Disney says third Anaheim park still not a certainty

Posted Saturday, August 11, 2001 9:38 PM | Contributed by supermandl

Disney has said that they plan to add a third attraction to its Anaheim complex, but tells concerned residents that at this point, they're not sure what it will be yet.

Why does Disney have all of its focus on Anaheim CA.? Why not build some of these parks in other parts of the country? I dont get it.

Chitowns 6 year old daughter says "Daddy, Dippin Dots are nasty!!" I must say that I agree!!

They want to be able to attract visitors who will stay in their hotels for more than one night when they visit their resorts. If there is only one park, then a guest will most likely only need one day to visit. But if there are more parks, then guests will want to stay longer to visit them all.
I think Disney wants to recreate, somewhat, what they have in Florida in California.

I just think disney parks suck for the average coaster enthusiest. Look at the new park california adventure. They have a few decent rides and about a billion dollars in themeing. I think disney is highly overated. Who cares about some tinkerbell theming crap. I think the price of the entry for the park is crazy. What does disney cost? 60-80 bucks, for half of that you can get into cedarpoint or another big themepark with 3 times as many rides.

chill factor

I wish they'd build something like DCA at WDW and call it Disney's Florida Adventure, and it'd have pretty much some of the same rides, except maybe a B&M Inverted and Vekoma Flying. They need some extreme rides down there besides Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain and Rock'n'Roller Coaster.

Why do they need another park?

Rollercoasters are the secret of life!

They said that there wont be a problem, ya right! If a third park is built, the parking problem is going to be huge.

Jordon Dunham, while not very well put, your point of view is just that. It is all a matter of what you are looking for. Being a coaster enthusiasts website, your point of view is the more dominant one. Disney has some coasters and therefore will be covered by this website. Feel free to spend your money elsewhere and that means one less person in front of me in line when I go to Disney. Dollar for dollar, you won't find a better value. I would rather have a CLEAN, LITTER FREE park with great theming than a dirty, filthy disgusting park any day.

Yes, exactly, and what about all the young children who come to the Disney Park's and you see their faces light up with joy as their favourite Disney characters come to life before their very eyes. It would be cruel to put rollercoasters in a Disney Park which in turn would attract teenagers (a la Magic Mountain) who would enevitably spoil the experience for the children. Don't ever expect Disney to listen to Coaster Enthusiasts, they are providing for kids, and make a nice profit out of it!
Just like the World Wildlife Fund doesnt care about World Wrestling Federation fans as their focus is on wildlife not violence, Disney doesnt care about enthusiasts as their focus is on the kids not possible disruptive teens.

If you are a teenager, don't be offended by this, but you know what I mean - Some teens ARE very disruptive.

but for half of what it takes to get into California's Adventure, i can go to pki which is a CLEAN, somewhat litter free park. also, the coasters there are record breakers or were record breakers when they first opened.

Vortex rules!!!! (still)

Hey now, I grew up on Disney and my first roller coaster was Space Mountain, that theming crap is why there soooo rich. The small details add up, like words on aa box at the end ogf Grzzly River run, or California Screamin' wouldn't be fun at night without the Christmas lights strung up it's wazzoo. I think disney rocks and by the way, it's $40 bucks, and I paid $89 bucks and I go every friday, so get of Walt Disney's dead butt because disney rocks!

You tell 'em OCHSA bud!

I agree with OCHSA Bud. Hey, don't knock it until you try it. I go to parks mainly for coasters but the themeing and the atmosphere have alot to do with the experience. I personally really like DCA and I agree that more rides need to be added but I still would visit the park for what it is right now (which is a THEME PARK). And yes, Disney was made mainly for families and especially young kids. *** This post was edited by ALEEN6E6 on 8/13/2001. ***

I personally would go to another park with more coasters rather than a Disney park. However, if I had kids right now, which I am trying to put off for as long as possible by the way, I would definitely take them to a Disney park over any other park in the country! I grew up on Disney as well, and slowly worked my way up to Millenium Force by riding things such as Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad first. And as for Disney and their "Tinkerbell Theming," I say
Quality over Quantity anyday!!!!!

Bottom Line: If you want coasters then go somewhere else - That is not what Disney is about. It is called the 'Happiest Place on Earth'. They are not going to wake up tomorrow and change their slogan to 'We have completely lost all sense of our past, and turned our back on our millions of passionate fans, and instead we are going to cram the park full of dirty rollercoasters, with no theming and hope it brings in teens with cash-filled pockets'.

I can see it now - Millennium Force dominating the skyline over Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty's/Beauty and the Beast's Castle, whilst the new attraction over at Big Thunder Mountain for the 2003 season? - An ugly, noisy pointless, Boomerang. *** This post was edited by Dan the Coaster Fan on 8/14/2001. ***

janfrederick's avatar Personally, they should invest the money in DCA. It could use a few more major attractions. I still like it though (although CA Screamin' should have been wood...noise concerns I imagine)

Yeeee Haaawwww!

I  think DCA is an awesome park! I have passes to both DL & DCA and I have been to DCA about 15 times more than I've been to DL with the passes.  If you hav'nt heard, Disney just bought FOX fo 5 billion dollars and are talking with AT&T executives about buying them out for 40 billion dollars. If they would just spend 1 billion dollars on getting more rides for DCA it would be a lot better than it already is!
