    Re: Where is MGM?

    as far as I know Disney has decided that they wanted to expand the reach of MGM. Instead of it solely looking back on "classic Hollywood"...they wanted it to incorporate Music, Movies, Theater, and Tv shows. To go along with the change, MGM's name has been changed.



    I only hope they don't change the buildings. Being a huge fan of Art Deco...that would make me sad.

        In a nutshell, the name changed because the deal with MGM ended.

          MGM has now merged with 20th Century Fox which may be part of the reason the contract was not extended.

            Contracts ended between Disney and MGM. Unfortunately this means the name is no more.

                      Persomally I would have preferred Disney-MJMcB studios, but they went in a different direction

                        I think it will be called MGM for many moons to come. It's really hard to change an established name and MGM is has become so "Disney"...

                          There are at least two MGMs that I know of... the resort/casinos in Detroit and Vegas. I do not care much for the new name but will go with the flow and call is DHS. Personally, I think it would have been a better name to call it Walt Disney Studios FL.

                            Is it just me or does DHS sound like Disney High School?

                              I would have preferred The Walt Disney Studios Florida as well, but do they actually MAKE anything in the park anymore? I know back in the day they filmed shows, made movies, etc... in the park. But, now it seems like all the soundstages are attractions and I never hear about anything filming there (besides ESPN week and the cheerleading things). It just seems like a glorified theme park now and no longer a functioning "studios". When they closed the animation division, I was devastated.
