Hello Disney lovers. Today’s post revolves around the current theme we are on of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I read some interesting information regarding the possible new Cars Land that may be coming to Walt Disney World very soon. The following information comes from the Yahoo! Group disneyworlddreams which I belong to. Please find the information below along with my commentary on the news item:


A Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI) executive who was in upper leadership with Disneyland’s Cars Land project has been moved to Florida, adding even more fuel to the rumor that Cars Land may be coming to Walt Disney World. Kathy Mangum, a Co-Creative executive of Cars Land and a vice president at WDI, is now Executive Producer, overseeing all attraction and resort design at Walt Disney World.

Disney isn’t ready to announce anything just yet, as evidenced by the statement given by WDI spokesman Diego Parras. He says Mangum’s move is a natural progression for her now that Cars Land is complete and that her reassignment is not tied to any new projects. “Disney World is our biggest portfolio and, with everything that we have going on, we just simply need more resources.”

Disneyland has been seeing record attendance numbers due to the popularity of Cars Land at their Disney California Adventure park. The park previously only accounted for 25 percent of the attendance at the Disneyland Resort, but is now drawing 50 percent of the crowds.

I find this piece of news very telling. The fact that this WDI executive has been moved from California to Florida tells me that it is all but a sure thing that Cars Land will be coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which is located in Walt Disney World. Quite frankly, I think that Disney’s Hollywood Studios needs a tune up (Pardon the obvious pun). There has not been any real changes at Disney’s Hollywood Studios other than the new edition to Star Tours with the expanded adventures. As much as I hate to say it, I think they should take out Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show and put in Cars Land. In my opinion, I feel this will appeal to younger guests which is I think always a good idea. What do you think of this latest news regarding the executive being relocated to Walt Disney World from Disneyland? Do you think it’s a sign that Cars Land will be moving into Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World? Why or why not?
