Twenty-two years ago, Disney thought they could impose an unwanted American History theme park on the people of central Virginia. They thought people wanted white-washed history with rollercoasters and battle reenactments. They thought people wouldn’t mind their plans for a massive development of apartments, hotels, and golf courses. They thought people wouldn’t notice the project’s impacts on traffic, sprawl. and the environment. They thought wrong.
