I was the only one on the bus to Hollywood Studios from Kidani and the bus driver was sharing several rumors with me.

1. Carsland is definitely coming to DHS. It will replace Lights, Motors, Action and the Backlot.
2. The reason that they are adding 2,000 seats to Fantasmic is because World of Color is coming to that amphitheater....

He said that imagineers from California were in town looking to make improvements over at DHS.

Not sure how I feel about Carsland and World of Color. I've never been to Disneyland. I plan to soon but if Carsland and World of Color are coming to WDW, it might be longer before I get to Disneyland. Just my opinion of course.

DHS needs some help and I hope it gets some love soon!

Both are possible, butare also extremely general rumors that have been mentioned by many in passing time and again. Cars Land has been beaten to death in rumor-ville so at this point I really don't care if it comes. WoC however would be an interesting fit, given Fantasmic's not so fantastic operating reputation.... we'll have to wait and see, but I doubt they'd move it to Florida given the modifications they'd have to make to the area.

ugh! Ok the seats for Fantasmic are because Disney surveyed the people who had to stand vs the people who sat and there was a huge difference in satisfaction, so they decided to spend the money to build seats in the standing area. It has been much more rumored that a WOC type show would come to DTD, than to DHS to replace Fantasmic, but considering they can't even sign a tenant at DTD, I certainly don't see that happening. As far as replacing Fantasmic, maybe down the road, but nothing short term that I'm aware of. Granted, I get information by scouring the internet and finding people with a good track record, so I'm not by any means the final word on any of this, but nothing has been mentioned elsewhere, and that'd be a pretty big thing.

Carsland is NOT greenlit. It is being considered, and on EPCOT's 30th, the lead art designer for carsland was reportedly poking around DHS. The latest information coming from other sites indicates it may be more of a pixar place expansion with elements from carsland and the Monsters Inc Coaster finally brought to life, but there are several plans, none of which have been decided on.

It's great that CMs discuss what's going on, but they need to put the disclaimer that they are RUMORS and should never say "definitely happening" until things are both announced by the company and half built.

Nonetheless, thanks for reporting!

Carsland would be neat. But WoC is lame. Saw it at DL, and we were definitely disappointed. A revamped Fantasmic, or an entirely new show, would be a much better option.

I saw the World of Color at Disneyland too, and was not terribly impressed either. I have seem many night time shows at Disney World that were better, IMO.

Sorry. That bus driver should be fired. There's no way Fantasmic will be replaced. It's way to popular. WOC is nothing more than an elaborate version of the Fountains At Bellagio in Las Vegas. I like the Downtown Disney idea. Maybe they could put it in the water there. But removing Fantasmic from DHS will only happen when DHS is taken over by Universal.

The Cars Land thing? I don't know about that one either. Perhaps they put the Radiator Springs ride in at DHS, but I'm not sure about an entire land.

This would be so exciting. That is the one thing that I love about Disney - just when you think you have seen it all.....

And that's the one thing my husband hates $$$

Is it just me that thinks Carsland should stay in California? I only say this because the film is set in California so I think it's perfect there and really shouldn't come to Orlando.....

Ya know....

With today's Lucasfilm announcement, I'm starting to wonder if all the prep work and rumors of SOMETHING replacing the remnants of the Backstage Tour and the Stunt show theater could in fact be from a potential Star Wars expansion within MGM.

Disney has said many times that Carsland is NOT coming to Florida for a number of reasons (Supposed to help pull guests to California to help that resort's efforts to become a Destination resort, Similarities between Test Track and Radiator Springs Racers, etc)....... But people have been asking for a Star Wars Land for awhile now with the primary reason people believed it wasn't happening being Lucas' lack of interest and/or being too demanding. As that's no longer a factor......

I said the exact same thing today.. in fact, I said it in June when I was there.. in a 'wishful but oh well' kinda way. "Disney should build a 'Star Wars land' over in the backlot area.. that'd be a good use of the space.. oh well."

Hmm..

That is what I am thinking also. If you keep putting the same things in both states then it opulls from people that go to DL to see it. If you build something diferent in DHS then you have now made to new things people really want to see. Cars land in CA and Star Wars in DHS. To me thats the way to make money.
