Please see my topic from today with even more to be potentially getting on that list.
As I'm not yet allowed to post links, please search in the same folder for:
" Orlando: Why replace existing attractions vs. using new land ? "

Plus also look at (also in same folder)
" Hollywood Studios Expansion "

There has been no official announcement about this, but there have been a lot of rumors floating around that they are looking to get rid of LMA because it is to expensive to operate which really isn't surprising.

Kind of makes since unless they can make it more cost effective some how. I wonder if that goes for Disneyland Paris too?

I personally hope it is being replaced, I loved it the first time I saw it in DLP and liked it the second time I saw it in WDW. Then when I saw it again, for the third time, at DLP I was bored of it.

I still like it, but it may be kind o refurbished, i.e. other theme and/or jokes. The elements are still great. But still having exact same jokes ... even an attraction likes test track gets a make-over after some time ;-)

I view LMA as a big waste of space. I would like to see something (or things) in that space

I've also heard they may scrap part or all of the backlot tour as part of this expansion as well. It does seem kind of silly to have something called Pixar place only to have Toy Story represented in any real way. Everyone loves Pixar, very few enjoy LMA (they see it once and rarely return) so to me it only makes sense. Of course I also wouldn't mind seeing them do away with Indiana Jones to expand star wars into more than one ride as well to compete with Harry Potter land. Are you reading this Disney, I'm giving you gold here!!!

It's had it's time. I have seen it 3 times and that was enough for me. Waiting in that hot queue for an hour is not worth it.

I dont think we have gone to see this show in maybe 2 years. Its a great show. I would rather have the old time tv houses back in that spot especially at xmas time when they were decorated.

I miss those houses. Does anyone have pics of them ?

Here's the thing. . .Disney is big on making announcements well in advance. If we haven't heard anything official yet, then I think it is unlikely that early 2013 is the planned date.

Do I foresee an expansion of Pixar Place at DHS? Yes, but I would imagine that they would make it public well prior to it actually happening.

Not necessarily....

lately they've been very slow at making announcements regarding show closings or other major changes. Take for example the Test Track Refurb, Big Thunder Refurb, and the rumored FoTLK closing/hiatus to make way for the Pandora construction.

The refurbs weren't officially announced until just before the attractions went down (although rumors were swirling for awhile of it's coming), and the FoTLK closing is swirling pretty hard in the Disney rumor mill for the beginning of the year, but nothing official yet from Disney.
