PHOTOS, VIDEO: New Parking Entrance Opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Today marked the long-awaited opening of the new guest car entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The former entrances on World Drive and Buena Vista Drive are now only for cast members and buses respectively.

The new entrance is accessed via a number of ramps emanating from Osceola Parkway, near the ESPN Wide World of Sports and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. Once nearing the toll plaza, the ubiquitous Purple Disney World signage turns teal to match the entrance color scheme.

The new toll plaza retains the Pan Pacific Auditorium architecture the park entrance area has been known for, one of the last vestiges of the Disney-MGM Studios at this point.

Take a full narrated ride from Osceola Parkeay to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in our video below:

The new entrance is part of a massive overhaul of the parking lot that has been underway for years at this point, finally reaching the final stages just ahead of next year’s opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Nice Drive! I imagine those yellow metal structures that lay directly in the path of the Skyliner’s cables are there so that when the cables are placed (presumably by helicopter) that vehicle traffic can still flow underneath. Possibly soon…?

Just a heads up warning to people arriving to Hollywood Studios by bus: I’m not sure how long it has been set up this way but the hike from the buses to the entrance of the Studios has become significantly longer. In fact, we joked that when you park that far out they usually tram you in. Just be prepared :)

What no cupcakes, construction walls or projections? I think people need to eased into the new theme of the studios before they pay $25 to park in a construction zone. Do the red flags represent the number of open rides?
