    "We should have built Euro Disney in Spain. The site that the Imagineers had chosen there had far better weather. More to the point, this area already had a strong tourism-based economy in place, a pool of people going-on-holiday that we could have pulled our Guests from. Plus a great rail system..... But the French offered Eisner far better financial terms. They were willing to give the Company all sorts of financial incentives and tax breaks if we built this project in France rather than in Spain. So in the end, Michael chose the scheme over the dream."

    Project Background
    This is the second volume to the hit brainstorming thread Walt Disney World 1966 , which has recently finished it's Phase 1 construction.

    In that respect, I'm bringing this new project to the forum, for a new plan for the EuroDisney Project from the ground up. We're gonna Keep Moving Forward and open new doors!

    The Prompt

    The year is 1985, the decision has been made in Roy's favor to have Euro Disney Resort in Spain. As a team, what do we do and where do we start?

    Does it rain in Spain?

    Yes, it stays mainly in the plain.

    I've never been to Spain so my knowledge on that aspect isn't the best. But, I have been to DLP so I can provide some insight on what works there and what doesn't.

    The rain goes down the drain - we should start by building a connecting train.

    But in all seriousness - Europe is famous for their trains...a connecting railroad would probably be needed.

    Barcelona and Madrid are the only two cities I know in Spain -- so that should be good:p

    I am indeed very familiar with DLP! It's the park I grew up with, a lot of my earliest theme park memories are there! I watched along with the last project and I'd be pretty excited to join in a little on this one, I've never done one of these open brainstorming things before!

    Awesome! The open brainstorming threads are fun! No due dates - just throwing around some concepts:)
