    Question What can be done to Hollywood Studios?

    Ever since Disney's Hollywood Studio lost the studio part, the park seemed to have went downhill. It also seems so very cluttered and weird.

    So I was wondering, other than putting the studio back in Disney's Hollywood Studios, what are some ways to make the park a better place to be in?

    Some things I would like to see:
    1. Of course, bring back studio.
    2. Destroy the stupid hat.
    3. Overhaul The great movie ride
    4. Do something around Echo lake.

    But what else?

    Well, TSMM was a step in the right direction. The park needs some dark rides- espeically family friendly rides!

    I'm hoping for the hat- which is pretty much confirmed for a 2010 demo, F! refurb, a new E on the level of ToT that's family friendly, a Pixar Place expansion, a Pixar Animation Studio, and maybe an Indy replacement.


    OH and a huge one in my book- retheme Pizza Planet!!!!!

    The hat is going nowhere

    I would completely abandon the studio idea myself. Blow up the Backlot Tour and replace it with an expanded Pixar Studio (maybe the Crush coaster or Monsters Inc ride or and Incredibles attraction, etc etc) and create a new Broadway section with new attractions including at least one stage show

    Turn the Backlot Express into the Mos Eisley Cantina and make Sounds Dangerous into a Phineas & Ferb attraction

    As to "The Great Movie Ride" - I had heard that the original plan for that was to have Muppet Versions/Parodies of the classic films, but when Jim Henson died and the original plan to buy the Muppets fell through that idea was scrapped.

    I think a re-do of the ride incorporating that would be pretty fun.

    Re: What can be done to Hollywood Studios?

    I want to know why the TNBC ride never went through, especially considering the fanbase. I agree, though, DHS seriously needs rides. Otherwise, it's really just a half- day copy of Universal, except with far less to do. I would love to see an overhaul and as excited as I am for the Fantasyland expansion, I feel like DHS really needs the attention more than anything. I've gone to the parks at least twice a month every month for 14 years, and I can count on one hand the number of times I've visited DHS, and I'd love for that to change.

    You sure about that? The announcement made on the date of the park's 20th anniversary this year makes me think otherwise.

    My dream list for the studios:

    - Total replacement of AAs, lights, speakers and projectors for The Great Movie Ride like SEE and HoP received.

    - Instillation of smoke, lights, lasers etc. effects for Rock N Roller Coaster. They would duplicate the ones found in the WDSPP version.

    - Monsters Inc. Coaster and Radiator Springs Racers for Pixar Place (RRS would incorporate Catastrophe Canyon and junk yard of movie autos)

    - Major upgrades to Fantasmic! including new dragon and replacement of Pocahontas section

    - Newsies street show on the NY set

    - Dick Tracy's Crimestoppers

    - Replacement of Theater of the Stars with Hyperion style facility

    - Nightmare Before Christmas dark ride

    - Maroon Cartoon Studios expansion with Roger Rabbit attractions

    - The Great Muppet Movie Ride or an alternate Muppet E-Ticket dark ride

    - New film loop for the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    Do they ever show full movies? Everytime I've gone there it's usually the same loop of ads for sci fi films and no actual film

    My Dream list is as follows:

    -Hat gone

    -Dick tracy show or dark ride new the NYC side of Streets of America

    -Roger Rabbit ride with maroon studios

    -Another one or two E-Tickets or something else to get everyone together other than a show it seems that's half the day now at MGM, which granted I love the shows but you need like 3 or 4 more rides to balance them out at this moment

    -Rip out the HISTK playground and replace with something anything maybe another dark ride...

    -retheme Pizza Planet it really clashes with Muppet Studios right in front of it...

    that's all I can think of off of the top of my head most of the ideas were already said

    Re: What can be done to Hollywood Studios?

    (Am I the only one who doesn't mind the hat?)

    -But I would add in another E-Ticket ride, and if I had my way it would be Muppet Themed.
    -Also, expanding Pixar Place to include either a Monsters Inc. or Incredibles themed ride, whether it be a dark ride or coaster.
    -Roger Rabbit ride? Please?

    Re: What can be done to Hollywood Studios?

    Needs at least 2 more E ticket attractions! ToT and rockin rollercoaster are the only real big attractions there! also Expand pixar place incredibles, monsters inc, ratatoulli, and a crush coaster all good themes also I like the idea of an UP play area themed around the falls. This would all make it more family friendly for those of us with younger kids!

    They never show full movies for two reasons I suspect. 1) it would be difficult to sit through a movie like the Giant Gila Monster in full and 2) those who do would slow down the process of seats begin turned over and lower the number of customers who could actually eat there. The current collection of ads/cartoons/trailers running 45 minutes works out great IMO. I just want to see a different mix each time I go.

    Ya when you said that I thought WAH??? THEY SHOW FULL MOVIES!?!?! and felt cheated alil but yeah they really do need to expand out the collection of ads etc. I realize they are mostly trying to limit it to "B" flicks but couldn't they add a few others just to make it a tad longer at least so it's 1.15 min long so that way your entire dinner including wait time you should see every ad/cartoon, etc. once maybe a couple twice by the time you pay for your grub and leave...but it's a neat way to eat nonetheless

    • Re-theme LMA to Cars
    • Close the Studio Backlot Tour
    • Build Carsland on the Backlot, a bit with different rides than in California, and include LMA in it.

    That pretty much sums up what I'd do.
