HK Disneyland faces to hypercompetitors and many theme parks in the theme park entertainment market. For example, Singapore Universal Studios, Ocean Park is enlarging the area and build a hotel, Shanghai Disneyland will build. Diversification products/services are increasing popular today; forecasts suggest that annual sales of such devices will grow more than 50% for the next few years. More visitors income increased and life standard quality is improving due to their country economy turns better , so visitors is growth especially China visitors.
China government has loosen the entry restrictions for citizens of many different countries. Hence, more intense demands are increasing. Moreover, nowadays rapid development of information technology, we can find some information and buy ticket and hotel in internet . New technology can improve our service too!
