WDW Disney Hollywood Studios Backlot Tour Will Close Sept 27, Pixar Place Expansion Likely Coming

If you follow me on the D&M Facebook page you may have seen the news announced by Tom Corless on WDW News Today, which was confirmed to Disney Hollywood Studios cast members yesterday afternoon: the Studio Backlot Tour at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will close on September 27th, 2014.

According to Tom "work is set to begin on a third track for Toy Story Midway Mania inside of that building" and the area surrounding Soundstage 1 will likely be used for the rest of a large-scale PIXAR Place expansion. Although some of you might miss the Studio Tour all the question now is: what would they put instead of the Backlot Tour and Tom thinks that a Toy Story Playland like the one at DLP Walt Disney Studios and Hong Kong Disneyland which include RC Racer, Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin, and the Toy Soldier Parachute Drop should . But there will be more room available so it will be interested to see if the remaining space would be used for a Cars Land or the inverted coaster Monsters Inc. attractions.

I kinda enjoyed the Studio tour; it wasn't among the all time best Disney attractions, but it was fun and a nice opportunity to rest your legs.

Sure, it was outdated, but it could be updated and kept, after all, it was one of the only attractions that made Disney Hollywood Studios a Studio park, without the Studio Tour, it will become just a generic park.
