    Re: After Shanghaî, what other destinations for future Disney theme parks?

    The next Disney park after Shanghai will be in South Korea. At least that's the plan.

    I don't think Disney would have anything else planned out past Shanghai

    Personally, the fact that they want to build yet another DL park makes me sick to my stomach. ENOUGH!

    I highly doubt that. We'll see first if the Paramout and Universal parks ever get built there.

    ". . .stop trying to be a growth company"?! If it were a privately held (vs. publicly traded) company this would be possible, but now Disney executives must convince investors that the stock will become more valuable. I would rather see more excellent and unique Magic Kingdom parks all over, than see Disney executives trying to suck more and more money out of the guests at their current parks.

    Not all companies promise themselves as growth companies. You can provide shareholder value through other ways such as dividends and other means.

    The term 'growth company' exists because it is ONE CLASSIFICATION - not the only.

    I read that they were suspended due to the world economy meltdown, and there is also going to be a SeaWorld and Atlantis built. So the only other location that I can see having a Disney park, but it probably wouldn't be opened till 2030, is Dubai.

    I will be at DisneyWorld on April 29, 2011-May 4, 2011. If You Are Going The Same Time Message Me

    Re: After Shanghaî, what other destinations for future Disney theme parks?

    Having spent many years in India, I can tell you that while it would be CRITICAL for Disney to fully study the culture before making a move, India would be a MUCH easier market to break into than China. There are more English speakers in India than in the United States and they have a greater familiarity with US style entertainment. While India has its own strong culture, they also love American entertainment. So long as their own culture was woven into the park (food, morals, music, style of dress) Disney could make a real go of an Indian park.

    Much of India is very 3rd world with poverty everywhere. However, India also has a huge upper class and a growing middle class (you can partially thank the outsourcing of American jobs for that). While most Indians would never be able to afford a Disney vacation, many millions would.

    India is a big country, but most of it is very hot and humid in the Summer - think Orlando, but fairly nice in the winter. If Disney were to choose a coastal spot in the South - perhaps near Goa - they could create quite a lovely tourist destination and cruise line port. The alternative would be to build in the mountains (hill stations) of the North which are much cooler throughout the year.

    India would be a very ripe market and is popular tourist destination for many Europeans, who already flock to india looking for a mystical/spiritual vacation.

    The big downsides are terrible pollution, rampant corruption, terrorism, horrid transportation system, and unreliable utilities (electrical, water, and communications). It would certainly require that Disney create and control all of those elements in the resort district and help build an airport nearby.

    Should Disney go this route, they should give me a call. I'm an expert on both India and Disney and personally well aware of the risks and rewards of this magical/tragical country.

    This will be an interesting story to watch develop.

    Disney just needs to quit building Disney parks all over the world. What is already here is enough! They will become unspecial and become nasty like stupid Six Flags. They won't be one of a kind anymore

    Instead of building more Disney parks they should use to money to correct the Disney parks they messed up, for example- California Adventure, some of the parks at WDW, and I heard Disneyland Paris needs some help too along with Disney Hong Kong, but I think in order to change Disneyland Hong Kong it needs to be approved by the government and all that

    Where do you get this information? I don't see it with Tokyo Disney Resort next door.

    I think it will be India next, too. But that's my own speculation.
