I was thinking the same thing. Don't get me wrong I do love Tangled, the Movie, but I'm not sure I would like it in a Broadway Musical format. I LOVE B&B and would be heartbroken if it went away for good. That was my only problem with any of this rumored project, everything else sounds awesome. We really enjoy DHS now, and if they do go ahead and make these changes....well, I think we will really enjoy DHS .

Sounds like good news to me. There needs to be more added for me to want to spend more time there.

I love the idea of getting Tangled in the parks- especially since Beauty and the Beast will soon have it's own themed area in MK.

Of course, I'd prefer a dark ride for it bc I just think that lantern scene would be amazing....but a show will do just fine for me!

I have mixed feelings after reading about the changes/expansion at HS. I am pumped about the hat maybe going bye bye. It was neat at first, but then I was over it. I remember walking in the park and having the giant Chinese Theater as a center piece. It was neat.

Great movie ride restaurant sounds interesting. Would it be character dining like the castle? hmm who would they have. Would be neat if it was old school HollyWood style. Great movie ride also could use a little update. I still go on it every trip and find the hidden mickeys!

I havent watched the Beauty & Beast show in a few years, but it was great. Loved to sing all the songs during it, not to sure about Tangled.... was not too thrilled about movie.

I might be the only one who likes the back lot tour and stunt motor action show. I loved the back lot tour when they had the residential street, but thats a whole other.... Anywhoo I really like the cars stunt show. I am surprised they have cut the show times down. To me its crazy they spend all this time and money on that venue and will rip it all down to build again. Dont get me wrong im sure the whole cars land will/would be cool as i have seen a lot of it online, but im not good with change. lol.

I do like the idea of the trolley. I love how you get transported back to the old HollyWood days when you walk down those streets. I too miss the actors they had all over the streets, i have only seen a few in my past trips. They made ya laugh!!
I also love the talks about more muppets. I love the 3D show!! It could use a little pick me up. It would be a little sad to see pizza planet go tho for a new restaurant.


Ahhhhh My thoughts are all over the place!!! Just needed to vent a little!!

Oh my, I love the music in Tangled!!! It is so beautiful.

It's true that nothing Disney (or anyone else) does will ever please everyone! But I think we all tend to look at "Dis opinions" as almost a single person--I'm guilty of this, too. So, we look at a discussion and say, "How can you all be whining about Disney doing XYZ when you were just moaning and groaning about them *not* doing XYZ?" When, in reality, we could probably look back at individual posts and see these are not actually the same people expressing different opinions.

Of course, I also agree with you that all of this sounds highly improbable and, if it ever does happen, won't be seen for many, many years.

This almost sounds too good to be true. I would love dhs to get some fresh attractions. IMO sw is a huge hit and I would love to see another ride and a restaurant. The monsters inc coaster sounds too good to be true but I think it's a great idea. I wouldn't mind seeing cars land in dhs no matter if it's the same as dlr. cars is just too huge of a money maker for Disney not to use.

If all these changes are made it might actually be worth spending a day in that park. It's my DH's fav and he wants to spend as much as a day and a half there. I just don't get it, but in exchange I get my MK days.

Just a disclaimer to start, everything has been taken with a grain of salt.

I would personally love to see pretty much all of these changes made.

HS is a great park (though I constantly have to stop myself in the middle of calling it MGM Studios) but it needs a major face lift. Everyone is right in their comments that it lacks a consistent and cohesive theming throughout the park, but I think that even if they split the park up into Cars Land and Star Wars land and the like that they could easily manage a theme of finding yourself in your favorite movies, akin to how you felt the first time you rode TGMR.

As far as the Beauty and the Beast stage show goes, I would not be disappointed if it left. When I was a kid and my family visited the park (and I grew up in south FL so I went a LOT) that show was a must do for me EVERY time, along with The Little Mermaid. Having seen the show more recently, it has lost some of its luster. I haven't actually seen the b'way version, but I would imagine that many people would enjoy seeing a touring company of that just as much, if not more than the one act which you find at the park. And really, it's been playing for nigh on 20 years at this point, so a change would be nice. I also LOVE the music in Tangled. I find it very dynamic and if the stage show does go up I would totally audition!

I would also be happy for the sorcerer's hat to go away. I miss when the symbol for the park was the ear-full tower! ^_^

On the Cars Land debate, I think it would be a fun addition. Yes an all-Pixar-movie themed land would be great too, but I don't agree with the point that it would be better than Cars Land purely since it isn't anywhere else, because I'm pretty sure there is a already a section of DIsneyland/DCA themed around the Pixar movies (other than Cars). I don't know how extensive it is, having never visited parks before, but I've seen a fair amount online about it. I'd also love the previously mentioned Monster's Inc coaster.

We do need to see more Muppet areas too! The park was originally supposed to have more, but there were issues between Jim Henson's family and the Disney company that kept the plans from going forward. Also, Sam the Eagle in 2016! Amirite? ; )

My last point would be that a Star Wars themed land could be freaking AWESOME! I know the George Lucas/Star Wars partnership can be a sore spot for people, but it's such an iconic part of our culture and how adorable would it be to see young kids and all grown up kids alike light up at the prospect of having lunch at the Mos Eisley Cantina?! I for one would probably start squeaking with joy even upon entering! Of course with the clientele they see, at least I wouldn't be getting the strangest looks in the place. : D

Anyway, hopefully that wasn't too tl;dr for everyone. Just had to jump in with my two cents.

Consider the rumor mill open for business!
Wow! This is great info. Thanks for sharing.

The only problems I have with this rumor is them changing Beauty and the Beast to Tangled. I would love a Tangled show but maybe put it into MK or somewhere else in HS. And I hope they keep the hat. I really like the hat. If they added the Carthway Circle w/ the hat that would be fine.

I LOVE the idea of the Monsters Inc. ride! That would be great!!!

Lets see if any of this rumor comes true....???

I'd be much more interested in an entire Pixar land than a clone of Cars land. Was hoping for something different. If they are going to retheme the current Pizza Planet, they could put in a new restaurant or two based on the Pixar movies and include a Pixar Character meal, put in the Monster's Inc coaster, move the laugh floor over to DHS, put in an UP or Incredibles motion ride, retheme the HISTK play area to Bug's Life, and still add the racers or something from Carsland, without the whole land.

Oh well, I guess they know what they are doing. I'm sure people will like ANYTHING new at DHS.
I like your idea! and I agree they should do more PIXAR attractions...

I'm thinking though that with so much of the FLE being focused on Belle, maybe they are looking to balance things out a bit? There's a lot of Beauty and the Beast at MK...

True, but TLM also has a show in DHS which I'd rather see go then BATB.
