Well, I think this could be an interesting thing to let you guys know. This is a rumor that's been running lately, don't know if this would become a reality, but it interesting anyways.
Don't know if some of you know, but......
Here in Puerto Rico we had until recently the Roosevelt Roads Naval Base, which is maybe the second largest of the US base. Anyway, thanks to constrains in budgets,and reorganizations this base had to close. Roosevelt Roads is at least 28 square miles (maybe half the size of the City of Ceiba,lol)
Rumors started circulating that Disney noticed this land, and they were planning to make an offer to it after Federal govt. give back this land to state government.
Good thing about this place? Infrastructure.
Piers for Naval ships (and nuclear submarines(which are huge, like Disney Cruises that travel the Caribbean), airport facilities, of course excellent for bringing huge jets (like the B52's that used to land here when there was the Panama Conflict, perfect for having guests arrive right into the park),excellent water infrastructure, energy, and beautiful beaches (Ceiba is located exactly on the eastern part of Puerto Rico)There's a lot of Marine life (Dolphins, sea Turtles, great scuba Diving, different small islands on the sea)and summer all year (count out the Hurricane season, bad, Hurricane Alley). Also Roosevelt Roads has gigantic underground facilities, some insiders say, it has it's own underground city.
So speculation was running on high for some time that this would be perfect land for a new Disney park, and instead of Florida, weather is not that annoying (like raining one minute, sun the next minute and so on).
This would be an awesome combination of such a ******* of a Park, based on concepts of Tokyo's Disney @ The Sea, but at the same time this land has almost the same terrains conditions like Florida but add the mix of being very close to a Tropical Rain Forest (You can see El Yunque National Rain-forest from Roosevelt Roads), and the coast, and you could bring one heck of a complex!
anyone has more info on this, or any comments on if this is ofr real what should it look like, or what shouldn't?
I guess this post should me moved to the other parks section, with rumors and gossip. I am still very sleepy
