    Well I guess it wasn't anything monumental or else we would've heard by now.

    ^Supposedly it was live at noon (Eastern) so I presume it went ahead.

    This was a false piece of information from the Orlando Sentinel. Iger didn't say anything concerning Disneyland Paris. It was too beautiful to be true. As an American, he doesn't believe in Europe at all.

    ^I'd argue against that. After all, as we'd already discussed in this thread the company should and does have an interest in making sure that its name is being represented correctly, no matter where in the world it is.

    Trying to look on the bright side, I guess it wasn't the right place to make any sort of announcement. No matter if it was something relatively small (like a large investment) or something huge (such as a buyout of EuroDisney) there's a good chance that it would be done in a corporate manner with a either a conference call to investors or a press conference.

    That's not to say that either of those is going to happen right now, but at least we can hope that it will. Plus with the petition being relatively public (with articles in the UK press and no doubt European press) they can't just dismiss it as a product of fandom. Or can they?

    It was an interview on an American business station, with the American CEO of an American media conglomerate. I don't know why people expected them to seriously discuss a relatively small European company that has had plenty of financial woes in its short history.

    If nothing else, this false rumour at least breathed a bit of life in the almost-dead DLP forum here!

    ^Haha that it certainly did. Guess the thread title needs a little adjustment now.

    Nah - leave it. The DLP needs all the help it can get to attract any attention at all.

    I think this is a good idea because the value of property in the France continues to remain stable and is now moving in a positive direction. Villas and apartments in the France boast a strong rental market due to the fact that the vast majority of French citizens rent their homes for fixed terms of 3 years, and this creates a healthy demand for rental property in most major cities and indeed villages further inland such as villas in Valbonne and Mougins. Meanwhile many holiday destinations such as Cannes, Nice, Antibes and these inland villages are still in need of tourist accommodation to satisfy an increasing number of annual tourist arrivals to the French Riviera and the France.I believe that Disneyland will do great..There !!!
