PHOTO REPORT: Hollywood Studios 9/14/16 (Studio Catering Co. Demo, PizzeRizzo, New Merchandise, ETC.)
A lot can happen in a week, including the erasing of structures that have stood for over 27 years. Meanwhile, PizzeRizzo nears completion and a plethora of new merchandise invades Disney’s Hollywood Studios in our latest photos report.
If you haven’t seen our video update this week on the expansion of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you should probably preface this report with a watch:
Backlot Demolition for Toy Story Land
Studio Catering Co. and the adjacent Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure have been leveled, leaving practically nothing between PIXAR Place and Muppets Courtyard.
While the Backlot Tour entrance was still standing on Sunday, it has since been demolished.
The Prop Shop is still being emptied before it is the next structure to get demolished in the coming weeks.
The Studio Catering Co. has been reduced to rubble.
This and That
I caught Betty Shambles by surprise…
Now she is ready for her close-up!
Not sure how long ago this happened, but Sunset Ranch Market got a new sign to match the recent refresh of the area.
A new Buzz Lightyear plush was recently released.
Work continues on the new PizzeRizzo in the Muppets Courtyard area.
This billboard was installed this week as the restaurant gets closer and closer to its yet to be announced opening date.
Over the last week, the windows were painted, lights were installed on the facade signage, and the Heckler Tomato was painted on.
In my last photo report, I showed that men’s MARVEL shirts were now available at Keystone Clothiers. Well, now there are a few ladies shirts available as well.
A Disney Parks exclusive Baymax mug is now available.
I guess you get happier as you drink more coffee…
A bit pricey, but it is a fairly large ceramic mug.
Some March Magic-esque character sports team mugs are now available. Here’s hoping we get some new sports team jerseys with these designs.
