It has been a BUSY few days at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
With new merchandise, character meet and greets changing, and some ongoing construction, there’s a lot to check out. Thankfully, we were there to take note of all the news and pass it along to you guys — this way you won’t miss ANYTHING from Hollywood Studios before your trip!
Hollywood Studios Food Updates
Hollywood & Vine
As we mentioned above, many character meet and greets have gone back to their non-social distanced versions. This also means that there were some changes to character dining in Disney World.
Hollywood & Vine is the character meal at Hollywood Studios, and as of April 18th, guests can once again hug the characters and get autographs while they dine. This is the case for both the Disney Junior character breakfast and the lunch/dinner meal with Minnie Mouse and friends.
Hollywood Studios Attraction Updates
Character Meet & Greets
Not all the character meet and greets around the park were back to normal, but some key offerings were. Mickey and Minnie at Red Carpet Dreams were allowing hugs and autographs, and we got a truly magical moment with our favorite mice!
But near the front of the park, we still spotted the socially distanced Donald and Daisy Duck character sighting. They were up on the balcony above the bathroom, waving to guests below.
These two don’t have a set meet and greet space in the park, so it makes sense that they’re still here for now, but we’ll be on the lookout to see if they move.
Hollywood Studios Merchandise Updates
Mickeys of Hollywood
Now for the big one — merchandise! First up, they had the Priya doll from Turning Red here, which we hadn’t yet spotted at the other parks.
Also here, we spotted a new Frozen 2 water bottle for kids. It has all your favorite characters, including Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and more. It’s the perfect accessory to keep those kiddos hydrated on a long park day. You can pick up the bottle for $12.99.
We also spotted the new Mickey Mouse: The Main Attraction series here, it’s inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean. Make sure to check out our post for the full details and all the items in the collection.
Legends of Hollywood
Down Sunset Boulevard in Legends of Hollywood, we found even MORE new items, starting with the Stitch Graduation Pandora Charm. It’s not exactly traditional graduation jewelry, but boy is it fun!
And speaking of new jewelry, there was an Annual Passholder exclusive necklace here a few days later. The design features the AP logo inside a pair of Mickey ears and will cost you a whopping $125 to purchase.
Looking for something a little more budget-friendly? Well, there are two new t-shirts on the racks! First is a Mary Poppins design on a dark tank for $36.99. It’s about to be summer, and this breezy shirt will be a good addition to your park wardrobe.
And the other option is a new shirt inspired by the Pixar classic, Monsters, Inc. It’s also $36.99 and has a design with all the characters from the movie.
This store was also home to the new Dooney & Bourke collection for Disney World’s 50th Anniversary. Get all the details at the link below!
Over at Keystone Clothiers, there were new Marvel FigPins. The three designs featured Taskmaster and Red Guardian from Black Widow, as well as one made to look like The Incredible Hulk.
You can get any of these three for $15.99 each.
Tatooine Traders is a great hidden gem for Star Wars merchandise, and inside we found the Myths & Fables Book for sale. It features unique tales from around the galaxy, so hardcore fans will definitely want to get their hands on this one.
Currently, you can pick up a copy for $44.99.
Celebrity 5 & 10
Over at Celebrity 5 & 10, there’s a Star Wars version of the Frozen 2 water bottle for kids, featuring Baby Yoda/Grogu and The Mandalorian! Just like the other one, this bottle is $12.99.
And this store is also home to the Vault Collection, where we’re constantly finding new 50th Anniversary items. This week, there was a new Vault Collection Coffee Mug!
You can pick this up for $14.99 — what a magical way to drink your coffee!
