What’s New in Hollywood Studios: New Ride Procedures for Rise of the Resistance and MORE ‘Star Wars’ Merch!

Hey DFB friends! We’re back with another what’s new in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Hollywood Studios

On our recent visit, we searched for the latest food, construction, and merchandise, and we’re here to share it with you. Here we go!

Hollywood Studios Attraction Updates

Rise of the Resistance

We were lucky enough to score a Rise of the Resistance boarding pass. With the recent installation of plexiglass on the ride vehicles and in the pre-show room, we wanted to see if Disney would change the way guests experienced the attraction. When we visited last time, Cast Members still loaded one party per vehicle, but today they were loading two parties per car!

Rise of the Resistance

Now that there is a plexiglass barrier, more people can safely ride Rise of the Resistance. We sat in the second row with a party in front of us.

If anything changes on this attraction again, we will be sure to let you know!

Here is more information on the new plexiglass at Rise of the Resistance

Hollywood Studios Merchandise Updates

Tatooine Traders

In Tatooine Traders, we spotted a couple new Star Wars hats! The first one we saw was the Yoda Baseball Cap. This hat features Yoda himself and perhaps his most famous quote, “Do or do not, there is no try.

Yoda Hat

On the back of the hat, it says Disney Parks, so everyone will know you got it from the theme parks! This hat is sold for $27.99.

To get you in the holiday spirit, we also spotted this Star Wars Holiday Hat! This is so festive and we are HERE for it!

Star Wars Hat

We love the combination of Storm Troopers, stockings, and gifts, plus the fuzzy bottom that says Star Wars. This can be yours for $29.99.

We found a festive porg in Disney World

Legends of Hollywood

Over at Legends of Hollywood, we spotted the Pocahontas Alex and Ani Bangle! We have seen this online before, but now we’ve found it in the parks!

Pocahontas Alex & Ani

We also spotted the Flounder Alex and Ani Bangle in the park, even though we have seen it online! We are obsessed with all of these Disney bangles by Alex and Ani!

Flounder Alex & Ani

Both of these bangles are sold for $44.99 and you can buy them online or in Hollywood Studios.

Keystone Clothiers

In Keystone Clothiers, we spotted some new Baby Yoda PJs! Not only are these super cute, but the sequins that make up Baby Yoda are reversible! This set comes with a shirt and bottoms.

We also found a Porg Keychain! If you are a fan of these adorable Star Wars creatures, you gotta have this. Just look at that little face!

You can purchase a porg keychain for $12.99. We love finding new Star Wars merch around Disney World!

We found TONS of new Star Wars merch

And that’s a wrap on our day in Hollywood Studios. We had a blast visiting all of the shops and restaurants (and even riding Rise of the Resistance), and we hope you had fun following along. Stay tuned for our next visit!
