Disney Israel

Friday, January 7th, 2011

You might have seen this today: “Mickey Mouse magic: Disney plans Israel theme park“.

This is kind of not true.

Kind of.

The “Disney” in this case is not “The Walt Disney Company” but rather “Shamrock Holdings” – the investment firm set up by the late Roy E. Disney, nephew of Walt.

And the “theme park” is not a full park it’s going to be a movie theater and a mall.

But pictures of Mickey Mouse with “Israel” in the title sure sells more papers …
