    Would you trade the anaheim angels and ducks for two more disney parks?

    I read a story on micechat or some where else that the Angels might move to the city of Industry when the lease ends in the near future. So I started to think what would The city of Anaheim do if the Angels left town with a baseball park but know team. Lease it to Disney. Disney could build two parks on that piece of land.and just for fun lets throw in the Honda center where Disney could build a couple more hotels. what are your thoughts

    I think that land becoming Disney's is a very real possiblity. Not for 2 parks, but for 1. The Pond will probably get parking garages and the guests will take future transit from there with the ARTIC passengers to the parks.

    Not being a sports fan, I'm all for leveling all sports venues in the US and turning them into theme parks.

    No third or fourth theme parks.

    1. A subway station.

    2. The world's largest and most beautiful parking garage & an employee lot.

    3. A peripheral greenbelt & a private, drought-tolerant Disney arboretum.

    4. A beautiful, moderately priced Disney resort designed by Robert A. M. Stern's group.
    (For inspiration, see but don't copy Paris Disneyland's Hotel Cheyenne. And see the Mission Inn in Riverside, The University of San Diego, and USC's new film school building.)

    5. A year-round, mostly indoor water park, possibly Marvel themed with some exclusive hours during less crowded times and even one day a week--Wednesday--exclusively for Disney hotel guests, Club 33 members, & Premium AP holders. Start charging 1K for Premium APs so they can subsidize new attractions
    and increase the bonuses for Thomas Staggs. That is, afterall, the ultimate purpose of
    Eisner-Wells/Eisner/post-Eisner American capitalism.


    6. Two monorail lines going into each of the parks.

    In a heartbeat. They could build a statue of Vernon Wells eating a cheeseburger somewhere in back as a memorial.

    There is room for both this and another park on all that property.

    Disney’s parks are always well landscaped so there is no need for a greenbelt. It seems like it would just be a waste of land that could be used for public enjoyment of more rides and attractions.

    I think Disney should acquire some of the fleebags across the street from Disneyland and raze those as an area to put up the moderately priced resort.

    This, definitely.
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    If its Resorts we're talking about creating in this proposed Angel stadium area, demolish the Grand California hotel that encroaches on DCA Real Estate and and utilize that space for expansion. (highly unrealistic but would widen the Grizzly theme, oh dang, Cloned Grizzly Gultch anyone) And rebuild a bigger "Grand California" hotel there.

    Regarding this:
    The Ramada Maingate has just announced it expanded its plans for and will be starting a big construction project. This indicates that that property has at least 25 years left if it's leased from Disney or somone else. The front of the property, the biggest on the Harbor side of the block, will get a flat front 4 story building. That is the property that is directly west of Disney's Pumba lot and lines about half the western edge of that parkiing lot.

    More realistic is that they demolish DCA to expand the high rent hotel. That would be worth more not that either will happen.

    Here's where the common sense side comes in:

    Disneyland bought the Angels and Ducks over a decade ago because they wanted the Anaheim area to be a tourist destination area that wasn't just few day stayover for a theme park. Exactly why they built DCA too, so people will spend more of their money in Anaheim because of the multiude of options. I doubt the Disneyland resort is looking to limit their options in the OC by pushing away the sports franchises.

    Makes little sense.
