    Re: A New Disney Park in Missouri? The Rumor is Gaining Ground

    QuikQuote: After rumors flew last week that Disney was planning to build a $1.1 billion theme park in the area, Presiding Commissioner Jerry Carter got the word Monday that, as he put it, it's "shenanigans."
    "I just talked to the vice president of public affairs for Disney, and she said there's nothing to it," Carter said.
    Carter said Disney officials didn't recognize the names of any of the three owners of ARM Risk, the company supposedly working to assemble the 1,000 acres of land. "(Disney) can say absolutely that they're not involved in Newton County or in southwest Missouri," Carter said.

    Great update DB. Thanks.

    I'm curious to see how this plays out now. ARM Risk could be in serious trouble with the Missouri Secretary of State and the AG's office for providing false information.

    Assuming it REALLY is false.

    Some not-allowed-to-be-named site helped to debunk the myth in a story today.
    Summary of the logic is: if Disney went through six fictitious-name companies to buy 10000 acres of Florida swamp, why would DIS use the Disney corporate address on this fictitious name application?
    Guesses in the comments include Six Flags.

    Or, DIS might consider building a theater there to house former Broadway shows. They could run for a year or two there before hitting the circuit. Don't know why they'd need 1000 acres for that.

    Best guess: land speculators trying to increase the value of their land in order to sell it to some dupe.

    A MiceChat member site also debunked this story today and we've got some other interesting Disney dish. At least I think its pretty interesting, but then again I'm not exactly in a postion to be impartial.

    Rumors.......The whole idea just doesn't make sense. While the branson area is a thriving tourist destination it just wouldn't be a suitable place for a disney park. The winters are just way too cold to keep a park open year round. For this reason alone I don't think it would ever happen. Could you imagine trying to keep the water in the Jungle cruise from freezing over?
