There's no doubt that the British love visiting WDW and Orlando. On a recent trip up there, there were British tourists everywhere. Knowing that the British like Disney and frequent the U.S. parks, why didn't they build EuroDisney in the UK ? Why in the world did they choose France, where they abhor American culture? Didn't they see this disaster coming? It's only now that Disneyland Paris is starting to become successful.
Was the UK even considered? I know in the end it was up to Spain (Barcelona?) and Paris.
[EDIT: Also, surprisingly even after the name to Disneyland Pairs...EVERYBODY still calls it Euro Disney. Why why why?]
