    Disney says not in talks on Bahrain park- Reuters- 2/6/07

    Disney says not in talks on Bahrain park
    Disney says not in talks on Bahrain park
    Walt Disney Co. denied on Tuesday that it is in talks to build a theme park in Bahrain, following a newspaper report saying Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was negotiating to build an $8 billion Disney park in the heart of the world's biggest oil exporting region.

    The project purportedly would be based on Disney's theme parks and could be called "Disney Bahrain," Bahrain's al-Waqt newspaper said, citing an unnamed source.

    But a Disney spokeswoman said the company "is not in talks to build a theme park in Bahrain."

    Notice how they didn't deny a new park in oil rich Texas...
    That was wonderful! Bravo! I loved that! Ah, that was great! Well, it was pretty good. Well, it wasn't bad. Uh, there were parts of it that weren't very good though. It could have been a lot better. I didn't really like it. It was pretty terrible. It was bad. It was awful! It was terrible! Take 'em away! Boo! Boo!

    And unless they deny something that's unrelated to the subject at hand, it must be true. Reminds me of the Colbert Report segment where he says that unless a celebrity says they're not gay, he'll just have to assume they are.

    Well, this is the "no duh" moment of the week... The next park with either be in Shanghai (dumb idea - because they should fix Hong Kong first), or in India (which is about 7 to 10 years away)...

    They didn't advertise the new Texas deal in the Super Bowl as some said they would.
