New Orleans needs the business. Build one there.

New Orleans needs PEOPLE! The population went from like 400,000 to 252,000... or something like that. The Disney park might help, but I doubt it.

It did with Orlando, before it was just tons of swamps and a small city of 20,000 pre Disney World in 1970, now its a metro of 2,693,552.

They would put it near San Antonio....
I don't think Disney is going to build anything in Texas anytime soon...
There are too many theme parks within 200 miles of the DC area as it is. King's Dominion, Busch Gardens (the better one), Two Six Flags parks. That's to much IMO. I like the idea of Corpus Christi but they wouldu really have to build I-69 then. There's only one way you can go there via interstate and that's from San Antonio on I-37.

I would vote Texas or the D.C./Maryland/Northern Virginia area. California already has enough amusement parks, including a Disney one hehe. If the Midwest were to get a Disney World, I'd put it in Missouri simply because it's the nearest to the center of the country you can get.

Where on earth did you get your information? In 1970 Orlando had a population of 99,000 and Orange County had a population of 344,000.
http://www.census.gov/prod/cen1990/cph2/cph-2-1-1.pdf

Orlando was already becoming an important city with such big corporations as Martin Marietta and IBM in town before Disney came swooping in.

In July 2007 Orlando's MSA had an estimated population of 2,032,496.
Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Area Estimates (http://www.census.gov/popest/metro.html - broken link)

Orlando's growth has indeed been impressive, but there's no need to fabricate numbers to prove it.

I vote for nowhere. Does there need to be yet another one of those things?

my vote is for Wichita,Kansas cause I dont think they get much tourism there so they need anything they can get and Disney would do the trick , you just gotta brave the cold.

I heard rumors that Disney already owns land in San Antonio. San Antonio is the gateway to Mexico, so that would be attractive to Disney to draw visitors form Mexico.
