California’s first non-berry or -mouse related theme park is up for sale.
ANAHEIM, CA — Rumors have swirled for years about the Disneyland Resort adding a third park. Proposed locations have ranged from the Toy Story parking lot on Katella, to the Cast Member parking lot on Katella, to the Honda Center parking lot on Katella, to just having one long thin park down the length of Katella.
Uncle Walt’s Insider is happy to announce that none of those will be needed. Sources tell us that the Disney Company is looking to acquire L.A.’s famous Walley World park.
“De facto third gate”
Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation), in a conference call with Walley (the company) spokesperson Jun Walley (related), confirm the rumors.
“It solves so many problems,” one of the Juns says. [They sound alike.] “It’s a de facto third gate for Disneyland, brings Marty Moose and all the beloved Walley characters into the Disney stable, and makes the Walley family a ton of money. Cha-ching!” [Okay, it was Jun Walley.]
Imagineers are currently said to be expanding the planned Disneyland Skyliner to connect the parks. We’ll keep you post.
Do you think the author’s parents named him after Marty Moose? Comment below!
