With Disneyland Resort being so close, one could assume there was a great rivalry between the Parks and their owners, but ironically, Walt Disney and Walter Knott, Knott’s founder, were great friends. Disney took a lot of Knott’s influence with him when building Disneyland and had a lot of help from his theme Park neighbor, who had over 30 years of expertise at the time. In the 1990’s Disney even tried to purchase the theme Park, but the sale never came to fruition. Now, the Park still remains highly successful under the Cedar Fair ownership.
