    Best Place for Next Disney Resort

    Where would the best place for the next Disney resort be? Within 50 miles of Chicago, Illinois? Within 50 miles of Dalls, Texas? Or some other metropolitan area?

    Chicago has too many negatives, weather-wise. Dallas is central-ish, but I really think it's too close to both DL & WDW to be viable, unless it was a resort based on totally different concepts.

    In your opinion, what are the issues with the weather in Chicago?

    I always thought Australia would be a great for a new Disney resort.

    Exactly. It wouldn't make sense for Disney to offer a seasonal park as another resort. They would want to maximize their earnings potential through a year-round resort.

    Another park/resort in North America is high unlikely. Around the world? Dubai, maybe?

    Maybe Hawaii, I mean I know they have Aulani, but expanding it into a park!

    Would not happen. Too much red tape and hoops to jump through with land acquisition and the native Hawaiian people.

    Re: Best Place for Next Disney Resort

    I think it would be tough to put a theme park like Disney in a state like Illinois because of the weather. There wouldn't be a realistic way to keep it open all year without some serious maintenance and outdoor ride closures. Not to mention the frigid cold in the winter. We have an amusement park in Denver and it closes two days after Halloween and doesn't reopen until mid-May for that very reason. You can't operate the rides in a snowstorm and it's not realistic to expect people to travel and walk around a Disney park in winter clothing. Not unless it's a Frozen themed park (sarcasm).

    Even Texas is a gamble because of the possibility of hurricanes and tornadoes. But, given the poll choices I would say a park in Texas makes a lot more sense. The weather is more consistent and is pretty warm throughout the year. Even in the winter the temps still stay around 50-60 degrees. It is pretty close to both Disneyland and WDW, but maybe it could be a different type of park. Instead of shoehorning Star Wars and Marvel into the existing parks, maybe do an Islands of Adventure type park dedicated just to those franchises and others that haven't made it into other Disney parks yet.


    As far as another international park goes, I am somewhat surprised Disney hasn't settled in Australia yet. I think part of the reason is the fact that a lot of Australian guests fly to California for weeks at a time to visit. Why give that kind of money up to spend millions building a park right in their own backyard?
    Having a park in or near the Middle East won't happen. That part of the world is too unstable and is often on travel advisories. Way too much of a gamble.

    Even with the instability in the middle east, Dubai is an option due to money. They are willing to spend stupid amounts of money to make things happen and wouldn't be surprised if they put up the financial risk for a Disney park. After Shanghai opens, Disney will be at a good place to stop building new resorts for a bit of time and they should focus on the current resorts and getting them up to speed or expanding where the need is.

    I understand what you are saying but Dubai is not Bagdad or Damascus. The amount of foreign investment pouring in there is staggering. Certainly no more of a risk for Disney to have a park there than in the middle of communist China.

    I could swear that I heard about them building a park in Dubai a few years ago. I could be wrong and I don't remember the source. I agree that there isn't a risk to putting a park there. It's probably one of, if not the safest place in the Middle East to build at the present time.
