In addition, the park unveiled a collection of merchandise, food and drinks commemorating the occasion, and guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios on Wednesday receive a special 30th anniversary button, map and poster (while supplies last).
The park's past, present and exciting future are recurring themes on this special day. It was May 1, 1989, when Hollywood celebrities walked the grand-opening red carpet. The park has evolved since those early days, when it was a fully functioning television and movie production studio providing a peek behind the scenes at moviemaking magic. Disney's Hollywood Studios today brings more stories to life in new ways, inviting guests to let their own adventures begin in immersive new worlds.
A bevy of new and upcoming experiences anchor a park undergoing a historic transformation, including the recently opened Toy Story Land, Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy, An Incredible Celebration on Pixar Place, and Disney Junior Dance Party! On Aug. 29, 2019, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will allow guests to live their own Star Wars adventures in a new, 14-acre immersive land, followed in spring 2020 by the planned opening of Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, the first ride-through attraction in Disney Parks history to feature Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.
For the park's 30th anniversary celebration, Disney lifted the curtain on an array of special experiences, merchandise, culinary delights and more:
