Today Disney have taken the wraps off the new logo for the MGM studios which will soon be renamed as - Disney's Hollywood Studios.

What do you make of it?

Looks pretty snazy to me

They probably had millions at their disposal though. :)

I think it looks snazzy.

But millions is like pennies to them :P.

I love the logo, looks very classy, fun and yes, simple yet effective :).

Bravo Disney! :D

LOL it doesn't take millions to do that at all.
The logo is ok, but the name is a bit crap. The specific link to Hollywood I don't like. I would have probably opted for just Walt Disney Studios.

They had to rename it though, as the contact with MGM has come to an end.
I’m really loving the logo though. Something I don’t think will date quickly and has a very Hollywood-Disney feel about it too.

It's adequate, i'd expect nothing less from a firm that probably has the same marketing budget per month as Tussauds parks have for 10 years.

Sat Apr 18, 2009 11:20 pm

Just peoples reviews on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.

There are a number of different tracks, a different one for each of the 5 trains.

The combinations are:

Train 1: Back In The Saddle/Dude Looks Like A Lady
Train 2: Young Lust/F.I.N.E./Love In An Elevator
Train 3: Love In An Elevator/Walk This Way
Train 4: Nine Lives
Train 5: Sweet Emotion

It certainly would be. Also very ugly. Here's a picture of an almost-clone of the ride but outside.

^^^Oh agreed it looks much better themed and indoors. I enjoyed it but wouldn't say it was my favourite ride when I went to America. I think the song playing was Sweet Emotion for me....which I'm now in the mood for....*goes to look for Toys in the Attic album*

Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios

Sun Aug 16, 2015 3:46 am

Disney World's Hollywood Studios will be receiving a 'Toy Story Land' similar to that found at Disneyland Paris! However this time, they're going big!

The 11 acre project will be based on the character Andy's back garden, guests are supposedly going to feel shrunk to toy size! "We really want people to feel like they're in that movie" says Kathy Mangum, a Walt Disney Imagineering Executive.

The land will feature two major attractions, a family coaster based on 'Slinky Dog' and on a second rude the 'Green Aliens' will take guest for a ride on their flying saucers, with 'the claw' hanging above their heads!

Very little is known about this project, however below is some conceptual art fir you to enjoy!

Image

An opening year has not been set as of yet, but as you can see, the area is quite large and will add a more child friendly land, with 'Star Wars Land' also bring opened in the near future!

As well as this, Soarin' at Epcot will receive a new theme and name, "Soarin' Around the World" will open in 2016.

So do you think this is a good installation to the Orlando theme park? Discuss!

Is it just me or does it look like that Slinky Coaster has the lift and the circuit, then what looks like a launch with rings over the top?! That would be an amazing kiddie coaster, like Firechaser, just a tame launch as a child's first experience :D
I know it's only concept art so could vary hugely, but it certainly looks like it'll be great :)
