Disney World Branson

Wednesday, July 19, 2006 11:00 AM
I see several threads in theme park discussion boards about this, but not one credible news article (via google news) that suggests Disney owns anything in Branson.

All I've found is this no-longer-Disney consulting company offering design opinions on the project.

If any one can find a news source, I'd be interested to see it.

You won't until the news officially breaks (if it ever does). More than likely IF this is DISNEY, they are doing the exact same thing as they did in Orlando - buying under other names.

Oh, for goodness sake. If Joe Average "knows" it's happening, the newspapers do too, and they'd've reported it by now.

True: Little Known fact - Newspapers did blew the cover on the Disney purchases in FL. It even forced them to reveal the project before they wanted to.

Bottom line: It's been 40 some years since Disney in FL....compared to today those were probably dark ages for investigating such dealings. In today's internet age, I would imagine it would be MUCH easier to find out such things.

Brian & Peabody, I'm playing Devil's Advocate here -- I know. ;)

Besides the Herschends would never allow a major competitor near THEIR town.

beast7369's avatar I think that a competitor like Disney in Branson would actually help the Herschends more than it would hurt them. Just a personal thought.

I wish I had a list of all the places that Disney was "rumored" to have been buying up land for a theme park. It would probably take days to read!

Disney's arrival in Orange County, CA certainly didn't hurt Knotts. In fact, KBF benefitted from the new flock of tourists that came to visit DL and also went there.

In 1973 I traveled to Southern California to visit the various attractions in the area. I really enjoyed both parks and spent two days at each of them.

Hehe, Jeff's old enough to remember (gasp!) investigative journalism... ;)

Seriously, dude, get with the times and go to a press conference or something! :)
