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.

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.

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.

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.
