Shanghai to have Disneyland

Shanghai to have Disneyland

SHANGHAI - CHINA'S planning agency has approved plans for a Disney theme park in Shanghai, the Walt Disney Co. said on Wednesday, a major step toward setting a deal for the long awaited project.

The approval by the National Development and Reform Commission will allow Shanghai, China's biggest city, and Disney to work on final details for the amusement park, to be located in the city's eastern Pudong district.

'China is one of the most dynamic, exciting and important countries in the world, and this approval marks a very significant milestone for The Walt Disney Company in mainland China,' Robert A. Iger, president and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, said in a statement.

It said the initial phase of the project would include a 'Magic Kingdom-style theme park with characteristics tailored to the Shanghai region.' Amenities will be consistent with other Disney resorts in the world, it said.

Disney has gradually expanded its presence in mainland China after opening a theme park in Hong Kong in 2005 and now has offices in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou.

The park will be a major showcase for Shanghai, the mainland's main financial and commercial center. The city is in the midst of a construction boom ahead of the World Expo, which will open on May 1. -- AP

Re: Shanghai to have Disneyland

it's just smart move by disney. china has the most pop and the ppl getting richer and richer. it can easily handle 2 or more disneylands. the distance between the 2 will be great enough that it wont seriously deprive HK of business.

Shanghai Disney pact signed

Shanghai Disney pact signed

SHANGHAI -- THE Walt Disney Co has signed an agreement with a Shanghai company for the establishment of a Disneyland theme park in the city, bringing its long-planned park in mainland China closer to fruition.

The deal was reached with Shanghai Shendi Group, which was specifically created for the development of the Disneyland project, the Xinhua news agency said on Friday.

Disney confirmed the Xinhua report and said it was awaiting final approval from China's central government regarding the incorporation of the related joint venture companies and the completion of regulatory procedures.

'For quite some time, we have been involved in discussions with the Shanghai government about building a Disney theme park. We can confirm the statement from the Shanghai government that we have taken another step forward in the approval process,' a Disney spokesman said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

Shanghai's Disneyland is expected to cover about 4 sq km and cost about 25 billion yuan (S$4.82 billion), Xinhua said. Following the announcement, speculation about possible construction contracts helped lift shares of several building companies, including Shanghai Pudong Road and Bridge Construction Co, which rose 9 per cent.

It was not clear what the ownership structure of the park would be like, but Chinese media reported last year that an investment company controlled by the Shanghai municipal government would own a majority stake in the park. Disney itself gave no further details.

China's first Disney Store to open in 2012

China's first Disney Store to open in 2012

SHANGHAI - WALT Disney Company said on Thursday it planned to open its first direct sales store in China by the middle of next year as it moves to cash in on the country's fast growing retail market.

The US entertainment giant said its strategy would be to secure locations in upscale shopping centres and department stores, where it will open Disney Stores similar to those in Europe and North America.

'The kids' branded retail market in China is growing and we are uniquely positioned to provide a family shopping environment,' Stanley Cheung, Disney's Greater China executive vice president and managing director, said in a statement.

'Our Disney Stores aim to deliver the best 30 minutes of a child's day,' he added. The company did not say how many stores it aimed to open in China.

Outside China, Disney said it was on track to add more than 25 new and remodelled stores this year and ultimately planned to refresh its more than 350 locations worldwide.

Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng said in his annual report earlier this month that the city would push forward to start work on a Disney Park in the city, that is reportedly scheduled to open in 2014.
