Hollywood Studios will be keeping its name for the foreseeable future, Disney announced today.
The Walt Disney World theme park name has been in question since 2015 when Disney CEO Bob Iger said during a shareholders meeting that “we’re doing some significant work there (Hollywood Studios) right now that I guess will result in a name change.”
In 2017, a survey coming out of Disney World asking people their thoughts on various names. As recently as last month the rumor mill went into full gear that the park’s name was going to be changed to Disney’s Cinemagine Park.
But today, Disney has come out and stated: “In response to questions we have been receiving, we also want to let fans know that the Disney’s Hollywood Studios name will remain the same for the foreseeable future since we are immersing our guests in a place where imagined worlds of Hollywood unfold around them from movies and music to television and theater.”
Hollywood Studios is going through a transformation. In the summer of 2018, Toy Story Land is slated to open. In 2019, Star Wars: A Galaxy’s Edge, another new land, is scheduled to open. And a brand new Mickey Mouse ride is also scheduled to open in the next few years.
