There first Disney land outside America opened 3 and half decades ago and it wasn't in Europe but the second Disney resort opened in Japan.
The original plans for the park were on 8 acres next to the Burbank studios where Walt Disney and his employees and families could go to relax.
Finally in 1953, he had the Stanford Research Institute conduct a survey for a 100-acre site, outside of Los Angeles. He needed space to build rivers, waterfalls, and mountains; he would have flying elephants and giant teacups;a fairy-tale castle, moon rockets, and a scenic railway; all inside a magic kingdom he called “Disneyland.”
The “magical little park” was really a $17,000,000 “Magic Kingdom.” Walt’s dream had come true and Disneyland was ready to open
Now there are 6 Disney land resort around the world including in Hong Kong and shanghai.
