Disney World Padre Island?

Todays' paper(Oct. 16,2007) has a story about market research being done by a Florida media group at the behest of Paul Shexnailder, the millionaire Austin developer who sparked last year's fight over closing of some public beaches to vehicles to allow him to build a huge, foreign financed, beach resort on North Padre Island. A Florida consulting firm, i.d.e.a.s.,based at Disney studios, held a focus group to gauge public support for development on the Shexnailder properties that have been at the center of the beach dispute for several years now.
Though no direct connection with Disney is yet known, speculation abounds as to what may be in store for these properties.
