    Disney Pixar Studios !?!?

    I just discovered the following at Screamscape.com but have only seen mention of it there - anyone else have any more info?

    "Lots of buzz this week about the eventual re-branding of the park as Disney-Pixar Studios. From the sound of things, they are looking to tie lots of little announcements into this to build it up into a bigger event announcement. Other projects that could be tied to the announcement include the rumored start of a new “scary” Jack’s Halloween Party event at the Studios that would Jack Skellington as the icon character. There are people looking long and hard at the empty ABC Studios Theater building (former home to Superstar Television) to come up with something to put in there. And apparently a WDI team is looking into a variety of ride concepts that could possibly be put to use as the basis of a new Indiana Jones themed ride concept… if they can tie it into whatever the storyline is for the forth and final film.

    While this all seems well and good I am concerned about todays rumour that a copy of the Cursh coaster in paris might be coming to WDW but with a Cars theme. That sounds really lame...Cruch fits with the theme of the coaster but how can Cars do the same?

    Also the ride has serious capacity issues resulting in nearly 2 hour que lines for a short 1. Min 30 second ride. Also at the lowest attended Disney Park in the world.

    A Cars coaster would definitely be a tough sell ... but a Cars themed Speedway over at the MK - that would be a nice fit.

    Twin coaster like Primeval Whirl and issue solved.

    There's been a bit of mention about Disney-PIXAR Studios here on MiceChat. Try searching around the forum a bit. The recent "Captain Rex fired?" thread has a little bit of information too.

    I'd trust half of what you hear.
    Because half of that info is correct. The rest is made up. You figure out which half.

    Though, I suppose no one is going to kill me if I point this out.

    Its actually a Monsters Inc. ride using crush coaster. Capacity wont be an issue when you have other new rides like Toy Story Mania and Star Tours 2 soaking up the crowds.

    Monsters Inc could work. I would rather have a change of theme than just clone atrractions. Sure it's cheaper, but its so not interesting!

    I prefer "The Disney-MGM Studios". Thank you, very much. Of course, "The Disney-Lucas Studios" has a nice ring to it.

    A document has been filed for the addition of a Pixar Studios sign in MGM, most likely on Mickey Avenue.

    Oops, Bill posted this already. Sorry.

    Well, it may not be a concrete sign like the said Mickey Avenue sign. However, it is certainly a sign of things to come.

    if you ask me i have a feeling that mgm studios and DCA will be renamed the disney/pixar studios in the future. they are both similar with attractions and are even getting new attractions that are the same.
