Our latest trip to Hollywood Studios was packed with updates! The park is starting to get ready for the holidays and the arrival of the Flurry of Fun (that starts this week!) with lights and merch all over, progress continues on Stars Wars construction and refurbishments and they are ready to open a new car entrance! We’ve collected all of the updates for you!
Happy November from Epcot! November brings Dia de los Muertos to the Mexico Pavilion, a lot of Holiday merchandise to the park, the end of the Food and Wine Festival on November 12 🙁 and the start of the Festival of the Holidays on November 18 🙂 to this really busy park! That’s in addition to the construction for the new Guardians of the Galaxy and Ratatouille rides and installation of the park’s Skyliner station!! Here’s everything we found!
Disney is keeping us busy — and excited for the Skyliner opening in 2019! On each of our visits to Hollywood Studios and Epcot, plus any of the resorts along the Skyliner route, we anxiously check out the progress. Yesterday we checked on the progress of the Skyliner Station at Epcot.
This week we got to see them working on a more artistic aspect of the Skyliner, the art on the station roof.
As November nears, that means we are one month closer to 2019 — and 2019 brings the launch of the Disney Skyliner system! We’ve been keeping you updated on the progress of the stations at Hollywood Studios and Epcot, and Disney teased us with a release of their fun facts video. This weekend we checked in on the progress of the Hollywood Studios Skyliner station as well as changes to the parking lot to accommodate the new car entrance to the park opening November 8th.
They are getting pretty close here! You can see the roof matches the style of the Hollywood Studios entrance gates. Are they even getting the ground ready for some new grass?
Holiday Greetings from Hollywood Studios?!! Yes, for some reason the “Christmas Creep” has started and we are seeing Christmas decorations up in Hollywood Studios — as well as some Christmas Merch — sitting right next to the Halloween Merch!
In addition to seeing Christmas arrive here, we also found construction, food, character meet and greets, Skyliner, and merchandise updates all around the park! [Read more…]
All eyes are on the SKIES in Walt Disney World, as construction is well underway for the Disney Skyliner transportation system!
From support towers to Skyliner stations, Disney is gearing up for this new transportation system which will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to four Resorts: Art of Animation, Pop Century, Caribbean Beach and the upcoming Disney’s Riviera Resort. [Read more…]
It’s been a busy week in Epcot! We found food updates, construction, completed refurbs, new rides and restaurants, plus more new merch! Join us at Epcot to see what we found!
But first, don’t forget…there’s less than a month left in the Food and Wine Festival — our very favorite thing in Epcot! Be sure to check this year’s festival out before it ends!
If you’ve recently visited Epcot’s France Pavilion, or entered the park via the International Gateway located between the UK and France Pavilions, then you’ve likely noticed a lot of construction going on! That construction is for the addition of a Ratatouille ride in France as well as the Skyliner transportation system. We’ll start this update with the Ratatouille ride.
This ride will be in a completely new section of the France pavilion. Looking at the concept art, it appears that the ride building will be disguised as city buildings behind the current entrance to the Impressions de France film. [Read more…]
We’ve been keeping you updated on the progress of the new Disney Skyliner transportation system set to open next year. It will connect the Art of Animation, Pop Century, Caribbean Beach, and Riviera Resorts to Hollywood Studios and Epcot.
No firm date has been announced by Disney, but signs of steady progress can be seen along the route with stations at each stop and posts along the route being built. [Read more…]
