A kid in high school told me that Disney had bought out six flags( fiesta Texas.)
needless to say I had gotten very excited that Disney would be in tx. It never happened.
*so sad*

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

Disneyland Texas is one of the more prevalent Disney rumors. You could probably find a dozen threads about it.

Actually, Disney has shelved their idea of a Dark Kingdom (a villain's take on the Magic Kingdom) but have green lit a Dark EPCOT to be built elsewhere at WDW. That's probably the real story. They'll also establish monorail pylons to connect it to the Dark Kingdom if they ever build it.

Yeah, that's it..... :

Disney Six Flags? Does this mean we will be seeing Daffy and Donald dueling pianos in real life?

Wow the dark kingdom idea sounds amazing. If the plans were real, why did they cancel them?
...
Maybe they will replace six flags with that dark kingdom ;D

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?

Instead of being inspired by Marceline, MO in the 1940s it could be inspired by Gary, IN in the 1980s?

Why is Disney buying land in Selma Alabama? I hope they are prepare to meet with all sort of people who aren't to speak their language or might look differently from them. I heard bad things about that place.
