  • U.S. firms aim to learn theme parks' local culture - Los Angeles Times, 4/3/08

    http://www.latimes.com/news/la-fi-nu...,2483505.story


    Although U.S. companies' international theme parks contain many of the elements that made them famous, they all have to adapt -- at least in some way -- to the local culture.

    Consider Disney's learning experiences: When its Paris park opened, it banned alcohol but offered a variety of gourmet, sit-down restaurants. But Parisians wanted their Chardonnay -- and American fare.

    "They wanted what Americans do: hot dogs," said Al Lutz, editor of the Disney fan website Miceage.com. "They want churros and popcorn and all that stuff. . . . [Companies] go into it a lot just learning, and they figure it out."

        Better yet, i wonder since when did Mr Lutz become so knowledgable of what foreign people want in a theme park. Or even when he became such in expert in starting up international parks.


        When is LutzLAnd openeing in Dubai?
