    A New Disney Park?

    Today I was looking around for the newest Disney news, and here's what I found...

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- Malaysia is in talks to bring the Disney theme park to a new township in the Southeast Asian country, a business weekly reported Sunday.
    Government officials have made an attractive offer to Oriental Land Co., the Japanese company that operates Tokyo Disneyland, to run a similar park in Malaysia, The Edge quoted unidentified sources as saying.



    The report didn't elaborate on the offer, saying only that talks are ongoing.

    "The discussions are progressing well," one source was cited as saying. "The Disney theme park may occupy about 2,000 acres (800 hectares) of Nusajaya."

    Nusajaya is a 9,200-hectare (23,000-acre) township developed by UEM World Bhd., a government-linked company, in the southwestern tip of peninsular Malaysia, near Singapore.

    UEM World officials could not be reached for comment Sunday.

    The Edge said that Walt Disney Co. is interested in the proposed Malaysian park as it will not compete with the other Asian Disney parks in Hong Kong and Tokyo, as well as the one planned in Shanghai, due to geographical distance. A Disney park in Nusajaya could, however, pose stiff competition to two casino-cum-resorts to be set up soon in Singapore.

    Wow, that's quite interesting indeed!!

    Unfortunately, I was hoping they would take it into South America rather than Asia....again.
    Remember, Dreams Come True!

    Not happening... Not just yet anyway.... Disney denies ever agreeing to build a new park in Malaysia... I think if a new park was coming, India would be the first choice...
    TRICIA JONES: I heard that you were going to propose to Brandi Svenning at some theme park. When are men going to learn that women want ROMANCE, not Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...
    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    yeah, but big companies deny everything to keep it secret. Why did WD buy the land in FL under weird names? So that it would be a surprise! So, I wouldn't count it out.
