Biggest Theme Park Disneyland Might Open In Sri Lanka But Indians Aren’t Happy About It

You might have visited multiple amusement and theme parks but going to the OG, Disneyland, is the dream of many of us. The one that’s situated in Anaheim, California is the only one built under the direct supervision of American animator Walt Disney after which several similar parks inspired by it were opened across the globe.

And one such theme park might soon be opened in Hambantota, Sri Lanka. Yes, you read that right!

According to a report by the Times Of India, the island nation might soon boast of having South Asia’s first Disneyland as a team from Disneyland has agreed to visit Sri Lanka in November to hold discussions on this regard.

Moreover, Walt Disney has invited Sri Lanka’s State Tourism Minister Diana Gamage to the US to discuss plans for the $18 billion investment which will boost tourism in the country which is currently going through a major financial crisis.

This comes after Sri Lanka was given the hosting rights for ‘Miss Tourism World – International Finale 2022’ in Colombo. As per NDTV, Croatia, and Russia, the other two countries shortlisted to host the 75th edition of the ‘Miss Tourism World 2022′ voluntarily withdrew their candidature in order to support Sri Lanka to host this event owing to the fact that it will give their economy a major boost and revive the tourism industry in the country.

Having said that, Indians online weren’t happy with the fact that Disneyland might come to Sri Lanka. This is how they reacted:

Some people online were in complete disbelief speculating that this might be a false alarm.

Currently, there are six Disneyland parks in the world in places like California, Florida, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. I can smell something burning. Oh, maybe that’s just us Indians jealous of Sri Lanka.
