    We are so getting a 3rd park!

    Grier also is involved in planning for a possible third Anaheim park.

    First talked about in 2000, Disney wants a “third gate” on a 75-acre parcel near Harbor Boulevard and Katella Avenue. The land has been used for little more than employee parking since the 2001 tourism downturn.

    Now that things are humming again—if not booming—the company is thinking about expansion.

    “What’s important for us is to focus on what’s (going to be there) for the next 50 years,” he said.

    Coming from Tokyo, where Grier was part of the masterplanning team, he has a grip on how the process works.

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

    “We probably have more ideas than we have room for,” Grier said.

    I'm SO happy! I don't really like the Wide World Of Sports idea, so I'm glad that part is only a rumor.

    Disney's Anaheim Adventure: A water park which will feature a raft ride down the Santa Ana River.

    I heard the new park was going to be themed to Toy Story.

    i hope we get something new and elegant that even Tokyo Disney can be jealous of. If the new park follows the awesomeness of the photo advertising that was released yesterday, we could get something very very nice!

    Re: We are so getting a 3rd park!

    How about a park with MORE THAN ONE THEME for a change??? How about an alterno-Disneyland that has the themes not covered in our original park? A frozen winter land, an underwater land, a scary villains land, etc? There are far too many one-concept parks in the chain, and they end up being 1/2-day parks. Build something that will keep people busy for an entire day for a change.

    But yeah, the "3rd gate" has been in this "planning stage" since before Disney bought the Fushijie strawberry farm nearly 10 years ago.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I just can't see spending the money and resources until DCA improves.

    I think what is really needed, is a water park. Another creatively themed Disney water park would draw many, many guests to the DLR, and open it up to a whole new crowd of customers. If not that, They just need to be creative, and avoid putting in something dumb like another California Adventure, or MGM Studios.

    This could be an option, since our biggest local water park is closing. It would certainly draw people out of the park during the summer. But would it be open year-round? I wouldn't want to go in January.
