In a stunning move that took the real estate market in Marbella by surprise last night, Disney announced that they were making a bid to develop Marbella’s beleaguered Al Thani Port project.
Under the terms of the new bid Marbella’s port, that was orginally going to be developed into a luxury cruise liner port complete with 6 star hotel and high end shopping malls, will become a water based theme park based on movies from the Pixar studios such as “Toy Story”
“Pixar Port will be the theme park holiday destination that has been talked about in southern Spain for decades but until now has failed to materialise” said a Disney spokesperson. ” Marbella has the fantastic climate, the infrastructure and is already a hugely popular destination for tourists, so taking over the Al Thani Port project and developing in in the same way as our other parks makes perfect sense. There is also synergy between Pixar movies, and Marbella – the luxury car market with “Cars”, fine dining with “Ratatouille” and, as we are on water, we are especially looking forward to the “Finding Nemo” area of Pixar Park.
A Marbella Town Hall spokesperson commented “We are tremendously excited by the Pixar Port project, This is no Toy Story. It really will take Marbella`To Infinity and Beyond'”.
