SHANGHAI | Disneyland

The roads that lead to Disneyland
Created: 2011-1-5 1:39:08, Updated: 2011-1-5 1:56:54

Large-scale construction of the Shanghai Disneyland project could start as early as May with work on two major roads leading to the future theme park due to be completed in April, officials said yesterday.

Hangcheng Road and Tanghuang Road in the Pudong New Area are part of the 40 billion yuan (US$6.1 billion) infrastructure budget for the first Disneyland Park on China's mainland - a sum equal to Pudong's spend on infrastructure for last year's World Expo.

"A lot of construction vehicles and earth-moving vehicles will enter the plot through the two roads," a Pudong Construction and Traffic Bureau official surnamed Wang said yesterday.

"The two roads will be closed to the public, with only construction vehicles allowed to use them," he said.

All construction related to the Disneyland project is expected to be finished in 2014. The park is due to open in 2015.

Houses on the 3.9-square-kilometer site have all been cleared after residents were relocated in the middle of last year.

Work to expand three other related roads - Nanliu Road, Zhoudeng Road and Liufeng Road - will start in June, while work on Xiupu Road should start within the year.

The infrastructure projects include eight roads which will be the major routes to the Disneyland park and will cost about 10 billion yuan, Wang said.

A new elevated road is to be built on Shenjiang Road.

Meanwhile, a river about 10 kilometers long and 60 meters wide is being created around the park area.

"The river will make the theme park an enclosed area," Wang said. "It will facilitate the management of the park and adorn the landscape."

Another water feature, a 0.39 square kilometer lake, will be built inside the amusement park.

Shanghai announced in November 2009 that it had gained central government approval for the Disneyland project.

The park will cover about 1.16 square kilometers, while facilities such as parking lots and dining areas will occupy up to 2.74 square kilometers.

More than 2,000 households and 297 enterprises on the site have been relocated.

There is already a thread about Shanghai Disneyland. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=326340

Even though the park's core area is less than 4 square km the total theme park area that Shanghai designated is over 100 square km, so there are a lot of potential to grow in the future.

The National Development and Reform Commission said the Shanghai project at Pudong New Area's Chuansha town will initially be built on 116 hectares of land - 10 hectares smaller than Hong Kong Disneyland.

There had been widespread concern over competition in August after a Walt Disney document showed Shanghai Disneyland would cost 24.48 billion yuan (HK$27.76 billion).

The document also said the first stage of the park would cover 150 hectares.

The mainland commission said the project to be jointly developed by mainland and American companies will include logistics support areas, a public utilities area and a parking lot.

A Hong Kong tourism insider said the similar size of the Shanghai and Hong Kong theme parks would put them on an equal footing initially.

He said it was Disneyland's policy to expand parks gradually after their opening.

"It will not use all the 400 hectares [in Chuansha town] at once," he said. The insider also said Hong Kong people should not worry about the size of the local park as the second expansion phase will add another 128 hectares.

"The agreement between Disney and the Hong Kong government said Disneyland cannot gain anything if the park does not make a profit," he said.

"Disney wants to expand the park more than anyone else to make more money."

Hong Kong Association of Travel Agents chairman Michael Wu Siu-ying said it would be "fair competition" if the two theme parks are of similar size as they can attract different types of visitors.

"The Shanghai theme park will be for visitors from eastern and northern China and the Hong Kong park for international visitors and those from Southeast Asia," he said.

He also said the Hong Kong park might have some advantages over Shanghai even if they were of similar size.

"Hong Kong Disneyland will expand and have more facilities in the coming three years.

"It will have some advantages over Shanghai as its park will not open until 2014."

Shanghai's Disneyland will have a Chinese flavor
Shanghai Daily
Jan 13, 2012

Shanghai's Disneyland will be cheaper than its counterpart in Hong Kong and Chinese features will complement the brand's traditional style, a local official said yesterday.

Dai Haibo, deputy director of the Pudong New Area government, said ticket prices would be below Hong Kong Disneyland's 300-plus yuan. That will be welcome news for the millions of visitors the park is expected to attract each year after it opens in 2015.

Officials believe setting reasonable ticket prices will boost the attraction, especially among the domestic market.

The first phase of the new Disneyland will cover 3.9 square kilometers and lie at the heart of a 20-square-kilometer Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone in Pudong. The project is currently under construction.

Dai said "Chinese elements" would be used in the design of the new park to distinguish Shanghai Disneyland from others around the world.

"During our preliminary survey, we found some Disneyland parks overseas did have some Chinese-styled attractions but they were not original enough. We will have the future local park featuring authentic Chinese elements well blended into Disneyland's signature style," Dai said.

