CEO of Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger, let slip at a press conference on Thursday that the Hollywood Studios theme park in Florida will be renamed. This will be the second time the park has taken a new name: visitors to the park pre-2008 will remember it as Disney-MGM Studios, when there were working production studios at the site. The revelation came as a 6-year-old girl questioned the CEO at the company’s annual shareholder meeting.

Disney have also said it will be bringing more Star Wars attractions to its parks. Read more: orlandosentinel.com
