  1. Hollywood studios in florida is not a part of this deal as just the studios of MGM, which never went out of business, was bought. Disney owns HS outright.

    1. Disney’s Hollywood Studios hasn’t been know as MGM Studios for at least 15 years. Since the closure of The Great Movie Ride, I don’t think there are any licenses used in HS that fall under the MGM catalog of movies (no major attractions, anyway). But even if there are, I would not be surprised if Disney were allowed to continue to renew them much like Universal is allowed to keep the Marvel license in their Orlando park.
