Grand Avenue at Disney's Hollywood Studios is Just Queue Space to Enter Star Wars Land

Grand Avenue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is Just Queue Space to Enter Star Wars Land

Many have been asking, besides the Baseline Tap House, what is the purpose of the Grand Avenue area at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? It’s a fairly big parcel and nothing more than this bar and lounge has been announced for it. What else is going in there? Well, the answer is the only dedicated queue space ever built for a land.

Based on the absolutely monstrous demand that there is to see Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, this giant street will act as a queue just to enter the area. Guests will be able to exit to Grand Avenue or Toy Story Land, but entry to Toy Story Land seems unlikely for the opening months (maybe even years) of the Star Wars themed land. This info comes directly from an Imagineer working on the Florida version of the Galaxy’s Edge project.

So yes, there will be a theme park land at Hollywood Studios that is just queue space and a bar essentially.

While Grand Avenue opens this Fall, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will not be completed until mid-to-late-2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

How does the current Star Tours fit into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge? I can’t figure out how this fits into the updated land, but would be very surprised if they just closed it down – without somehow integrating the current star tours ride into the new land?

The general consensus is that it will be rethemed, so the ride system will be reused. No word as to what the new theme will be. Just not Star Wars!

if Disney was smart. and i know its not their IP. but removing the At-At and other star wars themed parts, and make it a Stranger Things attraction. Instead of a star tour, you get to ride along with the boys in search of the Demogoron

We won’t let them build a parking garage and a bridge. Queue for a land? Dream on ✨

DHS’ Star Wars Land won’t have the backwoods entrance like at Disneyland from Critter Country, so the land will actually be a little less grand. It’s sort of like MK’s Pirates that’s missing 5 minutes of dark caverns. It’s amazing how Disney World has tons of space yet still ration the land in odd ways.

Am I reading this right – is the street along those 1920-1930s style buildings going to be the queue area to Star Wars Land?! Seems like a pretty rough segue between the two cultures.

Still two years away from opening.

Don’t lose sleep just yet. I’m sure they’ll figure something out.
