    Disney-MGM staying for now!

    Well on another site just saw the pics of the archway back together. It still has the Disney-MGM sign on it.....while it does not put to rest the rumor, it should put to rest the name going anywhere in the next 2 months rumor. It looks really great also....

    I heard this too. That's interesting. And suggestive about the licensing agreement. But I agree; the new sign means no change in the near future at all.

    Re: Disney-MGM staying for now!

    here's the pic you've probably seen,



    I doubt this means anything as well. This is gonna be one of those rumors that's gonna last a while and will be debated until it finally turns out nothing is going to change

    off topic,

    Kevin, were you at AK yesterday afternoon?

    Re: Disney-MGM staying for now!

    Just random really, I really enjoyed the Magic of Disney Animation when I went a couple of weeks ago. And the archway looks so beautiful, its a pity I couldn't have seen it in person. It was so ugly when I went.

    Re: Disney-MGM staying for now!

    This sign has nothing to do with a potential name change...

    They re-hab many things even right before they shut down.

    Take anything with a grain of salt. The merchandise is what will show it, not the acutal singage.

    That icon! Monorail copulation is both disturbing and oddly compelling at the same time. I cannot look away, and yet I cannot watch any more!

    No midweek for me, sorry!

    Yes it was that pic MKT thank you for posting it.

    While it is true you can't count anything till it is built! But I dont think they would go through all the money to take it down refurb it then put it back up just to take it down 2 months later. Again we can't count on anything till it changes but I think we have this name for atleast a year.

    no problem... when I took it, Bill and I were looking at it and we just kept saying... "something looks different about it"

    it's missing the green tile/stucco on the upper part.

    Re: Disney-MGM staying for now!

    According to many sites (like JHM & Mouseplanet), the current rumor is that the name change will occur in January. What remains to be seen is what the new name will be. Some are saying it will be Walt Disney Studios while others are saying just Disney Studios.

    As for the arch, I like the new look better (with the tile only going halfway).

    I agree... it looks newer and cleaner while still keeping the original vibe of the park intact.

    For those interested, this is what the archway looked pre-refurb.
