So it seems that the Chinese have actually taken knockoffs to a whole new level with this bootleg Disneyland. Some even say that it’s better than the original.
You’ll probably enjoy it when the owner of the park is interviewed and claims that all the the Mickey Mouse imitation is “a cat with big ears.”
I really don’t blame the Chinese for doing this. I mean, who can’t help but want to go to Disneyland when you make Disney-related merchandise in a factory all damn day? For those thinking about the Hong Kong Disneyland, that one actually recently opened whereas this one has been open since 1986.
It’s important to remember that most of the Disney characters are based off of Grimm’s Fairy Tales from 1812- so technically Disney stole most of the characters from the Brothers Grimm. The only problem, of course, is that they aren’t alive to sue Disney.
