How to buy 27,000 acres of land and no one notice

A friend sent this, and it is pretty interesting:

Walt Disney World History 101 - How to buy 27,000 acres of land and no one notice

It relates to the idea of "what do you do once you find an idea that really resonates."

From the article:
    Today, Disneyland encompasses fewer than 300 acres, which includes Disney's California Adventure and additional hotel properties. Relatively speaking, all of Disneyland could fit inside of Epcot.

    Regrettably, Walt Disney did not buy enough land surrounding Disneyland, and soon after the park opened it was surrounded by tacky hotels, tourist gift shops and restaurants. His dream of a completely contained theme park for families was now tainted with views of billboards and fast-food restaurants. Walt vowed that if he ever built another theme park, he would not make the same mistake twice.
Which leads to the obvious question: "But how does Walt Disney go and buy up thousands of acres of land without the landowners holding out for exorbitant prices?" The article contains the answer to that question.
