We’re heading to Hollywood Studios today to check on the progress of both Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land, as well as everything else happening at the park. Let’s go!

Welcome to the Studios!

Phasma leading the charge down Hollywood Blvd.

Always love seeing the Citizens of Hollywood.

As you can see here, there is a new Disney Movie Magic show happening every night. It is projected onto the Chinese Theater before the fireworks.

The Music of Pixar Live is now showing in the late afternoon and early evenings in the theater where the Beauty and the Beast show takes place.
Long lines for Tower of Terror. They actually closed off the standby line shortly after this photo and were accepting Fastpass+ only.
An updated look at Express Transportation times.

It’s nice to see varied food items here, not just burgers and chicken tenders.
The stage in front of the Chinese Theater is missing, and it seems like the Star Wars show that happens here isn’t scheduled for the next few weeks. Heard a rumor that it may be converting to a parade, but we’ll see.

One Man’s Dream is now the Cars 3 preview center.

The Star Lord and Baby Groot meet and greet is still here as well.
Remember how there used to be a giant model of the Tree of Life in this exhibit? Well, now it is a place to sell Guardians merchandise. Kind of disappointing.
Some more Cars art and models on display here.

Walls and tarps are now up where the old Jack Sparrow attraction used to be.

There are new walls which contain our first look at the official Toy Story Land logos.

The upcoming Slinky Dog roller coaster is almost completely in place.
The Star Wars Land walls have been moved MUCH closer to the buildings where the Doctor Strange meet and greet was located.

They finally replaced the year old Finding Dory poster.
Holy crowds!

Looks like these facades are getting a fresh coat of paint. Might they be sticking around?
You know it is busy when the outdoor queue for Star Tours is full.
