What really caught my eye in the article is what was torn down:

Earlier this year, a sex-themed park in the central Chinese city of Chongqing called "Love Land" was torn down before it could open to the public. Shanghai, however, could be on the verge of a tourism boom.


A TPR trip to this park would have had the BEST trip report. Mmmmm the rides at this park would have been great and just think what the prizes could have been with the games. The food... the uniforms for the staff, the 4D movies, etc. I hate when innovation is stifled like this.

Hmm... I wonder if they have an "18+" admission policy. Oh nevermind, it's China I don't think they really regulate things like that. :roll:

Anyways, Shanghai Disneyland sounds really cool. Hopefully it will be done by the next time I visit my family in Shanghai, which I don't know when yet.

- Rides don't hurt people, people do. (although some exceptions)

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Disney and the Chinese Government is buying a lot of land and moving close to 5,000 families to create this new park.
November 13, 2009

More than 5,000 families in China are expected to be ordered to relocate to make way for Disney's newest theme park.

"My husband and I are very worried," Jin Xinmei told Bloomsburg News. Jin, a 72-year-old retired farmer, was recently notified by the government that she would have to relocate from their native village so Disney could build their newest theme park. "We don't want to move because our meager income is not enough for us to live in the city, where everything costs more."

Jin was not told how much she will be paid for her 323-square-foot home, including the backyard where she grows Chinese cabbage, potatoes and strawberries in an effort to save money.

“We understand that the local government is offering resettlement packages to local residents,” Disney spokeswoman Alannah Hall-Smith told Bloomsburg News in an email. “The local government is also offering other forms of assistance to local residents, and Disney and our Chinese partners will strive to support these local efforts.”

The relocation efforts are expected to cost just over $954 million dollars, according to the state media.

The $3.6 billion park, which was green-lighted by the Chinese government earlier this month, is scheduled to open in 2014.

I can't help but think that if the people can not afford to live in the city that they will not be able to buy tickets to visit the park and that this could be a repeat of Disney Hong Kong problems all over again.

I think the mouse is stretching himself too far :mickey:

^ While I agree somewhat they are stretching itself a little thin. However, the bigger problem I see is trying to convince China that the Disney characters mean something. It is hard enough to get kids today to care about Mickey Mouse with all the other entertainment options in a country where he is an icon.

With that said, I am excited for the park. Even if the park were to bust, there could be great ideas moved to the other parks worldwide.

THE BOY

I actually want that too! It would fit since it's in China and all.

Really? They are forcing families to move to build a park? It reminds me of cutting down forests to make room for a new house and squirrels have to relocate. *sigh* This makes me not like Disney now.

Although I hope this park gets some awesome unique rides.

^I don't think it's really 'Disney' forcing the people to move. And I can't imagine why you would decide you hate Disney now.

Do you know anything about China? Their government? Or the people?

Trust me, it's not Disney bulldozing small children's homes.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Although this does sound a bit harsh, Shanghai Disney must now be the envy of nearly every park in the world. How many parks get to take care of their problems with neighbors by forcing them to move?

Don't like the noise from the rides? OK, we'll just bulldoze your house!
