hollywood and the films and stars of the time.

Just like the original Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ version of the Chinese Theater has a grand courtyard area covered in little pieces of history. The original Theater has around 200 footprints, handprints, wand-prints, and even nose-prints to celebrate some of the greatest stars of Hollywood. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios you’ll find something very similar. Various actors have visited the Studios since it opened in 1989 and have left behind something to remember them by. From musicals to animation to puppetry, take a minute to survey the courtyard and see who you can find.

    The hand prints here are really cool to see, especially since many of them are of people that have passed away since.

      This is so true! Makes them mean even more. Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out today’s post! Love everything over at StudiosCentral!

    Even though I’ve seen them all a million times, I always enjoy checking out all the handprints. Good stuff…
