Backlot - the days are numbered
The days of the backlot as we know it are over. A major expansion of Walt Disney Studios Park was announced in February 2018, some of which will take place in the backlot area. The new Marvel area will find its place here.
While, for almost a year, nothing noticeable happened after the announcement but there have been some changes since April 2019. The Armageddon: Special Effects attraction was closed and the Armadillo parked in front of it was removed. In September 2019, the Rock'n'Roller Coaster closed to be transformed into a Marvel roller coaster. More and more fences and closures followed, so that you can no longer get into this area at all.
The only exception is the stunt show. It is still open and there are two to three performances in the stunt arena every day. Access is now via a new path signposted in Walt Disney Studios Park. Should you not be able to find it, please speak to one of the Cast Members on site.
