    Dubailand?

    Currently, the largest amusement park collection in the world is the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, which is also the largest single-site employer in the United states with 58,000 employees

    Dubailand will be twice the size.


    Dubailand will be built on 3 billion square feet (107 miles^2) at an estimated $20 billion price tag. The site will include a purported 45 mega projects and 200 hundred other smaller projects.





    Currently, the Walt Disney World Resort is the #1 tourist destination in the world. Once fully completed, Dubailand will easily take over that title since it is expected to attract 200,000 visitors daily.

    I have zero interest in going to the Middle East. Slight chance of Egypt, but the other countries? No chance.

    Disney as a company has characters and an unbelievably strong sense of being an American Tradition, I would be really surprised if an unknown theme park in the middle east could top it.

    So true. I can handle the heat for a while but add fanatics and possible bombings. I kinda lose interest then.

    Plus seeing where your gas money went and all the expensive things because oil is so high priced. Not fun!

    Here's the problem with this - American tradition. Dubialand isn't banking on American tourists. There's plenty of other richer people who live much closer who Dubai will be happy to have visit. Disney needs to watch out as it might see it's European visitors begin to disappear.
