Hollywood Studios Update: The End of the Great Movie Ride (PART 2)

Welcome to the second part of our newest Disney's Hollywood Studios photo-report, OTPN Readers! Be sure to check out PART 1 of this update to find even more photos taken around this theme park.
In the previous part, we walked around the entrance of the park (including Hollywood Boulevard and the Center Stage), we headed inside The Great Movie Ride one last time, and then we headed to Sunset Boulevard and the future site of the Grand Avenue area. Let's explore the rest of the park.

Let's head to the future site of the Grand Avenue area:

  1. So are they just gonna..keep..Star Tours...there?

  2. With The Great Movie Ride gone I fear that there will never be another attraction of it's type again.
    It's the order of things that new technological advances will bring advanced attractions possibly in 4D & 5D but they won't have the charm of TGMR.
    With so much going on and with all that land I just wonder if Disney might've kept this attraction. If not for anything more than it's nostalgia value.
    Just saying...................

  3. Do we know if they are going to keep the Chinese Theater facade?

    1. Yes, the Chinese Theatre is staying. This is a sentence from the official Disney Parks blog announcing the new attraction. Note the "at the Chinese Theatre" part which confirms it is staying.

      "As you plan ahead, we also wanted to let you know that in order to begin to prepare the new home of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at the Chinese Theatre in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, August 13, 2017 will be the final day of operation for The Great Movie Ride presented by Turner Classic Movies."
