Toy Story Land entrance Soundstage 4 demolition
Posted: Tuesday September 19, 2017 9:04am EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

The removal of Soundstage 4 at Disney's Hollywood Studios is nearing completion to make way for the entrance to the upcoming Toy Story Land.

The recent Hurricane Irma preparations meant the construction scrim was removed, giving a look at what is left of the old soundstage.

The entrance that will be made available with the soundstage demolition can be seen in the lower right corner of the image below.

Soundstage 4 was most recently home to the Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow attraction, and later a Mickey Mouse meet and greet.

I would rather see them use the Animation Courtyard for something better than a kids playground area... Work that in adjacent to Toystoryland... Allow the Animation Courtyard to become the hub of a series of attractions based on multiple Disney animation films tied together with a 1940s Toontown-like environment....

I think animation courtyard is a good spot for a new play area. Get rid of Star Wars Launch Bay

I have been thinking the same thing! It is an obvious component to add. Especially since half of the decorations look like you should be able to play on them. Not to mention they got rid of the Honey I shrunk the Kids play area for this whole expansion. Now there’s no play area whatsoever in the park…

A few more flat rides in TSL would be nice, but the lack of a play area is such a glaring missed opportunity. A land filled with oversized toys, but kids can’t even interact with them. A land themed to a backyard, yet you are confined to a single straight-line path and have nowhere to run around. It’s interesting that Universal (“the teen park”) does such a better job than Disney at building immersive playgrounds for little kids.

Last I checked, an Emperor outranks a King. :p

“Are penguins endangered? Because I will send all of my armies of Knocknasheega Little People to make them so if Disney so much as touches the OG Tower of Terror, especially that fiend who deigns to call himself MISTER.” - King Brian of Knocknasheega, directly stated to imagineer97

Tower of Terror to Doctor Strange. Almost no changes except the story from Twilight Zone ghosts to being trapped in the Astral Plane. RnRC to Incredicoaster. Theater of the Stars to GotG Awesome Mix Tape. Add in a Baymax ride using FoP tech, and a Super Kitties Disney Jr. flat ride. In TSL, continuing past the new restaurant, raze the back of house and add in more TSL rides: RC Racers, Army Men parachute drop tower, Critter Carousel, etc...

What a beautiful photo. Nothing like the parks at night, you really dont even have to do anything just look around and enjoy. I think tomorrowland is a hodgepodge of stuff and doesnt look great in the daytime, but at night especially from above either people mover or astro orbitor is STUNNING.

Didn't Universal kind of do that in Islands Of Adventure?

If we are imagineering, I always thought they could make a decent super hero city area with different minilands like Fantasyland. Make it a city like environment and have areas dedicated to the Incredibles, Big Hero six, Guardians, Dr. Strange, possibly additions could be Wakanda and Buzz Lightyear (from the tv show). Obviously people would ask where Iron man was... but it could still make a good land.

Well they couldn't call it Marvel land nor had all the major characters.... so no don't think that would have worked

Well, I do...I just coined a new nickname for the defunct ride.
