MGM Studios offered a lot of behind the scenes stuff which was really neat. We got to see how the stunts are performed, some of the safety precautions taken and how the movies are put together.

Star Wars offered a virtual ride that made you feel like you were flying with Luke right into the valleys on the Death Star. Come on, you know you remember.

The streets all remind you of movie sets and you can see how they build in perspective and things can look a lot bigger then they are.

The car chase, motorcycle, truck, stunt man, etc. thrill show was amazing. In the chase scene the one car was going forward and the next minute speeding backwards. They showed us how they built an exact replica of the car except inside the driver was actually facing backward and it had 4 forward gears and 4 backward gears so when we saw it going backwards, it really wasn't. Sounds confusing but it was really cool.

On the lighter side we saw a live stage performance of Beauty and the Beast. The costumes where amazing and the actors very talented.

The behind the scenes show was interesting with lots of movie history and more stunts.

The evening performance included all kinds of entertainment from lights to floating eluminated barges with many of the Disney characters, lasers, fireworks, and more. During the last 15 minutes of the show it started to drizzle so we stayed but got soaked all the way through on the way to the parking lot. It was worth it and we dried out and slept soundly.
