Echo Lake is home to many popular attractions as well as some of the best restaurants in Disney's Hollywood Studios to eat at. It is surrounded by the American Idol Experience along with veteran attractions such as the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular and Star Tours. But, as many now know Hollywood Studios is about to get a major overhaul. With Mickey's Sorcerer Hat already being torn down and Star Wars Land going in. There is now a rumor swirling around that Echo Lake may be closed for demolition by March 2015. If this is going to happen the actual lake, Gertie the Dinosaur, and Min & Bill’s Dockside Diner (which are all opening day features of Disney-MGM Studios) would all be closed off and demolished.
Now there is just the simple question; Why? Well one very likely reason would be to clear land for the new Star Wars themed land planned for the park. But another reason may be, according to some rumors, that the area of the Star Wars Land would expand north and replace the Muppet-Vision area, but for you Muppet fans don't worry the removal of Echo Lake may save the Jim Henson creations from extinction.
Some rumors have claimed that the original Superstar Television Theater and ABC Sound Studio could be the next items to go come Summer 2015.
