Have you heard? There is a ton happening at Hollywood Studios. Finally crawling out of piles of construction Hollywood Studios is reemerging shinier than before.
Wonderful World of Animation
This Disney nighttime show uses state-of-the-art technology as guests are brought through the 90-year journey of Disney Animation Studios. Plan on seeing some of your favorite characters and prepare to be overwhelmed (as usual) by the amazing music accompanying this show. The show will be projected on the facade of the Chinese Theater.
Meet and Greet with Bo Peep at Toy Story Land
New to the character Meet and Greet lineup, fans will finally get a chance to meet Bo Peep! Fresh from recent fame in Toy Story 4, Bo Peep will appear in Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios intermittently starting Summer 2019.
Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy
This brand new show features an opportunity to meet both Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez and is located in Sunset Showcase at Hollywood Studios. Featuring some amazing animatronics with digital enhancements this is a great show for kids and cars fans alike.
Walt Disney Presents featuring Mike and Sully
Finally! Our favorite friends from Monsters Inc. will take center stage in a new Meet and Greet area at Walt Disney Presents theater. You can find it next to the Star Wars Launch Bay. Previously home to Starlord and Groot, the Walt Disney Presents theater is a great place to get away during rainy or hot weather at Disney. So be sure to stop in and walk around.
New Disney Snacks at Hollywood Studios
Lightsaber churros and anniversary cupcakes top the list of must-try snacks. For details on our favorite Hollywood Studios Snacks, check out our Snacks at Hollywood Studios post. The headliner here is of course the Num Num cookie. Newly arrived in Pixar Place at the Neighborhood Bakery this cookie could previously only be found at Disneyland. We also loved the key lime pie on a stick. Be sure to grab all the new snacks at Disney World.
Roundup Rodeo BBQ
The newest restaurant at Hollywood Studios is the Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant. And something Andy just threw together so his toys could have somewhere to eat. Imagine the same larger-than-life elements you love in Toy Story Land to pop up here as well. This is a unique, fun family dining experience that Hollywood Studios has been waiting for.
New Bus Queues
With all the fun changes coming to Hollywood Studios, the new bus queues really step up the whole theme of the Park! These are well lit, more spacious and in our opinion, a little more organized than the previous setup. And how cute are these?!
Disney Skyliner Gondolas
The Disney Skyliner Gondolas serve Hollywood Studios as part of the route, the Disney skyliners are meant to be not only transportation but also an experience. The gondolas will be decorated with favorite characters and run continuously to bring guests to Epcot via The Boardwalk, Hollywood Studios and the skyliner resorts ( Art of Animation, Pop Century, Caribbean Beach, and Disney’s Riviera Resort).
