In 2000, the Walt Disney Corporation opened its Disneyland in Hong Kong, which, within a few years, became the most popular tourist destination. Earlier, the company had opened a Disneyland in Paris (France), but it was not successful. The analysts attributed this failure to the cultural mis-match. Thus, while setting up the Hong Kong Disneyland, the company gave proper emphasis on localisation strategy. The case gives a proper description about the entry strategy adopted by Disney and offers a scope for discussing its success and failure.
