The Great Movie Ride
Celebrity Hand and Footprints

Disney's Hollywood Studios


At the end of Hollywood Boulevard, dead center, stands a magnificent reproduction of the famous Mann's Chinese Theater, home to The Great Movie Ride.

In front of the theater, many celebrities have left their handprints or footprints in cement, in much the same way as has been done at the original theater. The following is the current (as of February 2014) complete list of the hand/footprints at the location, in alphabetical order, thanks to Disney Historian and AllEars.Net feature writer Jim Korkis:
