3rd Disneyland Resort Themepark A Go!

In an official press release, Disney execs announced that the fabled third Disneyland Resort theme park is a go! It’s been long known that Disney has been holding on to a piece of property off Harbor across from the Convention Center/Hilton main entrance. (They’ve disguised it as a parking lot for years, but it’s never actually open.)
The idea pitched? “DisneySea America”

For those not in the know, DisneySea is an amazing theme park in Japan. However, since we here in America don’t have the Tokyo Land Management Company funding 90% of Disney projects like they do in Japan, the idea is going to be a little different. They’re going with the water park idea we’ve long heard about. After all, we need more water parks right?…….. The budget has been rumored to be less than the original budget of Calif. Adv., which off the top of my head I remember to be about $500-800 million. That’s a relief! I mean, look at the quality that came from that park!!

Some of the themed rides they announced were a little surprising too. Alladin (oh yeah, the desert themed movie in a water park), Princess Cove (at least that might include Ariel), Mickey’s Water Clubhouse (original), Reef Landing (???) and Goofy’s Beach Party (apparently its a big beach on the wave pool where they host daily “Luaus”). Well…good thing they’re not doing FINDING NEMO!!! Frickin’ idiots.

The good news is they want to extend the monorail there too. They said they hope to work out a deal with the city of Anaheim to have the monorail stop at the local big-chain hotels too like it does in Florida. Between this, DCA being revamped and Jon’s other surprise, Disney doesn’t seem to be hurting for cash! Unless that’s why they keep firing my friends……bastards….
PS Thanks to Jon for letting me break this news. Usually he beats me to it.

    Cool that you made the paper… lame that they used the word "hoax". It was funny/a joke, not mean-spirited/a hoax. This was weak journalism on their part. It wreaks of making something into news.
