    Walt Disney World have submitted plans to change the way guests access Hollywood Studios and it could point to further expansion plans for Star Wars in the long term.

    Whilst I am sure WDW is looking forward to its influx of visitors to Hollywood Studios when it opens Star Wars Land, the current state of parking facilities and vehicle entrance will likely not support the higher levels of visitors. Plans have been filed which make clear their intention to improve the infrastructure around the HWS park but also gives back current used land back to the park which may be used for future expansion too.



    If Disney were to move or reduce the size of Studio Drive, that would allow Disney to expand the footprint of the park in the area where Star Wars Land is under construction.


    Disney's Hollywood Studios' new access road points toward the east side of the current parking lot, on the far side from the park's entrance. The newly submitted plans do not connect the proposed interchange with the DHS parking lot, leaving the flyover road to dead end in the wooded area to the east of the parking lot. However, written notes in the submitted plans do confirm that there will be a proposed new entrance into Disney's Hollywood Studios, leading one to assume that those plans will be filed at a later date.

    So it's already a little behind as the demolition moves on so quickly but Google Earth has been updated in March to show the Backlot Tour being demolished.

    Catastrophe Canyon (Backlot Tour) has gone completely and is now being worked on in this shot.


    The Premiere Theatre is more than half down in this shot. Work continues all around that area.

    We already saw the Premiere Theatre coming down but the backlot tour has been flattened too. That curve used to be Catastrophe Canyon on the Backlot Tour, you can still see the water trough where the deluge flowed away.

    News from the Disney Shareholder Meeting today.

    Of course, the world of Star Wars is vast and touches so many worlds of Disney. We’ve been eager for any new details about the upcoming Star Wars-themed lands being built at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, and Bob gave us fantastic news this morning: the groundbreaking for these Star Wars-themed lands will begin next month.

    More rumors about how this attraction will look like in the future:

    1. Poe Dameron’s black X-wing fighter will greet guests at the 3rd entrance to Star Wars Land, although an Episode VIII feature to the fighter might make it different from what we know about it from The Force Awakens.
    2. Characters and creatures from Star Wars: Episode VIII will be featured in the park.
    3. The Falcon will be real, life sized, not scaled down at all, and sitting on top of a launch pad.
    And more about this here:
