DHS: I beg you not!

Walt Disney World: How I feel of the DHS expansion

So we all know that DHS will go under a huge expansion and refurb with Star Wars Land and maybe Carsland. Now I am perfectly fine with the Star Wars idea but not with Carsland. I basically stem from thinking that DCA was needed of a refurb and so is DHS, but I feel like carbon copies are not the way to go. I think Disneyland should have their own "lands". I would like to see DHS do a mini Monstropolis area with a coaster and expand their Pixar area but not with Carsland. I have nothing against Carsland, I loved the idea although I hate the films. I give Star Wars Land a go but not Carsland. Thoughts?

I'm kinda okay with a Carsland, but Disney better do something different and not a copy! I think they should do a small cars section of a Pixar land, for they already have Toy Story Mania! All they need to do is make it larger! Although, what about Universal having three Harry Potter lands! There is only one Hogwarts in the movies, but three schools will exist! I hope both franchises do something different and not copy!

One thing us adults, and I'm assuming you are an adult, need to keep in mind is that Disney parks target audience is younger kids and families with kids. You don't see rides there that exclude children under 54" tall. I think the tallest you have to be is about 48" (Aerosmith rock 'n roll coaster is 48" and probably the parks' most intense ride) to ride any of their rides. Disney Hollywood Studios does NEED something. I know that most hip 10yos love the Cars movies and most of their parents do as well, plus how many men love to collect cars? I think the theme is pretty clever in my opinion.

Star Wars land is a good thing while carsland is meh. Star Wars will bring a huge demographic to the park while CarsLand will bring little ones and families.

as a grandparent who is with younger grandkids, I come from the idea that the park could use more for the younger set. I see the park needing both Star Wars and Carsland. I also would prefer that Carsland not be a copy but would take a copy to nothing

^^Well,if one of those men is Justin Bieber and the other is Kimbo Slice, I'm good with that.

No dice Mike. Slice wouldn't be able to escape all the hordes of teenage girls who don't want to see a hair harmed on Justice Beaver's head.

Lawrence has got a good point.

I see no reason we can't have both. Although I will be ok without the actual Racers ride I would still love to see the themeing of the area and the actual town of Radiator Springs would be great.
