Published: March 3, 2008 at 3:42 PMCorrect me if I'm wrong, but arent the international parks just licensed by Disney? Such as the A/B deal, they dont put the money up for the park....only the licensing rights..and of course they get a percentage of the profits.

Published: March 4, 2008 at 6:59 AMMy question is why there? As would be a small Park in the centre of the city that will be restricted as to what it can do and the size of the development. As there woudl be better areas for such a project heading out toward the West. Ideally if Disney had of been smart enough they should have bought the land that the once Australia Wonderland stood on 300 hectares of land to the West of Sydney would have been an ideal spot for it.
Published: March 4, 2008 at 8:37 AMWhy are we assuming it will be a theme park? My first thought when I read "developing "White Bay", currently a large working port up for development opposite the Sydney Harbour Bridge" was that it would be a possible port for the Disney Cruise line and another DVC resort like they're doing in Hawaii. Like Noel G said, there really isn't enough room to build a theme park there.. But then again, you could have said the same about Tokyo and Hong Kong, so you just never know with the Mouse.
