Disney fans petition for Disneyland in Australia

Disney fans are calling on the Walt Disney Company to create a Disneyland theme park in Australia.

They are doing so via a petition titled ‘Time for Australia to have our very own Disneyland!’

The company already has attractions across the globe, including Disneyland (California), Walt Disney World Resort (Florida), and Disneyland Paris.

It has three more resorts in Asia, which are Tokyo Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disney Resort.

However, one fan has created a petition on asking the Walt Disney Company to launch a ‘down under’ Disneyland.

Will there be a Disneyland ‘down under’?

The petition, called ‘Time for Australia to have our very own Disneyland!’, states: “They think Australia just simply doesn’t have the population to support a Disney Park and tourism market wouldn’t do enough to fill in the gaps.

“I beg to differ. I believe Australia HAS the population, not to mention the international tourism it would create as well, and the tourism market to make it just as successful as other Disneyland’s around the world.”

The petition has had nearly 1,000 signatures at the time of writing. You can sign the petition here if you want an Aussie version of Disneyland.

Meanwhile, Disneyland Resort president Ken Potrock has revealed that construction is underway on Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, set to open in California in 2023.

Additionally, Disneyland treated Marvel fans to a sneak peek at the park’s latest themed land, Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure.

The Walt Disney Company has been hit hard by the pandemic, recently revealing its Parks, Experiences and Products segment took a $3.5 billion hit on operating income due to COVID-19.
