By the time the Disney MGM Studios becomes the Disney Hollywood Studios, it’s name will be the least of what is different. Already announced is that both the Playhouse Disney Live on Stage and Journey into Narnia attraction will go through extensive changes early in 2008. “Playhouse Disney Live on Stage!” will be closed from January 2-27 to add some new show scenes starring characters from more recent Disney channel programming. Journey into Narnia will close from January to May of 2008 to accomodate Toy Story Mania construction and changes to update the tour for the next upcoming Narnia film. These changes come in addition to a new parade (Block Party Bash debuting in March), a new show in the ABC theater, a new High School Musical show, and the all new Toy Story Mania attraction; all of which are currently or will be running by the end of the summer of 2008. While some say January 7th will only bring a new name to WDW’s 3rd theme park, so much more is on the horizon.
