    Not sure why you mention The Wizard of Oz, but I would guess the other two are from deals that predate their acquisition by Disney/

    Re: Why doesn't Disney Have a SuperResort in Vegas?

    Are we sticking the subject in the wrong area though? Disney would fail in Las Vegas as a casino or resort, but what about a museum? Las Vegas and Nevada in general is absolutely RICH in the history of the Atomic Age. I went to their National Atomic Testing Museum is is off the strip but not too far away. In fact, its only a couple of blocks off the strip itself if I recall. The museum was very interesting, and some of their rooms were themed to scaled down fallout shelters and science laboratories. Can you imagine how immersive such an experience could be if Disney took over? Heck, wasn't the original concept of Tomorrowland based around the love of the Atomic Age at the time?

    So perhaps Disney could not become a resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, but more of an Atomic Museum celebrating the history of the atom and nuclear science in one of the states most iconic for it. Why, they could even play 'Miracles from Molecules' somewhere in there to make some people happy.

    I don't see Disney ever investing $$$ to build anything in Las Vegas. As other have pointed out, Vegas tried the family friendly thing before and it failed miserably. And even now there is nothing being built that's remotely kid friendly. Its all nightclubs, daytime pool parties with big name DJs, etc. Frankly Im always surprised at how many kids I see when I take a trip to Vegas because it just doesn't seem like there is very much for them, or as a family, to do.

    I think a lot of families in Vegas are on road trips and Vegas is a 1 or 2 day stop along the way. I know when I was a kid we went to Vegas every year, but it was always part of a road trip, we never stayed more then a couple days.

    There's some non-gaming entertainment of course, FEW arcades, roller coasters, aquarium, dolphins and lions, ...
    Disney casino, two words not fit for one another...unless they dove into the slot market with licensing. But even then... Tarnishing images of Snow White or Cinderella would be bad.

    They could always be branded with Disney Villains. Oogie Boogie comes to mind.

    Re: Why doesn't Disney Have a SuperResort in Vegas?

    I live in Las Vegas and I don't think Disney would stand a chance here.
    Many casinos have tried to add a more "family" element to their hotels, and they never work out. It is a mystery to me how Circus Circus Grand Slam Canyon is still open. MGM Grand used to have a theme park, but more often than not, it was empty. MGM Grand Adventures Theme Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia People might bring their kids here, but that isn't the appeal and it definitely isn't where the money is.

    The thing is, Las Vegas isn't a "resort" destination like Hawaii, California or Florida; it's a Hotel/Casino town. Therefore, Disney would have to get into the business of gaming, which is highly regulated, and they couldn't have a sports book because of their affiliation with sports teams. Successful casinos basically require a nightclub which comes with it's own set of difficulties, the moment someone got a shot of someone doing cocaine in a DISNEY night club, it's a publicity nightmare. I am also not sure they could keep up with the restaraunts here, not to say Disney isn't very good at food when they want to be, but we also do it big and very good here.

    Las Vegas is way to close to Anaheim and would take away from their business. If Disney builds a new park it will be another international location to further expand and enhance their brand.

    I agree Disney would not stand a chance here. This place went from being "family friendly" to "Whatever happens in Vegas.." blah blah blah I hate this slogan. Las Vegas has become a place to go to party. Kind of like how us Disney fans go to Disney Parks to escape reality, people go here to party and let loose.

    Also, I think Grand Slam Canyon is still around because it is indoors and people can enjoy it throughout the day, unlike the MGM theme park which was outdoors. Imagine being in an outdoor theme park during one of our heat waves. Forget about it!
