A Walt Disney Studios Welcome
Walt Disney Studios sort of has two welcoming figures inside its gates. Guests entering the Frontlot will see a lovely Sorcerer Mickey statue, and after passing through Studio 1, they come upon the main crux of the park, the Production Courtyard. This is where the park fans out--The Hub, if you will--though it mostly feels like the park has just begun. So even though this plaza functions as the heart of the park, the Partner Statues that greets guests exiting the studio becomes a second salutation. Beyond stand the Tower of Terror, the tram tour, and the beckoning of the Backlot and Toon Studios. But here by Walt and Mickey, it's nice to take a moment and savor the ambiance.