In a 100-square-kilometer area around the park, the government will make sure only businesses in line with the function of the park will be licensed.

"For example, no operations related to heavy industry will be allowed to open inside the reserved outskirts as it obviously violates the interests of the tourism zone," Dai said.

Shanghai Disney to receive 10.5 mln to 15 mln visits annually

SHANGHAI, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Annual visits to Shanghai Disneyland are expected to reach 10.5 to 15 million after opening, said a senior official with the International Academy of Tourism (IAT) on Thursday in Shanghai.

"Shanghai Disneyland will be three times of the one in Hong Kong. The massive population in the Yangtze River Delta will strongly support it to be a top choice for a one-day tour," said Alastair M. Morrison, director with the IAT, at the international seminar on the theme park and urban tourism.

The construction on the Shanghai Disney Resort project started in April 2011, with the park expected to open after 2016.

Covering an area of 1.16 square kilometers, the theme park inside the 3.9-sq-km Shanghai Disney Resort, will be the world's sixth Disney amusement park and the first one on the Chinese mainland. It will also be the third of its kind in Asia, after the company's theme parks in Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Investment in the Shanghai theme park is estimated at 24.5 billion yuan (3.7 billion U.S. dollars). Construction is scheduled for completion in five years.

Earlier this year, the Walt Disney Company announced that it would open its first wholly-owned shop on the Chinese mainland in 2012.

For Christ's sake JN Changxing is NOT building two carriers!

Back to topic, the yellow part will be the main theme park, pink is hotels, red is retail space, green is public transportation, blue is public utilities, brown is parking, gray is reserved land for future development, neon pink is administrative, light blue is a man made lake.

This shows the relative location of the park in Shanghai. Shaded area indicates current planned area (phase one), the total allocated land in Chuansha township provides plenty of space for future expansions, the final phase could potentially triple the size of the current park.

Shanghai Disney launches 1st round of recruitment
03-30-2012 08:28 BJT
http://english.cntv.cn/program/china...0/107136.shtml

Shanghai Disney Resort, scheduled to open in late 2015, has begun its first round of recruitment. The resort says it has 100 job openings for highly skilled specialists in engineering, design and other fields to assist in the initial construction.
Flash and joy, always pervades Disney parks. Creative ideas and inspiration flourish at the world-famous resorts. And in terms of talent, Shanghai Disney Resort has its sights set high.

An official in Shanghai Disney Resort said, "We believe that Disney represent great service and excellence what we do. So we like to have high level talent. We also like to develop talent. We bring them in. We really invest in development."
Construction began in Pudong in April last year. The resort will include a park, two themed hotels, a dining centre and an array of other recreation facilities.

According to the resort, most of the positions will be filled by local people, as part of Disney’s efforts to make the resort "authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese".
An official in Shanghai Disney Resort said, "Localization is critical to everything we do. From the products we buy, to the environment we create design."
Local job seekers have responded enthusiastically to the first round of hiring for the recruitment drive. The resort says the number of applications has exceeded expectations. More initiatives will be launched later.

Future Disneyland starts forming
Shanghai Daily
2012-4-10

AFTER a year of construction, the future Disneyland theme park in the Pudong New Area has started to "take shape" with the land leveled, river channel created and some roads built.

Construction crews have almost finished grading the uneven land to prepare it for the large-scale construction in the next step. To reduce subsidence and create a safe amusement park, the builders have adopted a so-called vacuum-preloading method on the 1.68-square-kilometer plot.

They divided the area into 44 parts and inserted pipes into the land to draw ground water. The builder compared the work to "doing embroidery" on the land and said it meets the standard of an airport runway. The land will not sink by more than 1 centimeter for at least 50 years, according to the builders.

About 98 percent of the necessary soil has been removed to form the river around the theme park, and 84 percent of the soil of the future inner lake has been removed.

Construction on Tanghuang Road and Hangcheng Road, the eastern and southern border roads of Disneyland, will be completed and open to traffic by the end of this month, the Pudong New Area construction authorities said yesterday.

The Pudong government is responsible for the construction of 11 Disney-related road projects.

The other nine projects, including the Shenjiang lane elevated road, a bus hub and the major entrance road, are expected to be completed by June 2014.

The 11 road projects, which involve streets totaling 40 kilometers, will cost about 9.4 billion yuan (US$1.5 billion). A total of 492 households and 133 enterprises need to be relocated to make way for the road projects.

The theme park will lie in the heart of the 20-square-kilometer Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone. The first Disneyland theme park on the Chinese mainland broke ground last April, and its first phase is due to open for business in 2015. It's the third one in Asia, after Tokyo and Hong Kong, and the phase 1 project will cost 24.5 billion yuan.
