I want to be really careful in asking this because I don't want to offend anyone, but a friend and I from school were talking about this today and I did not have a good answer to a question he asked me about Disneyland Paris.
By his account, and by what I read often in many forums, Disneyland Paris seems to be the least popular Disney park and also seems to make the least amount of money for Disney. My friend asked if I thought Disney would ever shutter Disneyland Paris if the economy got too bad that it was not making enough money to keep going.
I personally can't imagine a Disney Park closing unless something cataclysmic happened like a Second Great Depression or a war in France...I think all the parks will be open as long as the Disney company still exists.
Does anyone have an opinion on this?
I don't mean it to be a gloomy topic but I'm in grad school taking economics courses and marketing classes and Disney is a company we study a lot so this question came up because of an assignment we had and I honestly don't know what to think about the idea of Disneyland Paris ever shutting down for economic reasons.
