Despite the sad state of Disney's Hollywood Studios, walking down Hollywood Boulevard is much more rewarding now, thanks to the lack of the Sorcerer's Hat that has blocked the view of the amazing Chinese Theater for about 14 years.
While the rest of the park still has plenty of issues (many of which are going to be removed in the next few years), the park is introducing a multitude of minor additions that will keep Guests busy while work on the new lands progresses.

Let's take a look around the park to see what the park currently offers:

Hollywood Blvd.:

This view is absolutely gorgeous:

The Center Stage area as a whole looks great. Retractable light fixtures would be a nice addition:

Looking back towards the exit of the park:

The new "We Love Disney" preview recently opened in the Echo Lake area of the park:

As we reported on our social media pages, the carpet and all the seats inside the ABC Sound Studio have been changed. The theater now sports a completely new look. Could this mean that the location will remain as is for the foreseeable future? Old rumors pointed to a possible removal of the theater.

Gone are the old seats with headphones:

The actual preview is by no means a must-see. The A/C was much appreciated, though.

The Star Tours area:

The former Jedi Training Academy is now closed for refurbsihment:

The new "Trials of the Temple" version of the show will open in December:

Muppet*Vision 3D:

New advertisements for the new Muppets television series have replaced the classic posters:

Watto's Grotto is still open in the Streets of America area of the park:

The main entrance:

Another look inside this temporary location:

The FastPass+ line for Toy Story Mania! now spills outside the building on many occasions. As we shared on our Facebook and Twitter pages, we might have identified the problem behind this unfortunate change. The reason why the FastPass+ line is so long could be the lack of emergency exits on the stairway leading to the loading area. In fact, the Cast Members working at the location are now leaving the stairs mostly clear of Guests. That causes the line to be longer outside the building. We are sure this is just a temporary issue that will be solved with the opening of the third track:

New Jungle Book ad near Pixar Place:

The Soundstage Lounge is now closed:

The covering over the former queue area for The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow has been removed:

As reported by other sites, Walt Disney's office was recently removed from "One Man's Dream":

Walls are now up around a section of Sunset Boulevard:

Catalina Eddie’s and Rosie’s All American CafĂ© are closed through November 19:

The Hollywood Tower Hotel:

It's time to head home:
