    I really hope it doesn't take six to seven years before SDL is open for business. The land reclamation for HKDL took up a lot of time, didn't it? Hopefully, the land outside Shanghai is already in a such a state that they can begin construction on it immediately.

    Re: Shanghai Disney Theme Park to be announced this week

    In the past 24 hours there have been some signs that the final agreement between Shanghai & TWDC may be near:

    1. Shanghai Daily reports that the quickie buildings put up by site residents in order to pad their compensation will be razed by the end of this month:
    Quickie buildings to be razed -- Shanghai Daily | ???? -- English Window to China New

    2. Yesterday's Global Times article stated the "Shanghai municipal government will announce the development and construction plans soon."
    Global Times - Dueling disneylands?

    3. Disney is bringing Shanghai officials to Orlando, not to look at the parks (which would seem very preliminary) but to look at infrastructure systems like water control and fire fighting.
    Orlando Sentinel - Disney to bring delegation from China to Orlando as design of Shanghai Disneyland continues on Tourism Central Florida

    I'm hoping December will be the month... and detailed artwork, land/ride descriptions and concept maps would be a welcome Christmas present...

    Heck, I just hope we don't have to wait another year before we know what's going to be included in the park! The anticipation would kill me...
