    Check out the map in this news article..

    The available land is about the size of Disneyland or DCA, but there wouldn't be much room for hotels or parking.

    It is known as the "Strawberry Field".

    Is it true it's going to be a water park?

    There has been no official decision on what to do with the property, here is what Ed Grier, President of the Disneyland Resort said recently....

    http://www.micechat.com/forums/showthread.php?t=51975


    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.
    Now, the City of Anaheim is also interested in some of the property Disney owns to expand Gene Autry Way to connect to the Convention Center, which might have the City to make a trade for some of the property.

    This also involves the zoning issue with the Mobile Home Park that some folks want to have Low Cost Housing and Condos built on. It would also block the Gene Autry expansion.

    It should be an interesting next 10 years or so as the plans expand.

    Easy solution...build a kind of utilidor system with 2 floors under the park. Floor 1 could be for back stage facilities and below that could be parking.

    It would be so nice to enter a park by getting out of your car and going right up a speed ramp into the park proper itself

    Great point about parking DarkBeer, I never even thought about that. I know that the parking structure that we already have is the biggest one of the country but it isn't big enough to handle another park. The Timon lot is going to be wiped out soon. The only place that I can think of that could handle even a small lot is the one on Disney Way (I forget what it is called because I never park there)

    And, supposedly that family will never, ever, ever sell the land to Disney. I'd have sold it decades ago! ha!

    Once the "Grandfather" who owned the farm passed on, Disney bought the property from the family, though some of it is still used to grow Strawberries under a lease. Once Disney wants the land, they can cancel the lease and build whatever they want (Hotel, DVC, a new park, etc..)

    I figured that Disney would win out in the end, and hey, why not sell it? Your family would be set for life! (I hope anyway!)

    Does it happen to be the field where they get the strawberries in the park? Those things are AMAZING!!!

    If I remember correctly, it's this largish area here that's currently part car park and part strawberry patch...

    The new shopping mall is going up just the other side of Katella... I forget what it is to be called now... The third gate is a bit removed from Downtown Disney and the other two gates, I wonder what they will do to connect the three parks if it ever goes ahead. I vote for an extended monorail system that connects the existing parks, downtown disney, the new shopping precinct, the convention centre and the third gate.

    What is the stuff that is on the area? I thought you said there was still a strawberry field but it looks like there is houses or something.
