Does Hollywood Studios Have Two Entrances?
If you'll be arriving by car to Disney's Hollywood Studios you'll be surprised to know that there are in-fact two different entrances to this theme park!
Unlike every other Walt Disney World theme park which only have one entrance you can drive to, Hollywood Studios has two separate entrances.
You'll find one entrance off of Victory Way which is in close proximity to Disney's BoardWalk, Caribbean Beach Resort, and the Art of Animation Resort.
The Victory Way entrance is generally regarded as the main entrance to Hollywood Studios. If you follow the directional signs posted on Disney property, this is the entrance you will be led to.
The second entrance to Hollywood Studios is located off of Osceola Parkway and known as the Galactic Starcruiser entrance. This is because you'll typically only find yourself at this entrance if you follow signs for the Galactic Starcruiser.
Disney does its best to direct everyone to the Victory Way, or "main" entrance, with all signs, directions and addresses leading there while the second entrance remains more of a secret!
Regardless of which entrance you drive to, you'll still end up in the same parking area, but there are some pros and cons to consider before deciding which Hollywood Studios entrance to utilize!
How Do You Get To The Entrance Of Hollywood Studios?
If you're already on Walt Disney World property then the best way to get to the entrance of Hollywood Studios is to keep a close eye on the big blue direction signs that are along the roadways.
Depending on which area of Disney World you're coming from will dictate which of the two main roads you'll take to get to the main entrance of Hollywood Studios: Buena Vista Drive or World Drive.
From the EPCOT Resort Area or Disney Springs Area you'll likely want to get on Buena Vista Drive and follow the signs to Hollywood Studios which will take you onto Victory Way.
Once you get onto Victory Way you're a very short drive to the main entrance of Hollywood Studios.
From the Magic Kingdom area you'll take World Drive to as your primary route and then turn onto Osceola Parkway or Buena Vista Drive for a short bit before finding yourself on Victory Way towards the Hollywood Studios Entrance.
Animal Kingdom is a slightly different route. You'll take Osceola Parkway which leads directly out from the park for just a short distance before seeing signs to Hollywood Studios that will lead you onto Victory Way.
We recommend always using a navigation app like Google Maps or Apple Maps to assist with this drive. Just enter the address below for quick navigation to the Victory Way Hollywood Studios main entrance.

The Galactic Starcruiser entrance is a bit more challenging to get to and requires you to get onto Osceola Parkway heading west.
From most of the Walt Disney World the Galactic Starcruiser is a bit challenging to get to as it requires you to take Victory Way (passing the main entrance) and onto Osceola Parkway. If you're coming to Hollywood Studios from somewhere off Disney property then you'll have a much easier time accessing this entrance as Osceola Parkway is a main road in and out of Walt Disney World.
Like the Victory Way main entrance, we recommend following the signs on Disney property towards the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser as it's quite tricky to navigate to otherwise.
The easiest way to get to the Galactic Starcruiser entrance of Hollywood Studios is by navigating to the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser hotel (address below). You'll arrive at a toll booth for Hollywood Studios before arriving at the hotel to pay for parking. From here you'll navigate into the Hollywood Studios parking lot instead of the hotel!

Which Hollywood Studios Entrance Is The Best?
Deciding which Hollywood Studios entrance to use will generally come down to what area of Walt Disney World or Orlando you're traveling to Hollywood Studios from.
If you'll be coming to Hollywood Studios from anywhere on Walt Disney World property, including theme parks or hotels, then you're going to want to use the Victory Way main entrance.
This entrance is by far the most accessible and easiest to navigate to from any location at Disney. You'll generally arrive at Hollywood Studios with the easiest and fastest drive by planning to arrive via the Victory Way main entrance.
The Galactic Starcruiser entrance is going to be better if you're not already on Walt Disney World property and arriving from Osceola Parkway.
You'll likely be arriving from Osceola Parkway if you're coming to Disney from popular nearby locations in east Orlando (Celebration, Kissimmee, 192) or from the I4 area (Championsgate, Reunion).
Arriving to Disney property from any of these areas will likely make the Galactic Starcruiser entrance a better destination for you.
