    I'm gonna say the star wars land is a safe bet, considering the investment

    I would say that Pixar and Star Wars expansions are a safe bet.

    At this point any of the Hollywood Studios Rumors would be welcome in my book, I just want to see something new, and fresh in that park.
    I personally cannot skip any park at all, but If I was in town for just a few days, I could skip HS and only miss a few things at this point, and I don't want to be true of any park.

    Oh yeah. This place needs something new so bad - and not something cheesy.

    I like the rumor about building a DVC resort with a back gate to DHS.

    An expansion at DHS whether its cars or Star Wars or both. Whatever the expansion is its going to happen in the next couple of years. It pretty much has too DHS is just losing its appeal more and more. Also I think the rumor of the DHS name change is a safe bet to to just DIsney studios I think with an expansion that will come as well.

    I would say Star Wars by 2016. I doubt they can have it time for Episode VII but they'd want it done as soon as possible to cash in on the new trilogy. I think Pixar Land would be a good bet too.

    Any type of expansion to HS would be a safe bet, I believe. Star Wars fits perfect there and with the investment in the film franchise and the releases of new movies in the next 5-7 years, I think a Star Wars Land would be very popular in the future plans. I also would expectMarvel to somehow be worked into Disney Springs... whether it's a retail store or a character/themed meal... something. Again with all the releases coming out in the next 5-7 years, this is also bound to be a huge money maker. They can't be included in the parks but they can use it in Disney Springs.

    I don't think you can make a connection between the investment and use in the theme parks. They will get a much faster return on that investment from the movies then they would from a theme park attraction. Look at Marvel. It was and equally large investment, it's been almost 4 years since the aquisition, Marvel movies have been doing great at the box office, but we still haven't seen any firm information about Marvel coming to the parks outside of Florida where it can be used.

    As much as I would like to see a Star Wars land in DHS, my guess is that we will see a version of Carsland there first.

    Actually about 4-5 weeks ago Hong Kong Disneyland announced its plans to add a Marvel Land to its park. The Stark Expo over at Disneyland in California has been one of the most popular things to do their in the last few weeks. Lines are wrapped around the building. It's just a matter of time before they are integrated more into the parks around the world. They just really have to be creative on how they work it into Disney World since it can't be in the parks.

    And then that announcement was quickly denied...

    Not saying it won't happen, it's just that the theme park use of these properties is secondary, the bigger interest on Disney's part is the movies and merchansing.

    I would like to see this, but Disney would be wise to first start Star Wars and/or Pixar expansions. Similar to VGF DVC opening after Fantasyland expansion.

    Frankly, I see the two coming at the same time. It would all depend on where the new Star Wars or Pixar expansions would be located. The building of a new gate requires IMHO an expansion of the park.

    You don't just plop a new gate in between two existing attractions.

    Not a huge fan of Star Wars (RUNS FOR COVER) However, I do love me some Tony Stark. So, Marvel something would be for me. And I am glad to hear it will be at DHS. I would die if I saw Hulk smashing Cinderella Castle. I may throw my flip flop at him.
