Disney theme park to open in Thailand


BANGKOK, Thailand – Disney is in talks with the government in building a huge theme park in Thailand that could attract more tourists to the kingdom.

Ministry of Tourism and Sports permanent secretary Pongpanu Svetarundra, revealed that Disney, the entertainment conglomerate, has come to discuss the possibility of building “DisneySea,” a nautical theme park in the country.

The Ministry of Tourism and Sports said a study needs to be conducted as well as a discussion with other relevant agencies and private companies to help determine as to where the theme park will be constructed, Khaosod reported.

DisneySea is a theme park that has an overall nautical exploration theme to it and is divided into seven areas or “ports of call:” Mediterranean Harbor, American Waterfront, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, and Mysterious Island. At present, there is only once place in the world where you can enjoy it, and it’s in Tokyo, Japan.

If the discussion between Disney and the government blossoms into an agreement, Thailand will be the second in the world after Japan, and the first in ASEAN to have a DisneySea.
