With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge now fully open, and the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railroad attraction just weeks away, the future of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as far as we know, seems to be complete- at least, for now. However, new rumors point to even more dramatic changes heading to the park in the coming years. We can only hope they’re true.
After years of whispers and gossiping regarding Monsters, Inc. and the Incredibles, it looks like Disney has finally decided to move forward with some type of new attraction based on these and other Pixar franchises. According to rumor and news site, Screamscape, Disney may be planning to have a Pixar Place that would extend from the former entrance of Toy Story Mania past the entrance of Toy Story Land and up through Animation Courtyard covering all of Mickey Avenue. This would include the old Pixar-themed area that most recently was used as a temporary Incredibles area.
As per Screamscape and other rumors, Pixar Place would include other standalone attractions themed to various Pixar movies. This would be similar to Pixar Pier at Disney’s California Adventure.
One franchise that is included in this rumored Pixar land for Hollywood Studios is Cars. A smaller, scaled down version of Radiator Springs has been included in the rumored expansion. Even if it’s smaller, that’s great news! Considering, all we have at Disney World that even compares is the Cars area of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. The signature ride in California Adventure’s Cars Land, Radiator Springs Racers, uses a nearly identical ride system as Test Track, but in dual, racing-style layout. It seems like a seamless transition to put the ride in Florida.
At the end of the day, these are just rumors and Disney has yet to confirm or speak on the matter. Be sure to follow The Kingdom Insider, as we bring any details to you that might unfold.
