Comrades, I am pleased to report that the next Disneyland will be built in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. This is straight from the Newslab website, which any child can tell you is the place to go if you want to know where the action is in downtown Krasnoyarsk. Check it, it’s gold:
Disneyland to be built in Krasnoyarsk
Disneyland will be built in Krasnoyarsk by 2012. It was announced by Krasnoyarsk deputy mayor Anatoly Grigorenko at the news conference on October 30. Grigorenko said it was planned to build the children park in the area of Northern Highway, which held much promise for construction.
Disneyland Krasnoyarsk: it just rolls off the tongue. A quick Wikipedia search tells me that Krasnoyarsk is the third largest city in Siberia and a significant junction on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Its January mean temperature is four degrees below zero, which is more or less perfect for, oh, FREEZING TO DEATH.
Either the WaltDisCo has been putting out feelers for mainland China purely as a diversionary tactic, or I’ve discovered the Russian equivalent of the Onion. “Area deputy mayor fellated.”
