Finding the designated smoking-vaping areas at a theme park is hard enough. Finding them while the park is undergoing construction and vast changes can prove to be even more of a challenge! Hollywood Studios has recently changed where the smoking-vaping areas are, and if you’re not sure where to look, it can get real confusing. In this entry, we’re going to take a look at where the current locations are*, and we hope that Hollywood Studios has plans for more smoking-vaping areas once their Star Wars Lands are done.

Hollywood Studios Main Entrance Smoking-Vaping Area
If you’re coming to Hollywood Studios by bus, this spot is going to be pretty easy for you to find. It’s located right by the lake, across from the Sorcerer’s Mickey topiaries. If you’re walking in off the trams, look to your right, and you’ll find the smoking-vaping area. This area doesn’t offer much in terms of shade or seating, however, most people don’t even know this is a smoking section, so it’s pretty empty most of the time.

Sunset Boulevard Smoking-Vaping Area (aka ‘Tower of Terror Exit’)
As you are exiting the Tower of Terror, the smoking-vaping section is on your left (past the espresso cart, which has an amazing coconut mocha espresso). This area tends to be pretty crowded, so seating is prime. The shade depends on the time of day. If you can get a seat, this is a great place to hang out for a while and rest your feet, otherwise, enjoy sitting on the curbing.

Hollywood Hills Amphitheater Smoking-Vaping Area
Unfortunately, at the time of this publishing, that area was roped off and we were unable to get any pictures of what it looks like. Be sure to check back, as we hope to have a good shot up here soon. It should be noted that this area is generally roped off until a couple of hours before the Fantasmic! show starts.
Pixar Place Smoking-Vaping Area
There is no official word on this, but I believe this is going to be a temporary smoking-vaping area due to the construction all around it. It’s not officially listed as a smoking-vaping are on the maps either. So, if you find yourself in the madness of Pixar Place and needing a nicotine fix, look for the sign, go all the way to the end of the road, and turn left.

Echo Lake Smoking-Vaping Area
We actually had to ask a Cast Member to guide us to this spot because it recently moved from it’s previous place on Echo Lake. The new Echo Lake smoking-vaping area is located toward the front of the lake (just off Hollywood Boulevard). If you look for the boat in the lake, you should find it without any problems. This was the busiest smoking-vaping area, and on the day we were here, it looked like the vapers preferred this spot to the others. The view of the lake is nice, but the seating was very limited. The first picture shows you what it looks like from Hollywood Boulevard. Just past the landscaping, and down the steps is the actual smoking-vaping area.
