T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 29 Years Of Movies And Fun!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been taking guest on a journey through the movies for over 29 years – in fact, on May 1st the Park celebrated it’s 29th anniversary!

“The World you have entered was created by The Walt Disney Company and is dedicated to Hollywood—not a place on a map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream and wonder and imagine, a place where illusion and reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was—and always will be.” – Michael Eisner said this during his speech on the day the park opened – back then it was called “Disney’s MGM Studios” – and some of us old timers (like myself will probably always call it that)

In honor of the Park celebrating 29 years, here’s a look back on some of my favorite Hollywood Studios moments:

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Woody Has Arrived At Toy Story Land!

Only 64 more days until the GRAND opening of the highly anticipated Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – June 30th will be here before we know it!

The construction is coming along – and this week one REALLY important piece arrived:

There’s a new Sheriff in town! Standing at nearly 20 feet tall, Woody is posed right at the entrance to welcome you to Toy Story Land! Woody will be right in front of another popular Toy Story character’s attraction – The Slinky Dog Dash – which has been under construction since last fall

I can’t wait until June 30th to see pictures and videos of the finished product – and then to actually visit in person in September!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Mickey FINALLY Gets His VERY OWN RIDE!

Runawayrailway4

Disney World is going through a TON of changes right now – and a lot of them are taking place over at Hollywood Studios – and I personally can’t wait for the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway next year – where the Mouse and his main squeeze are the stars!

Mickey has never actually had his “own” ride at Disney World – so this is pretty cool news! Check out more details Here

The ride will be located in the building previously used by The Great Movie Ride – and while I am still mourning the loss of that, if they HAVE to replace it with something – I guess a ride about the world’s most famous mouse is a decent replacement!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 18 Reasons To Visit Walt Disney World In 2018

As a Disney LOVER – I don’t need any excuse/reason to visit Walt Disney World – I would go anytime, anyplace, no questions asked. BUT – in case you need some convincing – check out some of these Top Reasons To Visit Walt Disney World in 2018:

18 reasons1

THE OPENING OF TOY STORY LAND! This is one I am personally pretty pumped about – as my family and I are headed there in September, and my son is a BIG Toy Story fan – he loves his Buzz and Woody, and he will go nuts at seeing them life size at Hollywood Studios!

18 reasons 2

Star Wars Fans will be glad to hear that there will be TONS of new stuff themed after the franchise coming to the Parks in 2018: props from The Last Jedi will be on display at the Star Wars Launch Bay in Hollywood Studios, an immersive virtual reality experience at Disney Springs, and two new destinations have been added to the Star Tours Ride, too!

18 reasons4 18 reasons 3

NEW FOOD – Disney Springs is opening EIGHT new dining locations in 2018 – to include The Edison – a restaurant/bar/lounge created from an old power plant with dazzling “Edison-Era” décor throughout –with a larger than life clock tower greeting you at the entrance

There is SO MUCH to look forward to when you’re planning a Disney World vacation – all the great things you will get to experience, see, eat, do – but in case you needed even more convincing – here’s the full list of the top 18 reasons to head there this year (courtesy of the Disney Parks Blog!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Inside Baseline – WDW’s Newest Beer Spot!

BaseLine Tap House opened last month in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios – and I personally was THRILLED to hear the news – a cool spot to grab a craft beer and awesome pretzel – I’m in!

Check it out:

Baseline7

Baseline8

Baseline5

Baseline6

(You may have noticed I included the pretzels twice – that’s not a mistake – that’s just how good they look – I had to give them double props!)

Ok, truth be told I am not much of a beer fan myself – but my husband is – so much so that I am excited for him – to have a place to go and check out beers that he otherwise might not get to try is the perfect vacation activity! Lucky for me – they serve wine too (score!)

Can’t wait to check this place out when we head to Disney World next year!

I was doing some Disney web browsing (as I often do because – well – Disney rules), checking out news and updates people had posted -and I stumbled across this article titled “9 “Walls” Disney Parks Super Fans Deem Instagram Worthy” – and upon further reading, I realized – it’s really an article about the best places to take selfies at Walt Disney World. Now – I understand that not everyone is super into taking selfies, but if you ARE – then these are some of the best places to do it:
