May 1, 2014 marks the 25th Anniversary of the opening of Disney's Hollywood Studios, formerly known as Disney/MGM Studios.
Near the central hub you can find this statue and a plaque that has the remarks made by Michael Eisner on May 1, 1989.
The plaque reads:
The World you have entered was created by the Walt Disney World 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.
