Don't get me wrong... a few shows are nice, but 6 is a little much (7 if you want to count Jack Sparrow).

Of course DHS could use one or two more quality rides (the Monsters Inc roller coaster has always seemed like a no-brainer), although I don't mind that it is mostly shows. What I do have an issue with is how they schedule the shows. It's awful. It's almost never possible to go straight from one show to another. So it makes scheduling your day very difficult and you end up with too much "dead time" waiting for the next show time where it is not long enough to do a ride in between and make it to the next show on time but too much time to just head over the show. [this is usually where someone chimes in saying that this is probably by design to give people that down time to browse shops and spend money]

My other big probelm with DHS is the lousy layout. The other 3 parks have a symmetrical/circular design that's easy to navigate. At DHS, you seem to do a lot of zig-zagging and backtracking.

I was just thinking about that a few weeks ago. We were walking around HS and I was thinking " who's the genius who designed the layout of this place?"

love the aerosmith ride, but HATE the aerosmith theme LOL if that makes sense

To me Id keep Hollywood studios basically the same but add

1. Star Wars Land ( maybe replace the Indiana Jones show )
2. Cars Land ( definitely replace the stunt car show )
3. Pixar Place addition ( Monster Inc Ride )

That is a lot of change of course but I like the rest to be honest and would like to keep it as is.

But this place BADLY needs the 3 things or something like it , for me to ever go back again

A Star Wars land would be so awesome!!! I would love to see this But like PPs have said, you'd have to get rid of Indiana Jones, and probably clear out other areas just to make room for it. Thats the unfortunate part, theres just no room to really expand around Star Tours, unless there's areas behind it I don't know about?

how about that whole area including the pond ( Echo Lake ) and surrounding area ? Fill the Pond in take out/replace Indiana Jones, the restaurant in between it and Star Tours, sounds dangerous, ect ect. A nice and pretty big star wars Land could fit in rather nicely there

Thats a great idea, but what would you do about 50's prime time and hollywood and vine?

In my opinion Two restaurants are easily replaceable or movable. So tear them down or put something else in them like a star wars store or even a star Wars themed Restaurant ( Catina ? ) . I have only ate at them both ONCE so no big loss for me buut if they are super popular amount guest ( I have no idea if they are or not ) then just move them to a new location.

The whole area really would be great for a Star Wars Land IMVHO

and it gives plenty of room and its far enough away for Carsland !

I wouldn't think you would have to touch Hollywood & Vine and 50's. I say start at Indiana Jones, retheme the Backlot Express to say the "Cantina", and add an attraction into the old "Sounds Dangerous" building.

ahh - i knew there was probably some catch.

stark expo would fit PERFECTION with epcot. when the footages of stark expo was shown in iron man 2, i couldn't help but to think of epcot.

i will keep dreaming that a stark expo will come true. thanks for the info!

In all honesty, I really like this whole idea/concept. I mean, IMO, I could too do away with both H&V and 50's Prime Time. As fun and unique as 50's PT is, I would much rather see like a Cantina or Dex's Diner type of place to go along with Star Wars Land. And like you said, they're also easily movable. The only issue would be a lot of people would probably complain about 50's PT being moved/removed.

While thats true, I just wonder if it would feel too compact to be an actual land. i think you'd need more space

Just because i'm not sure it was totally clear. Disney can't use any Character being used at Universal or other characters in the marvel family.

So No Avengers, Fantastic Four, or X-Men.

Correct. From my understanding can't use current characters they use in their park... Pretty cool to see your in Rochester, NY. I'm from there.

I thought they reported on one of the recent Dis podcasts that there are plans (a confirmed date?) to tear down "Lights, Motors, Action!" to make room for Cars Land. Anyone else hear this or am I just making stuff up?

I've heard it but only as speculation. I really have a feeling Carsland will be exclusive to DL.

It was nothing more than speculation and propelling a rumor...
