A. Abstract


n this project we were assigned to develop and establish, on the behalf of Disney Company, a completely new Disneyland Resort in Egypt.

Disney Company has developed an international strategy, trying to penetrate all its potential markets around the globe. This expansion to Egypt falls within the perspectives of this strategy.

Moreover, as Disney Company has to carefully evaluate all the characteristics of the hosting country, cultural differences, political, economic, financial, social, and legal environments will be extensively analysed.

In this specific situation, the U.S. and Egypt have a very strong relationship. They are bonded not only by a strong and long lasting friendship, but also by many official agreements and treaties.

Finally after examining all the factors that will be presented in our project, we will present the composition of the new Disneyland Resort, along with a 5-year development plan and a crisis management model.
