Len Testa & Jim Hill continue their November 2018 walking tour of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. As they explore the part of this theme park that was formerly known as the Muppets Courtyard, Len & Jim discuss everything that the Imagineers have done in the past year to ready DHS for the opening of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.”


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

How the changes that have been recently made at the ABC Commissary – upping the quality & variety of the food that’s served at this fast casual as well as now delivering your order to your table – were all done in anticipation of all those Star Wars fans who are expected to come swarming into DHS in late 2019 / early 2020.

How the Baseline Tap House’s outdoor terrace was specifically created so that parents would then have a place where they could sit & & enjoy a California craft ale while their kids are inside of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” off exploring Black Spire Outpost

How PizzeRizzo’s October 2018 switch from being a quick service that was open every day to becoming a restaurant that now only operates on a seasonal basis is strictly a temporary change.

Given how long Guests may wind up waiting for their chance to enter “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” during its first year or so of operation, it’s really not a coincidence that the queue for this new “land” will be set up right across the way from one of DHS’ largest restroom facilities, the newly furbished Gonzo’s Royal Flush.
