    Great update!

    The food looks great there!

    I also don’t think that adding Cars land is a good idea. I agree with Dusty that an original idea would be much better. Star Wars is just too good a choice given its popularity with the Star Wars weekends each year. It would be quite a draw and really be a Potter buster. Frankly the reason those few good rides have such a wait is that there are so few of them at DHS. There really needs to be about four more top attractions added to really fill out a day there.

    Shelve Cars Land Florida and put Wreck-It Ralph Land instead. Please

    While I hope you are right about the hat, I do NOT want to see RSR at DHS or a Carsland 0.5. I just don’t get why they wouldn’t do the Star Wars land in the Backlot/LMA area. It’s the only thing that’s going to be able to compete with Potter.

    As for there being a better attraction than ToT, I hope it will happen someday but it certainly hasn’t happened yet. It hasn’t happened since.

    A Star Wars land would be a game changer not only for DHS, but for all of Walt Disney World. It will happen when Disney’s ready, but we all know it’s inevitable.

    If they want to clone something clone the Indiana jones rollercoaster from Paris

    If DHS does get a makeover in the form of a new “land”, Disney should think ahead for a change and put in something Star Wars- and/or Marvel-related. The biggest movie franchise of all-time plus the movie franchise currently raking in billions at the box office? It should be a no-brainer for Disney to start putting a healthy footprint in DHS around those two franchises. But we are talking about the current TWDC here, where profit is the only goal and creativity is treated like a cheap toilet paper dispenser – “use” it, throw it away, refill it, repeat (See – Departures From WDI: Baxter, Tony). Now, if the suits could pull their heads out of the accountant’s nether-regions and actually set WDI free to CREATE an entire land, from the ground up, based on those two franchises… And with a (very) healthy budget? Oh my… I have little doubt it would be 50 levels of awesome and would make DHS a very, very busy place for years to come.

    As for an attraction better than ToT? While it’s pretty much inevitable, unfortunately I don’t think it’s likely anytime this decade.

    The number of people impressed by cloning cars land at Hollywood studios: 100,000.

    The number of people impressed by an equally as detailed Star Wars land: over 1 billion.

    Give or take a few hundred. Disney should look at that number before deciding what to build at Hollywood studios.

    It is also funny that the picture of the wait time sign forthe backlot tour says 15 minutes and you comment on that. But a few pictures later the wait times sign for the park has the backlot tour queue at 30 mins… Guess it is not always only 15 minutes.
