Bright suns from Disney’s Hollywood Studios! It was another busy day as President’s Day weekend draws to a close. Let’s see what’s going on inside!

Even with the park opening at 8:00am, you have to get here pretty early if you want to be near the front of the crowd.

We love a view that includes The Chinese Theatre! This view is soon to be permanent, with the “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” stage show ending later this week.

Pro Tip: Get your coffee before you get to the park! Lots of guests were waiting for their morning cup of energy today.

The race to get a boarding group is on! All boarding groups were distributed in less than a minute, with groups 63 and above showing as backup.

In typical Batuu fashion, the line for Smugglers Run was immediately packed.

The mysterious off-brand merchandise has, along with the cooler weather, disappeared. Branded blankets have taken their place.

The Stormtroopers were out and about today looking for recruits! The recruitment process starts early.

The iconic Miss Piggy fountain was working great today! We love to see it!

This framed set of Papa Rizzo’s Original Apron absolutely cracked us up while we stopped for some water at PizzeRizzo.

My favorite store, looking as festive as always!

We absolutely love #SantaStitch, looking as cute as ever behind the counter.

Stage 1 Company Store is themed so well! This 3-D billboard is awesome.

Someday I hope to be as cool as this Mona Lisa portrait outside of Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano.

This mysterious green box has appeared in the pathway in front of Dockside Diner.

Get your elbows OFF THE TABLE!

This cute duck was taking a nap in Echo Lake. After getting up early to get a boarding group, we’re excited to do the same… just maybe not in Echo Lake.

We got to see some characters playing today in Toy Story Land!

The wait time for Alien Swirling Saucers was both 45 and 75 minutes… at the same time?

The Popsicle Wall is one of my all-time favorites! It’s a great place to get some sweet Instagram shots!

With Cast Member previews set to begin in a few days, we imagine it’s looking pretty close to done behind these doors. March 4th is right around the corner, are you excited?

The Ink & Paint collection has been splashing color all over the Disney Parks lately. This full display in Adrian & Edith’s Head to Toe has to be my favorite so far.

The backsplash on these displays is stunning!

This awesome Spring Break 2020 shirt has arrived in Walt Disney World. We found it in Mickey’s of Hollywood for $24.99.

Merchandise from Disney¬∑Pixar’s “Onward” has also started to roll in. We spotted some of the collection at Municiberg Gifts and Reel Vogue. You can also check out a preview of the film at Walt Disney Presents.

These adorable Easter socks are available at Once Upon a Time. They’re $14.99 each or $11.00 each if you buy two. We love a bargain!

This poster for “MODE: A Documentary” really had us wishing it was real. It would make an amazing Disney+ Original, don’t you think?

That wraps up our day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Thanks for joining us, Supers!
