Most of the news out of Walt Disney World over the past few weeks has been related to the phased opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge happening this summer or the impending reboot of Epcot. However, Disney's Hollywood Studios has been making a few quiet changes over the past few weeks that might have just slipped under the radar! Here are all the announcements, new additions, and changes coming to this park that you might have missed! 

1. Aladdin movie preview coming to Walt Disney Presents next week

Now that Dumbo has safely landed in theaters, Disney is moving on to promiting its next live action adaptation: Aladdin. Beginning April 19, a sneak peek of this upcoming film will be presented as part of the Walt Disney Presents attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.This film releases on May 24th, after which we'd guess this preview will fly away on a magic carpet to make way for the third Disney lvie action adaptation coming this year, The Lion King, which releases this summer. 

2. Guest Experience Team coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios

Now that the Guest Experience Team has been permanently installed at the Magic Kingdom, Disney is now expanding this new amenity to Disney's Hollywood Studios beginning April 14. From this date forward the Guest Experience Team will help Guests make the most of their day by proactively assisting them while in the park with:
  • Booking, modifying, and recovering FastPass+ selections
  • Navigating the My Disney Experience app
  • Deactivating and reactivating MagicBands
And, just as Cast Members throughout the park already do, the Guest Experience Team will also provide recommendations, help Guests view attraction wait times, and also help guests navigate the park. 
In an effort to establish themselves before the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge this summer,
the Guest Experience Team will be set up daily following locations during normal park hours, and will be wearing their standard blue shirts:
  • Sunset Boulevard – Near Tower of Terror FastPass+ kiosk
  • Pixar Place – Near the entrance to Toy Story Land
  • Echo Lake – Near the entrance to Path of the Jedi
  • Center Stage – Near the Movie Cameraman Statue
