The permits show that Disney would like to build "water infrastructure" that is need for 799 acres of land including the 240-acre parcel at the Studios. The work that needs to be completed is for "parking expansion and rehabilitative construction" of the park.

Disney announced during the D23 Expo in August that not only would Disney's Hollywood Studios get Toy Story Land but a Star Wars-themed land would also be built at the theme park. Both areas will have new attractions, restaurants, and stores.

Construction is expected to begin in January 2016 and be completed by October 2018.

Sounds superb but please put up more sheltered places from sun and more sitting areas standing for ages to go into a place with tired kids is not fun but you are very good at hiding how big a que is until you get into one . Your food restaurants we were in didn't cut the mustard food not hot again ques to long why can't you do carvery people go up serve themselfs only a thought . All I remember of or visit to Disney is queuing and standing in hot sun as every place with cover was taken .
