So yesterday I realized that Walt Disney Studios in Paris is pretty much just as good as Disney Hollywood Studios (take this statement as a backhanded compliment). Why? Because if you actually compare the parks side-by-side, their offerings are almost exactly the same. Here is a little comparison table showing the DHS attractions and enterntainment and their DHS counterparts:
The Great Movie Ride - Not in WDS, but there's Cinemagique, which even if a movie, is overall a fresher experience than the shadow of its former self the Great Movie Ride has become
Star Tours - Not in WDS, but literally NEXT DOOR, within a kick-*** themed land and with a way nicer queue. Nobody cares about the upgrades in DHS anyhow as it is essentially still an 80's mall simulator.
The American Idol Experience - Meh. WDS has Stitch Live! and Armageddon, the Special Effects make up for it.
Muppet*Vision 3D - An outdated show with 3/4ths of its special effects broken. Animagique makes up for it.
Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show - WDS had it first.
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: Movie Set Adventure - WDS luckily has none "Does, Anyone Remember This Movie Anyhow? Set Adventure" playgrounds.
Studio Backlot Tour - WDS has it, and both are lame.
Toy Story Midway Mania! - WDS doesn't have it, but it has the brand new Ratatouille and Toy Story Playland (which both make up for TSMM along as for the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast stage shows.)
Disney Junior - WDS has it.
The Magic of Disney Animation - WDS has it.
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster - WDS has it. Considerably underthemed but it does.
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror - WDS has it.
Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! - Not in WDS, but WDS has Crush's Coaster which is phenomenal, so it makes up for Indiana Jones every other little offering (like Jedi Academi).
Fantasmic!- Not in WDS, but the park next door has Disney Dreams which makes up for it (it is sincerely one of the best nighttime shows Disney has ever made!)
So with all being said, WDS only needs a nighttime show and a oversized sorcerer's hat to be just like DHS. I am very sarcastic in writing this article, and my point is that DHS needs to step up in its game and go through a DCA-like makeover. WDS has a very "concrete" theming (pun intended), but sincerely DHS is a mess of 90's studio theming with things completely out of place (like Pixar Place).
