Gertie’s Ice Cream of Extinction Finally opens but not for long…

Gertie Photo

Every single day, on the shore of Echo Lake inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can see Gertie in all her 1930’s “California Crazy” architectural goodness. She loves to pose for pictures and is very photogenic.

Unfortunately, she is only open seasonally for the business of selling ice cream and treats. Catching her on one of these days can be tricky. Today, however, we got lucky and stumbled on some May 2013 dates and hours of operation for Dinosaur Gertie’s Ice Cream of Extinction!

The following information is subject to change but comes from an extremely reliable “anonymouse” source:

  • Dates of operation are May 11th, 17th, through the 20th, the 22nd , and 24th through the 31st, 2013.
  • Operating hours on all dates  will be Noon-6PM.

    We caught it open in October 2010. That’s where we (DH & I, and technically DS2 since I was 8w preggo with him) had our first Mickey Bar!
