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

Not true! Nice generalization.

Ha right, I know what you mean. I live in Missouri and ever since I was a child I also heard rumors about Disney buying up a lot of property by Branson and building a park near there.

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

Well, we did have the "original" Pleasure Island in Wakefield, called the "Disneyland of the Northeast" in it's day (closed 1969).

At least we're not rude.

I enjoy these rumors when they pop up. The Renaissance Festival sight north of Houston is supposed to be the location sometimes too.
