Way back in November 09, we learned that Disneyland Shanghai was officially a go!
Now, nearly a year and a half later, the Walt Disney Co. is finally ready to begin construction on the theme park!
On April 8, Disney CEO Bob Iger will oversee the beginning of construction on the $3.7 billion "initial phase of construction," which will "cover 1.5 square miles" and will include "a theme park and two hotels, and…additional 1.1 square miles for further development."
The park is currently scheduled to open in 2016 in China's Pudong district, and it will be the sixth Disney theme park to be launched around the world.
So cool! We can't wait to see it when it's completed!
Will U visit Disneyland Shanghai when it opens in 2016?
