"With the middle class expected to grow from 50 million to more than 500 million people by 2025, this market offers huge potential for us to deliver quality branded entertainment to consumers”.
“This acquisition expands our footprint significantly and allows us to more effectively build, monetize and brand multi-platform franchises, and deliver a rich library of content to the world's second largest population”, adds Andy Bird, Chairman, Walt Disney International.

LOL I forget what celebration they were having that she won it for .And my brother is a food buyer there, so .we go alot, and sometimes just to have dinner at one of the countries in EPCOT."
