in Disney's Hollywood Studios, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

Welcome back to another trip around the World in Disney Tidbits. Today we are checking in on Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see what is happening in this ever-changing park.

When we arrived a storm was in progress and the security measure that we are usually used to had switched up quite a bit. No bag check or metal detector walk through in the usual area.

The bag check was instead being done underneath the coverage of the main entrance.

Typical Florida weather with cloudy skies.

Hollywood Studios is now the designated Star Wars park and you notice that really quick with the lightsabers on sale as soon as you walk into the park.

Welcome to the streets of Hollywood.

It was a pretty slow day in the park, this summer season in general has seen lower crowds.

We decided to make a visit to Mickey and Minnie’s new home, Red Carpet Dreams. I heard a lot about the posters in the queue “coming alive” but I only spotted one of them doing so. You can see our experience in the video below.

Next up we decided to check out the new Pete’s Dragon preview at One Man’s Dream. The preview includes a introduction by the movie’s star Bryce Dalls Howard and an extended clip from the movie. Can’t say that any of us were especially excited about this movie but this preview really changed our minds. The movie looks to be full of heart and some amazing graphics, make sure you make a visit to this preview.

Elena of Avalor merchandise has also debuted in the park. Disney is quite clearly hoping this will be their next big Disney Junior star.

After a trip on Tower of Terror make sure you take a peek at the very cool themed shop windows at the exit.

Star Wars themed drinks are still in hot demand inside Hollywood Studios.

We ended our nights with the ‘Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular’ fireworks show that recently received some really cool fire effects upgrades.

Come back soon for more Disney Park updates in Disney Tidbits!

Thanks to @DisneyJunkie75 for some pics.

    “It was a pretty slow day in the park, this summer season in general has been lower crowds.”

    Or maybe people realized that there is SO much construction going on that there is little left to do. Maybe Disney would remedy this by adding some entertainment, but I doubt it.

      Don’t forget to the gator attack and the massacre in Orlando. Those might also be impacting travel to Central Florida. And the cost of a Disney trip might finally be starting to keep people away, especially with all of the closures and construction you mentioned.

        Not really, -they’ve- pretty much forgotten it–
        New signs are up (at MK, it’s not a problem at the Studios), the jokes are back on the Cruise and Louis is back at the Castle. Now all we need is Tick-Tock back in the parade.
        It’s pretty much that fans have been hearing NOTHING BUT construction at the Studios, and apart from those who already know enough to wait, some may not even be aware it’s open at all.

    Can I Say this right now? Why couldn’t they built the Red Carpet Dreams M&G in Sunset Blvd? Why couldn’t they have a new location for Sulley and Mike of Monsters Inc. and Mr & Mrs Incredible of The Incredibles instead of having fewer uncommon and more common characters is the reason why i’ll have fewer autographs for my next WDW vacation. It’s just my opinion
