Oh, we have our share of humid days, but nothing like Florida, especially in the hotter months - it dries out quite a bit. The humidity is 30% as I type this.

The funny thing about Texas is that it's always changing and never consistent. At least in Florida you pretty much know what you're going to get. Texas can be humid or dry, hot or cool compared to previous weeks or previous years. And Dallas is even different that central Texas where I am. Makes it interesting if nothing else.

Is this even a question, it obviously would go to Texas. It just makes the most scense. Houston, Austin, or San Antonio will get it if it ever happens mark my words.

Even better! That's a great idea. It will bring some new life to Lubbock if we ever get to do this.

But then, Houston lost Astroworld, so they are instantly in the running.

So I'm seeing Texas alot.... so I'll make a list of the cities that are likely to have the park from most likely to least, with percentage points.
  • San Antonio - 94%
  • Houston - 80%
  • Arlington - 77%
  • Fort Worth - 62%
  • Austin - 60%
  • Dallas - 49%
  • Corpus Christi - 40%
  • El Paso - 36%
  • Lubbock - 33%
  • Amarillo - 20%
  • Any other town in Texas - 12 to 4%%

I think San Antonio makes the most sense since it already has SeaWorld and the Riverwalk, which are known outside of TX unlike many of the attractions in other TX cities. So it would be like FL having a Disney park and SeaWorld in the same city. Or you can put it in Austin and have it be like SoCal where the Disney park and Seaworld are about 1.5 hours apart.

There are already 2 Disney theme parks, we dont need a third.
Then again they have one in Orlando which is hotter with higher humidity than almost anywhere in Texas.
I say Corpus Christi would be an awesome choice. It would instantly rejuvenate a prime location in Texas that is kind of floundering right now and it is a relatively easy drive from Houston, Austin and SA. SA and Houston and Dallas already have plenty going for them so why not give it to a smaller city with a perfect location that could use it? In Florida, disney located in small Orlando instead of the major metros of Miami and Tampa and things worked out pretty well there!
