Disney Studios Hollywood is home to some of Disney World’s biggest trips, such as Star Wars: Rise of the resistance and tower of terror.
Today we have great news about the virtual queue in Rise of the Resistance and how you can still jump the line with the new Disney system. But What else is new in Hollywood studios this week? Let’s find out!
Today we have some news with the new merchandise at the Hollywood studios, as well as some changes to the decor and ride tickets around the park.
HHollywood Studios Merchandise Update
At Keystone Clothiers we found a new one Statuette Soldier of Captain America.
The figure is a poseable collectible which comes with accessories …
… such as the Cape shield and various uniform substitutions.
If you’re a Marvel collector (or just really like Captain America, there’s no argument here), you can head to Keystone Clothiers to buy this new figure for $ 99.99.
Hollywood studio construction update
One of the most important changes in Hollywood studios are the new golden character statues for the 50th anniversary of Disney World.
In Hollywood studios, we found statues of Edna Mode, Frozone …
… R2-D2 and BB-8
… Joe Gardner of Pixar’s Soul…
… Flounder and Sebastian de The Little Mermaid…
… and Woody and Bo Peep!

Going down Sunset Boulevard, we looked closely 50th anniversary banners in Hollywood studios.
The 50 Animal Kingdom banners had a green hue that matched the park and those at Hollywood Studios seem to have a little extra shine and brilliance to match the Hollywood theme. While we were on Sunset Boulevard, we stopped at Roller Coaster Rock ‘n’ to see the place the new Lightning Lane sign on the promenade.
Lately, we’ve spotted signs of Lightning Lane at various Disney World attractions, which is surely a sign that the new Genie + and Pay-Per-Ride system will start soon. So far, Disney has only said it will begin in the fall of 2021.
Upon returning, we saw a cast member create a design on the pavement with water and a broom.
Of course, we stopped to admire the art.
Now let’s see what the crowd levels were like around the Hollywood studios.
Crowd update from Hollywood studios
The entrance to the Hollywood studios was quite crowded, with long queues to enter the park.
We have also seen how waiting times increase, with the Tower of Terror in Wait 60 minutes…
… i Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway a 40 minutes.
That’s all for our Hollywood Studios update! Keep following DFB for more news on what’s happening at Disney World parks.
