PostSubject: New Disney Park Coming Soon!   Sat Nov 22, 2008 9:47 pm

"The settlement of Disneyland theme park in Shanghai is beyond doubt," revealed recently by an expert who has participated in the investigation and feasibility study on the Disneyland Shanghai project for several years.

A comprehensive entertainment brand comprised of several industries such as service and manufacturing will become one of the new forces to boost Shanghai's economy.

It is learnt that the negotiations between associated Shanghai departments and the Walt Disney Company on the details of the cooperation are still underway.

An informed insider disclosed that previously Disney's enquiry was too high; with the downturn of the US economy, Disney may make some concessions in the price, which will help promote smoother negotiations.

The terms regarding the use of intellectual property and the ownership structure between Shanghai and Disney are highly confidential and remain a secret. "But Shanghai is determined to win the Disney project and State Council approval is just a question of time," the insider added.

The Disney Park is initially set to be built in the Huanglou region, junction of Chuansha District and Nanhui District in Pudong New Area.

The location is selected primarily because it is only scores of minutes' drive from the Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

"According to relevant regulations, Shanghai permits 48-hour visa-free entry for transit passengers," an expert said.

Walt Disney Co intends to submit a plan for a Shanghai theme park to Chinese government officials, the company said on Friday.

Disney said it will submit plans for the park, which would be its second resort in China, together with the Shanghai government, but that no deal has been signed and no project has yet been approved.

A Disney spokesman declined to comment on when the plan will be submitted to government officials and how long it would take the Chinese government to approve the plan.

The project must be approved by China's central government in order for it to move forward.

Disney proposes to own a 43 percent equity stake in the Shanghai theme park and a local government-owned joint venture holding company would own 57 percent, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing a person familiar with the matter. The park is expected to cost $3.59 billion, it said.

The company has engaged in on-again, off-again talks for more than a decade with Chinese officials over plans to build a large theme park and hotel complex in the southern outskirts of Shanghai's Pudong district.

The Shanghai Securities News reported on Thursday that the plan calls for Shanghai Disneyland to open to the public in 2013. The paper also said Shanghai Lujiazui Group and Shanghai Waigaoqiao Group would participate in the construction of the project.

Talks were stalled by a Shanghai government scandal in 2006 and Disney's need to focus on Hong Kong Disneyland, which opened in 2005 to a string of operational problems and lackluster attendance.

According to People's Daily Online...

"(Disney) and the Shanghai Municipal Government recently drew up a joint application report which will be submitted to the Chinese Central Government for approval. The Disney headquarters and the Shanghai Municipal Government signed the document to draw the legal and financial framework for the construction of a theme park in Shanghai. According to the agreement signed, Disney will hold 43 percent of the stock shares, while the Shanghai municipal government-owned joint venture will hold 57 percent.

The theme park project is expected to cost 24.48 billion yuan (Roughly 3.6 Billion American dollars) and to cover an area of about 1.5 square kilometers (About 371 Acres). It is going to be open to visitors at least in 2014. The agreement did not specify the location for the theme park, but the Disney Park has allegedly been consented to be located in the yellow floor area at the junction bewteen Shanghai Pudong Chuansha and Nanhui. "As the Central Government has not yet made a formal approval, the specific location may be fine-tuned, but basically the park is sure to be near the Shanghai Pudong International Airport", an expert said.

Compared to Disney projects around the world, Shanghai Disneyland will be listed among the ultra-large-scale ones."
