Not the Hollywood Studios you remember..

Have you seen the map of Hollywood Studios recently? If so you may be saying…WHAAAAT?!
Changes? OH YES! and plenty of them!

To make room for the 14 acre Star Wars and 11 acre Toy Story lands, a number of attractions and areas have closed. Starting with the removal of the Earffel tower.
It’s gone.

Walking around you will see most of the park is under construction. Walls are up almost everywhere.

Among other casualties: The Writer’s Stop, a place I loved! It will be remembered for being the perfect corner stop to get away from it all, have a quiet moment with a steamy cappuccino and the famous carrot cake cookie! Gone. UGH.

Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Streets of America, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set….All Gone!

Disney has also discontinued two seasonal events — the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and Star Wars Weekends.

I think the biggest shock for me was the Osborne Lights!! Why OH Why!!
I cannot even think of anything that comes close to that Holiday Light perfection!

Can you tell…I don’t do CHANGE well!

Moving on..

Disney’s Animal Kingdom used to be considered the half-day park. As Animal Kingdom has debuted new attractions and extended hours, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is starting to take on that reputation.

In my opinion it will have a different feel & flair once complete and a majority of it will focus on Star Wars which does not have as much appeal for me as it does for others.

What can I say it’s just not my thing! but I have a feeling they will do just fine! 😉
