Walt Disney World Buries the Lead with First Glimpse of Alien Swirling Saucers

Today Walt Disney World showed us the latest art work for the Alien Swirling Saucers at Toy Story Land.

According to Disney –

Once the aliens have powered up their flying saucers, you’ll get to climb into a toy rocket and hang on as aliens lead the way on an interstellar romp set to an out-of-this-world beat. And if you’re really lucky, you just might get “chosen” by the claw!

The concept art for this attraction and the description by Disney does make it look like it could be a lot of fun.

I like what I’ve I’ve seen and heard about Toy Story Land.  The whole area looks amazing.  I’m really hoping it’ll be open or at least have some soft opening when I visit Walt Disney World this summer.

As much fun as the Aliens Swirling Saucers look, what was the big take away in today’s announcement in the Disney Parks Blog was this “little” announcement…

In response to questions we have been receiving, we also want to let fans know that the Disney’s Hollywood Studios name will remain the same for the foreseeable future since we are immersing our guests in a place where imagined worlds of Hollywood unfold around them from movies and music, to television and theater.

Rumors had been circulating recently that Disney had chosen “Disney Cinemagine Park” as the new name.  A lot of Disney fans raised our eyebrows and uttered the phrase “What the….??” This was a bad name…a really bad name.  This name was one of the series of bad names that were included in a guest survey that was conducted a few months ago.

I for one am happy with this decision, even if it might be a temporary decision.  I still believe that there is a strong possibility that the name of this park will change sometime in the future.  We can all admit that Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been a “studio” in name only.  There hasn’t been any real production going on for quite some time.  With the re-imagineering of the park coming with the addition Toy Story Land this summer and the much anticipated Galaxy’s Edge in 2019 a new name has been thought was coming.  I personally don’t believe that Disney’s Hollywood Studios will remain the name will stay for the “foreseeable future.”

The problem, in my opinion, with the rumored name ‘Disney Cinimagine Park” was it’s lameness.  ‘Cinimagine’ is not a word….and it’s a bad made up word at that.  The name is hard to say and hard to spell….and it means nothing.

I’m glad the name of the park is staying….at least for now.
