With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land currently under construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the park is truly in the middle of an exciting transformation.

Today, we wanted to share another park update that will very soon give you a thrilling, up-close look at what’s to come at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The One Man’s Dream attraction is currently being reimagined into Walt Disney Presents, which like its predecessor, will continue showcasing historic items from Walt Disney’s history, such as sketches, photos and storyboards. But wait – Walt Disney Presents will also act as a preview center where guests explore what’s next for the park. Starting in mid-September, you’ll be able to view concept art, ride vehicle maquettes and a never-before-seen model for Toy Story Land. A portion of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge model also will be on display, as well as concept art for the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction.

The attraction will also continue to host greetings with characters like Star-Lord and baby Groot, plus special sneak previews of upcoming Disney films.

So, tell us – which attraction model are you most excited to see? Tell us in the comments section below!


  • I’m most excited to see the film about Walt’s life – you know, the man that is the whole reason Walt Disney World even exists??? Sure, it’s great to have previews of upcoming movies in there, but it would be even better to actually acknowledge Walt Disney and educate people about him.

  • Hey Jennifer! We are thrilled they are keeping this open as we love going through every time we visit!

  • Can’t wait to see the preview of Toy Story Land! Happy to see it getting some love, instead of just Star Wars.

  • What date? By 9/17?

  • I’m really looking forward to seeing the model of Galaxy’s Edge. Something I would love to see again in the theater at the end of One Man’s Dream, is the animation video with Robin Williams and Walter Cronkite where animators show how they work by producing and showing a short with Robin Williams voicing one of the lost boys in Peter Pan. It was fabulous, and I really miss seeing it.

  • Heck yes! So glad visitors will have a chance to see these in person! It was one of the highlights of D23, and it was the part I wanted to see the most!

  • Star Wars…!!! ????

  • It’s great that a preview area will be added to DHS hopefully the preview area also returns to Anaheim as previous years. Both resort have some interesting projects coming it would be great to see models of what great things we will see in the future

  • We enjoy immensely visiting “One Man’s Dream” sadly, this past May it had a preview of Pirates albeit fun we did miss seeing the movie on Walt.
    We are hoping, as you say, all that incredible memorabilia and history of WALT will remain intact.
    We cannot ever forget about the incredible imagination of Walter Elias Disney and how it “all began with a mouse”….
    We are psyched to see the openings of the two new areas of Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land too!!!! How exciting will that be!?!
    Keep adding and changing and re-Imagineering but keep Walt and his true vision close, as he truly was a great visionary.
    Just think how mundane life would be without WDL and WDW!

    I know, unimaginable!


  • That’s such a better title and use of this attraction (exhibit?). Including seasonal character meets like you’ve done previously with Moana, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc the name is now very fitting and I love it! Can’t wait to see the new models on display when we arrive this November!

  • When will this be completed?

  • My faimly used to take our Christmas photos in front of One Mans Dream every year

  • Will One Man’s Dream remain open during this reimagining?

  • Very excited that the history is being preserved while also welcoming the new! Any idea if the short film of Walt’s life will still be played as well? Thanks!
