Disney's Night Kingdom?
Came across this blog about a proposed 5th Disney Park at WDW called Disney's Night Kingdom
. Sounds interesting...
[The park would be Walt Disney World's fifth, would open in late afternoons... and charge between $250-300 per person. Think a Disney version of Discovery Cove. Look for a 2011 opening.]
While I am sure it would be top notch, I would really like to see a Disney version of a thrill ride theme park. Maybe 4-5 giga coasters and about the same number of highest tech dark rides. Plus, the admission is a bit steep. I was never attracted to Discovery Cove due to the high cost of admission.
Based on the description, I'll probably pass. Don't forget that the price at discovery cove drops $100 without the dolphin swim.
So, basically, they're looking to develop a night-time section of Disney's Animal Kingdom...just with a separate gate. Smart. I mean, most of the animals are more active at night anyway....and I remember about 5 years ago having discussions with folks about how Disney needed a "night-time" event at the park (at that time, we were talking about another dinner show, i.e., Polynesian Luau-type show out on the savannah). I think this is great!!! Another way to leverage existing resources....I mean, the care and feeding of animals is EXPENSIVE....they're smart to look for additional revenue streams to support this. I'm all for it. I hope it's actually a go....
Jim Hill broke this about thw days ago. Check his site for more discussion.
The link takes you to the Jim Hill Media site.
You have to take Jim Hill articles with a grain of salt...or sometimes a whole spoonful of it.
This may seem like a stupid question but why have so many parks within a stones throw of each other?
There are so many theme parks in a small area because it sells. You don't go to Orlando just to go to Magic Kingdon, you do to do all of Disney & more.
