I love Indy and I know the stage is used for other things but I'd much rather see that go and they expand inwards towards the waste of space that is the Sounds Dangerous Soundstage instead of touching Muppet theater!

The Muppets merely need a little updating, it would be silly to demolish in the midst of a sequel and resurgence in the brand without even attempting an update first. Jim Hensen and Muppet lovers deserve it.

Distinctly unpatriotic, indeed!

Also Pizza Planet is the woooorst. If they are updating they seriously need to open some restaurants that are actually worth the money/ dining credits in DHS.

Instead of spending the money on gimmicks they should invest on developping a proper menu with some variety. Although a cold beer while the Cantina band play in the background does sound pretty awesome. :P

I had even blocked Pizza Planet out from my memory when I was talking about not needing another counter service between the backlot express and studio catering

DHS is definitely the worst park for eating. We usually do the RNR, Tower of Terror and head out.

DHS is our favorite park. It's not as crowded and Star Tours is pretty much a walk on at all times. For a boy who loves Star Wars it's a win-win for him. Star Wars land would be awesome but the thought of our fave park becoming crowded makes us cringe. Selfish I know. But don't care. 😃

But last time we were there was just as the film was out and even then the shop was more than half taken over by Phineas and blooming Ferb! so I fully expect to see the Muppets go!

I completely agree! The Muppets are a staple in our house!

Agreed! Sounds Dangerous is a huge waste!

I also agree with everyone on the food at HS. Pizza Planet is bleh and could be great. WDW's pizza has never been a favorite of ours, with the exception of Via napoli. The park really does need some tweaking. We are Star Wars fans also but if I to choose I'd pick Cars over it. We usually just go a half day for Fantasmic, Disney Junior, Star Wars & RNR and head out.

As I understand it, it has to do with the water. The mineral content in the local water affects the dough significantly.

Via Napoli apparently imports the water from New York, which approximates the water in Italy, from what they said when it opened.

Ahh yes. I have heard this and I know Disney's water is really gross! That plus nescafe equals

Just remember don't believe any rumors about a new project until concrete is being poured.

Even then, I'd keep it in reserve until it looks enough like what they've announced that is seems that its too late for them to change their minds and switch from "Star Wars Land" to "Howard The Duck World"...

Oh sure, you're laughing now.

Howard The Duck is a Marvel Comics character, turned into a box office disaster by - ta da - Lucasfilm. So Disney doubly has rights.

Maybe they could have a Howard the Duck trash can or butt disposal container in a smoking area
