    Honestly, Disney does not need ANOTHER Asian park. A third would be overkill. They need to fix the problems at the home parks in the US before they even think about building another park abroad.

    Don't you find it funny that Disney is trying to get a deal done for expansion in Hong Kong, the same time as its finished a deal with Shanghai.

    Its Anaheim vs Long Beach all over again.

    There's just a fence around the perimeter of where the park will be in South Korea. Universal also has a deal to build a park in Beijing. It's going to be interesting to see how Universal polls off building two parks in the freezer (South Korea and Beijing) and one in the furnace (Dubai).

    Actually NBC Universal holds half of the stake on the Orlando resort, with the other half being owned by the Blackstone Entertainment Group.

    Universal Studios Japan is being taken off the stockmarket and is going into private hands this year with help of a financial company. NBC does not own any part of the Japan park after it sold it's stake early after the park opened.

    The other universal resorts under construction are licensee agreements only which benefits NBC via royalties much like the way Tokyo Disney is run.

    In my opinion Universal creative (who design most of the universal attractions regardless for what resort) have given Imagineering a run for their money lately and a few of the Orlando attractions are far superior to their Disney neighbor.

    I know Chinese media is not that reliable, but an official announcement on SDL appears to be imminent. A number of us saw this coming. Politics is getting easy to predict these days.

    One of the articles even mentioned the embattled HKDL expansion area, calling it "Glacier Peak", which either confirms - or is based on - Alaine Littaye's reporting.

    Malin, I can get to Anaheim from LB in about twenty to thirty minutes so I don't think that's a good comparison.

    More like Anaheim vs. Orlando I believe.

    You obviously missed Malin's point.

    Disney played the city of Anaheim against the city of Long Beach.

    Unless Anaheim bent to their will, Disney threatened they'd build the second gate in Long Beach.

    I got his point entirely so I don't think it was that obvious. Playing Anaheim versus Long Beach is entirely different that playing Anaheim versus Orlando which would be the better analogy..

    Obviously.
