Disney’s Theme Park Expansion:

Disney strategically anticipates future trends in entertainment and tourism to plan expansions of its theme parks. For example, Disney’s anticipation of the growing demand for Marvel-themed attractions led to the creation of Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park.

Ask yourself

  • Am I thinking about the future intentionally and not only in passing?
  • Can I identify any potential events in my own future that will impact my life?
  • Can I consider what actions to take now, to meet those events in a prepared state of mind?
