I'm starting to worry about the future of Muppets 3D and everything else in that area. If they're going for a big project and it is Star wars land then that little area is surely in the way to link Star tours up with the new stuff.

I know my husband and son will be the first ones to visit anything Star Wars related...It is very popular and I can only imagine Disney will make it something magical..

unless its the new york streets that are under threat - suppose it could be as it doesnt exactly help keep people in the park or make any money other than for the Osborne Family Spectacle does it?

Star Wars will bring in mobs like nothing seen in a while. At least like nothing at WDW.

I think that this would be a great decision. Just please keep the Muppets!

I hate coming onto this section of the forum and seeing "official" and "confirmed" when it's really not

Ok I'm going to try and not be 'that guy'. It's totally possible that LMA is closing but I find it incredibly hard to believe its for Star Wars. Now if they are getting rid of Streets of America, then I would say ok maybe they are going to take out Muppets and make a huge Star Wars area. I just figured if they were to expand for Star Wars it would go back by the parade building. Since they shut down both parades, I figured that would be the way they would go. Will be interesting to see what happens.

I hope this is true because DHS needs to do something and closing the back lot would probably be number one Star Wars or cars land is most likely to happen and its been an on going rumor for several months now. DHS is dead it needs to brought back to life I think Star Wars or cars would do just that. Something needs to be done at DHS everyone can agree on that for sure.

If it were to happen, it can go as quick as 2 weeks (as was the case with the Count Down to Fun Parade & Disney Channel Rocks). First there was a leadership announcement... then a couple hours later there was a hourly cast announcement... then FB blew up. None of those announcements have occurred in regards to LMA.

I don't have an issue if the OP translated disney speak for generic speak "pink slip". CMs working the attraction being told is almost official notice the attraction is closing but not what will replace it.
Your post suggests no such notice was given.
I dont understand why so many people have an issue with lights.... It fits well with a studio theme. It doesn't have much repeat value to me.

LMA is one of those attractions that gets blasted on theme park boards but actually does well on surveys for the average park guest

This might give me the impetus to check it out if it hasn't been closed by October. I don't know if I've ever seen it.

I'm excited for any new content, but I'm not enthusiastic about losing Muppets or for anything to interfere with Osborne lights.

Although this still sounds like a rumor, it wouldn't bother me. I enjoyed the stunt show, but it isn't something we frequently visit. Plus, it's a huge amount of real estate that could house multiple attractions or one really big one. I'd much rather see a ride than a show that I'll only do periodically. I'd prefer Star Wars to Cars Land because it's already in CA, but either way I'd be happy.

While I think that DHS does need more rides (and I love Star Wars) I would be disappointed to see LMA leave. It's one of the few attractions at DHS that sticks to the original premise of the park.

I would be okay with a Star Wars Land but I think they should leave Cars Land at Disneyland. With the new Disney Pixar Planes movie releasing soon maybe that makes more sense to have an area in WDW.
