    Disneyland Westcot

    Sorry for the double but I was wonder about somthing. I saw this old diagram of what the origial expansions were for the Westcot park. It sounds interesting and I definatly would of prefered Westcot than DCA. But thats not the issue. The reason I am posting is I want to know the story behind Westcot, and why it never came to be.
    Heres a link to the designs of the (origional) plans for The Disneyland Resort. http://rotocat.tripod.com/westcot.htm I guess they always had the plan for a west themed park because it says the "three" new hotels that were planned were going to be themed after landmarks in the west.

    Major budget cuts is the only reason.

    Re: Disneyland Westcot

    I started a similar thread like this on another board and the information that i gathered from it was money was the main reason. The budget that was requested for the expansion was over $3 billion. The other reason was Paul Pressler was the president then and he thought WestCot would not be successful. The last reason i know of is that the neighbors around Disneyland were not to happy because they thought it would create to much noise and traffic. If and when Disneyland gets a third park i so hope that it will be WestCot

    I don't think he feels stupid, unless Stupid is his dog.

    He might be Stupid though... although if he is Stupid, then I guess he would probably also feel Stupid... I wouldn't know either way and I don't feel like finding out.

    Wait... What am I talking about?
