The words of Michael Eisner on the opening of Disney’s Hollywood Studios were “The World you have entered was created by The Walt Disney Company and is dedicated to Hollywood—not a place on a map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream and wonder and imagine, a place where illusion and reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was—and always will be”. The above notion clearly illustrates the objective behind the creation of this theme park.
