Editor’s Note: Disney has now confirmed that Studio Catering Co. will close on April 2 as well.
Today it was announced on the official Disney Parks Blog that the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show will be closing on April 2, 2016, in order to make way for the construction of the future Toy Story and Star Wars Lands in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
You may be wondering, “Ok… but what does that have to do with food, Disney FOOD Blog?”
Well, lemme tell ya… the Lights, Motors, Action! attraction is situated in the Streets of America section of the park, which will be getting some major changes with the updates (hence the final display of The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights this past holiday season). And the Disney Parks Blog post also confirmed that there will be more closures of “nearby locations” in that area of the park.
First, please understand that NONE of the spots mentioned below have been confirmed by Disney as facing closure. However, we can only assume that one or more of the following locations in the direct area may be affected:
And while each of those snack spots could presumably move to other locations around the park, that’s not the case with the Counter Service restaurant, Studio Catering Co. (In fact, sources such as the Orlando Sentinel have stated that Studio Catering Co. is indeed closing; however, there isn’t a confirmation from Disney at this time).
And we would assume that High Octane Refreshments, which is connected to Studio Catering Co., would follow suit.
So, if it turns out we’re correct on these, you may want to take some time on your upcoming Disney trip to grab some Chili-Cheese Nachos at Herbie’s or a Tropical Splash at High Octane Refreshments. And, of course, a Carrot Cake Cookie at The Writer’s Stop, Now, it’s true… you can also get the Carrot Cake Cookie at Sweet Spells (whew!), but how about making sure you grab it at the original location? You know, for old times sake.
What do you think of the upcoming changes at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? Please let us know with a comment!
