        If I remember correctly (and it could be a long shot here since it's been
        a really long time since I studied the chracters), in Chinese,
        "Happy" is the most common translation for the character that symbolizes
        "Joyful" and "goodwill".

        Anyway, it's just a real "positive" character to use. And since the common
        translation to english is "happy", we see "happy" a LOT.

        Similar to how in the last 10 years, tech (and others) use the "e" for "e-mail"
        and the "i" for "internet" to symbolize "coolness" or "modernity". Ex. "iPod"
        Well, extend that trend for couple hundred years and you get the gist of the idea.

        Anyway, that's my take... HKDL, feel free to correct since you read Chinese.

          If you saw how cheap everthing is in China...(goods, taxis, food etc etc) you'd be "HAPPY" too!!!

            Looks like theyre running short of Donald Costumes - That's the old horrible costume, not the 100% improved new one.

              Okay, makes a bit more sense...but like every park they open is happy world this, happy that. Lol. So I guess they are really "Goodwill World".
              Ok...
