I wouldn't put on your dancing shoes yet. Did you notice this was posted the day before April 1st? Don't you think this would be bigger news? Come on.

It's a spoof, the latter being old news. I'm surprised that spoof site is still up. And can't believe some people are still falling for it:

You mean the "Disney's Winter Wonderland" project, where all the buildings will be carved out of ice, and the Matterhorn bobsleds will be REAL bobsleds?

Come on, I'm sure it's in the blue sky file cabinet somewhere, right next to the Disney in New England project my dad promised me was coming as a kid

There are people around here who were convinced that Disney bought Mt Wachusett for that purpose

This is still the talk of the town here in The Woodlands. It was an April fools joke from last year. It resurfaced and I haven't run into one person who hasn't brought it up. As much as we wish it was true it isn't so.

I was living in Houston in the 80s and there were rumors that Disney was buying land just north of Houston for a new theme park. The theme park part was true, but of course the Disney part wasn't. Turned how to be Hanna Barbera Land that lasted all of 2 years before it was sold and turned into a water park.

I'm from the CT coastline, grew up near New Haven and I remember a rumor as a kid that Disney was interested in land there for a park. There was a small amusement park at our beach that closed the year I was born so it wouldn't be inconceivable to build there. I've never been able to find concrete evidence though that CT was ever considered.
