Our latest photo report brings us back to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see the latest work on the two major themed-lands being added to the park, as well as on a number of smaller projects. Let’s head on in…
Welcome to Hollywood!
Great Balls of Fire was playing on my radio while I was pulling in, which just made we wish that I had an ADR for the Sci-Fi-Fi Dine-In…
There is a lot of ground being ripped out around the perimeter of the park to run some new utility related pipes and wiring.
The large cranes towards the back of the park are quite visible from the parking lot.
The current times guide for Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
For a park that needs dining capacity, they don’t often keep many of the larger establishments open late.
Many more benches were installed around this planter and the roasted nuts cart has returned in a new location.
Toy Story Land
Work continues on the Toy Story themed land for the park, with dirt being moved just behind Toy Story Midway Mania at the moment.
You could make a little flip book of the next few pictures if you would like.
The desolate alley between Toy Story Mania and the former Jack Sparrow attraction offers a glimpse at the building for the Slinky Dog roller coaster, Slinky Dog Dash.
You can see it better in our last aerial flyover video:
Dirt obscures the view behind the gate.
This and That
Billboards for Beauty and the Beast and Born in China up behind the Great Movie Ride.
Sonny Burbank greeting guests outside of the Tower of Terror.
We enjoyed a lunch at Fairfax Fair consisting of the salad and a giant baked potato.
The Fantasia projection in the Great Movie Ride has finally been switched to digital HD. This was the last screen in the ride to still utilize physical film.
Additional signage was added outside of Red Carpet Dreams to make sure that guests know who is meeting there.
The remote control Mouse Droid is finally available, we found them at Tatooine Traders. They retail for $54.99 each.
It’s so nice to have a Tower of Terror…
Disney’s Hollywood Studios logo merchandise is now available inside Tower Hotel Gifts.
Guests can purchase a K2SO MagicBand at Star Wars Launch Bay.
A set of Darth Vader and Stormtrooper hand towels are now on sale.
It is $22.99 for the set.
The Darkroom and Cover Story are closed until March for refurbishment.
I took some pictures of the interiors before the closed as it is likely both shops will look quite different after they reopen.
Guests can meet Donald Duck outside of Sid’s currently.
Inside of Sid’s, guests will find the PhotoPass service center temporarily.
Star Wars Land
Work continues on the Star Wars themed land as the brick wall behind MuppetVision 3-D is now being torn down.
When will the ice cream fall?
