Disney's Hollywood Studios opened as Disney-MGM Studios on May 1, 1989. Originally envisioned as an entertainment industry pavilion in Epcot, Disney expanded the plans into a full theme park to compete with the Universal Studios Florida theme park that was under development at the same time.

Once the home to several movie and television productions, including a "New Mickey Mouse Club" that launched the careers of Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling, and Christina Aguilera, all the studio production facilities in the park have closed. When MGM declined to renew the licensing deal that gave Disney the right to use its name, Disney renamed the park Disney's Hollywood Studios in January 2008. Today, the park is transforming again, as Disney has announced plans to open new lands based on Toy Story and Star Wars. No opening dates for those lands have been announced.
