If you happen to be traveling to Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England, this weekend, you're in for quite a treat.
The name is a dark play on Disneyland. But it's also the title of a 2012 Banksy artwork, which means this project has likely been in the works for quite a while.
Security had been really tight on the project, and locals had been told the site was a movie set for a film called "Grey Fox."
But people had reportedly spotted Banksy's rumored manager, Holly Cushing, on the construction site.
The Bristol Post also reported Cushing set up a company called Dismaland Ltd. with Banksy's rumored accountant, Simon Durban, in May.
Banksy told The Guardian he isn't trying to attack Mickey and his friends — at least not too much.
He said, "It's a showcase for the best artists I could imagine, apart from the two who turned me down."
The exhibit features dull colors and a lot of sarcasm. For example, the remote-controlled boats are filled with figures representing immigrants.
Banksy told the Weston Mercury, "I hope everyone from Weston will take the opportunity to once more stand in a puddle of murky water eating cold chips to the sound of crying children."
