Disney’s Hollywood Studios is one of the most exciting and thrilling theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort.
In addition to classic thrills such as Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Star Tours, it’s also the home of Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Major Hollywood Studios Attractions
Toy Story Land is home to Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers, and Toy Story Mania! This trio of attractions provide something for everyone in the family, while Roundup Rodeo BBQ and Woody’s Lunch Box are great place to grab some grub!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge transports park guests to the world of Disney Star Wars. E-ticket attractions such as Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance bring big thrills.
Meanwhile, Star Wars fans can also build their own lightsabers, design their own droid, or enjoy a curious concoction at Oga’s Cantina.
But there are some other less well-known corners of the theme park. And perhaps because they don’t draw big crowds, Walt Disney World Resort wants to make some changes.
Pixar Place is a spot near Toy Story Land where guests can meet and greet various Pixar characters at the Disney Park. Through the years, it has been the home of Mike and Sulley, the Incredibles, and Edna Mode.
Most recently, guests could grab a photo with characters from Elemental. However, it has been changed to an additional seating area. It’s likely that Elemental’s mixed reviews and reception have not made the characters a big draw to park guests. However, it seems unlikely that some extra tables and chairs are helping any more.
Construction walls have been up for months in the Grand Avenue section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The area around Muppet*Vision 3D is ripe for change.
Steel frame outlining a structure has begun to appear in the area. However, an official announcement or confirmation on the new building has yet to be made. It will likely be a new shop or snack spot.
The Muppet fountain that once displayed Miss Piggy as the Statue of Liberty has been surrounded by planters for a few weeks.
Many have speculated that the fountain is being refurbished to coincide with the new Jollywood Nights show featuring Kermit and Miss Piggy.
The fountain sits in front of the Muppet*Vision 3D show. Once a major attraction at the theme park when it opened over 30 years ago, it has since dwindled in popularity.
Although these changes may seem minor, they may signal Disney is looking to update the older areas of the theme park. Despite Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ impressive roster of attractions, the “theme” of the park needs some fixing.
At least…that’s this writer’s opinion.
