    Latest Non-news on Shanghai DL from conference call

    Except from Bob Iger's Q1 conference call Q&A:

    "(Q&A) I have two questions. One, you haven't said anything about the Shanghai park. I was wondering if you could - if there's anything holding that up? Does it have anything to do with you starting up a Disney Channel in China? Secondly could you talk about the cost curve for ESPN over the next few years? (A) There's no news on the Shanghai park, Jessica. Since we announced that we had reached a framework agreement with the government and received the necessary approval from Beijing, our next task was to negotiate a - basically, a detailed agreement with the Shanghai government, and that process is under way. And we are not making predictions as to when it will conclude except to say that it's moving along on a timely basis. And there's no direct tie to a channel in China. "

    ORDDU: There are times when a witch has to ask herself if Shanghi Disneyland will ever really be built. With the world economy the way it is and with the many political tensions all over the place--not to mention the recent Earthquakes in China, it just doesn't seem to be the right time to add another theme park there.

    Yes, there is alot of economic and political variables right now. After seeing footage of the Shanghai Expo's Grand Opening I believe they are more than capable of handling a theme park. However, it must benefit both Shanghai and Disney in order for it to work.
