Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been a hotbed of changes, refurbishments, and improvements over the last few days, so WDWNT Reporter Banks Lee headed out to the park to take photos of all of this activity:
There’s a lot closed
High School Musical 3 will be using this stage until it finally goes away to make way for Disney Channel Rocks
The railings around the Sorcerer’s Hat are being redecorated to provide nicer backdrops for character photos
Walls are up around the FASTPASS distribution for Voyage of the Little Mermaid. Could they finally be removing it?
Toy Story 3 posters are down and Tangled is in at the Magic of Disney Animation
Inside, a teaser poster for Brave has debuted
Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream is closed thru November for major changes
Rumors of a preview center type area being added to the exhibit are all but confirmed by these construction walls featuring upcoming attractions. Here’s Carsland for Disney’s California Adventure
New ships for the Disney Cruise Line
Mystic Manor for Hong Kong Disneyland
Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid for the Magic Kingdom. It will be interesting to see what models and concept art we see when One Man’s Dream returns
Lights are being installed for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights on the Streets of America
The original Star Tours is gone
No physical changes yet
See you in May…
Toy Story Midway Mania’s recent refurbishment added long gates to prevent guests and cast members from going where they shouldn’t
They create a trap, forcing guests to go into the vehicle
They are on the exit side as well, they just open the opposite direction
Great artwork on the orange shirt!
Happy Halloween in September!
