I know there are some threads on improving Disney's Hollywood Studios already, but this one will probably not work with their ideas. This thread involves how I would improve the park.
The first thing that's going to be changed is the park name. That's right, my feeling is that the "studio" aspect of the park has really lost its way and can never find its way. Let's face it, the park has abandoned any real pretense of being a real studio. In fact, in the Imagineering Field Guide for the park, there's this little bit of information that says:
As the public expressed more interest in learning about the world behind the scenes, the media obliged with more and more stories and features about these topics. The arrival of DVD media allowed for the movies we purchase to offer much of the backstage information that the Studios park used to focus on. Our recent projects have focused on more immersive experiences that put the Guest in the middle of the action. So, the park is now less about the nuts and bolts of filmmaking craft and more about putting Guests into experiences inspired by film, television, and other media in new and exciting ways. The name Disney's Hollywood Studios reinforces this shift.
So you see, this is one reason why the Studios has abandoned its pretense of being a true studio. After all, why should a theme park cannibalize that which can now be found on DVD? I also think that since the park has abandoned any pretense of being a true studio, we should re-rename the park so that there are no ties to the word "Studios" at all and to relieve the park of being a working studio. Thus, the park will receive a new name. The only one I could come up with is something like Disney Hollywood Adventure. Notice the lack of an apostrophe-S. That's kind of based on what happened with DCA, which for some reason also dropped the possessive from "Disney".
Part of the problem with this park, though, is... well, take a look at this article here, it'll explain: http://progresscityusa.com/2010/02/0...-bout-studios/.
