    Is the "Singing in the Rain" umbrella lamppost still somewhere in Hoolywood Studios?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shari! It’s nice to see you here again.

    One of my most vivid memories from my very first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is standing in the Streets of America section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and being completely charmed. I grew up watching classic movies with my dad every Sunday afternoon, and it was so enchanting to step right into the ambience and “street-mosphere” I had seen on the screen at home.

    The Singing in the Rain umbrella photo opportunity was located in this section of the park, and I am so sad that I didn’t take the opportunity to capture this iconic photo, especially because Singing in the Rain is one of my all-time favorites. Sadly, the Streets of America have closed to make way for new attractions, and the umbrella lamppost can no longer be found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    If you’re looking for a dose of the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood, my favorite place to find it is with a visit to the Hollywood Tower Hotel. While the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction is known for its spine-tingling, creepy storyline and the exhilarating drops on the ride, it is also a fully-realized, gorgeous Hollywood hotel, with so many touches throughout the queue. My stomach doesn’t love the attraction itself, but I visit every time because I love the creepy, classic vibes of the hotel. 

    I also highly recommend a visit to Walt Disney Presents at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Inside, you’ll be able to explore 100 years of artifacts from Walt Disney’s early life, the growth of The Walt Disney Company, and the history of the Disney theme parks worldwide. It’s totally fascinating – I love seeing Walt’s desk, and being able to look at tiny models of the parks makes my DisNerd heart so happy. It’s a great, and often-overlooked, way to appreciate and learn about the history of Disney’s movies and legacy.

    I hope you find yourself laughing at clouds and having the most glorious feeling while you’re visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, Shari! 

    Have a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day,
