Anyone who has been paying any attention knows that Hollywood Studios has been going through some major changes. Disney’s third gate has been suffering from an identity crisis for many years now. It first opened as a working production studio and tourist attraction but after the sound stages began to sit empty it eventually migrated to a concept that honored the world of film from all eras.
With the loss of many major attractions inside the park including The Great Movie Ride, Studios Backlot Tour, Magic of Disney Animation and the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show many guests complained of the lack of clear focus throughout the park.
Next year ushers in the beginning of a new era for the struggling park. Toy Story Land will open next summer in 2018 with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge following close on its heels in 2019. With these changes it only makes sense that Disney would be looking for a new retheming of the park and with it, a new name.
Brayden from the YouTube channel called Mickey Views has discovered a focus group survey that supports the rumor of a name change coming to Hollywood Studios! Bryaden has also been so kind as to provide us with some amazing high res photos of the focus group survey!
It appears a new survey is being sent out by Disney Parks Survey that gives a clue as to the new direction the park is going to head in. From the description it looks like there is a turn from simply honoring the world of film to actually jumping inside the storylines and participating in the movies that we know and love.
The survey then goes on to ask the guest to rank the top 5 of the suggested new names for the park. Choices include:
- Disney Kaleidoscope Park
- Disney Storyverse Park
- Disney Hyperia Park
- Disney Beyond Park
- Disney Cinemagic Park
- Disney Legends Park
- Disney XL Park
- Disney Cinemagine Park
These new names would take the identity of the park away from the Golden Age of Hollywood to a theme focused more on the story lines of the movies themselves.
It even appears the names Disney Storyverse Park and Disney Beyond Park may be gaining traction.
What do you think of these choices? Let us know what your pick would be if you received the survey!
