The space occupied by the now defunct Ontario Place presents the best opportunity for a Disney theme park in Canada. Why Disney Should Build Its Next Park in Toronto: 1. The combined area of Ontario Place and Exhibition Place is 328.870 acres, larger than many of Disney's resorts, including DisneyLand Park in Anaheim, California. 2. DisneyLand Park attracted 23,738,000 visitors in 2012, while only 880,001 people visited Ontario Place in 2011. Those attendance numbers shouldn't be expected, however, a substantial increase in attendance would likely take place. 3.The City if Toronto is surrounded by several large municipalities, each with hundreds of thousands of residents. Over 8 million people live within driving distance of the City. To put that into perspective, Anaheim has a population of only 336,265 people. 4. 108 million Americans live within nine hours of Toronto around 35 per cent of the U.S. population, which is expected to grow to 141 million by 2050. 5. Toronto is a very diverse city, and a Disney theme park in Toronto would attract many international visitors. 6. A Disney Theme Park would push Toronto above and beyond the likes of New York, L.A., Chicago, etc.
