Work continues on two massive themed lands as a bevy of modest options prepare to open in the not-to-distant future at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. PizzeRizzo is nearing completion, the Dr. Strange preview has finally opened, and something else is brewing at One Man’s Dream in our latest photo report.
Welcome to Hollywood
The projection towers for Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular are indeed being repainted as the blue tower is already completed.
The beige tower still awaits a new paint scheme. I’m not sure these make the towers look any better, but at least someone is trying.
Hollywood Goes Rogue
Rogue One merchandise can be found throughout the park at various locations.
A Rogue One poster was also installed at the entrance of Star Wars Launch Bay.
A bevy of new D-Tech on Demand phone cases are available with Rogue One designs at Launch Bay.
Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame
Walls are up at the Academy of Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame. Speculation is that this is being removed.
Doctor Stranger Things
While the Doctor Strange preview has opened, the rumored meet and greet has yet to materialize. Could this be a model of an upcoming project or something else?
Doctor Strange signage can be found all around the surrounding area.
Safe D Begins with Outlet Covers
Thankfully, someone realized that the Studio Store Coloring Station was dangerous, so outlet covers were installed.
The Writer’s Stop Closes
As we previously reported, The Writer’s stop is now permanently closed.
Streets of Rage
If you missed it, a great look at the Star War and Toy Story Land construction sites is offered in this week’s expansion update video:
Hurricane Matthew forced Disney to remove some netting and tarps around the construction areas this week, allowing us a better view of the construction of Star Wars land.
Moving down towards Muppets Courtyard, there isn’t much left to see.
The fire escapes off of the New York facades all lay in a pile just behind the walls.
Work on PizzeRizzo continues, with the sign now appearing weathered.
Toy Story Land Construction
Meanwhile, a trip down to the old Jack Sparrow queue offers a look at what will be an entrance to Toy Story Land.
The old Prop Shop is now completely demolished.
We have to wonder how much longer this tree will be left standing.
This and That
Some Dr. Strange merchandise available at Mickey’s of Hollywood.
There is a Jack Skellington cupcake available at Sunset Ranch Market. Be sure to check out our review of the carrot cake treat.
