Site formation over at Shanghai Disney

Updated: 2012-04-27 07:33

By Gao Changxin in Shanghai (China Daily)

Site formation work has been completed at the Shanghai Disney Resort project, laying the groundwork for the construction of a theme park featuring "fun food elements" and Chinese culture.

A total of 4.2 million cubic meters of water were extracted and 18 million meters of wick drains laid in a 1.68-square-kilometer area in Shanghai's eastern suburbs, in what project authorities said was the largest site formation project in the world.

The work has been done with "record quality", said Howard Brown, senior vice-president of Shanghai Disney Resort, adding that it marks a milestone in the construction of the resort, which will open at the end of 2015.

More than 100,000 tests were conducted to ensure the quality of the site formation, which started on April 8 last year.

"Today marks a significant milestone in the development of Shanghai Disney Resort," said Bill Ernest, president and managing director (Asia) of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

"We are incredibly happy to begin building the resort and to develop this world-class family vacation destination in Shanghai, one of the world's most vibrant cities."

The construction of 30 projects will begin this year, including hotels, the theme park and transportation and entertainment facilities.

Upon its opening in 2015, the resort will cover about 3.9 sq km, with a theme park, two themed hotels, various dining and entertainment venues, recreational facilities, a lake and transportation hubs. The total investment will reach 24.5 billion yuan ($3.7 billion).

Ernest said the resort will feature "local flavors". Giving a peek into Walt Disney Co's first theme park in the Chinese mainland, he said a special food team will be formed to offer locally flavored cuisine.

The resort will also arrange various cultural events that celebrate traditional Chinese festivals, including Spring Festival and Mid-Autumn Festival, in an effort to "keep visitors coming back throughout the year".

Fan Xiping, president of Shanghai Shendi Group Corp, Walt Disney's local partner in Shanghai, said up to 500 designers and architects had worked intensively on every detail of the theme park to ensure that visitors will have "the best experience".

"The park will be a combination of Walt Disney's premium standards and Shanghai's best practices," he said.

Three joint ventures have been set up between Walt Disney and Shanghai Shendi Group Co, a wholly State-owned company specifically created last year for the development and management of the Shanghai Disney Resort.

Shendi holds a 57-percent controlling stake in the two joint venture companies, and a 30-percent minority stake in the joint venture management company.

Investment and profits will be split between Shendi and Walt Disney in proportion to their stakes in the owner companies.

Experts say the Shanghai Disney Resort will greatly benefit the city's tourism sector.

Lou Jiajun, a professor at the tourism department of East China Normal University in Shanghai, said tens of millions of people will visit the resort annually. Consumption during their visits will boost the local catering, dining and entertainment industries, he said.

The "Disney effect" has already been seen in Shanghai's eastern suburbs. Prices of land and property surrounding the resort have more than doubled over the past year.

Two 7-story hotels set for city's Disneyland
Shanghai Daily
Aug 21, 2012

SHANGHAI Disney Resort, the first Disney resort on China's mainland, will have two seven-story hotels when it opens at the end of 2015, according to the design plan issued by the Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone.

"Hotel One" is close to the southern entrance of the future Disneyland. It will have a good waterfront view as the inner lake sits to the north of the hotel. The hotel, covering 64,750 square meters, contains a banquet hall, shuttle buses and nearly 300 parking spaces.

"Hotel Two" is at the west of the resort and it's close to the tourist parking lot and the theme park. The hotel covers about 80,937 square meters and it contains 400 parking spaces.

The zone's administrative commission is soliciting public opinion. See plans on its website at www.sh-resorts.gov.cn in Chinese. Locals can write to [email protected] to express their opinions by September 3.

Metro extension planned for Disneyland
Shanghai Daily
2012-12-7

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.

not that great. It's not an architectural marvel. Just another theme park with rides and things to look at. I doubt this one will be different than the one in Paris or elsewhere.

Hope they make something which is concrete and marvelous (does not seem so with the plans)

this one is totally different... a new castle design,new layout,new rides. its gonna be very innovative...really exciting to see this project grow.

Known facts about the park:

-The Chinese government wants Shanghai Disneyland to be sharply different from the other five Magic Kingdom theme parks around the globe, with several all-new attractions related to Chinese culture and myth woven into and around classic Disney attractions.
-The park’s Storybook Castle, the largest and tallest of all Disney’s turreted icons, will offer interactive elements, along with spaces for entertainment, dining and performances.
-The newest Magic Kingdom will do away with the traditional Main Street USA entrance in favor of an 11-acre park suitable for parades, cultural celebrations and character meet-and-greets.
-The theme park will be approached by boats navigating a 100-acre lake that plays up the importance of water to the Chinese and emphasizes the themes of sustainability and nature.
-The first phase of the project, which the Chinese government estimates will eventually cost $15 billion upon completion, will occupy just over half of the 1,730-acre property. Shanghai officials say the new resort will one day contain three theme parks.

1. You have expressed what the government wants. Not what disney is actually doing.
2. That is already done in the Paris Disneyland, including parades, cultural celebrations, etc.
3. That's only the location of the Park that the lake is probably present. It's not like they are building a 100-acre lake for Disney.
4. Costs and area covered does not determine the architectural point of the Project. A person may spend $500 Billion on the first phase but still make the project crappy.

All said and done, I would love to visit the Chinese version of Disneyland. It will be exciting to see the rides they have made.

Well, there are better structure and activities in Paris disneyland than a theatre in Paris.
And taller does not make it better.

Well, you would get my point if you knew better english. It was a phrase "A person may spend $500 Billion on the first phase but still make the project crappy". I didn't say that this project is crappy. I say that it's nothing extra ordinary. It's just another Disneyland park.

And I think you should visit the other disneyland before making these statements.

Disneyland is Disneyland. They're the same characters conveying the same stories around the world. Hence, each park is more or less a clone with the standard castle as the centerpiece.

Disney did say they want a more local theme for Shanghai since the Hong Kong park already has the international mould. But I doubt it will suddenly become a Chinese-style theme park.

Maybe you should improve your research skills before criticizing others' English, and exercise caution when commenting on matters of which you have limited knowledge. There are plenty of information available on the Internet regarding the Shanghai Disneyland's development, those innovations are not just the government's wishes but the finalized proposal from Disney, so it'll be built that way. The central lake will be a man made lake, there is no natural lake on site, the only body of water is a small river passing through the perimeter of the plot. The new Storybook Castle design is a huge innovation because it has deviated from the standardized castle design of other Disney theme parks, if you have visited all other Disney theme parks then you would have not used Paris as an example because its castles and Mainstreet USA is nearly identical to the Anaheim one.
