Sidewalk By Guest Relations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Closed for Park Entry

Disney has now closed the sidewalk along by Guest Relations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for park entry.  Guests coming from the parking lots on that side liked to use this entry, as it would save walk time.  The alternate route for these parking lots means crossing the street and walking around the bus stops to get to the entry of the park.  Now this will be the only way to enter the park, as it appears the extra entry point is closed.  The sidewalk will remain available as a means to exit the park, but just not to enter.

We suspect that the removal of this entry point is to help streamline the bag check and metal detector checks upon guest entry.  It is likely an extra burden to staff and properly secure two entry points.  This also allows Disney to control the flow of entry traffic better.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
