Disney isn't coming to S.A. for the umpteenth time. Even if they did, we're still AP holders at WDW and we'd never stop going there. Nothing beats staying at the Contemporary, Poly or AKL which will never be the same in Texas if they were to come. Disney (Eisner) has publically announced in the past that they are not planning any theme parks in the United States. If they change their mind, great. But i'm not counting on it in the least; no expactation, no disappointment.

That said, we're going to AKL in December for our annual MVMCP pilgrimage.

Never say never. Before Sea World announced they were putting a park in San Antonio, nobody expected that.

Something is happening between the city of San Antonio and Disney. Whether it's a large scale theme park or a small version of it, something is in the works.

Not saying I don't believe you but I do hope you are right, however, what is the source of this information?

Hopefully if not a theme park then its a downtown development.

I know WOAI had the Northwest Growth special Friday where they were live from Northwest Vista College and were interviewing Martin Wender who is the developer behind Westover Hills.

I believe they said they were going to ask him about Disney and the rumors concerning San Antonio. I think they ran out of time before they could ask and I'm not sure if they ever did.

BTW, WOAI has to taking stories ideas from this board. I know Jeff Coyle reads the board and he does alot of pieces on development and growth but all of a sudden WOAI does a week long series on the growth and then a special friday news cast on location where they interview a developer asking about "Disney rumors." Hmmm...

I don't know if anyone saw the WOAI story tonight, but they had a brief bit on how Disney was looking at the area now Alamo Ranch in Westover hills. They had the westover hills developer on saying he had Disney in a helicopter but they killed the project due to poor performance from EuroDisney (sp)

FWIW

Wow, so close. Maybe we're still in the pipeline for something.

What exactly does EuroDisney have to do with us? Their theme parks have obviously been successful here. If it's a matter of not getting enough return on their investment in Europe that is somehow making another US park financially inviable, well, given that they're Disney, having one park not perform up to snuff isn't exactly going to bankrupt them.

No but when your losing millions on a park(s), you find a solution for that park before you move on to your next idea. If you don't, it wouldn't be long before you go bankrupt.
