    Goodbye MGM, you will be missed

    So the name change becomes official today I believe...I can't say that I will no longer call it MGM but we will see. Have we heard any announcements about any changes coming to the Studios? I know there were rumors that somethings would be announced today.

    Nothing outside of the usual rumors here and there about the hat, the GMR, etc. etc. Nothing "real" yet that I've seen.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    I'm certain I'll be one of those folks who keeps calling it MGM for quite a while. Eventually I'll catch on but not quickly I'll bet.

    I think I mostly refer to it just as "the Studios", because when I talk to my non-Disney-obsessed friends, they got confused between "MGM" and "Universal". So no great change for me.

    DD referred to it as Studios over a year ago. I found it easier to call it that because it didn't confuse non-Disney geeks as to it's affiliation. I won't have a problem at all.

    It will become either the Studios or stay MGM in my book.

    Yep, Always MGM to me. Never understood places changing names multiple times.
    If we can dream it, we can do it!

    I too have always called it MGM, so now I am not sure what I will call it. Probably MGM for awhile.
