Disney to build hotel-resort near Washington, D.C. PDF Print E-mail

According to USA Today and the Washington Post, Disney will put up a 500-room hotel resort near Washington D.C. within the next year or two. About 15 years ago, Disney attempted to get permission to build a big theme park in nearby Virginia. However, because it could possibly disturb some Civil War battlefields, the request was turned down.

A Disney official said the new hotel will be "a family-friendly base camp, from which visitors from around the world can explore the stirring sights and inspirational stories of our nation's capital." Although the new Disney venture won’t have any of the familiar Disney features, we have suggestions for Washington- and government-themed attractions to draw in those world travelers.

Biden as Goofy


Some would include: the McCain-Palin Hall of Never Presidents, the Supreme Food Court, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Repair Mission, Pirates of Somalia, Snow White’s Scary Adventures as Miss California, Joe Biden acts Goofy and Nancy Pelosi’s Waterboard Ride.

Look for Barack Obama’s It’s Not Such a Small World, And don’t miss Dumbo the Flying Idiot Who Had Air Force One Fly Over New York City  and the Statue of Liberty. But don’t look for the Swiss Family Robinson Tree House. The bank has foreclosed it.
