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!
Good morning from Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We are here to check out some new for 2019 offerings that aren't "Star Wars Land!"
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.
This just in! You can now get WARM Chocolate Chip Num Num cookies at Hollywood Studios in the “Incredible Celebration” area of the park!
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!
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.

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