Welcome to our latest roundup of What’s New in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We have a lot to cover today, including menu changes, construction updates, and new merch (including NEW Pandora Charms!).
Before we dive into the new items we found, we want to note that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was the least crowded area of the park during our visit.
While we were there, Slinky Dog Dash actually had a longer wait time than Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Now certainly seems to be a great time to visit the brand-new land!
Hollywood Studios Food Update
Let’s kick things off at Trolley Car Cafe, where we noticed a change to their Chocolate-Chip Cookies. The Cookies are now smaller and are sold in packs of three instead of one large cookie.
Remember when we told you that the KRNR The Rock Station cart near Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster was going to remove hotdogs from the menu and instead feature macaroni and cheese? That change has now taken place, as you can see on the menu below. We actually tried the Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese when it was first introduced, and we really enjoyed it!
At various popcorn carts around the park, we noticed that the adorable BB-8 steins were available once again.
Hollywood Studios Construction Update
On Hollywood Boulevard, the construction walls that were previously covering up part of Mickey’s of Hollywood were down during our visit, but we could still hear construction work going on inside.
We’ll keep you updated as we learn about its reopening date!
At Hollywood Studios’ Skyliner Station, we noticed that the plastic wrap on the signage had been removed. The Disney World Skyliner Gondola System is set to open on September 29th — are you game to ride??
Hollywood Studios Merchandise Update
Celebrity 5 & 10
In Celebrity 5 & 10, we spotted a trio of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge phone cases for $29.99 each. We found one featuring the Millennium Falcon…
…one depicting Black Spire Outpost…
…and one featuring R2-D2!
Legends of Hollywood
…and a silver Naveen (in frog form) charm for $75 each.
We also noticed a set of two Star Wars charms for $150. One charm features the iconic quote, “May the Force be with you” on one side, and the Star Wars logo on the other side.
The second charm, which is in the shape of a heart, features none other than Han Solo and Princess Leia. It reads, ” I love you” on one side and “I know” on the other.
Once Upon a Time
In Once Upon a Time, we spotted a pair of Mike and Sulley Loungefly backpacks we hadn’t seen in the parks before. You may recognize these from other stores, but this is the first time we’ve seen them in Disney World!
They are just adorable, aren’t they?? They’re both available for $80.
Also in Once Upon a Time, we found a BRAND NEW Park Icons Loungefly backpack, which we also spotted in Disney Springs ($75)!
MagicBands, Dole Whips, and Castles — oh my! There are SO MANY cute staples of a Disney Parks day to find on this bag! We just can’t get enough of the beautiful pink and purple colors.
The last thing we found on our walk was the new Hondo Ohnaka Funko Pop! ($24.99), which we told you about a while back. Are you going to add him to your collection??
