    What does Viacom know ...

    ... That Disney does not?

    Interesting how Viacom, which sold its US Paramount-branded parks, is making a deal with the Chinese government for parks in multiple cities, including Shanghai ... sorta makes you wonder what Viacom's Sumner Redstone knows about negotiating that Bob Iger's park lackeys don't?.

    Oh well, it's likely for the best as it will take Disney another 10-15 years to make HKDL the kind of park it should be now anyway ...

    I also wondered that myself when I heard about Paramount's deal. But I think they're just licensing their film theme park rights, they're not actually building park themselves. Ala Oriental Land Company and Tokyo Disneyland Resort, right?

    They are talking about licensing, yes.
