    The Jungle Cruise, considered one of the "classic" rides at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, proved quite a challenge to re-create at Tokyo Disneyland. The attraction was even more of a struggle when Disney built a theme park in Hong Kong. And it wasn't even attempted at Disneyland Paris.

    The problems were not technological or logistical. Rather, they involved language and culture.

    This type of planning isn't limited to theme parks. Any product that is sold internationally has to go through some screening processes before being launched. My dd worked for a major eye wear company a few years ago. Naming sunglasses can get interesting when a cool name in English becomes something very rude in a foreign language.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?
