Disney's America was a planned theme park that was to have been built by The Walt Disney Company in the early 1990s. The park was planned to be built near Haymarket, Virginia, only from the site of the Manassas National Battlefield Park near Interstate 66 west of Washington, D.C.. Announced in November 1993, the park was to have been dedicated to the history of the United States and was scheduled to open by 1998 with a planned budget. Amid opposition from citizen's groups, however, the project was canceled in September 1994. The concept was revived in 1997 as a potential re-theming of Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, when the Knott family offered its amusement park for sale. However, the Knott family refused to sell its park to Disney, largely due to concerns over what Disney would do to the property, and the project was canceled again. Several of the proposed elements of Disney's America were incorporated into Disney's California Adventure, which opened in 2001.
