New Aerial Construction Photos of Toy Story Land & Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Thanks to NearMap, we have a new aerial look at the construction of the two new, massive themed lands coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort. We begin with Toy Story Land, set to open this Summer…

To the left and bottom, we see Slinky Dog Dash, above it on the right is Alien Swirling Saucers, and north of that is Woody’s Lunchbox and the restroom facilities for the land. As you can see, there is just one “show scene” along the Slinky Dog Dash track featuring Rex and Jessie, meanwhile, the plots where other scenes would have gone just have some newly planted trees. At the very top center of the photo is the new entrance for Toy Story Midway Mania.

We can get a better look at the new Toy Story Mania entrance in the center right here.

From directly above, we can clearly see pathways that connect to the existing park up towards the top and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge towards the bottom.

A close-up of the Slinky Dog Dash building, including the “extra track” Andy didn’t use to build the ride that sits in a package near the center of the photo, sticking straight up into the sky.

Jessie and Rex along the Slinky Dog Dash track. They are statues and have no movement.

One last look at Toy Story Land. Below, concept art for comparison:

We now move on to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge…

In the upper left is the entrance to the land from Grand Avenue, through the tunnel. To the right is the massive show building for the “Battle Escape” attraction.

To the left is the main thoroughfare through the heart of Batuu, with the village and mountains off to the right. The mountains hide the two attraction show buildings from the view of guests.

This photos was taken from behind the “Battle Escape” show building.

Here we are directly behind the Millennium Falcon attraction.

Above is the show building for the Millennium Falcon attraction. The Falcon will sit on the ground in the center of the U-shapeddocking bay that makes up the main portion of the facade.

Another look at work taking place on “Battle Escape”.

This appears to be Black Spire Station, place to find spare parts for droids and vehicles.

A peek inside Battle Escape, showing the circular pre-show room that remains shrouded in mystery.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in 2019.
