Disney Not Renewing Great Movie Ride Sponsorship Deal with TCM ; Attraction to Close

If they were smart, they would lower the ticket price to $60 for a limited time. They could make a whole brand out of it, and with that they could make their money lost with branded merchandise as Disney usually does with any of their "celebrations".
If they lower the cost they would actually increase the number of people that attend and are potentially unhappy. Can you imagine 3 hour waits for 4 rides? They simply can't lower the price even if they feel it's justified.

What can they do? If they lower the price, they increase ticket sales and money earned, but they make guests unhappy. If they don't, they make less money, decrease ticket sales, and make the guests who do buy tickets unhappy. If only they had closed things in a more orderly schedule so that for every closed attraction, one would open.

It could go the other way too.. after Star Wars, they see huge increase in visitors.. and for the big $$$ guys of Disney.. would pat their backs and say "well good enough, lets leave everything else as it is for 10 years!"
THAT is exactly what would happen...when did Disney ever finish up a project with a fully realised phase II? like never... that is why the World Showcase was never completed...Attractions never built...Western River Expedition, Roger Rabbit's Toontown... If they don't build it the first time, phase II will not happen... they may build something else, but it won't follow the plan or be nearly as ambitious...

Sunset Blvd. Arguably.

Brilliant, isn't it?

I guess they figure if TSL opens in May 2018 that it will take up the slack ...

They're in a bad place if a ride goes down for the day or if they end up closing TSMM right before the land behind it opens (if they need to close it).

What are they thinking? How could this makeover go so wrong?
This is what I've been saying since this was specified as a legitimate rumor. DHS is going to have an enormous problem. It already does not have much to do. Now GMR is being taken off line, and at some point TSMM will have to close for a little while for toy story land. Imagine Tower or Rockin Rollercoaster goes down for a day (or worse?) You'll have a park with nothing to do.

That's not even getting into the fact that Star Wars Land is going to flood a small park that is not prepared for it.

That is why they should fast track the rumored rat and coco. At least they will be in proximity from the rumored gondola.

My best guess is that it will 'set the table' for the rest of the park. Sort of the way SSE did for EC. Second possibility is that they intend to grow a themed land around it. A good example could be Mission Breakout DCA.

WDW1974 has mentioned that there are still active plans to bring Marvel stuff (whatever they are allowed in Florida) to DHS at some point. Don't know if that is on the table or any timeframe, perhaps other insiders might confirm.
I'd imagine that it's only a matter of time until ToT gets the same Guardians treatment as California.
