    Disney's Burbank Studios would be much more accurate.

    And we must applaud them on not being so sleezy as to have Pixar or ABC as the "other name".
    I am glad they don't have Pixar or ABC in the name. But I do agree with Disney Studios Florida, or just Disney Studios would have sounded more simple.

    I seriously don't recall on this board any of our supposed insiders saying this was to be the new name. Many said that a new name was coming and, obviously, they were correct in that aspect but, I honestly don't recall anybody saying this was going to be the new name.

    I'm not questioning if anyone knew, just why some of the more vocal people who claim to be on the inside didn't feel that it was neccessary to share this information.

    I could be completely wrong and could of totally missed something in the past but, I'm 99% sure nobody on this board shared this info with the rest of us. Just seems odd and fishy...

    Why? The park isn't about the Disney Company in the real world. It's about the make believe of Hollywood.

    How about calling it "Walt DIsney Studios Florida"?

    I think the new name is the best that I've heard running around the rumor mill. Hollywood is a place, but it's a lot more than that. It's the name that represents all the glitz and glamour of entertainment.

    I rather it called Disney's Hollywoodland or something like that. To me, a studio should be called a studio when it really is a working studio... such as Universal Studios Hollywood.

    Re: Disney-MGM Studios name change official!

    I don't like the Hollywood name at all.
    I associate the name with egotistical movie stars. I would rather it reflect Florida or even Pixar.

    I really liked the MGM name because it makes me think of old time Hollywood (which I prefer). No matter what they name it, I will call it MGM anyway.

    EDIT...

    I do like Coheteboy's suggestion of Disney's Hollywoodland. I think that is a better name for what the park is.

    I know. I was being a bit facetious. When I heard this name, it seemed as though Disney has a bunch of studios around the world and the one at WDW happens to be Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    It would be better if they named it something that would evoke more of a utopia than something that forces the mind to think of the real Walt Disney Studios which happens to be located in Burbank, California.

    Hmmm - it's better than Disney-Pixar Studios, but using a real place name that's on the other side of the country?
    Confusion ahoy!
    Hollywoodland, Movie World or Disney Studios Orlando would all work (some better than others), but I think Joe-Sixpack will just get his coasts muddled.

    I like it. It is much better than Disney-Pixar Studios and much much better than Walt Disney Studios Florida (though personally, I would have chosen Disney-ABC Studios). Now all I have to do is get used to changing from MK, EP, DMGM & AK to MK, EP, DHS, AK..... oh screw it, I'll still say Studios or DMGM.

    Yesterday, Disney registered a whole bunch of domains for the new park name, including....
    While none of them are currently active, I'd keep an eye on them later this year.

    And on another note.... The Wand coming down, Universal making the offical HP announcement, DMGM changing names........ what never-ending rumor is going to come to an end next? Monorail expansion? Beastlie Kingdomme?

    MGM gets a name change and its a huge news, but DCA gets a billion dollar makeover, and Disney hasn't even acknowledged it. I wonder if Disney ever will.

    The new name isn't half bad. It's actually kind of fitting, all things considered.
