Have you ever been to Disney’s Hollywood Studios? You might remember it as Disney MGM Studios but a lot has changed since the renaming of their iconic theme park. The biggest and latest change probably was the removal of the landmark centerpiece, Mickey’s Sorcerer’s Hat that greeted guests when entering the park. Lately the big buzz at Hollywood Studios has been the sound of jackhammers and the unpleasant sight of scaffolding that is being used to work on a few of their current projects.
The biggest and most talked about addition to the park has to be the Star Wars Lands and truthfully I can’t wait for this one! It will allow fans to walk through this galaxy far, far away and meet their heroes in real life. Taking up a staggering 14 acres, this new land is sure to please the most diehard fans! The next biggest attraction on the drawing board is the not so much talked about Toy Story Land. The coolest thing that I have heard is that you will be shrunk down to the size of one of Andy’s toys and will be able to go out and explore Andy’s backyard.
From what I have heard, they will be building on to that area where it is now and have 2 new rides created after the little green aliens from Pizza Planet and a new family friendly roller coaster showcasing Slinky Dog as the theme of the ride. I really think that this is a good move on Disney’s part and it is a much needed injection in a pretty boring theme park that was being labeled a half day theme park. Let’s just hope that they can pull off this pretty huge task without putting the guests out to much. Construction at a theme park can suck and really put a damper on one’s vacation!
