    Re: Disney to build park in Shanghai

    Shanghai and Hong Kong are always at odds with each other over tourism.

    According to travel "experts", Shanghai is on its way to supplant Paris as
    the #1 world tourist destination city.

    And, as such, Shanghai wants to give tourists *every* option they can,
    and that includes a Disney theme park.

    And, as to Disney wanting to build such a park, well it sure seems like
    they don't have much interest in building new attractions in the parks
    they've got....

    Also, from what I've heard, the Chinese want most of the production work
    of materials for this park to be done in China.

    Thus, WDI and Company might get a bit of design work, but don't count on
    large numbers of jobs for the Glendale folk.

    If some Chinese company foots most of the bill for construction (like Tokyo did with OLC) we might get an all-new park with DisneySea caliber. And on that note, BUILD IT!

    I guess that the official decision won't be made until the opening of Hongkong - they will wait how the park is received and then decide wheter or not they will built anothr park
