INTERNATIONAL MARKETING CASE STUDY 2: EURODISNEY Q1. What factors contributed to Euro Disney’s poor performances during its first year of operations? The factors contributing to EuroDisney's poor performance were : • EuroDisney started off on a nightmare because of cultural environmental differences. People simply didn't go there. The French people rejected Euro Disney because they considered it as American Imperialism and didn't accept the American cartoon characters because the French had the Asterix carton ...

... history that been Ethnocentric is detrimental to their business progress. They will then have to perform a cross-cultural analysis of the areas like Australia and New Zealand. Being regiocentric orientated means that EuroDisney views the region as the market and integrated strategies are developed for the region that take into account both the similarities and differences between the America and the region.

Australia is a country of multiple cultures with a broadminded liberal and comprehensive society. The diverse cultures and also those for New Zealand will have to be taken into account.
