Amid a flurry of changes and closings at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida, one attraction has received added confidence in the form of a new partnership.  The Great Move Ride will see a refreshed pre-show and finale as part of a new strategic relationship with Turner Classic Movies, set to open to guests this coming Spring.

The ride already highlights some of the most famous moments from the history of film, and will now have a renewed celebration of classic movies.

The Great Movie Ride will integrate Turner Classic Movies' name and logo in the ride's marquee, as well as in the ride's banners, posters and other displays.  The queue area will feature new digital movie posters and the new pre-show will be hosted by Robert Osborne.  The film will provide "illuminating insights from the movies, some of which guests will experience during the ride."  Along with new classic movie montage in the finale, there will also be a classic movie themed photo opportunity at the exit.

As part of the new partnership between Disney and Turner Classic Movies, the Treasures from the Disney Vault series will be shown on the TCM channel.  Programming includes classic live-action Disney films and specials, along with episodes from series such as Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.
