Hollywood Studios' Harbor Attack in Backlot Tour

To help myself motivated to share photos about my Disney Visits, I come up with this 'To Do" list. Once a week, I will be sharing photos anything related to Disney and since it is random, I could be sharing Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios in Disney World. For now, let's travel together in Hollywood Studios.

One of my favorite attractions here is the Backlot Tour which has 2 phases: Harbor Attack and Tram Tour. This attraction is located in the Streets of America. When you visit Hollywood Studios, do not forget to get your map guide, read it and plan your time. What you see here is the stage and the water splashing is part of the special effects and pyrotechnic show being demonstrated.

Before the show, they will find volunteers from the crowd to do the stunts live. If you want to have an exciting visit to Disney, you should volunteer. Your role is like in the movie and so far, it's been really safe and exciting! The volunteers will be given a short briefing and safety measures then, they will be given a protective suit. What they do during the live show will be recorded, edited and the video will be shown to the monitor before the crowd moves on to the tram tour. The comparison od=f seeing the live action and the edited video is pretty amazing! The best of Movie Magic!

Shown here are the volunteers wearing the blue suit. They were introduced to the crowd who were watching at the observation deck. Here's my advice : Don't lean too close to the railings! LOL.

The one on the red shirts are Disney Cast Members. This attraction is basically showing the guests as to how raging sea battles are being filmed.

The volunteer this time was a lady. I thought, oh my goodness, will she be able to withstand the tons of water poured on her direction after the director shouts action? I saw this attraction for the nth time and yap, she did ... safely!

I do not know if I have the guts to volunteer. Maybe if  I am with a group, perhaps I will.

The best seat for me is right here, straight from the shed on the stage. This attraction is exciting because you can feel the heat of the pyrotechnic and if you are not paying attention, you in the audience will be wet with water splashes.

When Disney has events for the day, expect that the crowd will be like this. The wait time was 45 minutes, outchy! We really do not care because, on this visit, we went to only 4 attraction and we head home. Thank goodness for our yearly pass, we take our lazy time. Thank you for stopping by.
