We return to what’s left of Disney’s Hollywood Studios for our latest photo report, checking out the latest progress on all of the upcoming projects…

Hooray for Horizontal Construction

Work continues on the expansion and reconfiguration of the parking lot.

Meanwhile, land has been cleared and work has begun on the Disney Skyliner station that will be located just outside of the park.

The stage for Star Wars: A Galaxy Far Far Away is down while they work on the mobile stage for the show.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Celebrity 5 & 10 on Hollywood Boulevard is already a full-blown Christmas shop as of Friday the 13th. Makes sense…

The new line of Little Mermaid home goods has made its way to Florida. Check out the entire line here.

These awesome new Chip and Dale nutcrackers are available for $54.99 each.

A lot of the items from last year which did not have boxes now come in boxes for easier transport home.

I love the new decorations in the store which have a very 30’s vibe to them.

But then we are brought back to modern day by an ornament which has Mickey taking a selfie.

The new theme park related stockings are fantastic! All but one has been released already…

The one that is missing is the Hatbox Ghost from the Haunted Mansion. They retail for $27.99 each.

Construction

For a great overview of all of the ongoing construction, please check out our latest expansion update video below:

Work continues on the entrance to Toy Story Land…

I’m still dying to know what this weird tiny chunk of building will be…

Looking towards Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge construction.

Here we see the building for the Battle Escape attraction.

Here, we see the building that houses the Millennium Falcon attraction getting taller.

The chicken breast strips are now also an adult meal at ABC Commissary and they’re really fantastic for what they are.

Grand Avenue

Work continues on the very unfinished left side of Grand Avenue.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge rises in the background.

Here stands the tunnel that will transport guests to another planet.

More Holiday Spirit

It’s a Wonderful Shop has also stocked lots of new holiday decor items.

Including a new Hanukkah collection.

Echo Lake Refurbishment 

The refurbishment of Echo Lake continues, with the race on to have the Christmas decor up by November 9th.

That tunnel at the end of Grand Blvd. reminds me of the entrance to Toon town in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

I really want those Chip and Dale Nutcrackers but won’t be going down before the holidays. They aren’t on the Disney Store website. Is there any other way to order them?

There are some nutcrackers on the Shop Disney Parks app, not those at this time but maybe they will be on there in a little while.
