PHOTO REPORT: Hollywood Studios 7/26/19 (Rainy Park Day, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Pins, and More Missing From Backlot Express)
Here in Florida we get really used to getting rained on every afternoon in the Summer. Less frequent are the dreary, drizzly rainy days. Today was one of those days. You see the park with new eyes when everything is slick with rain.
There’s light at the end of the tunnel (literally)!
The other entrance to Galaxy’s Edge (or more often, the exit) is in Toy Story Land.
This gates should swing open soon, as well.
They even thought ahead and put a secondary, smaller sign in place welcoming guests to Toy Story Land from Batuu.
I think I like Toy Story Land better in the rain. It scares away most of the people that are usually crammed in here.
They don’t do the Super Shindig when it’s raining too hard.
“Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” can also be delayed or canceled when the rain is too inhibitive.
I did run into some of the Storm Troopers from that show in Launch Bay during the hiatus, though. They seemed to be having a lot of fun with guests.
This one was making sure people only looked at the Imperial props and not the Rebel ones.
Speaking of Star Wars, a couple of fun new Star Wars pins released today.
This one is (I believe) the first in part of a series. I like the detail of the frame being the tunnel on Grand Avenue. I found this at several locations throughout the park; it’s a limited edition of 3500.
In addition to a couple other pins released today, we got the Star Tours pin from the Magic of Honor series. I’d been looking forward to this one.
In other merchandise news, I found this adorable Groot hat in the Celebrity 5 & 10.
I stumbled upon this open edition Minnie Mouse pin at the exit of Tower of Terror. In addition to being cute, the bottom half is also spring-loaded.
Give it a shake and… sproing!
In the Stage 1 Studio Store, near Muppet*Vision, I found this metal Magic Kingdom sign for sale. I guess Cinderella Castle is considered a Land now?
The ramp to the “lower lot” as I call it, a.k.a. where Toy Story Land is, is still closed.
