Disney’s Hollywood Studios is kicking off 2019 with the introduction of a new logo to go along with lots of new shows and attractions coming to the park to help celebrate its 30th anniversary!
That’s right — on May 1, Walt Disney World Resort will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Studios. Here’s just some of what’s in store for the coming year.
- A new cinematic nighttime experience called the Wonderful World of Animation will debut May 1. The show will use state-of-the-art technology to take you on a magical journey through more than 90 years of Disney animation, all beginning with Mickey.
- Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is due to open this spring. During this new show, you’ll come face to face with racing legend Lightning McQueen, who will teach you about racing from his years of experience on the track. This will be the previously untold story of Lightning McQueen… as told by Lightning McQueen!
- Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will also open later this year in park’s iconic Chinese Theater. This will be the first ride-through attraction themed to Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse and will feature a new original story and theme song. The attraction will take you on a journey inside the wacky and unpredictable world of Disney Channel’s Emmy Award-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts. New technologies will transform the two-dimensional cartoon world into an astounding multi-dimensional experience. You can read more on what we learned about this attraction at a recent Destination D event here.
- Disney Skyliner will offer unique views later this year as guests float in gondolas that will drop them off at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (or Epcot) on roundtrips from Art of Animation, Pop Century, Caribbean Beach and the new Riviera Resort.
- Finally, the deeply immersive land of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in the Studios in late fall 2019. You’ll explore Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu, where you’ll find all manner of new sights, sounds, smells, tastes, characters and creatures from a galaxy far, far away. The land will also feature two thrilling new attractions: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
