Hollywood Boulevard was packed with guests early on, making their way to the next attraction. Getting across the street to the shops was a battle, but we made it!

The views on Sunset today were unmatched! We made our way down to take a ride on Tower of Terror before realizing the wait time was 120 minutes shortly after park open. We opted for the coffee line instead.

Not much change has been happening at Roundup Rodeo BBQ since our discovery of the large pencil. There appear to be two new metal posts installed on either side of the entrance sign, but it’s not clear what these are for just yet.

On the other side of the shop, we found a few more new resort-exclusive pieces. A hat, scarf, and this woven bag are among the newest additions to the resort’s merchandise collection.

We took a walk outside the resort and noticed some refurbishment announced for the Bocce Ball court area. The green turf is peeling and badly distressed, a common theme we’ve been noticing around Walt Disney World as of late.
