FYI: Disney’s Move to Rename Section of Park

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Disney-MGM Studios is changing its name to Disney‘s Hollywood Studios, starting January 2008.

“The new name reflects how the park has grown from representing the golden age of movies to a celebration of the new entertainment that today’s Hollywood has to offer — in music, television, movies and theater,” said Walt Disney World Resort president Meg Crofton in a statement.

“As a park all about entertainment, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will deliver like never before. Now we can say that Hollywood is literally our middle name,” Crofton wrote.

The park opened May 1, 1989.

As a Disney-uber-consumer (I come from a born & bread Disney-saurus Rex family)… I thought this was an interesting tidbit.

MGM is a brand, yeah? Kinda interesting that they’re taking the not-so-Disney brand perspective of MGM and replacing it with Disney (their name, again– eat/sleep/dream of Disney is their ideal) Hollywood (the leader in world’s entertainment).

Anyway… just a minor thing I found interesting on this fine monday. Carry on 😉
