Hello and welcome to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Each week, our fantastic DFB reporters walk through all of the Disney World theme parks (multiple times typically) to see what’s new! This week, we made a few trips to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and spotted some changes in social distancing, some new items to celebrate Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, and more. Ready to go on a virtual trip with us through the park to see what’s changed recently? Then put on those Disney ears, grab your Loungefly bags, and let’s go!
Hollywood Studios Food Updates
First up, we’ll tackle a food update, although this update is more related to restaurant seating than food itself. During our recent trips to the parks we noticed some changes when it comes to social distancing in select counter service spots. Specifically, we didn’t see any tables blocked off for distancing purposes in the Sunset Ranch Market area…
We did notice, however, that some tables were still blocked off at ABC Commissary…
…and Baseline Tap House.
We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more updates there.
Hollywood Studios Merchandise Updates
In terms of merchandise, while we were in the park we spotted a new Disney gift card with a 50th Anniversary design of the park icons.
Disney World’s 50th anniversary will officially kick off on October 1st, 2021, but we’ve already started to see the parks getting ready! We can’t wait to see all of the park icons with their special anniversary looks.
Recently, we also spotted the Darth Vader Star Wars ears in the parks. During our recent trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios we noticed that Legends of Hollywood had plenty of these ears in stock.
So, if you’re looking to grab a pair of these new ears for yourself or a friend, be sure to check there!
Hollywood Studios Miscellaneous Updates
But wait, there’s more! Wondering what some of the wait times were during one of our recent trips? While we were there, we saw that the wait times were 25 minutes for the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror…
…40 minutes for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Featuring Aerosmith, 10 minutes for Muppet*Vision 3D, 50 minutes for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, 25 minutes for Toy Story Mania…
…and 45 minutes for Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. During one time that we were there, Slinky Dog Dash was temporarily unavailable.
Click here to see a look at the average wait times from a previous week in Disney World (we’ll be sharing a look at the wait times from this last week soon)!
During our most recent trip, we also spotted some new posters outside of ABC Commissary featuring some ABC programs including Press Your Luck…
…The Celebrity Dating Game…
…as well as mixed-ish and The Ultimate Surfer.
And finally, we noticed that the digital screens here which display health and safety information have been updated to show Disney World’s most current mask and safety policies.
It’s important to take a look at these and stay up-to-date on all the latest safety policies in Disney as those have changed recently.
And that’s it for us from Disney’s Hollywood Studios! We’ll keep visiting the park in the upcoming days, weeks, and months to fill you in on all the new things there.
