217: Disney’s Hollywood Studios: 30 Years, 30 Properties

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is turning 30! And if the new logo and the new parking signs are any indication, then characters from Frozen, Toy Story, and Star Wars are to be the official faces of the park, moving forward. But these are just the latest franchises to join the park’s deep well of past properties and characters, and on this week’s show we’re looking back at all of them! Join us and special guest Marshal Knight for a deep dive into 30 properties that have had a presence at Disney’s Hollywood Studios since the park first opened. Think of it as a DHS yearbook…

In another Mad Chatter game, we test our knowledge of which celebrities have handprints in front of the Chinese Theater, and which do not. Plus, Jeremy shares about a park scavenger hunt he hosted, and we discuss the latest Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge news.

Be sure to find Marshal on Twitter (@Marshal_Knight) and Instagram (@marshalknight) and let him know you enjoyed hearing him on the show!
