Add one more nation to the list of countries bidding to add a Disney Themepark to its economy. Malaysia, a federation of nation states with some troubled history, says it is holding talks with the Disney Company for a 2,000 acre parcel of land in the Nusajaya township. So now the list for another Disney Resort includes India, South Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia (some would say add Australia to that mix). And don’t forget Shanghai, which supposedly has reached agreement for a non-Magic Kingdom style Disney Park.

Disney is in a strong position in the negotiations and should be able to get a really good deal from which ever government they decide to go with first. Yay Disney, I guess.
