I don't think it was a rumor, but a guess the HPCrazy that made since he said the Boardwalk looks Disney-like.trumpetplayer105 wrote:I dont know where the rumor started but thats all it was. HersheyPark is owned by HERCO, (Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Company).
I personally knew it wasn't possible from the very beginning becasue why would Disney want to have a market up here in northeast when they have a couple other parks around the world? The Boardwalk does look detailed, but they basically shopped at the same place that Outback Steakhouse and Red Lobster shop at: Nautical Furnishings. Disney more than likely makes their own things were most of the thing the park picked up are actual objects that were collected (the lighthouse, bouy, boat, netting, etc).
Plus, if Disney did own them, we'd posssibly be paying $75 to enter and have a big castle instead of the Kissing Tower.
