WDW's Hollywood Studios & Magic Kingdom New Offerings!

Mon Jan 21, 2019 10:43 pm

Walt Disney World is constantly changing and adding new things all the time it seems. And while we all know about the BIG projects like Pandora, Star Wars, Toy Story Land, Tron, etc, there's always a lot of smaller upgrades that happen also, but sometimes get overshadowed!

Thankfully, Disney invited us out to come take a look at some the "new for 2019" new offerings that have just started up this week that you might have otherwise missed if you were looking towards the bigger picture!

Let's start out at Hollywood Studios...

This is how the parking lot cast members pin trade! I kind of love this! :lmao:

Good morning from Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

We are here to check out some new for 2019 offerings that aren't "Star Wars Land!" :Pr

We got to check out this new "Incredible Celebration" area which is where the entrance to Toy Story Mania used to be!

There is all kinds of fun photo ops in this area.

Image
This just in! You can now get WARM Chocolate Chip Num Num cookies at Hollywood Studios in the “Incredible Celebration” area of the park!

Image
Trust me... these are DELICIOUS!!! I've you've had them at DCA in California, they are the same and they were wonderful!

Edna Mode has also opened up her design studio where you can come and say hello to her!

Some of Edna's finest supers costumes are represented in this area.

There is also an Incredibles dance party!

Which one of us is the REAL Mr. Incredible?

Yes, I know that she is the real star of the family!

Here's the menu for the bakery where you can get the cookies...

And a look inside the warmer where they stay nice and gooey!

I got to meet Mike & Sulley in their new meet & greet area!

These guys taught me how to scare!

And of course if you want some adorable Monsters Inc plush, you can get it here!

Image
Let's hop over to Magic Kingdom⁠...

Going to head into the Town Square Theater area...

Where you can now meet Mickey & Minnie together in their new Celebration Costumes!

Image
They look awesome, don't they? :mickey:

Image
We got to check out Mickey & Minnie's show celebrating their 90th birthday!

Wait a moment... what is this I see? CLARICE????

I love that Clarice is in this show! It's like a little part of Tokyo Disney has landed in Orlando! :lover:

Image
So great to see Mickey, Minnie and all their friends...

...celebrating in the new Move It, Shake It, MousekeDance It show at Magic Kingdom!

Image
And since I'm at Magic Kingdom and had some FastPasses, why not ride some coasters? In fact, I was able to ride ALL FOUR coasters at the park and I have a video to share with you!

This video not only contains on-ride video of all four coasters but also meeting Mickey & Minnie and the new show! Be sure to watch the entire video!

Another nice bonus was watching the Muppets tell the story of US History in Liberty Square. While this isn't "new", if you haven't seen it yet, you HAVE to! It's hilarious!

Huge THANK YOU to Mickey & Minnie (And Disney) for inviting us out!

Now... POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!

I really love the Celebration Costume that Minnie has.

and great video showing the park, the coasters, and the show! I totally forgot Barnstormer is there. . really time for me to go back to Magic Kingdom, it's been way too long.

thanks for the report, Robb

(and I love the little girl on BTM yelling at her Dad, "Daddy don't DO that!" when he tries to touch the bones as you go under).

Great report, as always. I specifically made a point to watch the Muppets show when we visited last time because we were in the area. It really was quite well done and one of those things that would be great to accidentally stumble upon. The smaller scale entertainment like this that you don't plan your day around can end up being really great still. I particularly enjoyed this, the acrobats in Animal Kingdom and the Pandora drum show.

I was curious what they were going to do with that "dead end" section of the park after the old entrance to Toy Story mania was relocated but it looks like they filled it in nicely with some meet and greets and other nice things.

I still haven't watched the Muppets show, I always kind of forget it's there, shame on me haha.

I like the Edna Mode meet-and-greet. She's quite a scene stealer in the Incredibles movies.

I hung outside of the Christmas shop while the rest of my group shopped last June and watched the Muppets history show. It's great street entertainment and fits the area perfectly.

Nice report. Disney seems to be in a nice groove of offering up these subtle changes that enhance the experience.

Its not that anybody thinks that its a bad ride -- its just that it was opened in 1991. In general, the hottest FP+'s and the longest wait times go to the attractions that were built in the past few years. A few exceptions are made for a handful of rides (like Space Mountain, Peter Pan, Rock n' Roller Coaster, etc.) but its not unusual at all to see older attractions that are still pretty good be walk-ons mostly just because of their age. Disney has A LOT of repeat business and once the guests who have been going there forever have ridden something enough, they move onto other stuff.

^Did you actually read the report? He's not talking about Muppet Vision 4D at Studios, he's talking about the relatively NEW Muppet American History Street Show at Magic Kingdom.

Wow Clarece in the US! I never thought I'd see the day but I approve.
