Amazing news as The Walt Disney Company's takeover bid of the resort is officially in place as of today. TWDC now own 97.08% of Euro Disney SCA. They are thereby required by law to buy out the remaining shares and take the company off the Paris Stock Exchange. More info here. Maybe there'll be something to announce at D23? :b

Considering most of their debts come from paying license fees to TWDC, yes. ;)

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

That's great news.

It'll be interesting to see how this affects the expansion plans, rumours were suggesting that if TWDC took control the plans may grow and become more rapid in there construction. Hopefully this will be the case and WDS gets a rescue plan realised sooner rather than later as it desperately needs it.

I have never heard a break down of the debt. But if that's true, that's really interesting to hear. I am really happy that they took control over the park.
