Shanghai Disneyland Construction To Began Soon!March 10, 2011 | by: Chan Zhuang | China |
Shanghai Disneyland. Despite there will be a World-of-Warcraf themed park (World Joyland) to open in the upcoming May in Changzhou, its neighbor city, Shanghai will have a Disneyland as well.
The locations of both are not far from each other, from Google map estimation, about 2 hours apart in distance.
The construction of Shanghai Disneyland project is expected to start in June and to invest around 24.5 billion yuan (around 3.74 billion USD) for the first phrase of the project, said the city’s Mayor Han Zheng. The new park is expected to open in 2015 and is expected to draw 7.3 million visitors annually.
“As the nation’s business hub, Shanghai lacks an eye-catching site for tourism, and the future Disneyland could be the one,” said by Yang, the senior manager of the professional services division with Knight Frank in Shanghai.
