This was listed in Wikipedia on April 27. It is probably a hoax by a geek with too much time on their hands, but it's fun. They claim they read it from a reliable source and paraphrased it. It has since been removed. You can find it in the Walt Disney Resort portion - View History.
As of March 17th 2011, The Walt Disney Company announced it's latest plan to create a whole new world class attraction for the Florida resort. DisneySea is set to open within the next 4 to 6 years. Based off of the Japanese Park of the same name, Tokyo DisneySea, the park will be the first foreign inspired park to make it's way to the States. The resort will encompass 176-acre (712,246 mē) and will be located in the south east corner of the resort. With the park will come two new resort hotels, one of which located inside the park, a first for the Florida resort. The ground breaking for the resort will take place in May of 2012. The park will cost $6 billion when completed making it the most expensive theme park ever built. The park is said to differ from the its Tokyo sister park in many aspects. It will focus on trills modern theme park guests thrive for and the rest of the property is lacking.
If only! Ever since having been to Tokyo DisneySea, we've been desperate for this rumour to be true. I agree, it's probably someone with too much time on their hands, but we continue to live in hope....

I've tried to reach out to the author of the DisneySea post on Wikipedia. I asked them what their source was. So far, I haven't heard from him/her. If I ever find out anything about it, I'll post it here.
March 17th, 2011 was important for Disney. There was a massive earthquake in Japan and Disney had to close stores and parks. There were at that time announcements of Disney donating to charity for earthquake relief.
I did a search and found a couple of boards quoting the info but did not find it in Wiki. I am not sure how Disney could wedge a new park that is the exact same size as Tokyo DisneySea. Tokyo DisneySea is not that popular so why make a new park based on a park that is not a mega hit. Probably someone was testing the Pina Colavas and lost count before working on the wiki.
psst, little tip: if there is anything new in any Disney park or more properties then somewhere someone is posting information. Look at Harry Potter land in Universal and Carsland in DCA.
Mom calls to check on me and reminded me to pay the gardener. I love her so much.
Disneyland was fun with flag retreat and pickles. I have a home here, thank you. GAC is NOT a "front of the line pass".
She is gone but keeping signature. Laundry is getting done. My purpose in life is to help poor people in FL. Farewell, will miss you.
DisneySea is one of the most popular theme parks in the world. It was a hit from the start. Unlike California Adventure, they did DisneySea right - the first time. The Oriental Land Co. spent as much as was needed on the park. Disney would also not have to spend as much on research and development since the attractions have already been built and the designs are available.
