    Disney's Hollywood Studios is embarking on a large park renovation that has already gotten underway and will likely continue or the next four to five years. This includes two new major lands, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and Toy Story Land. Other park improvement are going to be made over time as well. Below is a list of construction updates, announcements, permits, and other park renovation updates.

    I never found a way to link directly to the SFWMD permits, although you can link directly to the individual documents under each permit.

    An update on #1, Disney has submitted some more information that the SFWMD requested so that this can continue with it's review. It currently has a review deadline of December 23rd.

    They just need to get on with it now, start clearing the area, get the new stuff in and make people happy and spend money.

    They did remove the large fuel tank for Catastrophe Canyon sometime earlier this year, but based on aerial photos of DHS that is the only thing visible that has changed. I am wondering if that removal is somehow connected with why the backlot tour closed when it did.
