Hollywood Studios Update: Grand Avenue Opens to Guests (PART 1)

A number of Guests visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios might feel a bit overwhelmed by the amount of construction walls and tarps seen around every corner of the park. While we agree that Hollywood Studios is currently a half-day park, we shouldn't forget that it still offers some excellent attractions and shows. Additionally, there are so many things to look forward to! We hope this photo-report will help build anticipation for all the wonderful new attractions that await us.


Disregard the fact that yesterday was a very gloomy day. Think positive thoughts...
