    new things for studios

    scream scape reports

    Lots of changes are in store for the Disney-MGM Theme Park, revealed to Cast Members in a series of meetings this week from Disney World management. Confirmed new additions include the arrival of the Block Party Bash parade from California Adventure sometime in March 2008, an updated Playhouse Disney show will open in February 2008 following a month long closure of the theater. A new show of some kind will open in the ABC Theater in May 2008, though details were not given. Many expect this to possibly be a new indoor version of the High School Musical show. Jedi Academy will now be a permanent fixture in front of Star Tours that will take place on an all new stage that will be built. Over at the Toy Story Mania area of the park, that entire back area will be renamed Pixar Place. It was also revealed that the old Soundstage 1 building formerly used for the Mickey Meet & Greet area will not be used for Toy Story Mania but is being reserved for another new attraction that will come online in 2009-2010. Given the size of the space in the area, including the now unused building once used for the walking portion of the backstage tour, and some would like to think that another Pixar based attraction could be headed here, such as Crush’s Coaster, but that’s just random speculation at this point and not even a rumor. The park is planning some kind of lightning effects updates to add to the Sorcerer’s Hat in the future and the Playhouse Disney concert series will return this fall but take place in a backstage parking lot area next to Rock ‘n Roller Coaster and take place around the time of the coaster’s planned rehab.

    Is Rockin' Rollercoaster going to change or will it just be spruced up?
    Dropping out and moving to Disney World because characters only have to be sixteen.

    Mustard! Now let's not be silly!

    It's great that they are finally using some of those buildings that were shut down. There should be no wasted space in any WDW park. Just my opinion.



    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

    I'm glad MGM is getting some much needed attention! Block Party Bash will be warmly welcomed!

    I agree!

    This all sounds really cool
    1. My little sister LOOOOOOVES High School Musical and she'd love it if they did an indoor version of their show
    2. I hope this new Playhouse Disney show involves Mickey Mouse clubhouse and Little Einsteins. I happen to like those
    3. YAY FOR PIXAR PLACE! This sounds like loads of fun
    Now, where's Muppetland? Comeone Disney. YOU OWN THEM NOW!!

    I heard that there are 5 different light shows in the DLRP version. That would be pretty sweet....
