Housed in a re-creation of Hollywood’s famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater, The Great Movie Ride is, as the name suggests, a ride through some of the greatest movies Hollywood has filmed. You’ll ride in “moving theaters” (much like the ones in Ellen’s Energy Adventure at Epcot) through tributes to Busby Berkeley musicals, Singing in the Rain, Mary Poppins, James Cagney’s The Public Enemy, Clint Eastwood and John Wayne westerns, Alien, the Indiana Jones movies, Tarzan, Casablanca and The Wizard of Oz. Most of the films depicted in the ride were made or licensed by Disney’s former partner in the theme park, MGM. However, Disney continued to hold the rights to use these scenes in this ride, even though Disney had to drop the MGM brand from the park itself. Oh, and by the way, even when “something goes terribly wrong” for your tour guide, don’t give up hope. Don’t most Hollywood classics have a happy ending?
