Today we are learning more details about some of the changes coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Muppet Courtyard and part of the former Streets of America is currently being reimagined into a new area called Grand Avenue.
Although we knew Grand Avenue was currently in the construction phase, the new piece of information is that the name Muppet Courtyard is going away.
When Grand Avenue opens this fall it will resemble present-day Los Angeles with facades of a music shop, loft apartments, and a tailor. This area will also include current shops and restaurants like PizzeRizzo and Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano.
Some changes have already been visible in the this new area including the renaming of the Muppets theater to “Grand Arts Theatre” complete with a brand-new marquee. This area will continue to house the “Muppet*Vision 3D” Show featuring Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang.
One of the new additions to Grand Avenue will be BaseLine Tap House. This corner pub will be set in a quaint brick building that pays homage to the building’s former life as the Figueroa Printing Company, a mom-and-pop print house that had ties to the Disney studios in nearby Burbank. BaseLine Tap House will feature California beers and wines along with a selection of small bites.
