What’s New in Hollywood Studios: An Expensive Item Is BACK

A lot can happen at Disney World in just a few days!

Slinky Dog Dash

For example, in the past few days, we’ve gotten more information about when guests will be able to make reservations at the Galactic Starcruiser (a.k.a. the Star Wars Hotel), plus we’ve seen a new update come to Genie+, and we’ve even gotten the news that one of Disney World’s mini golf courses will be temporarily closing for refurbishment soon. With how fast things happen in Disney World, we go to the parks almost every day so we can bring the most up-to-date information, so today, we’re heading to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see what’s new. 

Hollywood Studios Construction Updates

Toy Story Land

First up, we noticed a change with the construction walls surrounding the new Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant that’s coming to Toy Story Land. The walls used to have concept art for the restaurant, but they are now blank.

No more concept art

For reference, this is what the area looked like before:

This restaurant was originally supposed to open back in 2020 but was delayed. Disney has shared that it will open sometime this year, but no specific details have been announced yet.

Rock Around the Shop

The MADE Machine had been removed from Rock Around the Shop.

It’s gone!

There are still regular phone cases available for sale despite its removal.

Guest Experience

And our final construction update is that the Guest Experience kiosk is no longer located outside of the theater for Beauty and the Beat — Live on Stage.

The Guest Experience kiosk has moved

This kiosk is now located over by Tower Hotel Gifts, the gift shop at the end of Tower of Terror.
