Turkey is to build a Disneyland resort near Oren, 35 kilometres south east of Milas, Disneyland Turkey, which will rival Eurodisney Paris, will be situated 90 minutes from Didim. The complex is expected to be constructed in 2 years and planning was completed after officials visited Eurodisney Paris and Germany’s Heidi Park. It will be built over an area of 1.3m square metres and will employ a “cast” of almost 17,000 staff.
Official Disney planner mentioned "This will be bigger than the Disneyland resort in Paris."
He also stated that there will be 5 hotels of up to 7 stars; a marina is also being built close to the resort. Animation, cartoons, heroes, entertainment facilities, Turkish-Ottoman & Selcuk architectural examples are projected to attract an estimated 12,000 visitors daily. People will be able to visit the Turkish Disneyland via the marina. There will also be scheduled ferry services from selected locations direct to the fun park, all exciting stuff.
Well if the Turks build it, poor disney will be suing for the completion certificate, suing for damp, suing for being late and probably suing for finding out they don't own the land its built on :77wu:
The roads in and out of Oren are appalling. The ceramic factory have refused an offer to pay for relocation. The villagers in Oren were offered 8 million US and turned it down. The electricity generator has also declined an offer to be re housed.
Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Jim Morrison, are rumoured to be doing the opening night in 2062.
The rumour has been doing the rounds for a while, but it is apparently going to be the Turkish equivalent of a Disneyland resort, not the real thing.
So, expect Mehmet mouse, Deniz duck, buildings with no military clearance, no tapus, poor workmanship, loads of friends of friends selling various parts of the establishment and loads of people complaining that they should not have booked 'off plan' !
