PHOTOS, VIDEO: Aerial View as Demolition Rages On at Hollywood Studios for New Star Wars & Toy Story Lands

Demolition continues at Disney’s Hollywood Studios as the park prepares for the construction of the Toy Story and Star Wars themed lands that will be added in the next few years. Today, we take you high above the demolition yet again to see the latest progress on the project:


The Premier Theater is gone, most of the Lights, Motors, Action! backdrop is history, and most of the land behind Toy Story Midway Mania is pretty clear. The entrance on Wodl Drive has lost a few lanes already, but no word yet on when they might actually close it.



Catastrophe Canyon was situated behind the LMA seating area, but as you can see there are little traces of it left.


Since I know we will be asked, let me tell you that the lights you are seeing in the picture are reflecting from inside of the helicopter…


Not much of the Streets of America has been touched at this point.


There is still a bit of demolition to do, but it should wrap up before Summer’s end. We expect vertical construction of the two lands to start in the Fall.


So, if you would like to see the progress with a little motion to it, we also have a video from the helicopter to share with you:

Thanks to our own Nick LoCicero for the photos and video!

  1. I don’t see the airplane anymore, I must have missed that from prior reports. Where do you think they stored it? Do you think it will have a place in the new expansion?

  2. I’m sure these are expensive, but please keep the photo reports of the demolition coming. I find this stuff fascinating. Thanks for doing these and posting them!
