    Re: Water Park at Disneyland Resort

    Why can't backstage and parking be underground?

    I would imagine California earthquake codes make it prohibitively difficult to accommodate large parking areas. They would need a lot of levels of parking, because I don't think they can manage with only one level.

    Fine, put a layer of CM parking with guest parking a floor below that.

    That's how Hollywood and Highland shopping center works.

    Re: Water Park at Disneyland Resort

    Ok, this question was bugging me so much that I had to make an account. I dont think Disney will make a Water Park but who knows. I have been to Disneyland a billion times.... and I know it inside out. My dad works down there and my mom was born there... ETC.

    On topic now....

    The weather in Anaheim is very unpredicatable and I dont think it is worth it. Which means Disney just wasting their.

    If there was a waterpark... it would be placed on the Over flow parking and Strawberry fields.. which I believe is next to the old and original Castle Hotel thing? Correct me if I am wrong.

    So thats a reason why they wouldn't.

    I really think Disneyland has the land available, and the ideas ready, so they should definitely make a water park!

    About 20 minutes away is a really humongous water park called the beach. And it costs a LOT less for someone to go there than it would to go to a Disney water park. I wouldn't blame Disney for backing down from that competition.

    If memory serves me right, back in the 80s there was a water park fairly close to Anaheim called Wild Wild Wet. It's not there anymore, which if you think about it might be a reason why Disney hasn't built any water parks in Southern California.

    I can see what you are trying to say with that, but Wild Rivers and Soak City are very popular water parks. Sure, many would rather spend a day at the beach (it's free, no chlorine, bring your own lunch) but it's not like water parks in CA are suffering with the close proximity to the beach.

    Disney would easily blow the other water parks around out of the water, even if they used half of their artistic talent.

    Are you sure about that? Not everyone needs a 90 degree day to attend a water park. They also have an interesting concept called heated pools that make the experience more enjoyable when it gets a bit chilly.

    I can see a day/night schedule Easter through Labor Day and a 10-5 schedule Labor Day through New Years. Close from January through Easter for rehab. and new construction.

    Thank you Key....

    Also another reason is Disneys California Adventures is not bringing in much of a profit.... and until it does Disney probably wont make one... or even if it does they might not even make one at all.

    Water parks lose their appeal to anyone over 30. You realize it's like sharing a bath with all these people. You see diapers. You decide you're too "old" for it when the whole idea starts grossing you out.
