  • [Rumor] Disney in high-level talks to buy Hasbro; what could this mean for Disneyland?

    According to MTV, Disney is in high-level talks with Hasbro over acquiring the toy empire, which would add to the Disney Universe: GI Joe, My Little Pony, and Transformers.

    So what could this mean for Disneyland? I'd personally love to see a toy land somewhere in the park, including both Toy Story and original Hasbro characters.

    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based on if something is new, I reject it immediately because its frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    Movie wise this is a good thing, Toy Story will be allowed more characters and may even lead to a new TV show spin off from Toy Story

    But Theme Park wise I don't see this effecting anything, Toy Story land is not that impressive or poplar over sea's so I dont see it making it's way to Disneyland
    Happy Halloween!!!

      No worries, stay calm, one question.

            I don't think I have seen anybody use MTV as an official news source before.

                I've heard about these talks before, it seems to come up now and then because they, Disney and Hasbro, both market to kids.

                        Hopefully it won't mean anything to Disneyland. If it means more fuel for a third park (YAY! More heroes! Go Joe!). I do not want to see the Horse-drawn Streetcar pulled by pink or blue ponies.

                          USH has a transformer ride in parks around the world, so I'm sure they will retain the ride rights in the same manner just like they have Marvel rights in the eastern US.

                            I'd like to see a bizarro version of Disneyland next door to Disneyland:

                            Main Street USA could be the New York City of Marvel.
                            Aventureland could be the world of Indiana Jones.
                            New Orleans Square could be the world of Transformers.
                            Critter Country could be the world of My Little Pony/Pound Puppies.
                            Frontierland could be the world of GI Joe.
                            Fantasyland could be the world of Dungeons & Dragons.
                            Toontown could be the world of Pixar.
                            Tomorrowland could be the world of Star Wars.














                            No, I'm not serious.

                              I am pretty sure Universal has it covered.
