Walt Disney World’s home in Florida seems to be more uncertain by the day, with Governor Ron DeSantis and the Walt Disney Company locked in an uncomfortable battle. Seeing the updates that come through each day has me thinking about the location in Florida and if Disney would even have the means to relocate if the inhospitable environment continues to deteriorate.
Many states across the USA would be happy to welcome the tourism and exposure that comes with hosting a Walt Disney Theme park. And though relocating an entire theme park center like Walt Disney World might seem impossible, there is also a limit to what the company can tolerate and still remain a profitable, free entity where it resides. What exactly would it take for Disney to make such an extraordinary leap? I can’t even begin to imagine. However, I can envisage a scenario that may not be too far away where Disney stop building new structures within their Orlando base and start looking at a third location elsewhere in the USA.
The more I think about it, the more it seems like a brilliant plan to me. Why continue to add to an already enormous resort when you could start making inroads into a new experience altogether? You might remember that a few months back, Universal Parks & Resorts announced that they’re planning a new theme park concept in Texas and they’re also bringing year-round horror to Las Vegas.
Let me know what you think; where would you place a third Disney theme park location within the USA?
