  1. Directly from the site offices in Shanghai, the project of the Castle!

  2. I hear: there are some 14,000 or more piles being put in the gound to stabilize the soil. This is where the Disney money is going - mostly underground! Also there is gross mis-management in the Shanghai office - trying to adjust Disney's congenial and collaborative culture to China is a giant undertaking. The project is already more than a year behind. The site is some 2.5 hours away from where some of the unionized unskilled and skilled labour lives - watch out for mass labor strikes and no shows. Remember the chinese govt is the major stakeholder - so chinese rules govern!

  7. TTG Asia: How’s the progress of Shanghai Disney Resort?

    Disney's Randy Garfield: We are still in the early stages of construction, which is moving on schedule. We are also building our marketing sales team as well as the operations team. The staff strength is growing bigger and bigger closer to the opening. We hired Wang Yan as vice president, sales and distribution marketing of Shanghai Disney Resort. She’s got a long history working in the travel industry, and she’s pulling together her sales team as we speak.

    Strategy-wise, we are in the discovery phase, formulating our marketing and sales strategies, doing consumer insight research and planning our work before we work our plan. The trade will continue to play a significant role in the success of Shanghai Disney Resort, just as it has been for HKDL and every other theme park product that we have.

    Philosophically, the strategy is to identify and work with partners whom we believe have a strong, established track record and generating regional demand, and similarly for the MICE side with different players.

  8. SHANGHAI Disneyland theme park's core area will be built around a large central lake, and visitors entering the park will be greeted by large green areas that will include parking at its three entrances, the city's urban planning body showed in a blueprint released yesterday.

    Contrary to the belief in some quarters that the Shanghai park will be like others elsewhere in the world, it will be a "China Disneyland - authentically Disney and distinctively Chinese", Robert Iger, chairman and chief executive officer of the Walt Disney Co said during a visit to Beijing.
    "There will be entertainment and show elements that will be very Chinese in nature, performed by Chinese, and designed, directed and created by artists from China," he said.
    Though Iger did not rule out opening parks elsewhere in China in the future, he said the priority today is to build a "great park" in Shanghai for visitors from all over the world.
