Misconception About Hollywood Studios

A common misconception is that you need to like Star Wars in order to enjoy the park.

Although the area itself (Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge), along with the rides are specifically themed to Star Wars, you don't have to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy it.

The area and rides do a great job explaining what is going on, so that someone unfamiliar with Star Wars, and a Star Wars fanatic can both enjoy it.

Additionally, this is only one area of the park, as there are eight other areas available besides Star Wars.
