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
Posted: Monday March 25, 2019 3:02pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

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.

Oh hey it's you! I loved that segment. That was terrific. What a great system you put together!

If anyone's interested in the future of the fixed time period for Batuu / Galaxy's Edge, you might want to listen to the latest (excellent) Disney Dish podcast by @lentesta and Jim Hill Media...

The cast bible for GE is so so deep in detail. Even I found it.... perhaps a little too much.

The IQs were probably already low. You can be dumb and still be a functioning member of society.

I'm all for Bill and Ted's Excellent Land, but not sure that would be a huge moneymaker.

That was my understanding from the very beginning. That Batuu was created specifically for that reason - that anyone in the Star Wars universe could have passed through there at some point, and it wasn't tied to any timeline in particular purposefully. Then...that didn't happen.

Why do you need to "find a timeline"?? Create one. Show me the timeline where Kermit and our US Presidents co-exist...and yet...

Star Wars has countless books, games, and comics to draw from too. I can't find a movie where Mickey Mouse and Buzz Lightyear appear together, but there they are in the same parade. Disney "overstoried" themselves into a corner and should just get out of it.

People on vacation are literally the dumbest people in existence. We were told at Kings Island that the second people walk through the gates their IQ drops at least 50%. Never underestimate how stupid people are.
