Around the rest of the park, Guests can expect to find Mickey Glimmer & Shimmer Brownies, as well as Glimmer & Shimmer Churros! (Now if Fantasmic could just reopen so we could enjoy one of those churros during the show…)

As with the other three Walt Disney World theme parks, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is home to character statues from the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection including Joe from Soul, Edna Mode from The Incredibles, R2-D2 and BB-8 from Star Wars, and more!
