I've obviously got my eye on Shanghai since it will basically tie HK as the closest park to me now, but I just have visions of unprepared Disney fans not watching weather patterns and finding themselves stuck back home or having a vacation canceled for bad weather. Sadly, our weather is not often talked about back home in the US. We were watching the Weather Channel during the worst typhoon to hit Taiwan in over 50 years and we didn't even rate a mention in the tropical storm update the entire two days! Kinda sad!
I'm excited to see whatever starts to take shape in Shanghai -- if things go as as the trends are in other areas of mainland China, you can expect no expense to be spared and they will work to make this the best Disney Park in the world. Right now, they are throwing sickening amounts of money to be recognized as the leader in other industries (food and wine is a big one right now, which could help them lean towards Epcot). The desire for Shanghai and the mainland as a whole to become the top in business could end up being quite a bonus for us as Disney fans and parkgoers. My only concern is what ends up being the pricing structure. Shanghai is the Beverly Hills of China and the prices are starting to reflect that -- luxury hotels are popping up, it's all about high end shopping, etc -- how will that translate into Disney pricing?
