The north is not really an option because Disney operates 365. Most theme parks in the north have to close several months out of the year due to snow and freezing temperatures. There is just no way around it. Yes hurricanes are an issue in south Texas but there have only been one or two hurricanes that really hurt the area and it would only mean 1 day of shut down the same thing they do in Orlando since they would be maintaining their own power and such.

Now I know this region of the south pretty well as I went to Jr. High and High school close to this area. I lived in Montgomery County which is right to the North East of Waller County. I use to drive on the street they mentioned all the time.
However, I've never even heard of three mile creek. That could be a local name fore something I'll ask my friends who live closer to this part of 1488 to see if they know what it is.

The other issue is I don't know what area of 1488 in Waller county has 10 square miles that doesn't have roads running through it. Just look at the google maps for the area. The only part that doesn't is the state park and I don't imagine the state of Texas giving that up. There is also some land by the Texas Renaissance festival grounds but there are a lot of little roads around there that could cause issues.

On the other hand this area of TX still has a lot of undeveloped areas and farm land so besides the roads that dissect things up Disney has the potential to grow. It has has two major highways very close (I-45 and I-59) that would make it an easy travel for those coming from the middle America states.

Final though on this. It is not the first time Disney has supposedly been looking for land in Texas. I remember when I was younger there was a large plot of land south of Houston that Disney, Nascar and some other big companies were looking at. I believe at the end of the day Nascar bought a chunk and then the city of Houston annexed the rest and now there are a bunch of commuter type communities in that area.
