^ Not from me. I keep searching and searching online, for any photos I can find of construction. And the only thing so far, that I've found, is the "Official Vertical Construction Ceremony" pix a few pages back. Disney is being (to me) somewhat successful in keeping hush-hush with this, on actual photos being released. And I suppose getting out to the actual site itself, isn't easy. The public transit station(s) hasn't been built and opened yet, so that doesn't help.
Hopefully, somebody over there will be able to post something. Or Disney will finally release some on-site photos, soon.
In the mean time...patience.
(Or maybe we'll be given a nice Chinese New Year's gift of photos! <GRIN>)
News from Disney & More about current construction at the park...
Chinese medias announced that major structural work on the first building of Shanghai Disneyland, the part outside the park to be named "Disney Town" and which will house the resort's retail, dining and entertainment area was completed on Monday:
"Concrete was poured into the last section of the roof structure of the building near the central lake of the resort in the Pudong New Area that is scheduled to open to the public by the end of 2015. "The building will host a variety of dining and entertainment options for guests while offering stunning views of both the lake and Shanghai Disneyland's Enchanted Storybook Castle," an official with the resort said.
The retail, dining and entertainment area will initially be comprised of a 46,000-square-meter pedestrian-access area and will be located next to Shanghai Disneyland, Shanghai Disney Resort's Magic Kingdom-style park. The area will offer guests unique opportunities to enjoy Chinese and international dining, shop for special Shanghai Disney Resort souvenirs and see world-class entertainment.
"With something for everyone, this festive venue will be a "must-visit" for anyone living in or traveling to Shanghai," the official added".

First building onsite, topped out.
What it will eventually be turned into. The area is located to the left of the grand promenade that leads to the main park's entrance, and beyond to the castle.
