Time to start the debate on a DHS name change again...

August 25, 2017, 11:13 AM

Three years back, a colorful post was put on TPI regarding a name change for DHS. The posts inspired really good ideas however, what was missing was Disney's vision for the park. Now that we have a clear understanding of what is coming, I think it's time to start the debate again. Disney owns Lucasfilm, ILM, and Pixar. All 3 properties were started by Lucas. ILM has played a significant roll in creative consulting for attractions. Lucasfilm and Pixar properties will account for 7 of it's attractions by 2019 and half of its current Character interactions in the parks. Lucasfilm ILM Studios anyone?

Disney's Film Set - we can call it DFS for short.

Eisner's folly?

Change Aerosmith to a Howard the Duck ride and the Tower of Terror to THK1138 Drop and rename the park George Lucas World.

The okay movie park

Disney's Attic, where they store IPs that don't fit anywhere else.

Disney's Constantly Changing Theme Park.

They still have a sort of theme: Stories, and movies. Not really movie production, so away with the 'Hollywood', but maybe CineWorld, or StoryWorld. Those names on that survey are pretty bad, Storyverse being the only ok one in there. They should have a name that gets the theme of the park, wich is to immerse people on stories and franchises, maybe something with Adventure, or would that be to similar to Universal's Island of Adventure?

What about Disney's cinema kingdom?
Could fit with animal and magic, just leaves epcot on its own, but to be fair I presume that they will change epcot's name after guardians of the galaxy and ratatouille open up.

I went to Hollywood studios yesterday and I suddenly thought that when are they going to close toy story mania to change the entrance so you enter through toy story land. They can't close down another ride even if it is for a couple of weeks. Also what's going to happen to the current Pixar place. There may be room to put a meet and greet in the current toy story mania queue line but if they still use the queue for the ride it will just be deserted.

Why not a truly accurate name? How about DHP - Disney's Half Park?

Why would they need a few weeks to change the entrance of Toy Story Mania? They can do it overnight.

Why would the queue line be deserted as if that is even possible? A meet and greet will have a line. Not even possible to have no one there. The standby line will be occupied too.

Maybe they should name the park based on how much it costs to get in. So formerly Hollywood Studios would be: "$107 + $20 Half-Day Park #2".

How about "Don't Blink" or "Under Construction".
