Talk about major cheese...

Published: August 10, 2007 at 6:00 PMNot sure on the "Disney Studios Florida"... can't agree with making it sound like a Universal Park. I was fine with Disney-Pixar Studios and agree that I should've been anything without Hollywood in it.
Published: August 10, 2007 at 7:07 PMComing up with the alternate names was fun. Just take existing park names and twist 'em a bit. I got the biggest chuckle from Disney's Movie Kingdom. I couldn't bring myself to add EPCOM (Experimental Prototype Community of Movies) to the choices though....

Published: August 12, 2007 at 3:03 PMDisney Studios Florida just seems to roll off the tongue well. Sure it sounds reminiscent of Universal Studios - but perhaps that just means Universal has named their parks well?
Here's a suggestion for the next question of the week: Given the new name of "Disney's Hollywood Studios", what do you think the park's nickname will end up being?
When a park has a long or unwieldy name, people tend to end up using a nickname. I think in the past most of us referred to the park as "MGM", because that was the quickest way to say which park you were talking about. Disney's California Adventure becomes "DCA", "The California Park", or often in South California just "The Other Park".
I can't see us referring to this new park as "Hollywood". So what will it be? "DHS"? "The Studios"? "The Movie Park"? Or will people still call it "MGM" for years into the future?

Published: August 13, 2007 at 8:15 PMUniversal Studios cleverly decided to name their parks "Universal Studios." I wonder how much market research went into that?
I have no strong objection to using "Hollywood" in the title (unless people start thinking they've moved the park to Hollywood, Florida). The best part of the park is the front section where they re-create "old Hollywood," I think.
Published: August 14, 2007 at 6:07 AMI'm disappointed, but it probably doesn't matter. Most people will still call it MGM or just say "The Studios."
