    Disney to expand Golden Oak Ranch studio facilities

    In a surprise move, Disney and ABC Studios announced plans Wednesday to build six pairs of soundstages and other production facilities on property it owns in the Santa Clarita Valley north of Los Angeles.

    Known as the Golden Oak Ranch, the 890-acre site was leased by Disney in the late 1950s and then bought up beginning in 1959. Mouse House used the land as the outdoor filming location for pics ranging from "Old Yeller" and "The Parent Trap" to two "Pirates of the Caribbean" installments.

    Disney's plans for substantial investment in the ranch are a sign of the company's commitment to local production.

    Now the company has filed paperwork with Los Angeles County to build on 56 acres of the property adjacent to the 14 Freeway. That would leave 195 acres for lensing, with the rest of the land remaining undeveloped. The land is about a half-hour via freeway from Disney's Burbank headquarters and lies within the industry-designated 30-mile studio zone.

    They still use the famous bridge in anything lately? I can always recognize the ranch by that bridge.

    Got a packet from Disney / ABC studios at The Ranch today in the mail. A "Dear Neighbor" letter explaining the project with a booklet with illustrations, information, and a card asking for our support. Drive by there frequently and it's always interesting to see what's going on there. Not sure what kind of negative impact this will have on our community, I tend to think it will be positive, but have heard arguments against. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

    You live in that area? The LA Times reported today that the people living in this area are being generally supportive for Disney. Which is a good thing.
