From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo:
Walt Disney considered putting his second theme park in Niagara Falls.
The Niagara News reports that when Walt Disney was exploring locations for a second “Disneyland” after the success of his park in California, he considered Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:
Once in Niagara we found a hotel room a couple of blocks from Clifton Hill and the Falls themselves. Now if mention of Niagara Falls conjures up images of romance and classy rendezvous, it was rather shocking to see the Falls as backdrop to Clifton Hill, a cheesy replica of something from an amusement park. It strongly reminded Shannon of Universal Studios or Disneyland. Her exact words “It doesn’t fit the image of Niagara Falls. The two don’t go together.” Only in Clifton Hill would you see a pirate flag on top of the House of Frankenstein.
