    I know we’re all very anxious as to what’s going to be a part of this new “land”, but I welcome new developments at the Studios! A great park that needs some updates and love.

  2. Enormous waste of valuable space. I had heard rumors that cars land was going to replace back lot and stunt show. Likewise star wars land is going where indy was.and surrounding areas. These rides are dated and are not classics that deserve to be preserved. Hollywood needs a major overhaul and I for one am glad they are doing it.

    Expand PixarLand with some thing from Incredibles and perhaps Ratatouille. Star Wars land will stay on other side of the park. Expand Muppets presence and replace Beauty and the BEAST with a Tangled show…that would give you 4 good lands in DHS and make it worth it.

    I’m so excited for something new at HS the Backlot Tour did get kinda meh after they removed some of the props. Not too excited for Star Wars expansion but Pixar exoansion will probably be a great addition to the park! I’ll miss The Beauty and the Beast show and would love to see it added to MK

    Hate to see it go, it will be one of those rides (Attractions) my kids will remember when they get older. I have dibs on the tractor from Tim Allen’s Home Improvement Show.

    Back in ’93 my friend and I were picked to be in the navy battle scene demonstration. The Backlot Tour will always be special to me. I’ve been on it many times since. Can’t say I’ll be sorry to see it go, though. Catastrophe Canyon was getting a bit stale.
