    A trade of attractions?

    So how come the Disney parks in the U.S trade with each other but the Theme parks around the world in tokyo and paris and the theme parks in the U.S have never seemed to trade attractions? I know we have traded with them with many of our attractions but they sure do have some rides that we dont have and some amazing shows too? Has anybody heard of any attractions or shows that might come to the U.S from tokyo or paris?

    DHS received Lights Motors Action from Walt Disney Studios Paris. Magic Kingdom previously had Tiimekeeper, which I believe was Le Visionarium from Disneyland Paris.

    I don't think they get much from Tokyo because much of what Tokyo features has roots in the American parks.
    In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate.

    I believe we got LMA and Tokyo's Cinderellabration show AND Soarin from DCA all at the same time as part of the "Happiest Celebration on Earth" promotion (aka Disneyland's 50th Anniversary).

    Some of the castle showed are scaled down versions of the ones that originated in tokyo or have some of the same music. My only guess to why DLR and WDW trade a lot is because they are both in America and are full owned by Disney whereas TDR is owned by OLC, DLP is owned by numerous banks and HKDL is owned by Hong Kong gov. But again, thats just a guess.
