Hollywood Studios Closing Multiple Offerings January 4th To Make Way for Star Wars Land

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

With the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights concluding on Sunday, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be moving full speed ahead on clearing land for the upcoming expansion of the park to add both the Star Wars and Toy Story themed lands.


The Phineas and Ferb and Cars character meet and greets, as well as the nearby Cars merchandise cart and Joffrey’s coffee location near the Premier Theater will be shuttered on January 4th, 2016 to make way for the expansion. Early work on the removal of these two meet and greets and the Premier Theater will begin at that time. No word has yet been given on the removal of the Streets of America, the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” play area, or other nearby establishments rumored to be removed as part of the expansion.
