Every single child dreams of visiting Disneyland- a place where cartoons come alive, and where miniature castles, bridges, snowparks and giant wheels transport them into an another world, completely cut off from practicalities outside. But Indian parents have to think twice before they can materialize their children’s cherished dream as it involves a lot of travel expenses and time off from the tight schedules of jobs. Very soon, this concern will become a matter of the past. Namma Bengaluru (yes you heard it right!) is soon going to be adorned with a Disneyland of its own where Indians can realize their long treasured dream of visiting this theme park for a lifetime travel experience.
The latest world of news has sent us into a state of ecstasy as it comes out that the Government of Karnataka has pounced upon the idea of forming an alliance with Disney studios to gift us with our own Disneyland in Bengaluru. So the happiest city is grappling ahead to become happier with this cherry on the cake theme park, akin to the one in Paris.
The very first question that would come to your mind as you descend from the dizzying heights of this initial news is that why Bengaluru is the "chosen one”? Well, those who stay here, would give you plenty of reasons for the same. Yes, the city boasts of an absolutely stunning weather, that most of the other places in India can only dream of. It doesn’t have the mind numbing chillness of Delhi winters, neither the humidity of Mumbai’s streets nor the scorching heat of Chennai Summers.
What's Stopping You From Travel?

If that is not a reason enough to please you, then mind you that the proposed location is another reason that can suffice for Bengaluru’s priority. Location would be either Devanahalli or along Bengaluru-Tumakuru road, a place that boasts of being one of the most planned locations in Bengaluru rendering both scenic as well as strategic purposes.
So apart from Wonder La, Innovative Film City on Mysore Road and Fun World near Palace Grounds, Bengaluru will offer something more dazzling to tourists from India as well as abroad, becoming the next hotspot for tourism in India.
