Major Disney Avenue Update: Disney's Hollywood Studios

By Keith Mahne

Big news is coming out of Disney's Hollywood Studios today. It seems some HIGH profile Disney executives were seen walking around the park. Continue after the page break for more on this developing story...

Disney executives seen inside Hollywood studios include WDI Chief Creative Executive - Bruce Vaughn, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts - Tom Staggs, Disney's Hollywood Studios VP - Dan Cockerell, WDI VP - Kathy Mangum, Walt Disney World President - George Kalogridis, and perhaps most the most popular, John Lasseter - Principal Creative Advisor, Walt Disney Imagineering.

We can now definitely assume that a much needed and MAJOR Pixar related attraction is coming to Hollywood Studios. My guess is on either Cars Land or the rumored Monsters Inc. roller coaster.

One other important piece of information is that permit paperwork has been filed simply titled, 'Project 3 - DHS Soundstage 1 Renovation.' The permits do not give away any details, other than the expiration date of 9/30/2016, and that contractor Whiting Turner will be involved in the project. That particular contractor has been involved with Disney attractions in the past, and a long expiration date for the permit suggests something on a large scale is about to take shape. Stay tuned to Disney Avenue for more...


  1. So happy to be hearing this! This park has been needing some major TLC.
