The magical Mickey sorcerer’s hat recently vanished from Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World® Resort and soon to join the disappearing act will be the Hollywood Studios name. The name change was accidentally announced at a shareholder’s meeting. This park title transformation comes seven years after the last name change in 2008 when the park name changed from MGM Studios to Hollywood Studios.
The iconic movie-themed resort is undergoing attraction changes, renovations and additions. Classic rides, like The Great Movie Ride® and Toy Story Midway Mania®, are receiving revamps and additional tracks. Other attractions including American Idol Experience® and the Studio Backlot Tour® have recently closed to make room for what fans and bloggers are hoping is a new Star Wars® section of the park.
Rumors about Pixar-inspired rides are arising including a rumor about the addition of a Toy Story ride and the creation of a Cars ride. No matter what Walt Disney World® Orlando chooses, it’s just the start of more magical attractions and areas to come.
