Disneys Hollywood Studios® is based on a Hollywood-type town with a variety of working actors and movie sets. When the park opened, real filming occurred in the soundstages and sets at the park, but many of those have since been renovated into other attractions. A few of the sets still remain and serve as a wonderful and fun backdrop for photos.

Everyone loves visiting a movie set. Line your family up in the middle of the street, zoom out for a wide shot, but walk in to your family and frame the photo so youre close to them but can still see the street behind them.
