Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge gobbled up “The Golden Girls” house at Disney Hollywood Studios.
Disney World needed to make room for Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge so they took down old businesses, attractions, rides and restaurants that existed on the old Studio Backlot Tour, which existed until 2014. The tour was “popular during a time when production companies actually flew to Florida to film things based in Florida,” according to The AV Club.
Exterior shots for “The Golden Girls” were filmed on a fake residential area that existed on the set. And the area included a “Golden Girls” house, as well as houses used for “Splash Too” and “Ernest Saves Christmas,” according to Disney.
Well, it’s gone now because of Galaxy’s Edge.
Howard Bowers, a Disney World fan and Bay Lake Society member, tweeted out photos of where the “Golden Girls” house would be now that it’s covered by Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.
It appears the house would be located between Ronto Roasters and Docking Bay 6.
Here are some of the photos to help you visualize there.
Someone asked me last week (I'm sorry that I can't find the tweet) where the Golden Girls house was in relation to Galaxy's Edge. The front door would be in the area of the yellow pin, which is between what looks like Ronto Roasters and Docking Bay 7. pic.twitter.com/reEMAjuvZ8— Howard Bowers (@GoAwayGreen) September 6, 2019
Here's Oga's location in 1995 and The Golden Girls house. These old satellite photos are blurry so I'm not sure exactly which house it was behind without spending an hour watching YouTube videos and matching the facades, which I should do, but maybe not today. :) pic.twitter.com/Z2UGEBqMVY— Howard Bowers (@GoAwayGreen) September 6, 2019
