L​.​A. Nightclubs That Disney Almost Built

by The Disney Dish Podcast with Jim Hill Media



Len and Jim tell the story of how Disney explored the idea of building nightclubs in Los Angeles in the early 1990's, as part of expanding the appeal of Disneyland to a younger, nighttime audience.

Documents obtained from the Buzz Price archives in Florida show that Disney considered everything from traditional rock-and-roll music clubs, to genteel "supper clubs" popular with older, wealthier clients. Disney also developed a list of pros and cons for each approach, which the guys talk through on the show.
