Disney Unveils Plans for Shanghai Park

Disney has unveiled plans for its first park on mainland China. Scheduled to open next year, it will be Disney’s largest park in the world with six themed “lands.” Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger showed models for the new Shanghai park at the Shanghai Expo Center. The new park is set to have “distinctly Chinese” influences. “We are building something truly special here in Shanghai that not only showcases the best of Disney’s storytelling but also celebrates and incorporates China’s incredibly rich heritage to create a one-of-a-kind destination that will delight and entertain the people of China for generations to come,” Iger said in a statement.
