    Shanghai Disney park size

    TVB a Hong Kong channel reported that the Shanghai Disneyland Resort will be 1000 acres. However, the park size duriing at opening will only be 100 acres. This tells me its gonna be a small park when it opens if the news media is reporting it true. We know that Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is only 320 acres means that Shanghai Disneyland park is 1/3 the size of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.

    Can't see them opening a humongous resort with a postage stamp of a park. Then again starting small gives them miles to expand.

    I found this image that looks like the 100 acres may just be part phase 1.

    Disneyland Anaheim is roughly 85 acres (75 in 1955, with Toontown, and expansion of showbuildings outside the berm, bring it up to around 85) .......

    And if this park is 100 .... that will make it a bit larger than DL.

    You are comparing the size of the park in Shanghai to the size of the entire resort in Hong Kong? How is that a valid comaprison?

    The size of the park itself is not the most important factor. Disneyland Anaheim is smaller than the other Magic Kingdoms except for Hong Kong but has more packed into it than any of the others, and has been a resounding success from the start. There are more important things than total acreage...

    Re: Shanghai Disney park size

    Disney, the world’s largest media company, won government approval to build its first theme park in mainland China, its fourth outside the U.S. The Magic Kingdom-style park will be built in three phases covering 11 square kilometers (2,718 acres), according to Shanghai Securities News, and force about 5,000 families in Chuansha county to relocate, villagers said.
    Source : Bloomberg

    So according to Bloomberg, Disney Shanghai will be built in 3 phases covering 11 sq. kilometers (2,718 acres).

    But how big the actual park is, we still don't know. the figure quoted above, i believe is for the size of the whole resort.

    and some hongkong newspapers said the park (for the 1st phase) would cover 100 acres.

    to give you an idea how big is 11 sq. kilometers or 2,718 acres:

    Total site area of Hong Kong International Airport = 12.55 sq. kilometer = 1,255 hectares = 3,101 acres

    so Disney Shanghai's 2,718 acres (the whole resort covering 3 phases) is just little smaller than total airport site area of the Chek Lap Kok island (Hong Kong International airport)'s 3,101 acres.

    Re: Shanghai Disney park size

    This early in the design process, I don't think they have the final size down yet. 100 acres seems perfect though. That's comparable to the Magic Kingdom, and considering it probably won't have as many attractions as the MK when it opens, it wouldn't be wise to make it any larger.
