Well someone had an extensive rumor about this a little while back, but I thought it fizzled out.

Interesting. They need to do a lot with HS. I know they have "Sunset Boulevard" with ToT and RnRC. Pixar Place has TSM and ... Streets of America has Muppets lol. I could see them maybe overhauling the area by Indiana Jones one day to add a Star Wars show or another Star Wars themed ride. HS has to have something added soon though.

Yea I had read that a while back, but saw this rumor on another site. And kinda out two and two together with the whole earful tower being part of promotions for hs again, the rumor I saw the guy said he will be a part of the "dismantling of the big hat" so it all kind of coincided.

Ive heard the rumor about the "worlds" a lot, written on many different Disney boards and blogs. There is either truth to it, or the same person is making it up all over the web.

I don't think it is as absurd as some people think it is. Universal has all the lands and with Harry Potter's expansion, I wouldnt doubt that Disney tries to duplicate their compitition, but then make it 100 times better.

One interesting Tidbit that makes me even write this post is because of a survey Disney emailed my wife and I this week. We just booked our trip for March and they sent me a survey to rate the parks in order of most liked to least liked. Thinking I may get a pin code sent back for participating, I put down my prefrence of most like in order; MK, Epcott, AK and least is Hollywood Studios. Once I clicked that, Disney had 2 follow up pages on Hollywood studios, asking what I would want changed, how Disney could make it better and then lastly, how I think it compares to other theme parks in Orlando (Most Likely referring to Universal).

My wife got the same survey and she put down MK, Hollywood, Epcott and AK. After she clicked continue, it said thanks for participating and had no follow-up questions, like It had for me, listing Hollywood as my least favorite.

I think something is brewing. It makes sense that being Disney has AK, Epcot and MK, they can try something different with their 4th park. Especially being that the park is named hollywood studios, it make sense that the park can transform into hollywood sets of movies and put them into entire lands.

I think it is safe to say we could definetly be seeing Star Wars and Cars Land. Possibly a Pixar Land and whatever else the Imagineers can think of.

Perhaps they should build Pixar Place and Cars Land and Star Wars Land and reaquire Marvel and build Marvel Universe.... which pretty much redoes the whole park and they can re-name it Licencing Lagoon

i would be down with some retheming, but what they got now works. kinda.

first they need to retheme the rocking roller coaster. its a nice ride, but theme doesnt fit at all. retheme to a tron ride. the room where you see aerosmith in the recoding studio, thats where the computer sucks you in.

second, i hope that with the purchase of lucasfilm they will be able to expand on star wars to give us a star wars land.

and i know they dont have alot of land to work with. but if they got rid of the backlot tour and the car show (name escapes me) thats plenty of land to add a new small "land"

A Star Wars land would be a winner in my book.

I recently ran the half marathon, and there seemed to be more land around Disney than I previously thought. I would love to see if there is land bordering Hollywood Studios in which they could expand.

At a bare minimum, I think that Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom both need at least 2 more high profile rides. I don't mind HS as much since I kind of consider it part of Epcot (We walk between the two.), but sometimes we don't go to Animal Kingdom since only a few of the rides appeal to the family.

I just really feel Indiana Jones has run its course. Time for something a little more relevant. With Disney purchasing LucasFilm and making more movies, I think it's inevitable.

It would be nice for it to have some more cohesive lands for sure and not just a mishmash all over the park!

Pixar Place

There is thought that Pixar Place may be exspanded. There is rumor of Cars Land (or at least the Racers & Tractors). Plus there was talk a couple of years ago about a Monster's INC rollercoster. They do have some room to work with just not as much as AK.

I agree, I would like to see them put an Indiana Jones themed ride in this spot. And since they purchased LucasFilm, this would def. work now.

I love the Indian Jones ride in Tokyo, my favorite ride in the park infact and Id love to see it in Florida. THe stunt show isnt bad, its my favorite show in the park but the park is too show heavy and if it meant getting a star Wars Land or an Indiana Jones ride then Id be okay with it going

I would be as though if it was closed and we had NOTHING of Indian in Florida, but I guess at the same time that just makes going to Tokyo a plus ( I live in Japan for part of the year and part of the year in Florida )

I have never been to the California resort despite going to California many many times but I plan on going once and only once in a few years.

So a Cars Land in Florida would be very welcomed for my family and I

I disagree a little. Maybe a retheme maybe a little better, but TRON ride wouldn't work for that area. At least RnR is a limo going thru the streets to Hollywood/Cali. Don't get me wrong, a tron type ride would be cool at WDW somewhere but off of Sunset Blvd by the ToT, I think not.

I agree to a Star Wars area. And like others, I agree to expansion of Pixar Place. They could do alot with Monsters, Inc, Cars, etc.
