    Re: Springfield

    Personally, I do not think that it should be a land, but they need to have a constant theme in the area. At the momnent, it is a hodgepodge of themes that do not work together.
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    While I get why you'd want that.....as it is right now it's just all these small mixes that "I" don't think max that well the Flinstones, then a Pizza place, then a Mexican and chicken place and then the Simpsons ride....why not make this whole are max the other parts and also allow restaurants and other area's to be redone in a way that might help make getting food faster and allow more seating

    That's the whole conceit of a studio park. Backlots are not organized in such a manner and unlike other studio parks that mostly or totally pretend to be a studio, Universal Studios Hollywood is still first and foremost a studio.

    Re: Springfield

    As I understand, the Backlot Tour was just about the only thing they had there aside from the studio production facilities. I had a VHS tape of the original Blues Brothers movie and I remember seeing an ad for the Backlot Tour at the end of the movie after the credits had rolled by. It said "Ask for Babs" at the bottom.

    It will be interesting if they do retheme the buildings, but I doubt they will

    Also, the Anadroid's Dungeon also has a facade on the Kwik-e-mart

    Re: Springfield

    I doubt USH will see the need to expand then, since the expansion is mostly just new facades they already have and a lakeside bar they have no use for. Do they have room for the spinner?

    The new facades are expected to reflect new food and beverage options.

    I'm wondering if they're going to serve a Flaming Moe at Moe's and I'd like to try some of the menu choices at Krusty's at USF as well.

    I've heard the restaurant's menu won't change much. They'll probably just give the previous offerings Simpsons names.

    Re: Springfield

    That's great to hear. I wonder what the Flaming Moe will taste like. I'm shure it'll be great as coming from the same Chef that came up with all the menus at UOR.
