[photopress:walt_disney_perhaps_for_Shanghai.jpg,full,alignright]Walt Disney intends to open a theme park in China which will parallel the one running in Hong Kong. But no date has been set and it will not necessarily be in Shanghai.
Xinhua news agency quoted Wing T. Chao, Disney’s vice head of development in the Asia and Pacific region, as saying, ‘We are sure to build a second park in China in the long run, but we are now reviewing the market.’
He said the company had yet to decide on a location for its second theme park in China nor had any construction plans been formulated.
Last year, Disney held talks with the Shanghai government on a possible theme park. But Wing T. Chao said that for the time being the company would focus on the development and expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland.
