The company changed the name of the park from EuroDisney to Disneyland Paris in an attempt to strengthen the park's identity. Another mistake that was later fixed was the scheduling. My paper for my International Business course deals with the many problems that marked the opening of EuroDisney. The management should first distinguish the difference between cultures could the effective measures be taken since most cultural conflicts have been caused by cultural diversity.
When word got out that Disney wanted to build another international theme park, officials from over 200 locations around the world expressed interest. Disney has realized the importance of cultural diversity and has begun to make changes after being failed in Paris. As mentioned in background, Disney Company has never failed before. The objective of international cultural differences can also be the basic demand points of different. The reason for its failure and success is the same: culture. However, a great success in Tokyo Disneyland is unexpected, which makes Disney company regret not to be the largest.
Operational errors were also committed for Disney, for example Disney assumed that Monday would be a light day and Friday a heavy day, so they arrange the staff accordingly, turned out to be the opposite and Disney had a big problem with that. The Disney characters that everyone knew from the cartoons and comic books were on hand to shepherd the guests and to direct them to the Mickey Mouse watches and Little Mermaid records. The Walt Disney Company executives believed since Tokyo Disneyland located in a cold-weather climate and virtually the same latitude as Paris, was so successful, they would be able to operate in similar weather conditions in Paris. In the first nine weeks of Euro-Dis neyland's operation, roughly 1,000 employees, 10 percent of the total, left. They are based on the same fundamental principles of using price, product, place and promotion to craft appeals to customers that will enhance sales. Financial difficulties had plagued the resort since it opened, crippling its ability to invest and creating urgency for short-term cash flow.
This is primarily focused on all things being perfect and without fault. As I have lived in Europe for many years, and know how Europeans in general think, companies that want to open any type of activity here need to think as a European. The Walt Disney Company signed a contract with the French national, regional and local governments, which promised Disney: favorable loan terms; that the rapid transit railway system would be extended to. Jean-Rene Bemard, the chief French negotiator, said he was astonished when Mr. Europeans actually went to the park as day excursions.
They got rid of the high priced items and replaced them with what people wanted such as Disney souvenirs. In the mid 1980s, Disney turned its attention to Europe, and specifically to France. From the beginning, cultural gaffes by Disney set the tone for the project. One former employee was a 22-year- old medical student from a nearby town who signed up for a weekend job.

Located by the river Marne some 20 miles east of Paris, it was designed to be the biggest and most lavish theme park that Walt Disney Disney had built to date-bigger than Disneyland in Anaheim, California; Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida; and Tokyo Disneyland in Japan. The foundation of Disney based on the stories and fairytales, like Cinderella and Snow White and Seven Dwarfs, they created. For instance, the fact that the French have a strong national pride and sense of superiority, and they regarded the extension of Disney land is a cultural invasion. Having wooed the Japanese, Disney executives in 1986 turned their attention to France and, more specifically, to Paris, the self-proclaimed capital of European high culture and style. The Disney characters that cartoons and comic books were on hand to shepherd the guests and to direct them to the Mickey Mouse watches and Little Mermaid records. In retrospect, Paris is not the best place to establish such a theme park, so the establishment of the Disney parks is a declaration of war to intellectuals of French. Many of Businesses in America make detailed assumptions about the potential of expand their business to other countries and structural models of organizing which can be easily failed to consider the cultural differences.
To find a site for their fourth theme park, the Walt Disney Company looked to Europe where Disney films historically have done better than in the United States. The parks in California, Florida, and Japan were busy and profitable. Even though Disneyland Paris had a terrible start in 1994, it had a great improvement and bright future in 2007. The Disney characters that everyone knew from the cartoons and comic books were on hand to shepherd the guests and to direct them to the Mickey Mouse watches and Little Mermaid records. While Disney succeeded in getting close to 9 million visitors a year through the park gates, in line with its plans, most stayed only a day or two. While Disney succeeded in getting close to 9 million visitors a year through the park most stayed only a day or two. EuroDisney had a disastrous first year in Paris, France.
What Disney executives did not realize was that they need to better understand the European landscape. Thank you so much and Best wishes. The company changed the name of the park from Euro Disney to Disneyland Paris in an attempt to strengthen the park's identity. To what degree do you consider that these factors were a foreseeable and b controllable by EuroDisney, Hong King Disney, or the parent company, Disney? Another approach is that supply of food and fashion changes. It seems that most Europeans regard theme parks as places for day excursions. How would you assess their effectiveness? We were trying to serve 2,500 breakfasts in a 350-seat restaurant at some of the hotels. Based on the changes, Disneyland Paris has made profits.
