CONFIRMED: Name Change Coming for Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

While no name has been revealed, Disney CEO Bob Iger accidentally confirmed a name change for Disney’s Hollywood Studios during the Q & A portion of today’s Disney Shareholder Meeting.

An announcement of the new name will be made at some point in the future, but Disney was clearly not ready to announce the change today.

With the removal of the Studio Backlot Tour, the Sorcerer’s Hat, the American Idol Experience, and the Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, along with the on-going expansion of Toy Story Mania, and the upcoming overlay of the Great Movie Ride, among all of the rumored changes to be made to the park, the announcement should not be a surprise, but the Disney’s Hollywood Studios name was just changed from the Disney-MGM Studios in 2008.

Stay tuned as more information becomes available on this breaking story.

Yeah I like that disney movie studio but I feel like they are getting away from the hollywood movie making aspect so probably going to be frozen

A bus driver told me it was gonna be called the Pixar/Lucasfilm Studios Adventure Park. Sounds legit.

Would it be wise to trust an article with a vast amount of grammar and spelling errors?

Rumor? The information came from Iger during an investor call.

I’ll believe it when I see it. It costs millions of dollars to change and re-brand last time. I doubt they are eager to do it again. Until then, just another Internet rumor.

Bob Iger announced yesterday during the shareholder meeting that a name change is coming to the Hollywood Studios park. So It’s safe to say this is no longer a rumor.

It’s been rumored for months because they are dropping the idea that the park is a working backlot.

What was wrong with MGM Studios!

They were no longer partnering with MGM for the park, so it made sense to remove the company from the name.

My vote is for Disney’s Pixar-Star Wars land! I would have gone with Pixar-Marvel-Star Wars land but I believe Disney signed an agreement to not build any Marvel attractions east of the Mississippi…

Or how about Star Wars-Arrendelle-Pixar land. That has a nice ring to it no? They could call it SAP for short.

Maybe they’d call it SAP, but the rest of us would call it SWAMP. hahaha

It was in response to a question from someone at the shareholder meeting. While no name has been announced, I think it’s safe to assume that it will still have something to do with Hollywood. Hollywood Adventure is my best guess since they are making more attractions where you become part of the story, instead of showing you how the story was made at a studio. You can easily find the whole quote from Bob Iger online. He also mentioned that big changes are coming, which we all kinda knew about anyway.
