I just kind of assumed they were testing it out on Midway Mania because it's got to have the most brutal line in the entire Resort. If they're really considering a third/fourth track, it could always just be a temporary solution to keep guests a) happily not in line and b) happily buying things while they're not in line.
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

^The longest line in Walt Disney World is typically for meeting Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall in the Magic Kingdom. Toy Story Mania and Soarin' are both up there in the higher-wait time echelon with them, but you can seriously see waits of 180 minutes and more for the princess meet & greet.

^ So I guess it makes sense that these are the exact three attraction they've done some sort of recent queue testing on. Personally, I give Disney a lot of credit for trying something different to help manage queue wait times.

^Agreed. Between this and the Dumbo "queue," it's nice to see them trying new things. Wait times are always the #1 complaint of any theme park.

The horror! I don't know how Disney will survive! Paint chips, crumbs, broken USB ports, the end is definitely near. Next thing you know, they'll be getting rid of their 100% factual, absolutely historical and authentic cultural rides for rides people actually want! ;)

Sorcerer's Hat to be removed from Disney's Hollywood Studios

Breaking Theme World news. For the past 13 years, it has served as the icon on Disney's Hollywood Studios. This view is soon to disappear into history:

Disney Spokesman Bryan Malenius just confirmed to Local 6 the park plans to reimagine the park's central plaza by removing the Sorcerer's Hat in early 2015. That means we may have a view like this again:

Removing the hat will restore the careful perspective to Hollywood Boulevard. The hat debuted in September 2001 as part of the "100 Years of Magic" celebration that marked Walt's 100th birthday. Originally, it was to be temporary. But temporary lasts a long time at Disney.

That's not the only change. Disney's walkthrough attraction "The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow" will be closing on Nov. 6.

The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow debuted in December 2012 with a lot of special effects, and not a lot of substance. Still, kids loved seeing Jack Sparrow in person.

Disney describes it this way: "State-of-the-art technology brings the swashbuckling world of Captain Jack, from an eerie treasure cove to an epic ship-to-ship battle. The attraction is included with theme park admission, located in Soundstage 4."

The effects are widely believed to have been a test for Shanghai Disneyland's Pirates attraction. It replaced a walkthrough Narnia Exhibit.

Just weeks ago, Disney closed the iconic Backlot Studio Tram Tour. These closings all point to big changes coming soon.

"Work continues on bringing new experiences to life at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and we look forward to sharing more information at a later date," Disney officials said.
