During the late 1980s (even before the original series was cancelled) and early 1990s (prior to the TV movie being produced), the Walt Disney Company (the people who own Disneyland) were on a buying frenzy and bought things like the American Broadcasting Company, ESPN, and others. Disney attempted to buy the rights to Doctor Who and its video library. Had Disney been sold the rights, they would have set up a walk-through exhibition of what it's like inside a TARDIS at Tomorrowland. They even planned that, when the need came, they would announce who the next Doctor would be at Disneyland during a press conference at Tommorowland (rather then at the BBC news studios like the BBC did).
