  • Disney to build park in Shanghai

    "Aug. 1, 2005 (Bloomberg) - Walt Disney Co. will open a theme park in Shanghai in 2012, the Hong Kong Economic Times said, without identifying the source of its information.

    The company will start designing the park next year, the Chinese-language paper said. The construction will begin in 2008 and the park will open in 2012, the paper said."

    Anyone heard anymore on this?

    By the way, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, didn't know where else to.

    Very Interesting ... I wonder if it's true? And if so, when will DisCo announce it?

        Blech..... so not excited about that news!!!

        I wish they'd spend the money improving the parks they currently have.

              Well there is always a silver lining to a no-matter-how-dark-a-cloud. It will take this park FOUR years to build, which is just as long as Disneyland Resort Paris (back when it was Euro Disney Resort). I think this shows that a lot more work will go into this park. HKDLR was built on reclaimed land, and yet still was built in just over 18 months.

                I hate this idea. I thought I was the only one. Seems like most people at MouseInfo like this idea. So I thought I was the only person that is against it.

                  I saw CM Matt on some Orange County Forum last weekend and he said they were going to continue on the international market, with no plans for a 3rd gate here. The only thing he said about the 3rd gate was that we still had the land available.

                    What else did he say? Anything about DCA and the resort?

                          So?

                          Money is not why we dont want the park. Turing it into a warped Franchise, with even two in one country (!), would be a disaster, and what is happening.

                            Mega Idea

                            Why not dismantle DCA and rebuild it piece by piece (labor is cheap) in Shanghai? California would be exotic to them and have no competition! Disney saves face and never has to admit failure (It's not closing.. its just moving!). It is a better idea there and can be marketed as "Imported from California". You could even have a SF themed Chinatown. Then Disney could put something better next to Disneyland and have another shot at success.
