Walt Disney Co. denied on Tuesday that it is in talks to build a theme park in Bahrain, following a newspaper report saying Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was negotiating to build an $8 billion Disney park in the heart of the world's biggest oil exporting region.
The project purportedly would be based on Disney's theme parks and could be called "Disney Bahrain," Bahrain's al-Waqt newspaper said, citing an unnamed source.
But a Disney spokeswoman said the company "is not in talks to build a theme park in Bahrain."
