When planning a Disney trip, it often seems like guests need to learn a new language! Disney parks lingo is extensive and sometimes confusing. Terminology like “lightning lane”, “quick service”, and “park hopper” flies off the tongue of Disney fans so frequently, yet it might be difficult for the average or first time park goer to understand.

One term used frequently in Disney parks jargon is “rope drop.” Rope drop essentially means the time that a particular park or experience opens. At Disney parks, cast members often literally drop a rope that holds back guests upon the opening of a particular theme park or land. This holds true in Disney’s Hollywood Studios too. Check out rope drop tips HERE.

Area Closed

This morning, entry into park was backed up this morning, causing a delay for guests. This may have been the cause because a major portion of Hollywood Boulevard remains closed now! In order to access this section, guests have to walk around an entire closed area.

Hollywood Boulevard is a popular place to shop offering unique items. At Keystone Clothiers, guests discover new merchandise collections created for The World’s Most Magical Celebration—a once-in-a-lifetime event honoring the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort as well as Star Wars and Marvel merchandise.

However, this morning a portion of Keystone Clothiers front facade supports appears to have collapsed completely to the ground! Not only that, but it brought down a light fixture too!

  1. I was supposed to leave for Florida today, but they canceled my flight and my travel agency said that Walt Disney World and Universal Studios was hit hard. Did you hear any of this?
