Anyone familiar with Hollywood Studios will notice a big change happening at Echo Lake. It’s empty! No need to panic though, it’s just going through a little refurbishment.

I love that we can take a peak at what Gertie looks like below the water line! The lake has been drained in order for it to be repainted. Dinosaur Gertie and Min and Bill’s Dockside Diner will also get some love with a fresh paint job.

Additional adjustments in the landscaping around the area are also in the works.

All of these updates are scheduled to be completed by October. Min and Bill’s and Dinosaur Gertie will continue to operate as normal.
