Hollywood Land is a themed land at Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. The area is inspired by the 1930s Golden Age period of Hollywood and hosts attractions themed to this concept, including a backlot of a typical Hollywood studio. The land opened as Hollywood Pictures Backlot with the park in 2001.

The land's entrance once had towering studio gates that featured intricately carved elephants atop massive columns. The gateway was a tribute to the spectacular epics made throughout Hollywood history, especially pioneering director D. W. Griffith's 1916 silent film Intolerance. After the park's re-design, the archway sign, elephants and columns were removed, whereas the repainted pedestals remained.

Attractions include the Hyperion Theater, which opened with the park in 2001 and has hosted four productions, Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!, based on the Disney·Pixar film Monsters, Inc., which opened in 2006 as part of the resort's Happiest Homecoming on Earth, and the Red Car Trolley attraction, based on the Pacific Electric Railway, which runs through the streets of Hollywood Land and neighboring Buena Vista Street. Former attractions included Muppet*Vision 3D which opened with the park in 2001, and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror which opened on May 5, 2004, before being re-themed to Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! on May 27, 2017, which is set to become part of the new upcoming Avengers Campus in 2021.
