There are still a significant number of construction walls up at Disney's Hollywood Studios, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The park has officially opened it's newly constructed bus loop and renamed all the parking lots. The new bus loop is stunning and a big improvement from the temporary loop that guests have encountered over the last couple of months. This new area is a few extra steps away from the park's main entrance in comparison to the original bus loop at this park. This is mainly due to a new tram pick up point and bag check area under development also near the park's entrance. With the large crowds anticipated to pour into the park when Galaxy's Edge opens, Hollywood Studios certainly needed an upgrade when it came to traffic flow at the entrance.
The new covered bus waiting areas also provide much more shade and protection from the elements than the previous loop did. The structures fall beautifully in line with the iconic art deco design of the entrance that was heavily inspired by the now demolished Pan-Pacific Auditorium. The new bus loop is also located nearby the upcoming Disney Skyliner station that will connect guests to Disney's Art of Animation, Disney's Pop Century, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, the upcoming Riviera Resort and Epcot.
Additionally, Disney has decided to not only improve on the traffic flow when entering the park, but also to give all the parking lots brand new names. Gone are the lots celebrating the different entertainment industries found in Hollywood such as music, television, stage and more. Now, each parking lot is named after a Disney character that specifically calls Disney's Hollywood Studios home; Mickey, Minnie, Jessie, Buzz, Olaf and BB-8.
