MGM is easy to say. I'm too lazy to say Hollywood Studios.

I'll still say MGM out of habit. In 10 years people will probably have no idea what I am talking about.

To me it's usually "the studios" as I don't consider MGM to have anything to do with Disney. So, DHS will be an easy enough switch.

Just like for me the "Tomorrowland Transit Authority" is still the "People Mover", Disney Hollywood Studios will be MGM forever in my heart.

I've called it either MGM or the studios so Disney Studios is the most likely. Disney Hollywood Studios seems like too much of a mouthful.

It's been MGM to us since DH and I first visited in 1993 on our honeymoon. It'll be so hard to make the change.

I will probably still call it MGM. My child will be correcting me in 10 years!

It will probably be a long time (if ever) before we stop going to "MGM";)

I would have called it DHS, but coming from Maine originally, its sounds too much like the dept. of human services, so I changed my mind and stayed with what I have always called it, "the studios". However I voted disney studios.

MGM...I think it's dumb that they changed the name. They should focus their energy on more important things, like new rides!!!:)

It will always be MGM for us.

I voted for 'Disney Studios' though we already refer to it as simply "The Studios". Tricky to break the MGM habit...

Although I like Disney Hollywood Studios, I like plain, simple, Disney Studios the best.

Disney has had trouble with MGM from the beginning regarding contractual issues. The merger with Pixar opens an entirely new realm of opportunity for this park, as well as a graceful way to break ties with MGM.

I think that the name, "Disney Hollywood Studios," is temporary, anyway. I'd bet that the park will get a huge Pixar makeover as soon as they can take their focus off of the gigantic $1B+ re-build of Disney's California Adventure. My guess is we'll see "Disney-Pixar Studios" in about 6 or 7 years. :twocents:

I still call the TTA the Wedway People Mover, so I'm afraid I will always call it MGM.

I voted MGM, but I will try to learn the new name, but I have a feeling it will always be MGM to me.

I have already caught myself referring to it as the disney studios. My DW still calls it MGM and will propbably always referr to it as such.

How about Pixar's High School Musical Land? Mileyworld?

It will always be MGM to me. Too many years of calling it that name to relearn a new name now.

I voted MGM just because you know the old saying, "It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks!";) However, I will do my best to call it by its correct name!:mickey:

It will definitely be MGM for a long time to come. :mickey:

I too am used to saying MGM but I try to just say studios now. I really tried last trip to call it studios.

Going to have to say MGM it will take a while to break the habit :blush:

I voted for Disney Califorinia Studio, because that's going to be it's name.

ACTUALLY, I suspest I'll probably refer to it as "The Studios", much as today, but that wasn't an option. I'll bet the busses will still say "Studios".

Just like for me the "Tomorrowland Transit Authority" is still the "People Mover", Disney Hollywood Studios will be MGM forever in my heart.

I've gotta agree. I stick with the old names until nobody knows what I'm talking about. Old habits die hard! :mickey:

10 years from now on a "Funniest things you've heard at Disney" post, someone will be making fun of having overheard me somewhere saying "tomorrow we are going to MGM" just like the people who still refer to the MK as Disney World.

Honestly, I'll probably end up calling it whatever name the shuttle bus has lit up to designate the park. (Whether it reads "DHS" or "Hollywood Studios" or "Disney Hollywood Studios".)

I'm sure I'll slip up and say MGM for awhile, but I'll eventually get over it and use the correct name.

MGM.......what else???? :thedolls:

JerseyDad
12-27-2007, 06:20 PM
....MGM....because I'm from Jersey (and we do that here everytime they TRY to re-name something):down:

....MGM....because...change is bad...all change is Bad-Bad-Bad!!:rant:

....MGM...because we already own a bunch of collectible pins that say MGM!!!

Until all the original attractions are replaced, I will forever call it MGM Studios.

I am sure we will continue to call it MGM studios....old habits die hard. :-)

It'll be MGM forever with our family.......

My 5 y/o even calls TTA the People Mover.......he got that from me though.

I'll probably call it MGM out of habit, although sometimes I do call it the Studios. I agree that Disney Hollywood Studios is a mouthful.
