Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show started in Disney Hollywood Studios in 2005, as part of the 50 year celebration of Disneyland opening. It was originally a show in Disneyland Paris. When this attraction first came to Walt Disney World, we were in Disney that summer. My son to be, (if you haven’t read his story, go over to Growing Up Disney  and take a look) loved cars and everything to do with them, so of course we had to go see this stunt car show. We all liked it and I think it still registers as one of his favorite Magical Experiences from our first trip to Disney together. This show is not really an attraction per se, but it does have a Fantastic Finish. This past week I wrote about some of the Fantastic Finishes in the Magic Kingdom. Throughout the rest of the Walt Disney World Resort, there are other attractions that have Fantastic Finishes like the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show. Some of the attractions have calm endings, some wet and some you need to recover from, but over in Disney Hollywood Studios, not only are the Finishes Fantastic, but like the stunt show, they are Explosive! Today’s Unknown Magic is the Explosive! Endings in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

If you have never seen the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, I will not ruin the show for you, but as I said this ending is Explosive! All of the action that takes place during the rest of the show culminates with an exciting chase scene that ends with pyrotechnics and loudness. If you go with younger children, you may need to have them cover their ears as the car comes out of the big building. If you have a child that loves cars this is a really great place to create a Magical Experience.

The Children may also have to cover their ears throughout the show at the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular. This show features many explosions as they retell the story of the Indiana Jones’ Saga. They do ask for volunteers from the audience for this show, you may get lucky enough to be in the show here.

Another place where the ending is awesome and kind of Explodes with sound and sights is at the end of the Great Movie Ride. If you haven’t been on this attraction, the ride winds through some of the greatest movies of all time. Everything from the Wizard of Oz, to the Alien Saga is represented. There are two different versions of this ride, but both end up at the same place, in front of a huge movie screen, kind of like a very large drive-in movie screen. When both groups that went through the attraction get here they stop your ride vehicle and starting with what seems like the beginning of movie making, show you clips of movies from the last hundred years or so. It is very neat not
 only to see the movies they are showing, but to hear people try to guess which movies they are and who the actors are. This is one of my wife’s Magical Experiences as she likes to see the movies and actors at the end of this ride.

The best explosion in the Disney Hollywood Studios may take place at the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, but the funniest is at Muppet Vision 3-D. The show moves along with the one character being told that he is in the way and throughout the show all he is trying to do is help. He gets very upset and decides he will leave the show. As the other Muppets try to find him, they think they come under attack, at this pointy the whole show Explodes into Mayhem and the Muppet Theatre get a little redecoration. There are bombs and cannon blasts and a whole lot of craziness, but in the end, everyone come
out of it ok. At the very end of the show, after the biggest cannon goes over your head, look behind you at the back wall of the theatre for a special Unknown Magic that many people miss.

So, now you know, there are not just Fantastic Finishes in Disney Hollywood Studios, there are Explosive! Endings that can help your family to have Magical Experiences.
