I think I've heard that rumor as well. I'm not sure how true it is or not, and I don't really know where any other proposed sites for DW were. Sorry I'm not much help!
As you can tell this is my first post ever, and I'm rather new to this wonderful site. I'm just really getting into Disney history and trivia, so there is a lot for me to learn. I loved the book and can't wait for the next volume, and I also love the pod casts. Now to the question. I'm sure this question has been answered, but here goes anyway.....
I was born and raised in a suberb of New Orleans and currently reside in Baton Rouge because I'm a student at LSU. I had heard from someone that Southern Louisiana was a proposed home of WDW. Does anyone know if this is true, and is there a story to why WD passed on LA? Also, were there any other proposed locations for WDW?
I know that Walt Disney looked all over the US for the location of Walt Disney World, and FL won out because it had the best option of size. I know he looked at a lot of other locations, can't name all of them, but I'm assuming one reason for LA not being chosen is because of its sea level and size. I know he looked at size, location, growth, how it could work out in the future, and other stuff like that, FL had the best options so it won. :-)
