    I will probally be labeled pessimistic..but I think TDA just has $$ on their mind. They are just think about all money a third park can generate.

    I agree DD, they should fix Tomorowland and DCA first. Fix whats broken first and then you can discuss a third park.

    "There’s no firm plan for the Anaheim land yet, he said, despite rumors of a Wide World of Sports-type complex. "

    Oh. My. God.
    I have heard a lot of ideas bandied about for a third gate--if indeed such a thing even happens before 2030--villians themed, Westcot, DisneySea, something alltogether original--but "Wide World of Sports" is easily the worst idea I've ever heard. I don't know about you, but with the massive corporization, shameless athletic bahavior, and outrageous salaries, I think modern sports is the last place I'll ever find magic in. I can just see it now: "DisneySportsBarLand": Come for the rides, stay for the wings."
    Forget 'Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln,' Samantha Brown is Disney's most sophisticated animatronic.

    One question, what rights does Disney have to Nightmare Before Christmas??? Would they be able to use that to build a Halloweentown from the movie? A Christmas overlay is an easy Christmastown away with that! Throw in a flume ride using Lock, Shocke and Barrel's tub that takes you through town and into Oogies lair through that big pipe! Possibilities are endless!

    I just hope they spend the money on it this time.
    I've always liked the idea of having the third park be all about Villians. There could be some great coasters with that theme alone and other great rides too.

    I too hope it's neither a water park or a sports complex type thing. I don't do water parks and well, sports complexes as a third Disney park? I don't think so. They already sold the two sports teams they owned for a limited time. What makes them think they can be successful in this?

    Don't mean to be rude if it looks like it. I just think the villains are too great to be limited to just one section of a park.
    It doesn't have to be one "land". Could be a whole park dedicated to villains.

    But I most agree on D Daddy on this. Honestly, Tomorrowland should be getting upgraded like every 10 years to keep up with the latest technologies, etc. Especially on the exterior look. Right now, it's kind of a mix between the old '98 bronze-y crap and some new stuff with Space Mountain being white again, etc.

    Q: If Wide World of Sports opens on the West Coast, will there be a HOOTERS?

    I think it's way too small for a major park and you'd have to buy out all that real estate to get more land.

    Thank you.

    Alright people, can you say water park (if anything at all?). I say, Disney don't waster your time on it, just fix DCA!
