  • Offical Name of Disney MGM Studios/Disney's Hollywood Studios?

    Okay you history buffs out there. I know the park has changed names in 2008...But back in the day--does anyone know the OFFICIAL and formal name for Disney-MGM Studios? Is it just that, or did it have Park on the end? (I don't think it was Theme Park, cause DAK was the only one I could find that used that term on the end). Thanks for your help....

    I believe that when it opened that was the name. As that is the name on the dedication plaque at the end of Hollywood Blvd.

      From your "DAK Formal Name?" thread:

      For many of the early years of Disney-MGM, the Park was always officially referred to as the "Disney-MGM Studios Theme Park." The "Theme Park" part of the name was an actual contract stipulation with MGM, as MGM wanted it clear that what Disney was operating was not part of MGM's studio production business.

      Even Cast Members were instructed they always had to use the awkward tag "Theme Park" when quoting the name, making for quite a constant mouthful.

      Years later during a contract renegotiation, new MGM management agreed to remove that requirement from the contract, and the Park could finally be referred to as just Disney-MGM Studios.

      I think it's kind of funny that after all those years of hating having to use the "Theme Park" tag with Disney-MGM...the company now seems to like tagging it on to its other Parks.

        The Official name on opening day "Disney-MGM Studios Theme Park". DAK's working name was "Disney's Wild Animal Kingdom" but the "wild" was dropped before opening day due to similaritites with Mutual of Omaha's TV show's name. Epcot was always "EPCOT Center", and The MK, was just that, even if some people still believe it's name is "WDW".

        EDIT: oops sorry, had not read the inquiry was answered up above already.

          I think the official opening day title was "I can't believe tourists will lay down $50 for a park with 2 rides"

            Thanks everyone. I realized I had asked that question before, but for some reason my searches never pull up what I'm looking for. Must be doing something wrong. But thanks for the responses.
