DISNEY PONDERING THEME PARK IN BOSTON; TIE- IN WITH MEGAPLEX?
Published August 8, 1995
Walt Disney Co. is looking at Boston's waterfront as a possible location for a new entertainment complex, according to Meg Vaillancourt in the BOSTON GLOBE. Stephen Tocco, Exec Dir of the MA Port Authority said Disney officials toured the South Boston waterfront last week "and would return for a closer look within the next two weeks." Tocco is "encouraging the company to explore development plans both in conjunction with a megaplex and independent of the proposed convention center and attached domed stadium." Tocco: "They are interested in sports and entertainment and are interested in theme park opportunities outside of California and Florida." Megaplex critics downplayed Disney's "possible interest," saying other big corporate names have been "floated" as possible investors (BOSTON GLOBE, 8/8).
