Disney’s Hollywood Studios is not getting a new name, at least not anytime soon.

The theme park’s name will remain as is, Disney said Wednesday, in response to recent rumors that a new name was on the horizon.

According to the rumors, Disney executives had settled on Cinemagine Park as the new name. It was one of the choices included on a survey that was sent to guests last year about possible new names for Hollywood Studios.

Fans who were not happy with the rumored choice can now breathe a sigh of relief.

“In response to questions we have been receiving, we also want to let fans know that Disney’s Hollywood Studios name will remain the same for the foreseeable future since we are immersing our guests in a place where imagined worlds of Hollywood unfold around theme from movies and music, to television and theater,” the company said in a blog post.

One of those imagined worlds is the upcoming 11-acre Toy Story Land, which will feature two new attractions.

Disney shared a new artist rendering of Alien Swirling Saucers as well as a description of the ride.

Riders will climb into a toy rocket guided by aliens in their flying saucers and embark on an “interstellar romp set to an out-of-this world beat.”

The new land will also feature a Slinky Dog coaster and a Woody’s Lunch Box, a quick-service eatery.

Toy Story Land is set to open this summer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
