Disney’s Hollywood Studios has all sorts of projects in the works. Not only are massive Star Wars and Toy Story lands on the way, but Mickey Mouse is taking over the space of the former Great Movie Ride as well. Let’s take a look!

Welcome to Hollywood!
The Crossroads sign is back, and looking clean.

Looks like some thematic touches might be in the process of being added to these control towers in the center of the park.
Great Movie Ride signage has been removed.
As are the banners with the Wizard of Oz scene on them.
Posters are up for the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which is replacing the Great Movie Ride.

It was recently announced that One Man’s Dream is going to transition into Walt Disney Presents, and will showcase old Disney history and artifacts. It will also include models of Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, as well as other concept art.

The photos don’t do justice to the scale, this is a very large show building.
On the other side of the Chinese Theater, you can see this new billboard for the new Mickey and Minnie attraction.
This should more than confirm that the Chinese Theater facade isn’t going away.
The area connecting Sci-Fi Dine In and the Muppet courtyard is going to be named Grand Avenue.
The BaseLine Tap Room is one highlight of the change, promising craft beers and pretzels.
They’ve planted quite a few trees here already.

The attraction will take place on two different levels, not unlike Transformers over at Universal.

It’s worth noting that the Express Transportation option was discontinued this month. The service started late last year and allowed guests to pay extra for the privilege of boarding buses INSIDE the theme parks for purposes of park-hopping.

Time to head out!
