Where and When Are We?
Ok, first things first — the Star Wars universe is HUGE with SO MANY different stories and plots taking place across thousands of years, so we’re just gonna break down the essentials for visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland and Disney World (unless YOU wanna be here for thousands of years ????).
[NOTE: there are DEFINITELY some spoilers from ALL of the Star Wars films in here, but hey you’re the one looking for Star Wars cliff notes.]
Hollywood here we come! Well, Hollywood Studios that is! We found some new drinks, snacks, merchandise, construction updates, and signs that the park is almost ready to welcome Lightning McQueen!
But first, did you hear the biggest news of the month? Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening early on August 29 in Hollywood Studios! Read all the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening news here!
Hello from Hollywood Studios where we are on the lookout for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge construction progress, Skyliner System gondola testing, new shakes, new eats, new merchandise, and Disney Snacks as artwork!!
We are so excited and anxious for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge this fall that no visit to Hollywood Studios is complete without a peek over the “Toy Story Land wall” to see if we can spot any progress!
There’s a lot going on in Hollywood Studios! We collected all of the construction updates in one place. Before you even get in the park there’s a lot of construction to see between the new bus stations and Skyliner station.
There’s a Skyliner gondola in the station again! This gondola looks like it is more operational than the gondola we saw in the station last fall. Learn more about this new transportation option coming to Disney World this fall here.
It’s been a busy week over in Hollywood Studios! We’ve rounded up all the updates for you — new eats, new merchandise and LOTS of construction.
We don’t expect to see these Christmas decorations up much longer! They have been busy in the last few days in the park with lots of new updates, starting with the Skyliner station!
Greetings from Hollywood Studios! As Christmas winds down in the parks we found some changes in the park (Slinky Dog, where’s your tail?) as well as some new additions, and of course some new merchandise to welcome in 2019!
We’ll start this week’s tour out in Animation Courtyard where there’s a brand new Disney Junior Dance Party that is pretty fun!
With only three weeks left in 2018 we are getting closer and closer to the opening date of Disney World’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Land in the fall of 2019. Now, it looks like Disney is getting just as excited as we are because we spotted the previously seen Galaxy’s Edge merchandise in a more permanent location in Hollywood Studios! While we were in the park we also checked on the progress of the construction of the new land as well as renovations at Tatooine Traders.
Take a close look at the shirt — can you see the Millennium Falcon on there between “Landing” and “2019”? That’s a cool and subtle nod to the new ride, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.
