FYI: Disney’s Move to Rename Section of Park
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Disney-MGM Studios is changing its name to‘s , 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,” saidpresident Meg Crofton in a statement.
“As a park all about entertainment, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will deliver like never before. Now we can say thatis 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 😉
