Disney Adds Labels to Themed Hand Dryers in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios Following Guest Confusion

While on a recent trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we noticed that the hand dryers found in the restrooms at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge now have new labels that designate exactly what they are.

Hand Dryers Now Labeled in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Hand Dryers with New Labels in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios

The Dyson hand dryers, which look weathered so they fit in-world with Star Wars, now have decals that read “Hand Dryer” and point to the opening where guests are to hold their hands up to activate the dryer. The font and styling does match the rest of Black Spire Outpost though.

It is unknown the exact reason as to why these decals have been added, though our best guess is that guests simply thought the devices were part of the theming and not something they could use. Now with the new labels, the true function of the dryers is plain to see, and hopefully this will avoid further confusion from guests.

How do you feel about this real-world context added to the immersive Star Wars land? Do you think it disrupts the theming? Or is it necessary to aid guests visiting? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.

  1. They already started ruining the immersion when they had to change the names of the meal offerings to include works like Beef even though the description made it clear what people were ordering. I’m glad I visited before they had to dumb it down
