PHOTOS: A closer look at attractions set to close at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

in Disney's Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World

The excitement of the new Star Wars and Toy Story areas at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is definitely creating a buzz, but with that buzz, comes many closing attractions due to construction.

Walt Disney World announced on the Disney Parks Blog that the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show is set to close this spring. This show, as well as many other attractions around the Streets of America area including the Monsters Inc. meet-and-greet, will be closing on April 2, 2016.

The popular Earffel Tower will also be removed for construction. This tower has been in Disney’s Hollywood Studios since the grand opening in 1989. It has not been announced if they will be moving it to another area of the park.

This will be the largest expansion in park history.

Opening back in 2005, Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show was based off a show that originated in Disneyland Paris.


Youseguys Moychindice is probably the sign read the most. Park guests seem to always want to read it in their best “New York” accent.

Watto’s Grotto features Star Wars gear and merchandise. Once it closes, be sure to check out the new Launch Bay area for all Star Wars needs — until the new Star Wars area opens of course!


A popular quick service option, Studio Catering Co., will also be closing to prepare for the new park additions.

What are you most sad to see go?

    New York street, and the Osborne lights that went with is are going to be greatly missed during the holidays especially.

    But to be honest, this was a long time coming. If you remember, New York Street, along with residential street, was part of the “back lot tour”. With that completely gone, new your street (besides Christmas time) served no purpose at all and was just taking space.

    While i really won’t miss New York Street on its own, loosing Osborne lights during the holidays is going to leave a mark.

    I’m going to miss the Honey I shrunk the Kids play area. I’ve spent hours there and it’s always great to see friends photos from the same places.

    This article is titled “A closer look at attractions set to close…” and yet it’s really just a list with NO “closer look.” Way to turn your site into clickbait.

    Do you have any info about the Indy Stunt Spectacular? There was rumors that it would also close to make way for the Star Wars expansion, but I’m not up to date.
