Where should Disney go next?

Where should the next theme park be? (Sorry; I'm into these polls now)

Are you talking hotel or theme park? I could see a theme park in Australia, but certainly not in the Rockies.

If they built a theme park in South America... say... um... Brazil..... then we could avoid a lot of the "flag groups" that are occasionally seen as a problem to WDW visitors.

Yeah, I was assuming theme park, so I may need to change my vote!

Indeed. They can have their very own theme park.

Maybe we can build one for the Pop Warner kids too! laugh

I voted Rockies. Why? No idea. Sounds closer than Australia...

I voted Australia, looks like a popular vote 2. Walt was very patriotic so America should have the most parks, and since China is getting #2 it's time for a new U.S. Destination.

Disney's Heartland! Located Right here in Indianapolis IN. Why here you ask? (Besides the obvious...)

1. Location - Indianapolis is at the populous center of the US, we are a 1 drive for 75% of America.

2. Land - Land is affordable and available just down 70 from our Airport

3. Amenities - Have I mentioned the New Airport on 70 yet? And hotels because a few times a year we have some races here, (You know the kind of race Disney attractions are named after?) and you have to stick all those people somewhere, the rest of the time all those rooms are fairly easy to get.

4. Weather... I know you thinking he's crazy, and only my therapist knows for sure but hear me out. What would you think of Skiing with Mickey? Having a snowball fight with Goofy? A horse drawn carriage ride threw snow covered trees? Try a Toboggan ride. Or sipping hot chocolate at a Christmas celebration that really looks and feels like Christmas? Winter in Indy is actually very mild with Temps around the 30's and more green winter days then white ones. When it dose snow here it's usually only a few inches and most streets are clear by noon. The parks can be easily designed for these conditions with a good mix of indoor attractions to balance out the 3 cold months.

5. No Competition - It's not like Disney would be worried about such things but Indy is one of the largest cities in the Midwest to not have some sort of Six flags style park on it's door step. This would insure plenty of local patrons to fill in with the out of town clientele.

6. Events - Like the Indy 500, Brickyard, Final 4, Star Wars and many others bring in large groups of out of towners all year long, and what better way to round out a race or a weekend of dressing like a storm trooper than to go to Disney?

My pioint is't why Disney should build a park here, It's why haven't they already.

There's actually a recurring urban legend in North Texas about us getting a Disney Park here. We have warm weather and lots of space, but I think it's just something land speculators like to drum up periodically. Although I think I can make a better case for here than Indianapolis.

I think that Indy was tarnished with the same brush that St. Louis did when they botched Disney World! I'm not sure they're afraid of competition anyway. Even if there are no other parks there, there will be once there's a Disney Park there.

I voted for Hawaii; they're already building DVC there, and since it's already a huge vacation destination, people would have ample reason to "try out a new Disney park" there.

Though the Indy and North Texas options are intriguing, too. As for Indy, they've got Disney parks in cold places (Paris!), so why not in Indy? Probably wouldn't be too much of a "destination" to get away from winter weather, but it could be a great place to go for the southern US to get away from the summer heat!

hawaii seems like a waste. plenty to do there already, who needs a theme park. theme parks belong in places with big expanses of cheap flat land!

That's a very good point.

The problem with doing it in Hawai'i would be getting approval. I don't see it happening since local government are very discerning with who builds what on that land.

That's another good point. Hawaii is big on maintaining their pristine appearance, they would probably be very reluctant to put up any giant eyesores, even well themed ones.
