We previously reported that the future of the Great Movie Ride was in question. Per permits obtained by Blog Mickey, it appears that the Great Movie Ride at Hollywood Studios will be closing to make room for “DHS Project M.” We also saw this tweet on Twitter:
Hearing Great Movie Ride will close for a Mickey attraction.
Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and by Summer 2018. pic.twitter.com/agDejv5oVR

So what does “DHS Project M” mean? From what we are hearing, this will be a new Mickey Mouse-themed ride. So, “DHS” refers to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and “Project M” means Project Mickey Ride? A Mickey-themed ride would be a first for any of the Disney Parks.
As you can see on copies of the permit below, the exact address of the Great Movie Ride is listed. Also important to point out is the completion date of October 31, 2019. It’s hard to be sure if this date is the projected opening day of this new attraction or just the completion date of work detailed in this permit.
Of course, nothing is official until Disney confirms it. Hopefully, with D23 Expo coming up this weekend, we will receive the official word one way or another. With rumors of the Great Movie Ride closing, talk about a Mickey-themed ride coming, and now a permit filed, I’d expect to see this rumor come to fruition.
