Big things are happening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios behind this park’s many, many construction walls. And while we can't wait to check out Toy Story Land on June 30th and Star Wars Land in 2019, some other changes are happening right now inside the park that visitors should know about. From new sounds to an unannounced refurbishment, here's everything going on right now at Disney's Hollywood Studios:
1. All tracks now open at Toy Story Mania
Toy Story Mania has been in various phases of closure over the past few weeks as Disney prepares to open a new entrance for this attraction inside the forthcoming Toy Story Land, but as of this week it looks like all tracks of the ride are currently open and same-day FastPass+ reservations are once again available as well. Because of the construction inside this attraction, both standby and FastPass+ riders are sharing just one entrance with two separate lines.
Of course, this won't last long as Toy Story Mania is set to be completely closed from June 11 to June 18 while the finishing touches are made to the new entrance for this ride in advance of the June 30 opening date of Toy Story Land. Though Disney hasn't said as much, we'd imagine the construction walls around Toy Story Land will be coming down when this attraction reopens, even though it is almost two weeks before the official opening.
2. New entertainment option for Toy Story Land detailed
And speaking of Toy Story Land, in addition to the two new attractions, walk-up quick-service restaurant and character meet and greets, it was recently announced that guests who visit Toy Story Land can also be entertained by the Sarge and the Green Army Man Drum Corps, a wandering character experience that will see some slightly-redesigned soldiers march through the land several times a day and stop to play “Sarge Says” with guests, and other games with a larger-than-life Pixar ball and crayons. Guests also have the option to join in on their interactive boot camp to see if they have what it takes to become an official recruit in Andy’s Backyard.
