Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Star Wars Weekends Preview, D-Street and Epcot Changes – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

So much is happening around property now (but isn’t that the way it always is?), Star Wars Weekends (below, left and right) is about to kick off it’s first weekend!

Bounty Hunters such as Boba Fett will pose with fans at this backdrop (below, left). Banners are now up featuring many of the Star Wars characters including Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) who is appearing weekend 3: June 4 – 6 (below, right).

C3PO and R2D2 are featured on this banner (below, left). The very popular Hyperspace Hoopla will be playing on the stage next to Star Tours (below, right).

Star Wars merchandise is be available at Boba’s Bounty and the Dark Side Depot (this year in a new location across from the Studio Catering Company restaurant and the Backlot Tram Tour) includes t-shirts and helmets (below left and right).

Click the images below to see the weekend #1 guide map with times and locations for Star Wars shows and character meet and greets!

The Rock and Roller Coaster is set to reopen Friday (below, left). Villains in Vogue is also open again, and features fewer villains, and more other items (below, right).

Vinylmation is featured heavily (below, left) and there is still a wealth of Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise (below, right).

Over at Downtown Disney, D-Street (below, left) has rearranged much of it’s merchandise, the store now holds more than 30% more. The cases were moved to the front (below, right).

Unfortunately, the one item I will miss is the Adventurers Club zebra, which was a unique centerpiece for the store. You can see what the inside looks like (below left and right).

Video – D-Street Store Changes, 5/20/2010 – D-Street has made changes inside the store, including the removal of the Adventurers Club zebra (click HERE to see what the store looked like opening day).

Pollo Campero signs have been added to the wall outside the former McDonalds restaurant (below left and right).

I finished my day at Epcot where most topiaries and flowers from the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2010 are history (below left and right).

This beautiful flower display has been added where the dolphins promoting the film Oceans had been (below left and right).

The Glas and Porzellan shop in Germany has changed over the last number of months (or longer), I’d noticed the changes and now it’s been announced that a Werthers Originals shop will be here (below left and right).

The Sounds Like Summer concert series is just around the corner, and the American Gardens Theater (below left and right) is nearly ready for it!

The newly named Hacienda San Angel is being painted (below, left) and the Fantasia playground is being torn down (below, right).

The beautiful flower quilt near the Imagination pavilion is now gone (below left and right). I’m looking forward to next years Flower and Garden Festival already!
