But it wasn't enough to build a ¥34 billion megapark ($6.9 billion) that's four times the size of Disneyland. Disney also used the opportunity to gain a greater foothold in China -- which was not always so easy. A New York Times report gives insight into the intense negotiations between Disney CEO Bob Iger and the Chinese government to introduce Mickey to Communism.
