  • Shanghai Disney Expansion: New Toy Story & Chevrolet-Sponsored Attractions

    It seems like Shanghai Disneyland is already planning on expansion, on the day of its grand opening.

    Walt Disney Co will expand the Shanghai Disney Resort, which opens today, “sooner rather than later” and some construction work has already begun, Disney chairman and CEO Robert Iger announced in Shanghai yesterday.

    “When we open, we will continue the construction to expand what is on the opening-day menu and we are already discussing what to do next year,” he told media assembled at the jungle-themed Adventure Isle attraction at Shanghai Disneyland. There is a 7-square-kilometer parcel on which the company can add more attractions, Iger noted.

    In another interview, Iger said more attractions are already in the pipeline, including one supported by the automobile brand Chevrolet, which will open later this year, and one opening early next year based on the Disney cartoon franchise Toy Story.

    On the longer term, the second phase of the theme park, which will cover 3.9 square kilometers, will be situated between the current park and the Value Retail Shanghai Village, an outlet adjacent to Disneyland. He added: “We didn’t just build Disneyland in China. We built China’s Disneyland.”
