Walt Disney World update: More rooms, more stores... and a gas war!
A couple stories out of Walt Disney World today:
First, Disney has confirmed the news that Kevin Yee reported last year, that there will be a new Downtown Disney-style mixed use development on the Western Beltway, for "value conscious" visitors. (As the All-Star Resorts were to the Contemporary and Polynesian, this will be to Downtown Disney, it appears.)
In addition, Disney will partner with the now Bill Gates-co-owned Four Seasons on a hotel to to open in 2010. As part of the development, the Osprey Ridge golf course will be rebuilt and rebranded as a Four Seasons property.
But the story you *really* want to talk about comes from Disney's Animal Kingdom. Lemme defer to the Orlando Sentinel's lead of the day:
A tussle between two workers in the hippo pond at Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom overnight ended with one man doused in gasoline and the other in jail, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
Here's the rest of the story.
Well making a Gas Station is probably pretty smart, but value retail? Are they going to build a Walmart? I am not really understanding what good this will do for them.
Sorry, i know this has nothing to do with the disney bulletin, but i am pretty pissed off right now with the editor of this site. I want to know why isnt Mr. Robert Niles posting the news i had about Busch Gardens Africa? As far as i know i did abide by the guidelines for writers and it is news that I know that the public at large want to know and that i havent seen anyone else post that specific news anywhere else on this site. Help me out people....he's not responding to my emails either. Maybe with a little public support i can get my answer.
I think you need to relax!
You are probably right and let me guess, he was too busy to write an email to me stating that very same thing...? I have all the respect in the world for Mr. Niles and i meant no disrespect to him. I appreciate the messages he does put out. I understand that things probably get busy. You say that not too many people get put on the front page, i havent seen since i got an account here, anyone else other than Mr. Niles on the front page.
Are you new?
Gee, Iris, maybe it was because we posted that story
LOL! Now Iris, please put down that can of gasoline. Robert, put out your cigarette and run for it!! How's that for getting the thread back on topic? At least I made the hippos laugh. :)
Does this gas fight remind anybody of Zoolander?
