The Disney World parks are constantly changing, especially with the holiday season quickly approaching.
Today we’re taking a look inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see what’s new. We found a bunch of new souvenirs, some holiday decorations, and an update on the ride wait times for you!
We’re going to start out with some of the most exciting updates: holiday decorations are going up all over the place in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Hollywood Studios Decorations Update
We already saw the iconic stars go up on Sunset Boulevard earlier this month…
…but now more holiday lights are up on the bushes outside the Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant.
It can be hard to tell at first, but the lights run all over the landscaping.
And over on Echo Lake, more decorations have appeared in the form of Christmas tree ornaments scattered over the water.
The ornaments look gorgeous during the day but just wait ’til you see them glowing at night.
We can’t wait to see even more holiday cheer come to the Disney parks soon!

Hollywood Studios Merchandise Update
There was a LOT of new merchandise when we stopped by this week.
The Darkroom had a few new phone cases, including two that flipped open and had spaces for cards inside. They both have a wrist loop as well, to make carrying your phone less of a hassle. The first was Mickey Mouse-themed, with a black leather case and Mickey on the front.
Inside, it said “one of a kind.”
And the back had “mousin around.” There were yellow and red accents, just like Mickey’s classic outfit.
The other new flip phone case also has a leather feel, but this one is Mandalorian themed. It has the adorable Baby Yoda on the front…
…a Mandalorian helmet inside…
…and a continuation of Grogu’s huge ear on the back.
Each of these phone cases is $34.99. There was also a new phone case themed after the Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction.
And finally, we found a new Jack Skellington pin for Halloween. (Apparently, this is the only thing in Hollywood Studios that remembers Halloween is still happening.)
It has Jack and his ghost dog Zero in a pumpkin patch with the words “Happy Halloween” and “2021” written in the background. You can get it for $15.99.
At Keystone Clothiers, we spotted a Star Wars t-shirt that’s covered in graphics related to the galaxy far, far away.
You can also get this tee at Tatooine Traders over by the Star Tours attraction. It’s $36.99, wherever you buy it.
When we got off of the Tower of Terror ride, we checked out some of the spooky merchandise in the attraction’s gift shop. One item wasn’t so spooky, but we thought it was really cool anyways. It’s a zip-up jacket that has the old Disney World logo on the front.
The back has “Walt Disney World” written across it, like you’ll see on lots of spirit jerseys around the park.
You can get the jacket for $99.99.
Legends of Hollywood
Legends of Hollywood had a few new Pandora bracelet charms, all in the Beauty and the Beast collection.
We saw charms of Belle (and her gorgeous yellow dress)…
…one that has Lumiere and Cogsworth on one side and Belle with Chip on the other…
…Belle and the Beast together…
…and the enchanted rose.
We can’t get over how beautiful these charms are.
But if you wanted a more casual find, this shop also had a new Mickey and Minnie Crop Top, which shows Mickey (or three Mickeys, actually…we’re not sure why) running towards Minnie.
You can get the top for $29.99.
Majestic Theater had a couple of new to us clothing items, including this lovely pink Minnie Mouse cardigan.
It has decals of Minnie on the back, and an embroidered Minnie Mouse signature on the front lapel. You can get it for $59.99.
There was also an inspirational Disney Princess t-shirt that said “Be the one who went for it.” It has little images from various princesses, like a seashell for Ariel, a compass for Pocahontas, and a paint palette for Rapunzel.
The princess tee was $36.99.
Frozen Fractal Gifts
And our last stop was Frozen Fractal Gifts, which had a new sensory-friendly Frozen t-shirt.
The shirt has Anna on one side and Elsa on the other!
“Sensory Friendly” means that the seams are flat, there isn’t a tag inside, and the fabric is soft.
You can get this tee for $24.

Hollywood Studios Crowds Update
On our way around the park, we checked out a few of the ride wait times as well. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance had a 110-minute wait time when we stopped by…
…Toy Story Mania was at 45 minutes…
…and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster had a 50-minute wait.
So the times are definitely up from this time last month (remember when Disney World was a ghost town in September?).
