FRONT (Full Size):
Competition: For us consumers it's always a great thing. I only hope Universal can continue to push their numbers up and give Disney more reason to expand themselves.
With the work that's been done at MK over the past 3 years and now the work that's taking place at the AK and after the DHS I'm wondering if they got any plans in place for the Future world section at Epcot as it must be 10 years since Future World got a whole new attraction
exactly - work with GM on their version of driver less cars - make a "friendly" ride where the driver less cars take you around areas. Turn it into an actual testing ground. Let's get back to some future ideas...
Just spent the day at the park and we overheard some cast members talking that I.j. will close to make room a cars attraction. What are your thoughts regarding this. And does this make sense? I would think the backlot would make more sense

Most cast members would not be privy to such information (Remember, there are over 35,000 cast members so there's no way they'd be able to keep that many people quiet about future plans).
Anyway, my guess (and that's all it is) is that the Indiana Jones area could be turned into a Carsland-like attraction. The area behind that attraction is very open so it could be huge. The Backlot Express restaurant will be re-themed or removed, opening up even more space. The only problem is that Cars is a Pixar film, so having Pixar attractions split into two sections of the park could be an issue if the rumors about a Pixar land are true. They certainly will not be moving the Toy Story attraction (which is also being expanded as OTPN has reported).
As for the Backlot Tour and soon-to-be-announced removal of Lights Motor Action, this will almost certainly become a Star Wars themed area. However, there's a big issue and that's the whole Streets of America/Muppets section. They would have to remove all of that, but there have been rumors that that's exactly what would happen. If you combine the entire area of the current Star Tours all the way over to LMA and Backlot Tour, that would be a HUGE Star Wars land. But with 3 new movies coming over the next several years, it's very possible that could be the plan.
What does everyone else think?
To me I see backlot express and indian jones closing to become star wars land, muppets and streets of america won't be touched and the lights, motors, action and backlot tour area becoming cars land.
