    Disney Hollywood Studios

    Its actually happening. MGM is getting a name change to the Disney Hollywood Studios! I can't believe it!!!!!!!!!

    President of the WDW Resort, Meg Crofton, announced that effective January 1st, 2008, The Disney MGM Studios will be renamed Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    Found all the info on the DisneyLink you can download from their site.

    It will always be MGM to me though (It's shorter, and calling it Hollywood wounldnt be politically, or geographically, correct)

    What are your thoughts

    It will always be MGM to me, but I do like the name change.

    I'm for the name change. The Disney-MGM relationship had some issues from time to time and frankly, I think the Disney brand is stronger on it's own.

    Will they retain the right to use MGM properties in the Great Movie Ride? Has anyone heard anything about that?
    Have you seen my dad? Would you page him for me?
