Disney has today announced to Disney's Hollywood Studios cast members that the Studio Backlot Tour will be permanently closing on September 27 2014.
No information about what will replace the attraction has been announced, although the area has been rumored in the past to become home to a Cars Land and Pixar Land expansion, and more recently part of a possible Star Wars expansion.
Part of the exit to the Backlot Tour will soon be used for the relocated Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post.
The Studio Backlot Tour experience has been greatly reduced over the years since it debuted at the park as a major attraction. The most recent change saw the narrators replaced with a pre-recorded spiel.

Disney's upcoming movie release schedule should have rival studios worrying.
Variety senior editor Marc Graser tweeted out this photo showing Walt Disney Studios' film plans for the next two years and, as he notes, it is quite impressive.
The main reason Disney's film schedule is so strong is not only due to films being made in house, but also the company's dependence on movies from acquisitions over the last decade.

We’re kicking off Disney Blogs ’90s week with a quack. One of our favorite Disney Afternoon tv shows in the ’90s was DuckTales. And one of the most memorable (and adored) parts of the show was it’s amazing theme song. Scrooge McDuck and Huey, Dewey, and Louie travel to outer space, under the sea, and to the pyramids. They’re chased by a mummy, hit in the face with pastry, and, course, surrounded by gold coins in a literal money bin. So, naturally, we thought we’d try to recreate all of this awesome with real ducks. We like a challenge. And cute farm animals. It might not look exactly like the real thing (real ducks do not like wearing hats), we’re still pretty proud of the result.
So sit back, enjoy, and try not to smile.* We dare you:

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, one of Walt Disney’s earliest cartoon stars, has had a presence at Disney California Adventure park for the past couple of years, from those delightful rabbit ear hats to the Oswald ice cream sundaes at Clarabelle’s. Now, Oswald himself is set to come home to Disneyland Resort!
Oswald made his film debut September 5, 1927, in the cartoon short “Trolley Troubles.” Walt Disney went on to produce 26 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit shorts, before losing the rights to the character in 1928. It was that experience that inspired the creation of Mickey Mouse, and the rest as they say, is history. Oswald finally returned to the Disney family in 2006 and made his first Disney Parks appearance earlier this year at Tokyo DisneySea.
Later this month, you’ll finally be able to meet Oswald on Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure park. Just look for the lucky little rabbit strolling along the sunny side of the street, starting September 14!
