    I really hope Disney decides against all of these names, they really are all quite horrible

    Disney Legends isn't too bad but doesn't fit. The rest.... o_O

    Like Disney Beyond Park, what does that even mean? Beyond what?

    Beyond good sense? ;)

    I agree that it is lame and some of them are both lame and hard to spell or pronounce.

    Disney Kaleidoscope Park for example, it might take a second to figure out how to pronounce it, yet alone how to spell it, it's like Disney just randomly flipped through a dictionary and picked words at random for a name of the park that is, right now, the physical incarnation of an "other" category

    Legends is the only one that's not completely insane.

    I kind of like Cinemagine just for the 20+ page threads about how to pronounce it.

    Let's give it a try: Sin-A-Magine, Cin-e-magine, Cinemag-ine. These are just a few ways that people could butcher the name.

    Those names are all terrible. A name change is coming but my money is on Hollywoodland, its timeless and easy to remember and not tacky. The frozen show already refers to the park as such.

    Well, maybe they will rename the resorts "Disney Bed" and the water parks "Disney Bath" and then it all fits together ;)

    :rotfl: DH just stopped calling it that this trip! And soon he'll have to get used to a new name... I suppose he'll call it DHS for 10 years first...

    Don't like any of the names. Hollywoodland or Hollywood Adventure would still be my picks.

    Cinemagic is for me the best (least bad) of the choices. Cinemagine ok but a bit over-"creative." Strictly my guesses of how people will interpret names:

    Legends = young people think "boring old-people stuff - lame"

    Storyverse = sounds too "kiddie"

    Beyond/XL = sounds like a Six Flags Hyper-Coaster park - and when it's not, loud cries of "LAME!"

    Kaleidoscope/Hyperia = (Linda Flynn-Fletcher voice): "What does that even mean?!" Plus the myriad misspellings would wreak havoc on the Dis.

    I think they need to go back to the drawing board.

    Legends is the only one that isn't too terrible.

    I think Disney Legends is ok. Disney's Hollywood Studios is still an option though. Also, Cinemagic is a major possibility as it was an attraction at the Walt Disney Studios park in Disneyland Paris that was a compilation of movies and was a must-do for most people. It recently closed this year and wasn't replaced by anything. The reason it closed might be because they are renaming Hollywood Studios to this?????

    Wow...those all suck out loud.

    I'm hoping for Hollywood Adventure or Hollywoodland.
