In January 1987, Disney Development Corporation (DDC) retained the Harrison Price Company (HPC) to conduct a consulting assignment with three principal objectives: 1. To test the feasibility of a Backlot Studio/Attraction Concept at Golden Oak Ranch and, if the ranch proved unsuitable, to evaluate other locations for an entertainment industry-related attraction in Southern California. 2. To evaluate alternative leisure time development opportunities at Golden Oak Ranch. 3. To discuss and comment on opportunities for new Disney attractions in Southern California. Pertinent findings of this study are presented in Section 2, the Executive Summary. Section 3 examines key market and site issues conditioning development opportunities at Golden Oak Ranch. In Section 4, the Backlot Attraction concept is evaluated, preliminary attendance and financial projections set forth, and alternative development concepts for the ranch discussed. Section 5 takes a broad look at opportunities for a Disney entertainment-industry related attraction, as well as other attraction opportunities in Southern California.
