Now THIS would make DHS a full day park, dude!!

When we went in 2011 Lights Motors Action was only running 1 a day in the middle of summer and it wasn't even crowded. A CM told me that the show was to expensive to run.

Another point WDW needs to step up it game if it is going to compete with Universal, Sea World and even legoland. My son has been talking about some new transformer ride at Universal.

If rumour is true Carsland would be cool and it would fit in with pixar place.

I'd like both Cars Land and Star Wars Land. However, since there is a Cars Land, they should start with Star Wars. Star Wars is a phenominal property that continues to live in every way conceivable. It has certainly proven a part of our culture. Brilliant idea for Disney to buy, and when they build Star Wars land, it will make Harry Potter look insignificant as far as attendance and popularity!

Avatar land is also brilliant! It is one of the most popular movies ever and more are coming. It is so beautifully imaginative. AND - this is the real kicker - unlike some other movie properties, years from now if people forget the movie Avatar, they will still find the amazing imaginative creatures fun and entertaining. As long as the land is designed right and I think it will be with Cameron and Disney working together.

The idea of turning HS into a Disney movie property park is also a good idea they can work towards over time.

It may mean nothing, but the last date with scheduled performances is Saturday September 28. You can select dates up to December 10.

When we went last year, the stadium was filled nearly to capacity. I don't recall how many shows a day they were running.

We've only seen it twice, both times were the middle of the summer and both times it was a little over half full.

I enjoyed it the first time, but not as much the second, I chalk it up as a one time thing. I can see why people like it, but I wouldn't mind it being replaced with something else.

Wouldn't it be funny if the CM's source was this forum? LOL other than that, the murmurings that have been mentioned only mention Star Wars land and not Cars land. Would be smart not to duplicate so it would entice people to still visit both coasts for something different.

DISCLAIMER: nothing mentioned in this post you just read has been confirmed via a press release.

Sweet...dueling CM rumors.

P.S. I'm not sure you meant heresy - probably hearsay. Then again, contradicting a "confirmed" post around here is sometimes called heresy. Beware villagers with pitchforks...

It was meant to look like a true studio backlot of several large cities. Look in one direction, and it could be a street in New York City. Look in another, and it is San Francisco.

It was originally just New York City, and part of the backlot tour.

I vaguely recall hearing that some film scenes were actually filmed there early on, but I can't remember what and can't find a reference...

Interesting...still not confirmed though, and the DIS itself fell into the trap of the "imminent" CarsLand announcement a while back...but it's lending weight to the rumors one or both will eventually come.
