Hold onto your Mickey Mouse ears, Brisbane, because there's talk of a Disneyland landing on our very own Gold Coast! That's right, China's richest man, Wang Jianlin, is getting set to build a major theme park on the Goldie, and speculation as to just what this park will look like is rife. Squeal.
We do know that Jianlin's company, The Wanda Group is currently in negotiations with the State Government to build a multi-million dollar attraction at Coomera. The group, when speaking to The Gold Coast Bulletin, declined to comment on whether the park would be Disney themed, giving hope to small children and immature grown adults everywhere.
The proposed theme park is set to rival Dreamworld and Movie World, which would be a major plus for Gold Coast's tourism industry. We've got our fingers and toes crossed for a Queensland Disneyland!
