    Wink 5th Park??...

    :mickey: Hi folks!!

    I am relatively new to the forum so I appologise if I am repeating something all ready mentioned!!

    Last time I was at WDW from England in 2003 there were rumours going round about a 5th Theme Park to rival Universal Islands of Adventures.

    Is there any truth in these rumours or have they died down?

    Cheers , Trickster!!

    Welcome!!! To the DWT!!!!!!
    Someone else can probably answer that question better, but I don't believe there has been a formal announcement from Disney on this. They certainly do have the space to expand, and there have been rumors of a "thrill ride" type park to rival the Islands of Adventure, but there has also been talk of just adding more of those typs of rides to other parks.

    That is all that I know!

    That rumor has been around for 15+ yrs. even before IOA was created. According to many at Disney it is on the 5 yr plan to be built. The problem is they did not state which 5 years.

    looks to me like the Future World section of Epcot has already bebgan it's tranformation, Test Track, Mission:Space, Soarin'. One or two more attractions along these lines would cement this area, or perhaps it could creep into World Shocase (the raft Ride rumor for Canada)

    National Treasure roller coaster for AA? Should I pitch that idea over to the Imagineers?

    Design it yourself...
    Wouldn't that be soooooooo great if 'We', 'The Disney Fans', had an imput to the next park... I'm sure ideas for Rides, Stage Shows, Pavillions, Places to eat etc would come flooding in... And as for a name?!!?...
    If it was to be along the lines of IOA up at Universal... How about:
    "Mickey's Adventure Kingdom".
    Help!! My brain is running with ideas all ready!!........

    A 5th park?

    If they do a 5th park, I hope that they stick to Disney themes. Rock N Rollercoaster is great, but Areosmith has nothing to do with Disney. They have such a vast library of movies to draw on it shouldn't be hard.
    The worst day at Walt Disney World is better than the best day anywhere else!

    The great thing about Disney/MGM is that does not have to stick with disney themes. I kind of hope they due one on american history or something close such as Walt Disney National Park

    As for a 5th park, what i heard was that they are planning a 5th park yes it is to rivial Island of adventure. I also heard it was to be a villians theme. to cater to the young people.

    I hope Disney doesn't think they need more thrill rides. I like Disney the way it is. It has something for everybody. As much as I love thrill rides, I wouldn't want to ride them the whole day. Families with young children and the young at heart need to be able to have fun too. My 75 year old grandmother came to Disney with us last year and had tons of fun, but she was having to wait for us to ride the thrill rides. The Magic Kingdom is my favorite park because there are more things I can do with her there.

    I also just this sea-world style fifth park rumor again on my last trip to WDW. Still doesn't make a ton of sense to me, and I don't think it will happen, but you never know!

    ya personally i would like the idea of a thrill park of to itself. That way you can keep the magic of the other praks without ruining their atmosphere with rollercoasters and other non-disney themed thrill rides
