A few days ago, we stopped by Disney's Hollywood Studios to see what's new around the park. As part of the massive expansion that's currently taking place, multiple areas of the park are not accessible by the general public, but all of them will reopen in just two years, as Toy Story Land, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway (which will soon replace The Great Movie Ride) are all scheduled to open by the end of 2019. Let's take a look around, shall we?
This is how the parks will look when hurricane Irma gets closer:

New doors have been installed in this area:
The Muppet fountain will return in mid-October:

PizzeRizzo still sells underwhelming food:
The building that will soon house the "Battle Escape" attraction looks massive:
It appears that this facade will remain:
The sign of Walt Disney: One Man's Dream was still missing during our visit. A new marquee was installed this morning.
The rest of the former soundstage next door is still behind walls:
It was a fairly quiet evening:
Let's conclude with a few more photos of the future Star Wars themed land:
