If you think you know the way to Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort, Disney is changing it. The resort announced this morning that it will open the new road access to the theme park on November 8.
That means that guests no longer will be able to drive to the park via its current entrances off World Drive from the south and its smaller entrance off Buena Vista Drive from the north. Instead, the main entrance to the Studios park will move to the east side of the parking lot, with primary access coming from a ramp off Osceola Parkway.
Here's Disney's map:
So if you are driving to Disney World from Interstate 4, to get to Disney's Hollywood Studios you will take the FL-417 Osceola Parkway exit. But instead of proceeding to World Drive to get to the Studios entrance, you will take a new entrance ramp just past the Art of Animation Resort. If you are on Buena Vista Drive, you will be directed to head south on Victory Way to pick up the new Studios entrance road instead of pulling straight into the parking lot. (That existing entrance will become for buses only.)
Again, the changes take effect on November 8. Until then, you drive to Disney's Hollywood Studios as before. And even after then, construction will be continuing around the park's front, as Disney works on the new Disney Skyway gondola system that will connect DHS to the Caribbean Beach hotel, going on to the Art of Animation and Pop Century, as well as the new Riviera Resort and Epcot.
The moves will help prepare Disney's Hollywood Studios for the expected onslaught of guests when the highly anticipated new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land opens late next year.Tweet
