That was wonderful! Bravo! I loved that! Ah, that was great! Well, it was pretty good. Well, it wasn't bad. Uh, there were parts of it that weren't very good though. It could have been a lot better. I didn't really like it. It was pretty terrible. It was bad. It was awful! It was terrible! Take 'em away! Boo! Boo!
There's no way this is happening. Remember the French's first reaction to EuroDisney? Multiply that by about five thousand. A blatantly American institution, which represents virtually everything extremists in that part of the world despise (not to say they're all extremists, mind you), in the Middle East? The thing might as well have giant targets on all the walls. Disney knows better than to invest money and reputation in such an unstable part of the world; it's the same reason they generally only build parks in areas with moderate weather conditions, which the Middle East doesn't have either.
Chalk this one up with about as much credit as the earlier rumors of Singapore and Indonesia.
Forget 'Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln,' Samantha Brown is Disney's most sophisticated animatronic. ________________________________________

The sheik may very well be getting the money together to build a Disney-like park, but I doubt that Disney will work with them to make it an actual Disney park. They could probably pay for Disney consulting work, but it would be cheaper to hire Michael Jackson.
MiceChat 101: Be NICE! If you don't play well with others, you are in the wrong sandbox.
why couldnt it be like tokyo? someone else own it but license the brand name? that makes more sense then disney wouldn't lose money and the prince could have what he wants. a disney park to employ all those poor people so he can keep more of his oil money.
