    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.

    Of all the parks to go to the "other side", I'd have thought Epcot would've been the last.:rotfl2: Your dd3 made me laugh. Thanks.

    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!!! :thumbsup2

    I just heard from a reliable source that Disney is getting rid of Mickey, Donald, and company and replacing all the characters with characters from horror movies. Instead of Mickey, the main character now will be Jason from Friday the 13th!

    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?

    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.

    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! :sad1: It would be 3 decades before I got to actually see Walt's vision.

    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..... :rolleyes1:

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