Welcome to our latest update of What’s New in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We’ve got lots of construction, merch, and food updates to tell you about, so let’s get started!
Hollywood Studios Construction Update
On the way into the park for the day, we noticed that signs have been added above the Bag Check area.
It also looked like the extended covered section that has been under construction may be complete, but it isn’t open quite yet.
We’re guessing it will be open soon since Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in less than a month!
We also saw that the Hollywood Studios Cast Member costumes have been updated! What do you think about them?
Thanks to the wonderful Cast Member Maddy for letting us take this adorable picture!
We’ve seen lot of unknown construction going on across from the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant.
Some of the walls have started to come down, but lots of foliage was still blocking the area when we were there.
Although we aren’t necessarily sure what the construction is for, we are anticipating its reveal!
What do you think it could be??
When we visited Hollywood Studios, The Voyage of The Little Mermaid was closed for minor refurbishments, but now it seems to be open again according to Disney World’s website!
While the attraction was closed, guests could meet Ariel and Eric outside the theater’s entrance at various times throughout the day.
We’re getting closer and closer to the grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios on August 29th! We were excited to catch a glimpse of the entrance!
Curious about what you can expect in the new land? A few members of our extended DFB family were able to travel to the Black Spire Outpost!
Hollywood Studios Food Update
Over at Hollywood Brown Derby, we discovered a new item on the dessert menu — the Chocolate Coconut Cake! The coconut-chocolate cake is covered in chocolate sauce, hazelnut cream, and fresh raspberries for $12.
We might have just heard our stomachs growl a little bit…
We’ve been on the lookout for one of our favorite droids, and we saw that the BB-8 Steins are back at Peevy’s Polar Pipeline!
Welcome back, little guy!!
Hollywood Studios Merch Update
You can embrace your inner rock star and grab this awesome Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Anniversary Shirt for $29.99.
Or, maybe instead of singing “Walk This Way,” you’d rather strum the guitar with these Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Anniversary Guitar Picks for $9.99.
You can put the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Anniversary Pin on your bags, jackets, lanyards, and VIP Passes for $17.99.
While you can also purchase the anniversary merch at Once Upon A Time, you can get the I Am Groot Hat at the store as well for $27.99. Now you just need some headphones, a Walkman, and Star-Lord’s Awesome Mixes to complete your look! Talk about a great way to celebrate the film’s recent 5th anniversary!
If you like mixtapes, you might also like vinyl records. The Alice in Wonderland Vinyl Pin can be found in the pin section of Celebrity 5 & 10 for $17.99!
If you’re in the mood for a Star Wars-themed pin, you’ll find the limited edition Galaxy’s Edge Pin featuring BB-8 at Tatooine Traders for $17.99.
We spotted the Kids’ Rainbow Unicorn Shirt for the first time at Beverly Sunset Boutique for $19.99.
And you can pair it with the adorable Kids’ Rainbow Unicorn Hoodie ($44.99)!
