    Of all the ideas I have ever heard, this is one of them.

    Yes, and while we are at it let's buy Harbor Blvd and 4 miles of the I-5.

    If they could buy the property, I'd say go for it, but Walt didn't have the forsight to buy all of Anaheim when he built DL.

    But while they're at it, why don't they buy ALL of California, turn it into a country, then it could really be Disneyland.

    I don't think Walt had the money back then to but the land AND build the park. If he spent all the money on the land as opposed to the park it would have been Disneyrealm.

    They would have to pay very top dollar for any adjacent property. And what could they build on current site of of the Harbor Motels? There really isn't all that much room there. Definitely not a theme park. Maybe hotels, but will the people who currently stay at the relatively cheap Harbor motels be willing to pay more (say 2X) to stay at a new Disney hotel complex, or will they just stay at cheaper digs a block or two south?

    I know that some have speculated that Disney could build an equivalent of WDW's All Star resorts there, but the land would be so expensive that I'm not sure they could charge enough to cover it.

    He probably didn't, unless he wanted to use half the land, and sell oranges on the space he wanted to build on at a later time.

    And now they would probably only be able to buy up hotels and everything else around one at a time, and would have to pay a lot because of the location.
