                                Great Ideas.. They need to update DHS, I would love to see Animal Kingdom and DHS get the $1.1B upgrade that DCA is getting. DHS has been open for 20 years and besides TSMM, ToT, and RRC there isn't many attractions that you feel you have to do when you go there.

                                    The Backstage Studio Tram Tour

                                    Here is the spiel for the tram portion of The Backstage Studio Tram Tour.

                                    Mike Brassell: Hello! Welcome to the Backstage Studio Tram Tour. I'm Mike, and I'll be your guide through this magical tour behind the scenes.

                                    Mike Brassell: The area we are apporaching is called the Production Area. It's here where a movie star's outfits, Hollywood backdrops, and Disney theme park concepts come to life.

                                    Mike Brassell: Up ahead, you will see the vehicles owned by your favorite Disney characters. Some of the vehicles here include Aladdin's magic carpet, Cinderella's pumpkin carriage, and Cruella De Vil's car.

                                    Mike Brassell: The Scenic Shop is where professional craftsmen work on the backdrops of future blockbusters.

                                    Mike Brassell: The Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida has the world's largest wardrobe. Did you know that Mickey Mouse has 175 different outfits? These range from a SCUBA suit to a tuxedo. Here are some costumes worn in Captain EO, The Princess Diaries, and The Game Plan.

                                    Mike Brassell: The Greens Department provides the plants you see in the movies.

                                    Mike Brassell: Walt Disney Imagineering has a station at The Walt Disney World Studios. Here, the Imagineers design concepts for Disney's 27 theme parks around the globe.

                                    Tour Guide: Here is our award-winning Earful Tower. This 13-story "mouse-terpiece" serves as the icon of The Walt Disney World Studios. The tower is not designed to hold water. Instead, it was designed to be a tribute to the life of Walt Disney, the man who started the magic.

                                    Mike Brassell: On Residential Street, we display the homes of famous TV and movie families. Don't be fooled by the homes because these are facades or false fronts. These are built so the camera will only see what it has to see. In fact, some of the facades were recycled from Mickey's Birthdayland, an former land at Magic Kingdom Park.

                                    Mike Brassell: Across the way is New York Street. Here, you can visit New York City without leaving The Walt Disney World Studios.

                                    Mike Brassell: The Bone Yard is the resting place for many of the vehicles seen in the movies. You can see the Shaggin' Wagon from Dumb & Dumber, the stagecoach from EPCOT Center's old World of Motion ride, and the steamroller from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

                                    Mike Brassell: On the right, we have an authentic piece of Disney history. That Gulfstream 1 was known in airports across the country as November Two Three Four Mickey Mouse. But we just call it The Mouse. In 1964, Walt Disney and his hand-picked team used this plane to scout locations for what he called the Florida Project. Soon, they secretly began purchasing thousands of acres of land, which became the Walt Disney World Resort in 1971. During the creation of the resort and later EPCOT Center, The Mouse shuttled studio executives and Imagineers between Burbank and Orlando making it the most-used executive aircraft in the country. Appropriately, The Mouse retired here in 1992. As Walt used to say, “It was all started by a mouse”—in this case, the 234 Mickey Mouse.

                                    Annie: Are you ready to go, CB?

                                    Mike Brassell: Sure am. That was The Walt Disney World Studios' special effects coordinator, Annie. She's going to let us into the filming of one of the takes for a scene in the upcoming film Of Disasters & Desserts.

                                    Mike Brassell: The effects we'll be seeing today are rain, fire, and wind. They'll come together to form the storm scene in our production.

                                    Annie: And cut! Man, that was a good take, wasn't it!

                                    Mike Brassell: That's right, Annie. Don't worry about water being wasted. We recyle all of our water to use in the next take. In fact, the water cannons are so powerful that they could launch a basketball over The Empire State Building.

                                    Mike Brassell: We hoped you enjoyed tour of the backlot. Make sure to take all your personal belongings or they will be confiscated by the tram driver! Ha-ha! Please take small children by the hand, and have a magical day at The Walt Disney World Studios.

                                      But I like the name Hollywood Studios. And I love the Alien scene in the Great Movie Ride. It's like the best part. Plus Star Tours and Indiana Jones seem to be getting a lot of stuff- replacing Alien in GMR with Star Wars, Indy getting a stunt show AND ride, Star Tours ll, and Star Wars being the theme for a store. Disney doesn't own Ninja Turtles/Avatar. Superstar Television sounds like DCA's old (and stupid) attraction, Superstar Limo. Why remove Lights, Motors, Action? It is popular and better than anything on the tram tour. What does a tram tour, Avatar, National Treasure, and the Princess and the Frog have to do with Pixar? Who Framed Roger Rabbit took place in Hollywood, not New York.
                                      All I'm saying is that the rides in this park are not supporting the theme of the area it's in.

                                        I have been looking at these all days.
                                        Thoughs:
                                        1. Some of the movies featured here are not Disney. this makes it highly unlikely for Disney to include them in a park.
                                        2. Princess and the Frog musical sounds really cheesy.
                                        3. Phineas and Ferb? I was happy that most of these plans did not include Disney Channel shows. I am not of a fan of Disney Channel. I am,however, a fan of old Disney Channel shows, ( Kim Possible, House of Mouse, Sutie life, hotel version, etc) I think putting a Phineas and Ferb attraction would ruin Disney.
                                        4.Journey to Music land is by far the best thing you have come up with. Most little kids today have probably not even heard of Silly Symphonies. If this attraction is created just right, it will be one of my favorites.
                                        5. Would the Osborne lights be up all year round? That would be a lot of electricity to pay!
                                        6. Pixar Place should have more of the older Pixar films. In fact, it should include all of the Pixar films. Maybe if you create another section where some of the other stuff ( millianare, avatar,national treasure etc). Pixar Place would actually be , Pixar Place.
                                        7. I think this is a really good improvement of MGM ( yes i still call it that). I feel that MGM today is very lacking. The only good attractions, IMO, are Fantasmic, Beauty and Beast musical, Rocking Roller Coaster, Backlot Tour, Osbourne lights, Muppets show, and Tower of Terror.
                                        Great job!
