While we love Carsland I think they should just have it in one park. I think Disney needs to make each park unique and to put Cars at both WDW and DL takes some of the fun from it. I do have to say DHS needs something fresh because it is no longer a fun place to visit.

WHile the ride is similar to test track, it is a very different experience and they will be at two different parks.
I still disagree with your conclusion and your reason why CL should be built in DHS.

I was not talking about ride experience, but ride system. Please re-read my post.

So do you think they would build Avatar Land at AK and a version of Cars Land at HS simultaneously?

Both areas seem that they would be close to the scope that Fantasy Land is and the amount of resources needed would be substantial.

I hope they do both at the same time, but wonder if that would take many years to finish.

I expect LMA and the Backlot Tour to be closed on our next trip in September 2013, but look forward to the new Cars Land and Avatar Land opening sometime in 2015/2016.

I still think the Star Wars are could get an expansion. But I think they would hold off until after the first Disney-produced film is released. Just my opinion, no inside intel though.

I'd be beyond delighted should this rumor prove to be true. Spent a day in Carsland this summer and was absolutely amazed by it. Radiator Springs Racers is a fantastic ride and the theming in the entire land was outstanding.

Most people never get out to DL and this would be a great addition to the Studios, finally putting the Backlot Tour out of its shadow-of-its-former-self misery.

WDW are always trying to 'counter-program' and find something targeting boys. This would be a great addition.

While still a rumor, The DIS has confirmed from multiple sources that Disney will officially announce this week that they are bringing Cars Land to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Lights, Motors, Action! and the Backlot Tour will be leveled to make room for an expansion of Pixar Place to include the new land.


So now the DIS is getting confirmation from bus drivers and Mousekeepers?

I have mixed emotions. It would be a desperately needed shot in the arm for DHS, and Carsland seems amazing. It will be nice to be able to experience it without the price tag of a trip to CA.

However, I feel Carsland is better suited for DCA- thematically. The whole idea of the trip on Route 66 just fits so well in a state in the western half of the country. I also like the idea of unique attractions at both parks. If I'm being totally honest, I'd be happier with an expansion of Star Wars at the park closest to me.

Regardless of what they do with the area, we will miss LMA. We really love that show. Sounds like a trip to France is in order.

No. I don't even want this to be a rumor, its way too soon to take the one thing that's boosted California Adventure's popularity and shove it in somewhere else. I'd personally never like to see it in WDW. How about we get creative and start coming up with different areas/rides for different parks. Oh wait, I totally forgot, that'd cost more money and Disney can't afford ideas much these days, they buy them for 4 billion dollars (see Star Wars).

DHS definitely needs help. But Cars Land is still not the answer.

Maybe build something using the Star Wars or Marvel franchise, or even maybe a Monsters Inc. University area.

Check this site out and think of possibilities:

http://monstersuniversity.com/edu/index.html

And then there is all the classic Disney characters and their stories that rarely get their own attractions.

There is so much more that can be done.

Disney can not build Marvel attractions in WDW due to Universal having theme park rights east of the Mississippi. This is why the Avenger monorail could only run on the MK line. They couldn't run it on the Epcot line because that loop goes inside the park.

His answer was no way.

It also makes sense - why would Disney start cannibalizing DCA visiting guests by creating exact duplicate in FL? Cars Land and BVS were built to revitalize a broken park. CL is drawing record crowds to DCA and filling up the hotel rooms.

Secondly, the ride system, which is the same as Test Track, will be affected by heavy rain and lightening storms - which happens quite often in FL - will close the ride down.

I can't imagine Disney building this.

Sea
Well get over it because it will happen. My relative works at Sci Fi diner and it is true.

Besides, why can't it be at both? The same could be said of Universal HP. Both California and Florida will have Harry Potter and no one cares or thinks they won't be successful. There is a lot of people that only visit one park, Disneyland or WDW so it will do fine.

Isn't it interesting I can give you a name, time and place of my source - yet some people have a difficulty believing it is true.

The "Dis" give only gives you "multiple sources" and still claim it is a rumor and some of you believe that Cars Land a done deal at WDW.

I was hoping more for a Pixar Land myself with rides/areas/restaurants for different movies. But, I understand that the visual impact of walking into Radiator Springs is much greater.

yes ride system is same, but people judge whether they like a ride based on experience.

Look at all the dark rides...they are the same basic ride system too.

Plus, if you haven't noticed Disney has been trending on repeating things in both parks. While yes it annoying and cheap in a way for the vast majority of people they like it since they know they can see it no matter what.


I have been to DL 3 times and it amazes me how surprised CM and other guests are that I have been to both DL and WDW.
