Welcome back to another update of What’s New in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Today, we’ll chat about some new Star Wars merchandise, menu changes, and more!
Let’s get started!
Hollywood Studios Food Update
First up, we found a few menu changes at 50’s Prime Time Cafe. Cousin Amy’s Iceberg Lettuce Wedge has been updated to become Cousin Amy’s Plant-based Iceberg Lettuce Wrap. It now has Ranch instead of blue cheese, and rice paper bacon instead of actual bacon. Cousin Harold’s Vegetable Lasagna has been replaced by Cousin Harold’s Plant-based Entree, which will change seasonally.
At Hollywood & Vine, Minnie’s Halloween Dine has returned!
The Grand Avenue snack cart, which is located near Muppet*Vision 3D and Star Tours, has been turned around to face the entrance to Galaxy’s Edge.
This cart, which usually sells corn dogs, churros, and cotton candy, is now also selling teriyaki meatballs, marinara meatballs, and a turkey sandwich as well!
During our visit, we tried the teriyaki meatballs, which are served with noodles. We thought the teriyaki sauce was really good and the meatballs themselves were pretty tasty. They were tender and juicy, unlike the noodles, which were pretty dry. On the whole, we enjoyed this new menu offering!
At Trolley Car Cafe, we were so glad to notice the return of the fall drink menu! Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew is new to Starbucks’ fall lineup, and we actually tried it during a visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Pumpkin scones, pumpkin cream cheese muffins, AND pumpkin spice lattes have all returned, so you have plenty of ways to get your pumpkin spice fix!
Hollywood Studios Construction Update
Over in Pixar Place, the Guest Experience Team had a screen out right across from Joffrey’s, although it wasn’t being used. We assume this may possibly be used to display wait times, but it was not operational during our visit.
Hollywood Studios Merchandise Update
In Celebrity 5&10, we spotted several Star Wars-themed phone cases we hadn’t seen before! We found one featuring R2-D2 ($34.99)…
…one with the Star Wars logo ($34.99)…
…one featuring the Millennium Falcon (among other spacecraft) ($29.99)…
…one with none other than Darth Vader ($29.99)…
…one with the Jedi symbol ($34.99)…
…and last, but certainly not least, we found a furry Chewbacca case ($34.99)! Why not grab one of these phone cases to use during the opening day of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (which is TOMORROW!)?
Also in Celebrity 5&10, we found a hat celebrating 80 years of Marvel ($27.99)!
Once Upon a Time
In Once Upon a Time, we spotted the totally awesome Evil Queen Loungefly backpack ($80).
We previously found this delightfully evil backpack in Downtown Disney, but this was the first time we saw it in Disney World!
Stage 1 Company Store
Several pieces of Star Wars art was on display in Stage 1 Company Store.
Which ones were our favorites? The ones featuring Luke Skywalker…
…and Yoda, of course!
In Tattooine Traders, we found another thing you may want to sport during Galaxy’s Edge opening day! We spotted a Stormtrooper hat for $29.99.
The only question is — which side are you truly on?
