      Just wondering, would anyone go to a DLR in India? I mean, we're willing to go to Hong Kong and Paris and so forth. Who would go to India?

            Hmmm... I don't think Aladdin takes place in India.

              Disneyland India? The company has now hit a new low. I think Aladin takes place in Arabia btw.

                The link you posted no longer seems to be working- a valid link to the article is here:

                And remember, Disney did not actually try to purchase any land to anyone's knowledge, they have just been looking at India as another location.

                Keep in mind, 1/6th of the world's population resides in India- its not such a crazy idea!

                  It'd be a good move for Disney--a lot of people and a much better climate than Hong Kong and its black rains have...Delhi has a very rainy July and August but the rest of the year is dry and hot...not bad at all. I wonder what the breakdown of the population in India is by socioeconomic status though...how many of its billion people can actually afford Disney?

                    At present its a small percentage of India's population that is "middle class", but that percentage is growing quickly. And even if its only 10%, that would be 100,000,000 potential customers. I believe that could be possible by 2010.

                      I think it's a good idea for all the outsourced countries that are making all the Disney product (including the animation), get to finally experience Disney, if not buy the very souvenirs they're making!

                        Most definitely a better idea, and longer life span than Hong Kong. India will soon be a strong country, they are much more stable than China is, and most people would probably (and do) enjoy vacations in India rather than in Hong Kong. Business travelers go to china, you don't go there on vacation. Anyway, I'm not too hip on Disney having a park in an extremely oppressive, communist country like China. India is a true partner for the free world in the future. China is not. In fact, I think China will collapse, within 10 years (probably less).
                        There is a fast growing middle-class in India, there is not in china. There are the very rich, and the very poor there. 98% of chinese will never set foot inside a disney park. And this is not changing much other than getting more extreme.

                          Maybe some of us could move there and open up 7-Elevens.

                          My fondest memory of Walt Disney was the day Disneyland opened....I was standing next to him - I was 12 years old - he was looking at the gate where people were coming through, he had his hands behind his back, he had a grin from ear to ear, but you could see the lump in his throat and the tear coming down his cheek because his dream had been realized. -- Mouseketeer Sharon Baird, "Mouseke-Memories", Walt Disney Treasures: The Mickey Mouse Club

                            A Disney park in India is a HORRIBLE idea (but then HK is ridiculous too), but that @hole Eisner doesn't care about anything but stuffing as much cash in his back pocket as he can before he finally leaves.
