Are you going to see the Rock the Night Fireworks Spectacular tonight at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  There's definitely a best place to view them from if you want to enjoy the entire vantage point.

Don't let the name fool you, the Rock the Night Fireworks Spectacular is the same fireworks that Hollywood Studios shot off a few weeks ago for New Years Eve (minus the New Years Eve countdown), and what many guests don't know is that while a majority of the fireworks are shot off behind the Sorcerer's Hat, there are other fireworks shot off up and down Hollywood Boulevard.

Ideally, you want to stand on Hollywood Boulevard, close to the park entrance.  I know it seems counter-intuitive to be far from the stage near...

Disney has announced that there will be a special fireworks show on January 19, 2012 at Disney's Hollywood Studios called, "Rock the Night Fireworks Spectacular" at 7pm.

No word on what exactly the fireworks will be compromised of, although it's likely it will be similar to the special fireworks seen on New Years Eve and July Fourth.  Given the name, it wouldn't surprise us to see Mulch, Sweat and Shears be a part of the show, although that's speculation.

Keep in mind that Fantasmic! is currently under refurbishment through February 12, 2012.

UPDATE: Some attractions will close early due to the fireworks. Toy Story Midway Mania will close at 5, Great Movie Ride and One Man...

Hard to believe that 2011 is almost finished but we thought it would be fun to look over the biggest stories of 2011 related to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  See if your list matches ours!

5. Comedy Warehouse to perform shows in Hollywood Studios

It's pretty recent news (as in it's still happening now), but I do think the return of Comedy Warehouse is a big deal.  The downfall of Pleasure Island at Downtown Disney as a whole has been a point of contention for many Walt Disney World fans and the temporary return of the Comedy Warehouse shows has become the surprise hit of the holiday season.  Let's just hope this isn't the last time we see the Comedy Warehouse gang!

Disney's Imagineers have been quietly working on resort-wide enhancements known as "NextGen" that look for ways to improve elements of Walt Disney World with technology.  Disney recently filed paperwork with the county to improve upon nearly a dozen attracitons with NextGen, including four from Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The paperwork filed describes much of the work as "queue modification" and lists a project completion date of October 1, 2012.

The attractions at Hollywood Studios slated to be improved by NextGen include
