Development on New Grand Avenue Area at Walt Disney World Continues


We previously reported that a new area would be coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  This area is known as Grand Avenue and will be themed after downtown Hollywood. The themed area will also include a new dining and drinking location, Baseline Tap House.  Thanks to WDW Magic, we have a couple photos of the current development progress in this area.  We can see from the photos that there are now signs and window decorations going up for Baseline Tap House as well as other aspects for Grand Avenue.


Here are photos of the entrance to the Grand Avenue area and the new Baseline Tap House sign that is now in place:

We can’t wait for Grand Avenue to open and to see what else Walt Disney World plans to do with it.  We expect that there will be some new entertainment offers and fun happening in the area!

The area is set to open later this fall, and the progress looks like that the opening is likely on schedule.  What do you think of the changes coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios?  Do you think Grand Avenue would be a fabulous place to hang out during your next visit?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
