Though the big news out of Disney's Hollywood Studios in 2018 was the June 30th opening of Toy Story Land, as the year draws to a close there are some other changes are on the horizon for this park that visitors should know about. From the opening of a new show to an exciting new holiday overlay, here's everything that will be happening soon at Disney's Hollywood Studios:

1. Vampirina set to come to the Animation Courtyard next month

Last month Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates sailed away for good, and though this character's spot is currently empty, it won't stay that way for long as new Disney Junior character Vampirina is due to stop by in November to begin meeting guests regularly in this area of the park. Vampirina can already be found at the Disney Junior Play n' Dine experience at this park (as well at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom) but next month will finally bring this character out from upcharge experiences and into a space where regular park guests can meet her. 

2. New Disney Junior Show set to debut on December 22, 2018

3. Disney releases new look at holiday overlay for Toy Story Land

It might not be the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, but Disney has confirmed that the brand new Toy Story Land will be getting "seasonal enhancements" as part of a new overlay this winter.

Beginning November 8th, guests can enjoy the land’s new holiday decor, which will include oversized cranberry-and-popcorn garland, a holiday card “selfie” of Toy Story pals, an oversized Hamm sugar cookie, Green Alien ornaments and more. The land’s attractions will also be have special effects added for the holiday season, with sleigh bells ringing on Slinky Dog Dash, and special music and lighting effects on Alien Swirling Saucers.
