When deciding which Disney Park to attend many consider Disneyland and Walt Disney World to be immensely different due to their immense differences in size and offerings, they are also surprisingly similar in their prices and attractions.
Yip and Hult (2012) define globalization as a business operating in all four hemispheres. There is no question that Steam Boat Willie, the original 1928 Mickey Mouse and the original Disney character, has expanded the Disney Company into a global business. As Disney pursued global expansion, there were a lot of variables to contend with. In order to operate in any foreign environment, competition must be frequently analyzed. Additionally, adaptions often need to be made in order to compete and to meet the needs and wants of consumers in the local culture. Disney has become one of the most recognizable globalized companies in the world through theme parks, cartoons, movies, and merchandising in foreign markets.
Oligopoly is a market structure whereby a few number of firms owns a lion’s share in the market. This market structure is similar to monopoly, except that instead of one firm, two or more firms have control in the market. In an oligopoly, there are no upper limits to the number of firms, but the number must be nadir enough that the operations of one firm remarkably influence and affects the others (Investopedia, 2003).
In Disney’s 2014 production of Maleficent, a vengeful fairy is thought to be a villain and or a hero because she revenges someone that tried to kill her but they could not do it to her just so they could become king so he just took her wings She is more of an hero then a villain. Therefor she had did nothing wrong.
Cultures are spread through globalisation through knowledge, ideas, clothing, beliefs, values, languages, food and movies. When contact occurs between cultures, all ideas are spread and transferred which has become easier nowadays than in the past because fewer people were to able to travel and experience the rest of the world. Disney, Disney princesses especially, has had a big impact on the spread of cultures from Saudi Arabia 's Aladdin to Germany 's Snow White and the Seven Dwarves to China 's Mulan. Not only has Disney spread the culture of beliefs and values, most children from all around the world who has watched a Disney princess original would be able to identify the traditional dresses such as the Qipao from China in Mulan. Their movies have also given children a way to apprehend various styles of cultures. These are some examples:

Millennial Disney and current Disney series shares some similarities. Both Disney era promotes friendship as something important in the development of teenagers and children. Being loyal and caring towards friends is point out several times when most of the series storylines evolves around friendship. The main character cannot act alone and always needs a friend who guide him or help them understand the situation. Also is taught that boy and girls have the same opportunities and are equals.

Does hearing the tagline “The Happiest place on earth” takes you on a memory lane of the very first day at Disneyland? The Walt Disney Company, was a dream of the most famous name in the animation industry and the creator of Mickey Mouse, Walt Elias Disney and now the company has estimated net worth of an about 36 billion dollars.

No matter what part of the word you are in, the word “Disney” would probably be recognized by anyone. Why? Because Disney’s influence spans globally. From theme parks, to television networks, to movies, to Broadway shows, it is clear that Disney is “the” multi-media conglomerate. So, when Disney recently announced its intention to purchase 21st Century, a well-known mass media cooperation, it is no surprise that people reacted strongly. However, reactions seemed to be split. Some people were excited, expressing how Disney’s newly acquired rights to projects such as X-Men and the Fantastic Four could really enrich the film industry, while others were concerned with Disney’s growing influence on all things media. How does this kind of deal affect our culture and consumption?
Out of the 12 listed above two(Miramax and the Anaheim Angels) were sold out and one(Saban Entertainment) saw some of its assets sold. However the remaining eight are still part of the Disney family. From a strategic prospective I would consider New Horizon Interactive a failure cause of whose Cub Penguin failed to meet its target. But these failures didn’t affect the rest of marvelous acquisitions of the Walt Disney corporation. Let us begin with the acquisition of Pixar(2006). With Disney and Pixar together ranks among the best acquisitions of all time. Analyst believed that Disney needed this acquisition since its own animations were failing one after another. With acquisition of Pixar Disney not only got access to the Pixar technology but
Disney has been a worldwide phenomenon in terms of creating entertainment for kids and even older adults. Disney has been able to expand and grow its franchises and create new franchises that are capable of become world-wide hits. Its due to its ability to change and manipulate its marketing strategies that allow Disney to appeal to its market. Another main marketing strategy that has allowed Disney to dominate all of its competition has recently been by cross platforming and taking over different companies and implementing them so that they can increase profits. Disney’s ability to change its focused demographics, create a substantial competitive advantage, manipulate the marketing mix to fit each franchise, and focus on specific strategic plans has allowed for Disney to become one of the top platforms in the world.
