Re: What were the original cities selected for the Disneyland Resort
There is also that nagging rumor that he did approach St. Louis and discussed it with Busch (yes, of Busch Gardens fame and, well, BEER) as a possible location. However, when Busch mentioned the excitement of selling their beer in Walt's park, Disney scoffed and went elsewhere--
--this is rumor and I tend to think of it that way. Busch was/is a major player with St. Louis, but it makes no sense that Walt would approach a biermiester to ask to be part...yet not plan on having alchohol in his plans.
So I tend to think this is not true. Something just heard about over the airwaves.
