I was told
I was told by a group of CM's at Disney Quest about two interesting things.
First I asked them if it was true that at the end of the year that Disney Quest was going to shut down and become ESPN, and they laughed and told me that Disney was currently adding three million dollars worth of equiptment to Disney Quest and that they had heard this rumor and laughed because like they said, Disney is spending three million dollars right now, and are going to put an additional eight miilion into it by 2009. They are currently writing a new Pirates of the Caribbean game so that it will have the characters from the films. They expect it to be complete by next summer if all goes as planned.
The second thing was that they informed me that Disney is indeed working on a fifth park which will be located somewhere between Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. They told me that within the next year and a half, Diney will unveil everything. They did not know the name, but one of them said that he had seen early models of it and it looks like a thrill park.
That would be very cool if they came up with another theme park. I wonder what it will be about????

wow..all this information is soo cool. It just makes it harder for all of us. First we went to Disney for 3 days, now 4, and now we have to go for 5. O darn ...
Another new park would be really, really exciting! But I am not gonna believe it just yet, only because the rumors have existed for SO long about a thill park, a villans park and everything in between. I hope it happens tho! That just means one more park to go to!

WOW!! thanks for the 411!
Hmmm. I'm not sure how I feel about a 'thrill' park, honestly.
I think it's one of the biggest things that separates WDW from coughuniversalstudioscough WDW is totally, 100% family friendly, and is all about "wishes" and "making dreams come true" and "magic", etc....whereas coughuniversalcough is all about THRILL. Granted, dh and I did have a great time at coughuniversalcough this summer, when we went on a buy one/get one pass in the mail... but it was just about thrill thrill thrill--there was no "magic", no "dreams come true", no "wish upon a star" or anything like that. I really believe that is what separates WDW and makes it what it is.....and IMO, a "thrills" theme park, while in good competition with coughuniversalcough, would be kinda....well, wierd....to me, for what I know WDW as being.

hmm.. I doubt Disney would do a "thrill" park.
Perhaps a park with thrills in it but not a thrill park
Remember, Dreams Come True!
That's so cool! It would probably take a while to build because that's right where the golf coarses are, and they would have to level out the land.

Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney
Well, Keep in mind Disney has it's way of incorporating "family" into various things. Like Mission Space... They have the playground and interactive games after the ride for the kids. They always think about their princesses and pirates. Think about it, they would have thrill rollercoasters for the youngsters and for the teens/young adults/adults. If they made a thrill park, I think people would be curious about if Disney REALLY made thrill rides like Universal, Islands of Adventure, and Busch Gardens. I think they'd make a GREAT deal of money off of their thrill rides. Then I can say "Take THAT Universal!" Just kidding.

The 5th park I was told was going to be full of thrill rides so they can compete with Universal Studios & get as many teens out there to visit.
Yes DQ is not closing!!!! I went for the first time last year and it was great! A new park would be cool. But that rumor has been around for years, so we will have to wait and see.

very cool, i would be more excited to see a new theme park than additions made to disney quest. I have only been to disney quest once and it was fun. They best thing they had there was the design and ride your own rollar coaster thing. I probably wont go back there anytime soon though. A new theme park would be cool but i think they could add so much more to animal kingdon before they build a new park.
