    官員︰中國「還做不起迪士尼」


    【本報綜合報導】中國官員首度公開承認,已經立項的上海迪士尼如果最後確定興建,對香港迪士尼會造成不良影 響。中國遊藝機遊樂園協會常務副會長劉景旺稱,上海迪士尼會吸引大陸絕大多數的遊客,這肯定會影響到香港的 迪士尼。由於經濟基礎、技術水平及氣候等多方面的制約,目前大陸不適合建迪士尼。

    在昨天開幕的「上海及國際遊樂園及景點協會2006年展會」上,劉景旺稱,大陸主題公園的發展只有短短的2 0多年,與美國等國家相比,肯定經驗不足。他本人也曾參觀過不少外國主題公園,親身體會到這種差別。每個主 題公園內的各種遊藝機都具有很高的科技技術,且各有特色,不能千篇一律。就投資而言,每個主題公園都需要投 入龐大的資金,以迪士尼為例,每一個項目的投入最少要一億元;再加上氣候對戶外活動項目較多的主題公園也有 相當大的影響,長江以南地區氣候較溫和,這有利於主題公園的營業;而長江以北地區冬天太冷,夏天太熱,綜合 上述因素,「目前中國還做不起迪士尼」。

    問及上海是否適合建迪士尼,劉景旺表示,由於消費習慣等原因,上海的夢幻樂園及蘇州樂園等投資超過十億的樂 園都辦得不成功。

    不過,迪士尼畢竟是國際名牌,而上海是國際大都市,因此他認為,上海建迪士尼「是可以的」,但要結合中國的 特色,適當注入中國元素。他又坦承,上海迪士尼定會搶走香港迪士尼的客源。一般估計,上海迪士尼落成後,每 年可能會搶去香港迪士尼200萬左右的客源。
    除迪士尼外,大陸還在籌建多個大型主題公園。上海浦東正籌建集主題公園、博物館和度假村為一體的航天科普園 。該項目估計投資將達2.53億美元。

    A very interesting article from WorldJournal


    Partial Translation:
    Mainland Chinese Official:"China could not afford Disney"

    Mainland Chinese Official admits in public for the first time, that if a Disney Theme Park is approved to be built in Shanghai, there would be negative effects on Hong Kong Disneyland.

    Mr. Lau (the vice chairman of the Theme Park Association of China) said in an interview that Shanghai Disney Theme Park would attract most of the tourists from Mainland China, and thus it would definitely affect Hong Kong Disneyland.

    Due to economic, technological, and weather constraints, China is not yet able to afford a Disney Theme Park.

    ------------------------------------

    but Mr. Lau also mentioned that Disney is a international well-known brand and Shanghai is an International Cosmopolitan city, therefore Shanghai is suitable to have Disney Theme Park under the conditions that the Chinese elements be injected into the Theme park. He estimates that Once Shanghai Disney Theme Park opens its door, Hong Kong Disneyland would lose approx 2 million mainland visitors each year.

    ORDDU: And to think we had read--recently--that having a park in Shanghai wouldn't compete with Hong Kong Disneyland any more than Walt Disney World competes with Disneyland.

    ORWEN: What's the difference, then?

    Another one in Shanghai is just stupid. That would be like building another Disneyland in Barcelona (right after Disneyland Paris).

    Seems like oversaturation of the Asian region and Disney parks. They have two resorts in the area, but both are far apart and close to millions of possible visitors. I just think it seems like a bad time to be thinking about a 6th resort.

    Especially when one of those Asian resorts is in a struggle with its audiences.
