We stopped by Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see what was in store for us at the Hollywood that never was – and always will be.

Star Wars Rise of the Resistance
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Many parties were thankfully practicing social distancing.

Toy Story Land has been plagued with maintenance issues since day one, most notably paint peeling in numerous places.

The “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!” theater temporarily reopened as a Mobile Order wait area.

Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!

Guests waiting for their Backlot Express Mobile Order can enter the exit of the theater and sit down in available rows. Do note that while the area is designated for Mobile Order guests, guests simply looking for a shaded place to sit are also welcome to enjoy the space. However, guests must keep their masks on at all times, as this is not an assigned Relaxation Station—those are over in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and at Star Wars Launch Bay.

To aid social distancing, some rows are roped off and entire segments are also blocked out to avoid guests sitting filling up entire rows.

Cast members are stationed at the base of the stairs to prevent guests from jumping onto the stage and making stunt shows of their own.
