Star Wars Whim

MGM Hollywood at Disney have had their old Movie based attractions pulled out to make way for more Star Wars rides. There was, until a couple of years ago a shop at the entrance that sold old Hollywood memorabilia. Where you could buy autographed photos of Clark Gable and The Marx Brothers, amongst many others.
Space is also being reserved for a Toy Story themed extravaganza. (See above.) Therefore, with all this building going on, there are only about four rides operating at this park at the moment. The Back Lot tour is gone as is the Hollywood boat ride through the different years of the golden era.
So if you are a big Star Wars fan and like Toy Story it is safe to say you will enjoy this park when it is ready. For me it will be a sad day and I predict this will turn out to be a big mistake. Disney is all about tradition and when you turn your back on such memories you are left with a whim and one that will fade with the passage of time. Like the American Idol studio in the park that closed. Thankfully.
