What’s New at Hollywood Studios: A Restaurant Gets Ready to Reopen, A Secret Menu Sip, and the Latest Merch!

“Hello!” from HOLLYWOOD… Disney’s Hollywood Studios!!

Poison Candied Apple at Hollywood Studios

We, of course, scared up some fun at the park earlier this week when all of the fall and Halloween goodies made their seasonal debut! (Did you see the pretty Poison Candied Apple right there?) But we’re back with a lil’ update for you from our most recent trip for a short — but sweet! — look at What’s New in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

And the emphasis is on the sweet for our first stop…

Hollywood Studios Food Updates

Jack Skellington Frappuccino at The Trolley Car Cafe

Ok, so technically the Jack Skellington Frappuccino isn’t really new, since this themed drink is actually a secret (off-the-menu) item.

We Tried The Starbucks Secret Menu Jack Skellington Frappuccino at Disney World

But it was our first time trying it at The Trolley Car Café (the park’s Starbucks location), so we thought we’d share it here!

Jack Skellington Frappuccino

This super sweet sip is positively packed with ingredients including — but not limited to – espresso and Chai added to Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino… and more! You can check out the full list here.

Check out our review of the Jack Skellington Frappuccino here!

Hollywood & Vine Distancing Markers

Though it’s not open just yet, it will be soon… Hollywood & Vine will reopen to present Minnie’s Seasonal Dine starting September 25th!

Hollywood and Vine

Minnie, Mickey, and pals will conjure up a not-so-spooky modified character dining experience for guests while dressed in their Halloween costumes! In fact, Advance Dining Reservations just opened this morning for this experience.

Halloween at Hollywood and Vine with Minnie’s Seasonal Dine

When we strolled by Hollywood & Vine, we noticed that physical distancing markers had been added to the pathways leading up to the location.

Disney Studio Store

Just a note that the Disney Studio Store (it’s located by the Voyage of the Little Mermaid) has been blocked off.

Disney Studio Store

This shop has not been open, though, since the park itself reopened.

Disney Studio Store

Here in the Animation Courtyard area, guests can check out the Disney Junior Play & Dance Party, and relax for a spell at the Relaxation Station currently offered at the location for the Star Wars Launch Bay.

See what’s shakin’ at the Disney Junior Play & Dance Party here!

Celebrity 5&10 and Mickey’s of Hollywood

And you may have already seen that the new line of handheld character fans has arrived here in Hollywood Studios (we found them at both Celebrity 5&10 and Mickey’s of Hollywood) after making their debut in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney!

Orange Bird Fan

At $9.99 each, these fans feature options like the Orange Bird and Rainbow Mickey.

Rainbow Mickey Fan

And fans of Disney Villains have a few choices, too!

Dr. Facilier Fan

Fitting, since it’s almost the wicked season after all. (Did you know that there’s a place where Disney Villains will begin to make appearances again soon?)

Evil Queen Fan

We’ll be on the lookout for more of these fans in Disney World (especially since there is a Hei Hei fan in Disneyland which we haven’t spotted in Disney World just yet).

Well, as they say in Hollywood… “That’s a Wrap!” If you’d like to see What’s New in the other Disney World theme parks this week…

Check out What’s New in EPCOT here, and see What’s New in Magic Kingdom here!

We hope this trip to Hollywood Studios helps you kick off a great weekend, and we’ll see you right back here on the DFB soon!
