Hollywood Land offers attractions and shopping that are inspired by California's (and Disney's) contribution to television and cinema. Visually, the district is themed as a studio back lot with sets, including an urban street scene, soundstages, and a central street with shops and restaurants that depict Hollywood's golden age.

As with most of California Adventure, Hollywood Land (originally known as Hollywood Pictures Backlot) has not been immune to refurbishment. The new red trolleys run from Buena Vista Street to here, and a host of further enhancements are on the drawing board.
