    Disney Park in Texas????

    Hello, I'm new to Micechat. Like everyone here I'm a huge Disney fan. I'm originally from California but I recently moved to Texas due to some unfortunate inccidents. I've heard from my mother and her friend that they "might" build a Disney park here. I asked them where they heard this but they ignore me. I think they're just messing with me because I want to be near a Disney park like I was back in California. I need some back up so does anybody know if this is true????

    I don't believe I heard anything. It would certainly be stupid of Disney to do that. It would only pull away visitors from the other two resorts. Plus, you must remember that Texas is right in the heart of tornado alley, I don't believe they would want to build a theme park right in the centre of it.

    I've seen this pop up a couple of times. usually with Texas being the new home of Disney's America and construction to get underway real soon as Disney secretly bought the land (like in Florida). However, this is on sites tha aren't exactly what I would call credible.

    Haha, are you kidding me? Imagine trying to stick Pirates of the Caribbean there...they'd have to PC it down to barely anything being left.

    They're probably just messing with you.

    Mathius makes very good points, too.

    By the way, welcome to the boards!

    If that happens, I'd be shocked. I don't know what purpose doing that would serve, quite frankly.

    If they build a disneyland in texas, this is a sure sign that the apocolypse is near
    5.6 miles away from the entrance of POTC!

    Why would the PC it down for Texas? If anything they would just give the pirates some assult rifles, budwiser, and gas guzzeling giant suvs. This is Texas after all.

    Re: Disney Park in Texas????

    This rumor has been around for awhile. Apparantly Disney has purchased land in areas of Texas such as near Dallas and near Houston. Whether these reports are true or not, can't tell. But they have been around forever. There even was (not sure if its still around) a webpage devoted to Disney Texas with info and evidence.

    The thing is, while California is hot in summertime, Texas is HOT. You also have issues of Tornados/Hurricanes being costly to the park. AstroWorld was hit hard by the last Hurricane and they decided to just scrap it and sell the property I believe. I don't see Disney wanting to do that.

    Agree with you there!

    Frankly, I think Texans are too busy with their sports-fanatic world there.

    Conservative Republicans.

    And I wasn't referring to the guns and drinking, but any sexualized references.

    UGH! AGH! ERG!

    What the heck? I'm Texan! I don't drink, no SUV, never shot a rifle, I could care less if an AA girl gets raped, and I'm not one to be considered a "sports fanfatic". C'mon, that's stereotyping!


    And you think they won't build it because of tornados? Um, hello? Florida=Hurricanes, California=Earthquakes...........

    I like the idea. Then, I could finally be an AP holder..........

    Disney World is inland, making it kinda hard to be affected by hurricanes. And california earthquakes are few and far between, not posing any real threat, especially with new building codes and methods.

    However, we know that Houston is not inland enough to be safe from Hurricanes, and the city generally floods every few years from rain storms, then Tornados pop up often without warning and are hard to plan for.
