With very little access to get pictures of the construction it is going to be a long three years!

I Love Donkeys!

Alain from the Disney and More Blog Here came across some new images for Shanghai. It's still blurry, but you can actually glean some of the attractions that are arriving.

On the right looks like an offshoot of the plans they had for Hong Kong Disney Pirate land with a hybrid Pirates/flume type attraction.

Directly in front of the castle is where they will place the Dumbo spinner and carousel. (This is from the perspective of the castle you'll notice it on the bottom right just to orientate yourself).

And here is an image of the entrance.

The upper left hand shiny building is rumoured to be a TRON coaster still (replacing Space Mountain). The bottom right looks like a version of Jungle cruise. Behind the castle is presumably Fantasyland I *think* it looks like Snow White Dwarf train to the left of the castle and Little mermaid to the right.

No idea about the rest of the left side, but those are some pretty massive looking show buildings!


I'm really glad to see how they are reinventing the Magic Kingdom instead of creating another clone. Ultimately new parks will be under built, but at least with the new vision it won't put so much focus on what is missing. It's seeming more like we are getting a Tokyo DisneySea effort rather than the not-so-great openings of other recent Disney Parks (DCA and Hong Kong I'm looking at you!).


Time to start planning my 2015 visit to Shanghai! :mickey:

http://www.shanghaidaily.com/nsp/Metro/2012/12/07/Metro%2Bextension%2Bplanned%2Bfor%2BDisneyland/

An exclusive Metro line serving Shanghai Disneyland visitors will be built and put into service in 2015, the same year the amusement park opens to the public.

The new line is a 9.15-kilometer extension of Metro Line 11, starting from Luoshan Road Station in Pudong and ending at the Disney Resort with three stations in between.

The planned Disneyland Station will feature cartoon figures, such as Mickey Mouse. Passengers can enjoy the park's views through large vaults of the semi-underground station.

The project has been approved by authorities, according to a report in today's Jiefang Daily.

^^ it's looking better and better.
Practically EPIC, the way the design

Can't wait to get back to China in....2016?

Wow, this project looks incredible. I LOVE how this isn't an exact clone of other Magic Kingdoms, it has its own character.

Can't wait to see this project unfold even more.

That is weird. In all the other parks you kind of know where things are at, here it will be backwards.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I already get confused between the Magic Kingdoms, this one will really screw me up. Can't wait for it to open though! The preliminary sketches look great.

Walt Disney Co started a recruitment campaign in China on Tuesday for its new theme park in Shanghai.

A total of 39 positions are being offered on the company's website to support the resort project in Shanghai's Pudong district.

Positions include assistant contract manager, IT infrastructure manager, and employees responsible for administrative management matters, purchasing, and engineering projects.

The resort, which is expected to open in 2015, will have a theme park, two hotels, various dining and entertainment venues, recreational facilities, a lake and transportation hubs.

The total investment is expected to reach 24.5 billion yuan ($3.84 billion) for the theme park and 4.5 billion yuan for the hotels and other facilities.
