Last year I encouraged bloggers, Twitterers, podcasters and everyone else in the Disney Internet community to take some time during the week of June 14-18, 2010 to recognize and celebrate the love we all have for Disney's Hollywood Studios. I was blown away by the outpouring of support and really relished in the great posts I saw.
Therefore, I'm proud to announce the second annual "International Hollywood Studios Awareness Week", which will take place June 13 - 17, 2011. Like last year, I'm challenging my fellow bloggers, podcasters and everyone who reads this column to take at least one day that week next month and publish something about Disney's Hollywood Studios. I think it's important to celebrate all of the theme parks in Walt Disney World and by celebrating one, we raise awareness about all of them in the big picture.
If you're trying to figure out something to write about, the good news is there's a lot that's new this year in Disney's Hollywood Studios that is worth writing about. You have topics like the brand new Star Tours attraction as well as Star Wars Weekends. But you also have new restaurant entrees, character experiences and many more sublte changes that have come to the park. There's plenty to write about, even if you're just revisiting a favorite attraction.
I also want to emphasize that International Hollywood Studios Awareness Week isn't limited to those who run websites. If you're just on Twitter, Facebook or if you're just on your favorite Disney World site's message board, strike up a conversation about Disney's Hollywood Studios and get others involved. If there's one thing we Disney World fans love, it's talking about Walt Disney World. So take some time June 13-17 and tweet about why you love the Tower of Terror or start a poll on the message board you frequent asking which Hollywood Studios restaurant they prefer.
Regardless of what you're writing about, if you're mentioning this on Twitter, be sure to use the hash tag of #DHSAwareness in your tweets so everybody can follow along with what's being written.
Here were just a few of the great entries from 2010's International Hollywood Studios Awareness Week so you can get a better idea of what others have done and use that for inspiration for this year's entries!
So there you have it, a challenge for all of you to mark your calendars on June 13-17, 2011 and do something that week to raise awareness of how great Hollywood Studios truly is. I can't wait to read some of these postings, entries and tweets and thank you in advance for helping everyone out!
