There will soon be a place to preview all the new attractions and lands coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. One Man’s Dream is being reimagined into Walt Disney Presents, which will display models and more from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Toy Story Land, and more beginning in mid-September.

One Man’s Dream, the mini museum displaying relics from Walt Disney’s formative years, sketches, props, and everyone’s favorite creepy Abraham Lincoln animatronic, has been in flux for a few years now. Originally opened to commemorate Walt Disney’s 100th birthday, the film at the end of the walkthrough attraction is often preempted to show previews of upcoming Disney movies, and an area was recently added in the back to house a character meet-and-greet, currently home to Star-Lord and Baby Groot.

While it’s uncertain exactly how much will change (Disney says the area will still display “historic items from Walt Disney’s history”) we’re super excited about what’s being added.

Get ready to see a portion of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge model, similar to what was on display at D23 Expo in July, a model for Toy Story Land, concept art for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, ride vehicle models, concept art and more.

Disneyland had a similar area in Disney California Adventure at Walt Disney Imagineering Blue Sky Cellar, which displayed models and teasers for Cars Land, Buena Vista Street, and more. That space closed in 2013, but with this announcement from Hollywood Studios it seems likely that it will reopen soon with information about Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and the forthcoming changes to Paradise Pier.
