Then, if they were to build on Coney Island? Oh my goodness, there'd be so many hurdles to jump over. Even I wouldn't approve of them ridding of the Cyclone, or the Wonder Wheel. Landmarks. Historic.
I could see a way for Disney to make a presence there, though...
I'm about a ten minute drive from Playland in Rye, NY. It's right on the CT border, (or so.) It was once a big day trip destination, with a beach, casino, pool, and big amusement park. Almost like Coney Island. It's the only park in the country that is run by the government. Unfortunately, it is not up to the standards today that it was in the early 30s, when it opened.
If the park and the surrounding area was to be organized a little better, and a little bit more land was opened up, we could have a nice little park. They wouldn't be able to make a Magic Kingdom, but they could run the park, add what ever they want. Make it truly magical.
I know that Disney running an amusement park wouldn't be up to most peoples' standards on here, (including mine,) but I've often wondered what it would be like if Disney just opened up... an amusement park.
