*Expand Pixar Place

If they do that, there will be an explosion of attendance at HS. I don't think anyone would disagree with that!

Space is probably the biggest issue, if you look at the satellite images of the area, but it should be possible, with careful planning, to put both "lands" into DHS.

I love this idea!

You seem to be looking forward to being disappointed...

disney has no reason to do this - especially right now. and contrary to the rampant - if unfounded - speculation on boards such as this...i don't think that studios expansion is anywhere close to high on their list.

they have a bigger problem with the overhead/attendance ratio at animal kingdom...and EPCOT is starting to lag...which means they are going to have the same problem there on the horizon.

Now...it would be logical for them to move quickly on the star wars thing in preparation for new movies and merchandise onslaught....

but they just don't DO that anymore...nor for along time. their standard lag time on park placement is about 5 years later. toy story, monster inc, memo...tons of examples.

In fact...the last thing to open before or around the time of the movie was It's Tough to Be a Bug...and that was only because it was a new park thin on actually stuff.

just be cautious here...they aren't looking to dump alot more cash into their parks right now...no matter what anyone else is doing.

Besides...cars is bad...they already did it....those reason still stand too.

give me something fresh...not clones

I wouldn't mind a Star Wars land, I actually think it would be utterly amazing if done to the highest Disney standard. It just lacks that "little kid wonder" that other posters have mentioned, as most pre-schoolers aren't huge Star Wars buffs yet (most ;o), so it's just not the same. I do think Star Wars, if they go forward with making episodes 7 and 8, could be the more realistic answer to WWHP from a franchise and cult following capacity, so it wouldn't surprise me.

Why can't we have both? :D
I agree this would be a great coed attraction! Has anyone heard anything about a star wars land? I think they'll put at least one attraction in bc of the latest LucasFilm purchase. Probably at HS if anything...

I agree there would probably be only room for one "land" and only room for one attraction for one of them....
