    If it was up to me, every resident of Coney Island, including the gated community of Sea Gate, west of the Stillwell Ave subway station, would be evicted per eminent domain. Every building razed. Land filled as needed. The Disney can build a mini-resort featuring an shopping-dining-entertainment district, 2 or 3 hotels.DVC resorts, and a theme park. Preferably, a DisneySea style park.
    Disneyland East was considered for the site of the Worlds' Fair. Now that's Flushing Meadows Park. If Disney was going to build on that, I'm sure they'd face opposition from many groups.

    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.

    Well considering India is one of the most populous countries in the world, and also a relatively decent tourist location (in some areas), I could see this as a possibility.

    mmm.. I heard about Singapur, South Corea and South America. I don't think Australia as a good market for a Disney Park, it needs more people...

    ^Exactly. Just Shanghi has a population of 19 million, while all of Australia combined has a population of 21 million.

    ^Right. I think Singapore is going to be the next disney destination, there is Universal Studios Singapore so this "war" between both companies will continue (And I like it cause' both resorts get bigger competing with each other). then in South America... I would really like it to be in Argentina (It's my country :/ and that's why my english is bad..) but I know that it's going to be in Brazil

    I hope this is the last Disney park there making. I mean not like park like Disney California Adventure just the last park international and national. Disney can keep expanding new lands to parks they have already built but ones really far away from each other is too much. Shanghai Disneyland and that's it! I do not have enough money to go to all parks if they keep expanding more of them around the world!

    I don't know if they will make another destination. If they do, it won't come for a long time. I think we have a better chance of a third gate at Disneyland than we do another resort.

    Just what I have to say.

    Re: After Shanghaî, what other destinations for future Disney theme parks?

    Considering the problems encountered with the last two locations, Paris and HK, it would be wise for Disney to consider either owning the park outright with no partner so they can completely control the quality, or make sure to have a 100% committed partner like OLC. I have a bad feeling the Shanghai park will run into some of the same problems that HK has had with the Chinese government dragging its heels on spending money and being unrealistic on what it takes in terms of commitment to run a first-rate operation. That said, anyplace else in the world right now has considerable minuses. India at the present time just doesn't have a large enough middle class to support a Disney park. Ditto for South America. We'll see a third gate in SoCal before another locale is added to the park roster.

    this.
    but any way, i have a few ideas.
    1. Disneyland Israel for the win!
    2. Texas, because i live here and love my state, and as much as i love Disney, i would never move out of Texas, so unless one is built here, i don't ever see my self living near a Disney park for more than a year or so.
    3. Canada, Americas top hat.
    4. Mexico would also be a good north American country to build in.
    5. Australia, this needs to happen. for gods sake Disney why don't you do this!
    So. Zetta. SLOW!

    Re: After Shanghaî, what other destinations for future Disney theme parks?

    Disneyland Isreal most likely won't happen because of its proximity to an area so tense with anti-Americanism. Texas is too close to Florida and California to be viable. Canada, although one can dream, is just to underpopulated and has poor weather for too much of the year while Australia just has the underpopulation.

    Mexico again has some national problems of its own that might prohibit Disney's investment and is still somewhat close to Disney's American Resorts.

    All of those locations would be dismissed pretty quickly at a corporate meeting. Israel doesn't have enough people to support a Disney park, and it's not like the neighbors would be able to visit.
    Australia also doesn't have enough people and is rather remote for people to visit. It's easier for Southeast Asians to go to Hong Kong.
    Canada is just too cold, and Vancouver doesn't have enough of a population.
    Mexico doesn't have enough of a middle class and is close enough to SoCal, and even Florida, to consider building in.
    Texas is in between the coasts and would just cannibalize the existing US resorts.
    For the foreseeable future, I don't see where they could build... which is just as well since they should concentrate on fixing up HKDL and DLP if possible.

    In defence of my country , many areas such as Toronto and Vancouver enjoy over half a year of warm temperatures. The main issue is population, followed by the issue of winter months.

    1. as for Israel, like i said that would be in an ideal world. but yeah not enough people, and honestly, i think are more concerned about safety and stability rather than a park. 2. WHY DO YOU HAVE TO CRUSH MY DREAMS OF A TEXAS PARK! JK i know its not possible, and Disney would say no, but hell a man can dream cant he. 3. Canada is to cold? you could say that California is to shaky (earthquake) and Floridian is to windy( hurricanes). not sure what you mean by that.
    So. Zetta. SLOW!
