    I think fantasizing is ok, especially with stuff related to Disney!

    Actually, from everything I've seen (admittedly not much), TDR draws from the Tokyo metropolitan area and some from Kansai and the rest of Japan, not China.

    Vast majority of TDR's customers are Japanese. Very few Chinese visit TDR who in turn will comprise a vast majority of the SDL's customers. So very little impact either way.

    Re: Where could TDR build a THIRD PARK?

    I've heard differing reports from my friends in Japan about the number of Chinese visitors to the Tokyo Disney Resort: everything from 10% to 30%. I can see that the 30% is not true just from personal experience, however I do see far more Chinese (or should I say, that I hear far more Chinese) than I see or hear western people.

    Re: Where could TDR build a THIRD PARK?

    OLC's official Theme Park report states that for the period of 4/12-3/13 2.6% of TDR's Guests were from overseas.

    Since the other 97.4% of Guests are from Japan and overseas Guests include all other countries, the percentage of Guests from China is less that 2.6%.

    The report doesn't break down the overseas Guests by country, but my guess is the vast majority of the 2.6% are from China or other Asian countries. My guess would be that less than one percent are from western countries.

    Based on the data I don't think that HKDL or SHDL will have much of any affect on the attendance at TDR.

    Just FYI if interested....

    Overseas Guest percentage data from OLC annual report
    3/2008 - 4.2%
    3/2009 - 3.2%
    3/2010 - 2.8%
    3/2011 - 3.3%
    3/2012 - 1.3%
    3/2013 - 2.6%

    Thanks, Roger!

    However, Fukai, I completely agree that I hear people speaking mandarin (guonhua) much more than I see Westerners.

    I also wonder how they count overseas guests. It's not that you have to register some details with a ticket.

    Re: Where could TDR build a THIRD PARK?

    TDR guest numbers have nothing to do with how many park they have in China. The parks in China are aimed at a totally different market than the parks in Japan.

    Even if China open a third Disney Resort and India a first it will not hurt Tokyos Disney parks in any way at all.

    Most of the Chinese (more specifically mandarin) being spoken at TDR is probably coming from Taiwanese guests. Unlike China, Taiwan has generally friendly relations with Japan and their citizens receive visa exempt status.
