I understand what you are saying, but I still enjoy the Golden Age of Hollywood feel, and nearly everything has a Hollywood connection or movie tie in.

I hope dinosaur Gertie stays though, the connection to the early animation that Walt loved is smart and significant.

I,'m not sure if anyone ever saw the Star Trek Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton but it was great. They had a live action sequence where you actually walked through the Enterprise and stood on an exact replica of the Enterprise bridge. It was really cool, I hope they do something like that. Maybe a walkthrough of the Death Star or something. They also had a well themed restaurant named Quarks. I can see Disney doing something like that on a much bigger scale.
I actually made a detour to LV on my way back from Lake Tahoe just to see it. We ate at Quarks and there were some Klingons that came in. My some had the "flaming ribs of Tarr" and they were served on fire. The Star Trek Experience is something the kids (now in their 20s) still talk about.

I feel like DHS is a mess and needs serious help. While I also like the connection to Hollywood, I don't feel that at Lights Motors Action or with the giant hat. That still bugs me, so I'd be thrilled if that went away. I also think that at least having a big Star Wars (or Pixar/Cars) land would at least create something exciting for DHS beyond me just riding the big headliners repeatedly.

That said, I do really like The Great Movie Ride and would be sad to see it go. It hearkens back to what DHS was at the start, and I don't like seeing attractions with lots of animatronics go away. Still, I'm curious to see how it evolves!

In my opinion, an entire Star Wars park wouldn't be overkill. Of course I wouldn't want them to destroy DHS for it, but DHS does need some serious work.

As someone who went to DHS in 1990 and then again in 2007, the difference is night and day. just about everything outside of Star Tours and Indy is completely different from what it originally was. And that is not a good thing. Best way to put it, DHS has been the red-headed stepchild of the four parks. Something has to give. Wasn't there talk a few years back of rebranding as Disney Pixar? Maybe now they could rebrand as Pixar/LFL lol

As to the cantina: I'd like to see a Battle of the Bands, the Modal Nodes versus Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band
