best rumor ever

My DD3 gave me the best rumor ever the car tonight. Apparently Epcot is moving to the other side of Disney World. She gave no details. Sounds exciting!

Anyone else hear this?

Not quite that good...but several years ago I heard that Disney had bought land to build a park in Selma, Alabama.

That's right. Disney is going to build a park 50 miles from the interstate in a depressed part of Alabama for no apparent reason.

If WDW builds it, they will come! It will no longer be a depressed area! So that is good news!

Maybe it's just so that they could get rid of the sinkholes?

That's no more crazy than building a theme park in the middle of a Florida swamp.

TRU DAT!!!
As a child of the 60's, growing up in Florida, we heard this unbelievable yarn about that "Florida Disneyland"-(that's what we called it).
And of course, about a month after they actually broke ground, Dad got stationed to Galveston! It would be 3 decades before I got to actually see Walt's vision.

If it makes you feel better...he never came close to seeing it...
And his incredibly tired brother barely made it past the ribbon cutting ceremony.

I often wonder how Disney would have turned out if Walt had lived to say...85 (roughly 1986)...
It would have been interesting.

But as the surgeon general says: smoking = bad

Let's combine some of these rumors by building an exact opposite to Walt Disney World in Texas. Start with a "dark/villain" Magic Kingdom, then wait about 11 years and build a dark Epcot...8 years later...build a dark Hollywood studios, and then finally build a dark animal kingdom. Along the way, build dark hotels, water parks, etc.


While thinking about a "bizarro" opposite WDW, I came up with some interesting rides. New to Fantasyland would be Ursula's Voyage. Old Fantasyland would include a ride called Captain Hook. Tomorrowland would include a ride about Zurg. Randall could have the laugh floor or insult floor. In Epcot, Test Track could become traffic jam.

However, I do admit...I did not like making Main Street the opposite. I mean...wouldn't the opposite of Main Street be a slum?

Of all the parks to go to the "other side", I'd have thought Epcot would've been the last. Your dd3 made me laugh. Thanks.

Well, of course it would be Epcot. They can just roll spaceship earth off its pillars, give it a good shove, and that's half the work done already.

Oh, sweetie, no. They took the ball down to use at Splitsville.

Smart cookie you have there! Her rumor makes just as much sense as some of the others out there, so I'm sure it has to be true!!!
