Breaking: New Area Coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Disney has decided to throw a few loops this week. Even after all the big D23 announcements last week they have thrown several new announcements into the mix that seem to have come out of nowhere. Don’t worry about the changes though, Dad has you covered.

A new area and pub are coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. BaseLine Tap House will open this fall with a theme representing districts and cultures of Los Angeles and will serve mostly beer and wine from California. There will be a few food items on the menu such as a charcuterie board and Bavarian pretzels. BaseLine will be in a reimaged area being called Grand Avenue. This is the first they have even mentioned the name Grand Avenue. Dad’s guessing the area will be located over near the Muppets just outside of the new entrance to Galaxy’s Edge. I’ll let you know as I hear more. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORYThe Dress Shop Returns!
