Disney has sent us a press release announcing the arrival of a new set of background audio loops that set a new tone for several of the park's unique areas. This is an exciting change for the future of the park and one that frequent guests of the park may recognize as they walk around!

Every great Hollywood story has a soundtrack that sets the tone and supports the narrative, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios is no exception. Debuting Jan. 11, updated arrangements around the park will put a bounce in your step, and you’ll feel as if you’ve walked right into your own adventure.

At the park’s Main Entrance, big band arrangements of familiar Disney tunes get your day started off right. As you enter the park, the music transitions to popular songs from the 30s and 40s, also in the big band style that comes to a crescendo as you approach the Chinese Theater. Throughout the park, the music complements each area’s setting and timeframe perfectly. From brassy horns near Echo Lake and jazz at the BaseLine Tap House, to the sounds of live performances outside Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, it’s music to your ears!

Of course, music is just one part of your experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. There’s also the park’s unprecedented growth that features even more of what today’s Hollywood has to offer, whether it be in movies, music, television or theater. In 2018, we’re rolling out the red carpet for Guests to experience the first part of the park’s blockbuster expansion with Toy Story Land where Guests will step right into Andy’s backyard and play alongside his toys. And in 2019, another of our Guests’ favorite worlds will come to life when Guests will play a starring role in their own story at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in 2019.

With new experiences, music and more, the Disney’s Hollywood Studios of the future is a place where imagined worlds become real adventures to explore together. Here’s to Hollywood!

Heard this name suggestion, on another Disney site....

Disney's MOVIE Kingdom :mickey:

They remarked that this is also in keeping
with the 'Animal', and 'Magic' Kingdoms in the Resort.


And after all of Disney's recent acquisitions of other mega-studio companies/brands.......well, why not?

The name works for me. :smile:
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

I went into this park the other day not really looking forward to it and ended up loving it. It may take a while but i am going to do a full trip review.

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2018/02/d23j-update-star-wars-galaxys-edge/

Just moments ago, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Bob Chapek shared an update on the progress of the highly anticipated land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and shared a sneak peek at the unique Toydarian merchandise guests will find exclusively in the land.

At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will visit the planet of Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two attractions that take detail and immersion to the next level: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

Guests will also be able to explore a street market run by a Toydarian, a character first introduced in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” Among his wares will be handcrafted toys made by local artisans, like those seen above.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open at both the Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resorts in 2019.

Our first Mickey-themed ride-through attraction, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, is opening in 2019 – and we have new, exciting details to share!

During D23 Expo Japan, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, announced the opening year and showed how we’re pulling out all of the stops to make Mickey’s first attraction an unbelievable experience for everyone. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will feature a new catchy theme song created especially for the attraction as well as a new experience that defies logic that we’re calling 2 ½-D. No glasses required.

On the attraction, the fun begins when you see the premiere of a new cartoon short with Mickey and Minnie getting ready for a picnic. As they head out, they drive alongside a train and find out that the engineer is Goofy. Then, one magical moment lets you step into the movie and on Goofy’s train for a wacky, wild ride.

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will put you inside the wacky and unpredictable world of a Mickey Mouse Cartoon Short where you’re the star and anything can happen. And for the first time, we shared a preview of what the cars will look like when you board the attraction for a zany, out-of-control adventure filled with surprising twists and turns.

The teams helping create the attraction are currently working with partners at Disney Television Animation—the people who create the popular and award-winning Mickey Shorts – to keep the characters and story authentic and to make sure you’re able to step through the movie screen and join Mickey and his friends like never before.

Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for future updates on the Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2018/02/d23j-update-star-wars-hotel/

Last summer, we announced plans for an immersive Star Wars-inspired resort to be built at Walt Disney World Resort. Tonight we’re happy to share more details on what this thrilling new resort, which will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, will be like.

This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with complete immersion into an authentic Star Wars story. Guests’ journey through space will start when everyone departs together for a multiday Stars Wars adventure by boarding a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during a voyage through the galaxy.



At the resort, guests immediately become active citizens of the galaxy and can dress up in the proper attire. Every resort window will also have a view into space. The opportunity for immersion at this resort will also stand out among all Disney resorts around the globe, as it will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a total Star Wars experience.

Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future updates on this fascinating place!

I am so excited for both of these experiences! The Train Ride can be really cool, but we don't know what technology it will use yet. There's rumors, but nothing concrete yet.

But that resort, being like a "Cruise in a Box" concept sounds really interesting!

The Mickey ride sounds like it's going to be incredible. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being the best attraction of the entire expansion.

I really give Disney a ton of credit for taking on this attraction because it probably isn't the smartest move in terms of getting a return on investment (and based off the construction time frame and technology it seems like quite a large investment). They are opening up two giant new lands in the park over the next two summers that are extremely hyped. From the general public's perspective, this ride probably won't be a flashy addition considering it's taking over a preexisting building and replacing a former attraction. So it may not bring in too many new or 'unique' guests to the park. But it will go a long way in making the park experience more enjoyable for all the people who aren't able to get Star Wars fast passes or even into the land in general during its initial summer.

I'm not into Star Wars, so I doubt I'll ever pay the premium to stay there...but the concept of a completely immersive hotel experience sounds awesome!

I also love the idea of "old timey cartoon" being used as the theme of a dark ride.

Will be interesting to see how this resort will be "seamlessly connected" to Galaxy Edge.
