Struggling Disneyland Paris Getting $1 Billion+ Infusion

The Walt Disney Company will completely take over the flailing Paris-area amusement park.

The Walt Disney Company is sending an emergency $1.3 billion to Disneyland Paris, which is facing declining attendance and rising debt.

Previously, California-based Disney only owned 40 percent of Disneyland Paris, with the rest owned by other investors, including a Saudi prince who is one of the top shareholders in Fox News. The gay-friendly Disney Company will now own the resort outright and work to pull it into profitability. Disneyland Paris, which opened in 1992, isn't entirely to blame for its poor numbers; European consumers have cut back considerably on spending, according to Travel Weekly.

Disney's other amusement parks are wildly popular though, especially resorts in Tokyo and Hong Kong.
