PHOTOS - Changes come to Grand Avenue and Star Tours areas ahead of Galaxy's Edge opening this summer

Mar 25, 2019 in "Disney's Hollywood Studios"

Grand Avenue construction pre-Star Wars

Grand Avenue will become one of the main entrances into Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and work is underway on preparing the area for the expected crowds.

As you can see from the aerial view above, the old speeder bike outside Star Tours has been removed, and much of the queue for the Mickey and Minnie meet and greet has been removed.

Similar to the opening of Pandora, it is likely that guests will need to be a holding area prior to entering Galaxy's Edge, and Grand Avenue appears to be where that is likely to happen.

Construction walls surround much of the area, and a new Disney Vacation Club kiosk has setup shop across from the Baseline Tap House.
