Disney fans in Latin America are going to be disappointed to know that their dreams of having their own Disney theme park faded away like Ariel's tail. The rumor was that the Disney Corporation was planning to build Latin America's first Disney Park in Costa Rica. Liberia mayor Luis Gerardo Castañeda appeared on the Costa Rican morning show "Buen Día" and announced that Disney had purchased land in Costa Rica with the intention of building a theme park. Disney put an end to those rumors like midnight put an end to Cinderella's spell.

Latin America's numerous Disney fans were excited about the idea of a park being built. The Facebook page "Disneyland Costa Rica" generated 14,000 likes in 24 hours. Yesterday the page read that Mayor Castañeda had confirmed the park would be built on a 7,000-acre piece of property located near the airport. The Facebook post said Disney already owned the land and was in the process of obtaining business and building permits. "Enter a magical kingdom where you can sail with pirates, explore exotic jungles, meet fairytale princesses [and] dive under the ocean through the stars," reads the page.

Disney Destinations public relations manager Sarah Domenech released a statement saying the rumors of a park anywhere in Latin America are untrue. "What I can say right now is that the news is completely false. At Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, we continually look for ways to grow our business and as part of that process, we have conversations with many different entities. While Costa Rica is an attractive market, we have no plans for the region at this time."
