    I just love coming to the Mom's Panel. You provide great information. I am curious as to why they changed the name of MGM to Hollywood Studios.

    Hi Sharon, and thanks for the compliment!

    Because I couldn't possibly answer you any better, here is an explanation straight from the head of the 'World':

    "The new name reflects how the park has grown from representing the golden age of movies to a celebration of the new entertainment that today's Hollywood has to offer — in music, television, movies and theater," said Walt Disney World Resort President Meg Crofton in a statement.

    "As a park all about entertainment, Disney's Hollywood Studios will deliver like never before. Now we can say that Hollywood is literally our middle name," Crofton wrote.
