DisneySea was a proposed amusement park designed by Disney that was planned to open at the proposed Port Disney complex in Long Beach, California. Port Disney was part of the "Disney Decade" plan of expansion in the 1990s, and was competing with the WestCOT proposal to add a "second gate" to the Disneyland Resort complex in Anaheim, California. The "second gate" was eventually built on the site of the former Disneyland parking lot as Disney California Adventure. DisneySea was unveiled to the public on July 31, 1990. A pamphlet, the Port Disney News, was distributed to Long Beach residents in September 1991 detailing plans for DisneySea, including the goal of "[enabling] everyone to experience the 'marvels of nature′s secret world beneath the sea' and to gain firsthand experience of how the oceans affect human life as well as the life of the planet." Disney elected to pursue the WestCOT proposal instead of Port Disney in December 1991, and some of the concepts developed for DisneySea were eventually built at Tokyo DisneySea, which opened in 2001.
