PHOTO REPORT: Hollywood Studios 2/4/16 (New Meet & Greet, Pizza Planet, New Merchandise, ETC.)

I recently visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see the latest progress on the expansion of the park, so here’s some photos of what I found of interest while I was there:

Based on the style of comedy, we’re guessing this will become a Muppets restaurant

  1. Can you tell me if any of the characters that were in Animation area are still in HS since Star Wars Launch Bay opened? I thought I read somewhere that Sorcerer Mickey is somewhere but I can’t remember where they said he was. I know Baymax went to EPCOT; are the Incredibles anywhere anymore? We are coming in 18 days and those are some of my daughter’s favorites.
    THanks!

      Like you said, Baymax is now at Epcot, however, without Hiro. The Incredibles (Mr., Mrs., and Frozone) still do their dance party in Tomorrowland and although it is not a photo-op, you can still get a photo with them as long the characters are okay with it. Sorcerer Mickey is meeting right outside of Pixar Place in the Soundstage that used to house the Legend of Jack Sparrow experience, right next to Toy Story Mania. Minnie has a meet and greet in her pick dress right outside Launch Bay with the rest of the Disney Junior characters.
