Disney CEO Bob Iger let the news slip Thursday but wouldn't announce what the park's new name will be.

The park is undergoing several changes, including the removal of the American Idol Experience and the iconic sorcerer's hat.

Bloggers predict a huge "Star Wars" and Pixar expansion at the park, although nothing is confirmed.

Disney also announced Thursday that a sequel to its blockbuster "Frozen" is in the works.  It's not known when "Frozen 2" will be released, however.

In addition, the eighth edition of the "Star Wars" franchise will arrive in movie theaters on May 26, 2017, Disney said.
