    disneyma Can't wait to get back to DVC and Disney....

    Heard from a fellow CM that all cast members related to this attraction have been pink slipped. They will be turning this attractions into Star Wars Land

    Saw this in Paris and really liked it, was looking forward to seeing it again. Will keep hoping until I see something official.

    The term pink slip here makes this sound shady. Technicians/Costuming/Operational CMs would be reabsorbed into Disney and would not lose their jobs. Many of the stunt performers are trained elsewhere on property and would also maintain their employment. The only people who would be potentially fired are Performers who are not trained anywhere else on property, Disney would buy them out of their contracts.

    This is also not standard Disney practice, they typically have a leader announcement first for those affected by a closing and then would announce it to the hourly cast.

    Just announcement seems inconsistent with Disney's procedures.

    Whatever Disney decides to do with their Star Wars IP at WDW, I sure hope it's very large in scale - if not a 5th gate, than at least a large land. I just don't see how the closing of one attraction would make room for this.

    This has been rumored for awhile now, although the rumor is that Carsland will be taking that spot:confused3

    Well, if it is true, I say bummer. This isn't really an attraction I visit over and over again, but it's an attraction worthy of visiting. I'm not a big Star Wars fan, I prefer the smell of burning rubber, lol.
     
  9. DHS needs major attention asap so this is great news if true. Its a very boring place with only a few attractions there worth the time.

    This - enjoyed LMA and have ZERO interest in anything Star Wars. Just gives me another excuse to possibly skip this park completely next trip.

    Be ready for lockedoutlogic to call you out and tell you that you don't know what you are taking about. I do believe that some changes might be coming to LMA or the backlot tour in the form of expanded Star Wars land or a variation of Cars land but unless you are relatives of Iger or Staggs some on here will just tell you that you are wrong while not contributing anything useful themselves.

    I know I would love Star Wars land, my kids would love Star Wars land. If other people will "skip the park" then that just makes room for the more people who would want to see more Star Wars.


    Disney doesn't do many things wrong. If somebody doesn't want to see a Star Wars land or an Avatar land thent hey should move on and allow other people to enjoy. I'm not a huge Avatar fan but I'm sure it will be a lot of fun and might even change my outlook on the film after see what Disney can do with it.

    Bottom line is regardless of what they do Disney will put the most effort into it and make it enjoyable for everybody in my home.

    I would rather have Star Wars Land than CarsLand. Keep CarsLand in Disneyland! :)

    I wonder how fast it would happen if it did. We've never seen LMA, so should we make it a must do in november?

    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.

    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!
