Bright suns from Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Can that Batuuan greeting still be used even when the sun isn’t out yet? We arrived early to grab a boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance — and we were successful! While we wait until our boarding group is called, let’s check out the rest of the park.
First thing this morning, the masses made their way to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. We just followed the flow of people.
We appreciate that this Cast Member from Toydarian Toymaker allowed this tiny Porg to roost atop his hat.
Over in Toy Story Land, Woody and his pals retired their festive apparel in favor of their signature looks.
While Christmas has passed for the characters, holiday decorations are still hung throughout Andy’s backyard.
New signage has appeared at the Chinese Theatre for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
The new signs are cover in yellow decal stickers, but we were able to use our super sleuth skills to see the words “FastPass” and “Standby.”
Over at Echo Lake, the Christmas tree still stands.
But our beloved dinosaur, Gertie, has already lost her Santa hat.
Not much progress has happened on the exterior of the upcoming Mickey Shorts Theater since our last update. This isn’t surprising, since we expect the majority of this project to affect the interior of the building.
Throughout the park, we noticed that the kitschy, vintage-inspired holiday statues have been removed.
The teacup with creepy children dressed in candy-striped unitards has gone away for the season. We guess the terrifying, tiny hybrid elf-kids need to rest up in order to haunt our dreams next Christmas.
Star Wars: The Black Series Action Figures for The First Order were spotted at Star Wars Launch Bay. The set retails for $69.99.
The front of the box is fancy and opens up to reveal the action figures.
The back of the box has a short description of every included action figure.
On Hollywood Boulevard, the shop windows are no longer holiday-themed.
In The Darkroom, we found an Under the Sea Coral pet spirit jersey to match the human version. It costs $36.99.
Slinky Dog has been added to the “Toy Story” Disney Parks exclusive PEZ dispensers. We found this one in Celebrity 5 & 10 for $4.79.
Across the street at Mickey’s of Hollywood, this fun red tee almost tempts us to join the Dark Side.
Famous Darth Vader quotes and phrases are written to form his iconic helmet. It’s $24.99.
We also found this extremely soft long-sleeve tunic top featuring The Child (a.k.a., Baby Yoda) in Keystone Clothiers.
We have no qualms about more merchandise inspired by “The Mandalorian”. The gray top has a shorter seam on the sides, splitting the front and back. It’s $39.99.
Mickey fanny packs were all over the park. The fanny pack is red and black, inspired by Mickey and his classic outfit. The red section of the bag has two white circles just like the buttons on Mickey’s signature pants.
The back of the bag has Mickey ears. The zippers are Mickey gloves and the top of the bag is embroidered with the old school Walt Disney World logo. The buckle is bright yellow to match Mickey’s shoes. It costs $29.99.
We are here for any merchandise from “The Emperor’s New Groove.” We came across this two-pin set at Sunset Ranch Pin and Souvenirs. One pin is Kuzco pointing to himself and the other is a sly looking Yzma. The pin set is $15.99.
We also found a “The Fox and the Hound” pin set. It has two pins, one of Copper and the other of Tod. Both characters are in playful poses. It’s $15.99.
We decided to swing by Grand Avenue, mostly to check-in on Muppet Vision 3D after the recent announcement that the attraction will be closed for refurbishment. The refurbishment is for a short period of time and is focused on updating the building, rather than the show itself. No need for alarm!
Randomly in Stage 1 Company Store, we found a cute Disneyland backpack. Yes… you read that correctly. Disneyland.
The bag is clearly covered in Disneyland’s signature “D.” Why is it here? How did it get here? We may never know the answer. It’s $54.99.
Well that’s all from us now. We’re off to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Keeping checking WDW News Today for all of the latest Disney Parks news!
