INTRODUCTION OF COMPANY
Disney land is an American theme park in California owned and operated by the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts division of The Walt Disney Company. It opened on July 17, 1955 in ceremonies led by Walt Disney. The company was initially a jointly owned venture by Walt Disney Productions, Western Publishing, Walt Disney and the American Broadcasting Company to manage and built the Disneyland theme park. As a provision for the joint ownership, Walt Disney Productions had the option to repurchase the share within 7 years.

Following are descriptions of each strategy:
DREAMER. A dreamer spins innumerable fantasies, wishes, different ideas without limit or judgment.All things are possible for the dreamer. To be the dreamer, ask: If I could wave a magic wand and do anything I want – what would I create?
REALIST. The realist imagineers the dreamer’s ideas into something realistic and feasible. He would try to figure out how to make the ideas work and then sort them out in some meaningful order.To be the realist, ask: How can I make this happen? What are the features and aspects of the idea?
CRITIC. The critic reviews all the ideas and tries to punch holes in them by playing the devil’s advocate. To be the critic, ask: Is this the best I can do? What can make it better? Does this make sense? and this is how Walt Disney differed from others and thought creatively.
