|A nice hide-a-way at Disney's Hollywood Studios|
One place that I always looked forward to visiting was a secret little spot that many people didn't even know existed. The masses would walk right past it, some maybe thinking it was just a facade, others maybe thinking it was just another gift shop, but it was a special place for me.
The Writer's Stop at Disney's Hollywood Studios was like an oasis. A place to go in and sit in air

Big changes have come to DHS and with those changes we had to say goodbye to one of my little favorites. But, it is not just the end of an old favorite. Rather, the discovery of what is now a new favorite - The Baseline Tap House.
|I found my new "Oasis" at the Studios|
Inside was a long bar with a bartender type system - where you just walk up and order. The offerings were interesting and the thing that caught my eye was the Charcuterie plate.
There was not a whole lot of seating inside, so we found a table out on the patio and sat down for what turned out to be a very relaxing visit. The Charcuterie was tasty, beautifully presented, and felt a little upscale for such a casual atmosphere. It almost made me forget all about the Writers Stop that once owned this corner. It is not "fancy" at all. A nice theme that is not overdone. It fits into this part of the park very well. Right next door to the popular Sci-Fi Dine-in Restaurant and just steps away from Muppet Vision 3-D and Star Tours.
|A patio that invites you to sit, rest and socialize!|
Yes, the Carrot Cake Cookie is gone from this location, but you can still find it at Trolley Car Treats (aka - Starbucks) on Hollywood Blvd. at the Studios. The treat itself has undergone a change too. Now offering more "Cake" and less "Frosting".
The more diverse offerings are nice though. If you like Beer, Hard Cider, and Wine, they have some interesting offerings for you.

It is a whole different experience from what The Writers Stop was, but it is a good one, especially for adults who need a break from all of the theme park scrambling. A nice change of pace. A welcomed addition to an ever improving Disney's Hollywood Studios! A new favorite for this Disney Grandpa (& Grandma loved it too!)
