So, Disney is turning into the international park builder? I guess that is a good thing. Even their highest criticized parks are known for high quality and are thought better of than a lot of other 'good' regional parks.

One day, I'll hit every Disney park.

Jeff's avatar Asia has emerging markets everywhere, and American businesses are finally realizing that and doing something about it. Makes sense to me. Instead of crying about a trade deficit, exploit the new markets and make money!

If anybody is to do it, and do it successful, it will be Disney. Even under Eisner, they were still a force to be reconed with.
