It's a small world after all—so small that Disney World is making some serious cuts. ft;">Disney World's Hollywood Studios theme park is saying goodbye to a handful of its iconic attractions come May 2, according to an announcement on the Disney park's blog. 

The closures come as a result of plans to unveil two new lands within the park, including Toy Story Land and a Star Wars-themed land. ft;">Which go-to spots no longer make the cut? To start, the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show is getting the boot after more than ten years inside the studios. 

A staple show of the park since it's creation in 2005, the 40-minute performance walks audience members through the process of bringing death-defying stunts to life and cutting them together for the silver screen.

This shutdown follows a series of closures to hit the park since 2014. 

One of the studio's original rides, the Backlot Tour, took its final trip in September while the American Idol Experience—an attraction that allowed visitors to perform like a contestant on the famous Fox show—was replaced by a Frozen-themed singalong in July 2014.

While the news may be devastating to life-long visitors, the planned successors don't sound too shabby. 

For the future Toy Story Land, "Andy's backyard will come to life and the famous little green aliens from the movie will take you for a spin in their very own flying saucers," the post said. Watch out, Rock n' Roller Coaster—a Slinky Dog-inspired thrill ride is also in the works.  

As for Star Wars fans, the themed land is planned to give guests a fully immersive experience into a galaxy far, far away, including "a customized secret mission on the Millennium Falcon."

While the announcement marks a difficult loss, there's nothing like a simulated stroll inside the world of Toy Story to ease the pain.
