They have already started on the time share and have been selling the time shares for a while.

We have a time share that we've had for a while and the other day I was checking out their website to get some ideas on how best to use my built-up time. I happened to run across Briggs Ranch and the description of the property did mention time shares that I could eventually use there along with the water park feature that was to be built also.

Here's the description from the site:

Briggs Ranch Grand Vacation Club • BGV

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Briggs Ranch is ideally situated in the hill country, just 18 miles from downtown San Antonio. It is adjacent to the renowned Golf Club of Texas at Briggs Ranch, a par-72, Lee Trevino signature course. The resort will feature a two-acre water park with a large swimming pool, 700-foot lazy river, interactive tree house, waterslides, waterfalls, outdoor hot water spas, and a swim-up poolside restaurant/bar. An administration building, owners lounge, adult and children's game rooms, pro shop, and an indoor-outdoor cafe will be on-site.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION OR RENOVATION



There's also some info coming once the new official website is up and running.

Default Disney

The 800 acres might be enough for the park itself currently the others are:
THE MAGIC KINGDOM - 107 acres
EPCOT - 160 acres
THE DISNEY/MGM STUDIOS - 154 acres

I have heard of many Disney rumors. There has been rumors for Houston, Sealy, and San Antonio. Go to DisneySealy.Com to find out some more stuff. If Disney builds a new park, it would be called "Disney America."

If it happens the best place for it would be the 211/90 area bar none, so who knows.

I have heard this rumor as well from people in the building industry. The rumor is that Disney did buy property in the Briggs Ranch area. They have been asking people with lots of land in that area about purchasing. Someone at AT&T who has a ranch in the area was approached. Interesting rumors and correlations.

Sounds like the rumors of when Sea World was coming. Everyone knew for sure that it was going to be built off I-10 EAST towards Houston. Land prices escalated due to the rumors, and of course sea world was built on the west side. Also with sea world was suppose to come some sort of operyland san antonio, or some sort of baseball theme amusement park.

I remember when the Sea World location was back and forth..east side, west side. I also remember reading that the new Hwy 151 that was planned for the area back then swung the momentum over to the west side where Sea World was eventually built. The hilly topography of the land was also mentioned as a plus as opposed to the flatter east side location.
