A Hong Kong newswpaper and Shanghai Securities News both suggest Mickey Mouse and his friends could be welcoming visitors to the Shanghai’s own Disneyland as early as 2012 or possibly 2013 depending on which story you believe.
The story is that the theme park, with an estimated cost of RMB40 billion($5.8 billion), will be located on the east bank of Shanghai’s Huangpu River, bordering Pudong district’s Chuansha town and Nanhui district.
Shanghai Disneyland, if it happens, will be 20 minutes’ drive from Pudong International Airport, and eight times larger than the one in Hong Kong.
An assistant to senior manager Tiffany Huang at the Shanghai-based Walt Disney Co. of China, said, ‘The report is not true and no agreement has been reached.’ As a denial that sounds on the weak side.
