    Official Disney cancelled park concepts?

    This is NOT a "what's youre idea for a new Disney park" thread.

    This is more of a "do we know of any parks once planned by Disney that never made it off the drawing board"?

    I'm only aware of the boutique park at WDW, a version of DisneySea in Long Beach CA, WestCot, and Disney's America.

    But I wonder if there are more...considering that both WDW and DLR seem to develop new rumors by and by (every few years or so) regarding adding a new gate. And considering that DLR has a huge land mass for a third park, I wonder if Imagineers have a huge vault (or dumpster) of new park concepts that theyve been toying around with.

    Where do you think we can find them?

    I have no idea if this is true but when I was growing up (around 12 or 13) Disney was rumoured to be looking at many acres of farm land in the suburbs of Vancouver for a major Disney resort in Canada. (I suspect that it was just a rumour cause I can't see them wanting one that "close" to the Anaheim resort.)

    When nothing came of it the rumour then switched to that the area Disney was looking at was too close to the base that has the radio transmitter for Canada's Pacific Fleet and the military nixed it.

    Again, just a rumour but one I would have been happy with being true. As much as I love DLR it'd be cheaper to stay close to home and still enjoy Disney once and a while.

    Tokyo MGM Studios and a Disneyland Resort POTC Water Park. Presumably there was a definite plan of some sort for a DLR third gate considering Disney launched a website for it shortly after DCA opened.

    About seven years ago, I remember reading on another site that Disney was planning a fifth gate to WDW entitled "Iron Kingdom" that would have been themed to Villains. Some of the rumored attractions included Jafar's Cave of Wonders, which would have been themed like IJA, and a Chernabog Roller Coaster.

    Re: Official Disney cancelled park concepts?

    Does it have to be a theme park? I recall that a mini themed area would be built where the Burbank Media Center is. It was supposed to have a few attractions, plus restaurants and stores. I would hope restrooms were included in original plans. I think Eisner was in his first year, and his roll in this decision has been mentioned elsewhere but I've forgotten the site. The plans were never begun and the Media Center became a reality.
