April 2, 2016 will go down as a major turning point for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s the day when the Streets of America – a land that’s been a part of the theme park since opening day in 1989 – will be shuttered forever.
Also closing: the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show (opened May 2005), Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure (opened 1990), Studio Catering Co., and several other retail locations.
The closures make way for a major overhaul of the park. Disney plans to use the space for two new lands dedicated to the Toy Story and Star Wars movie franchises.
