DISNEY PONDERING THEME PARK IN BOSTON; TIE- IN WITH MEGAPLEX?

     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).
