The Great Movie Ride, Hollywood Studios

The Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios was originally sponsored by MGM. When the theme park opened it was originally named Disney-MGM Studios. Recently Disney worked a deal with Turner Classic Movies to sponsor the ride and the show was refurbished. I hadn’t experienced the new ride but I took the opportunity this trip to not only see the changes but cool off during a hot day at the park.

This ride is quite the challenge to photograph. Not only are you on a constantly moving vehicle, the lighting is not to promote pictures. I was finally able to capture the John Wayne scene but I struggled with the processing to get the color right. I know it might be a bit of a crutch but I ended up converting this image to B&W which I think works really well.
