  • Disney Confirms That 'Disney-MGM' Name Won't Change

    There has been a lot of speculation for years that the Disney-MGM Studios theme park could change its name, but Disney says that won't be happening anytime soon.
    It was first reported that it would become the Walt Disney Studios park after a naming agreement with MGM expired.
    Then, industry analysts thought the name would be shared by MGM and Pixar once Disney acquired the movie studio last year.
    Disney confirmed that an area of the park will be named for Pixar once a new Toy Story ride opens, but the MGM name will remain for the entire park.

    This means absolutely nothing to me. This is the same Disney that said Lutz was crazy and nothing was afoot for Tom Sawyer Island at Disneyland. This is the same Disney that said that 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Rocket Rods were closed for an extended refurbishment. Disney lies, plain and simple.

      Orland Sent. is reporting the same thing. Who knows, I've heard that the change will be gradual throughout the the park in it's entirety.

          This is probably just a response to all the rumors in hopes that, for the time being at least, speculation will subside.

            It will always be Disney/MGM studios to me.

            Just like I think it is EPCOT not Epcot. The letters used to stand for something.

              You're confusing EPCOT with EPCOT Center. EPCOT was the city idea. EPCOT Center (Epcot) is the park.

                  For simplicity, the "center" was later dropped off the theme park title. It's now just "EPCOT"

                      When "Center" was dropped the name became Epcot, with only the "E" capitalized. EPCOT, all caps, denotes the city.

                        This story makes sense. A little annoying, but it makes sense.

                          Hopefully that is true and they are keeping the MGM part in the name. If they are going to change it it should only be to Disney Studios or Walt Disney Studios. I was not thrilled about adding PIXAR to the name of the park. Renaming a section within the park is OK with me.

                          Wasn't the "E" in EPCOT supposed to be Experimental?

                              Sorry about that good catch - yes it IS supposed to Experimental - too many middle school science projects in my head at the moment - I corrected the original post
