|This topic is for Discussion of Latest: More Rumors of a Star Wars Boutique Park for Walt Disney World (POLL)|
The Disney Gossip blog is reporting Disney is working on a boutique park for Walt Disney World with a Star Wars theme that would start at $200 per day. The Disney and More blog follows that up with info on a Star Wars addition rumored to be coming to Disneyland Paris and how that might related to the Disney World rumors. Would you like to see a park, as described there, go to Walt Disney World?

|I personally think a Star Wars themed anything should be accessible to the masses, not only to those willing to shell out $200 for the experience. Star Wars has mass appeal and the disappointment of tens of thousands, conservatively, who may not be able to afford the experience would be ugly.|
I know there are a lot of people who can't afford Disney period, and I understand that argument, but this should be more accessible.
I'd rather seem them build an entire Fantasy themed gate with Star Wars, Marvel, and maybe even Avatar as lands.

|No way would I pay $200 for a boutique park experience... not for Star Wars or anything else.|

|I seriously doubt this would happen. Disney could open a legitimate Star Wars land in a park and make 200 on food and merchandise alone, plus the park's admission.|

|At first $200 sounded crazy, but then I remembered that a single day admission to Disney's US parks is hovering right around $100 now and the places are overflowing with guests to the point that they are closing the gates on some days. I'm sure there are enough SW geeks out there that would pay top dollar for a premium SW theme park experience, but I doubt that this rumor is true.|

|I would pay that. I an SW geek and I have done the other parks so many times. Iw would make my experience better for me. When I went to Hawaii I paid $200.00 for a helicopter flight over Oahu. so to me it would be worth it.|

|The problem with "Star Wars geeks" is that |
A) There is a limited supply of them
B) How many are willing to spend 200 to get into a park? I'm guessing very little.
It's not like Discovery Cove that has a wide pool of people to draw in. A 200 dollar Star Wars park has a very, very limited draw.

|What makes a park a "Boutique" park?|
What extra benefits are you getting?

|It seems to me that with all of the tens of thousands of people at the WDW resort daily, it would only create bad feelings and resentment for the majority of people that go there and opt not to pay the extra $200 per person charge to get into the Star Wars park. |
Think about all the money they spent to come to the WDW resort, eat there, park tickets, hotels, etc.
You ask that many peope to spend that much money and then tell them certain parks are off limits cause they didn't pay enough? It will create lots of resentment for the majority of the park guests to cut out whole parks from their availability.

Smaller crowds, capped admission numbers, more personalized experience, you get to shoot Greedo for yourself.
