Survey Reveals Possible New Park Theme and Name for Disney’s Hollywood Studios

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

With all of the demolition, removal, and construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, it is no secret that most of the park that once existed is now history, which has lead many a guest to ask what the new theme of the park will be and why Disney hasn’t just renamed it already. Well, a recent focus group survey sheds some light on the possible new theme and a host of possible new names for the transitioning theme park.

As described above (including Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land), the park would now revolve around you being the star and jumping into your favorite movies, television shows, cartoons, and more, taking an active role in the story in every experience.

The survey goes on to ask the guest to pick from a list of possible new names for the park…

For what it is worth, we were unable to verify the source of the focus group, but it looks pretty official. We’ll just have to wait and see if any of this comes to fruition now…

What do you think of this possible theme and the new names listed above? Also, don’t forget to check out our latest aerial tour of the construction at the park!

Why call it Disney XL Park because it’s the second smallest park at WDW

Until the expansion opens its the smallest. ????

I always thought DHS was the smallest but Google says MK is 107 acres and DHS is 135. I wonder if the 135 was designed when they still had LMA and BLT and included those areas. ????

I thought it was said during D23 2016 that the new name was already decided and would be announced at another time? I realise plans can change, but surely it was better than those choices!

Disney asking guests to help name a park? I just don’t see this happening myself – especially since some of the names given to me just don’t say “Disney thought of this name” (Disney XL anyone??).

Well, they did name a TV network “Disney XD”

Most of these names are just terrible. I’d rather them keep the current name if that’s the best they can come up with.

I think that name has more to do with the XD looking like an emoticon (remember those?) than being an acronym.

MGM stood for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which was an old Hollywood studio, much like RKO. Remember the film intro with the lion? That was MGM.

An ointment, unguent or salve.

A better name would be “Stuff Not Found at Other Parks”, or “Overflow Land To Keep the Crowds Down”

I agree. To me the park has never been the same since they removed the ginormous hat.

I quite like Cinemagic, but I really don’t like any of the others, however I’m not sure that’s any better than the obvious Disney’s Hollywood Adventure. I suppose we’d get used to whatever it is.

Not great choices.

I personally don’t feel that the name needs to change, because Toy Story and Stars Wars are movies, and movies are made in STUDIOS! I agree with the previous comments. All of the proposed new names are terrible. They already renamed this park once. To do it again damages the validity of the park. If a new name has to be assigned to the property, based on the description in the survey, where you are immersing your self in lands of another galaxy, toys, and your favorite characters, the best name I could think of, and hopefully the final name… Read more »

How about “None of The Above Except Maybe the Current Name?” Park?

Some of these names sound like something that Disney would build on OBT.

It should be named something like Disney’s Lands of Adventure, or the Wonderous World of Walt Disney.

Doesnt that name kinda step on the toes of another theme park down the road? Its only missing two letters lol.

Cinemagic is my favorite of those listed based on the Cinemagique name from Paris. However as bland as it sounds, something like Disney(‘s) Hollywood Adventure would probably work best. You are in the dream world of Hollywood where your favorite movies come alive. It also connect with Disney California Adventure and with some of the original zoning/theme of the existing park. Also it is less extreme and easier to remember that it is the same park.

I honestly cannot believe that anyone that read that survey actually believes that it is for real. Honestly, even the most simple person would recognize that most of those names are completely nonsensical.Then again, considering the source of venom that I am subjected to in the comments section of this site, I should not have been surprised.

Seems unlikely to be a real survey. Where are these images from? Who provided them? The author provides no information for the reader to evaluate the credibility of this. That’s usually a strong indication that it’s not legit.
