    Re: Shanghai Cutbacks

    "Frontier" when translated basically makes no difference to "Front Line" in Chinese. Front Line obviously refers to the front line in battlefields.

    IIRC, "Frontierland" was changed to "Westernland" in Tokyo. That will work in Chinese also. I don't see why it could not be changed similarly in Shanghai.

    Re: Shanghai Cutbacks

    I thought it was dirt-cheap to built in China or is that a myth after all? Isn't the MK park supposed to be bigger than DLP, then how are they going to cope with only three lands left? ...unless they add one or two new lands.

    While it is certainly cheaper to build in China, costs there have been going up steadily. What costs a lot is not just building the park, but what WDI bills to the Walt Disney Company, which is typically several times what it should be.

    Which seems to be the root of a lot of problems with many of the parks. Why is it like this? It seems that WDI seems to be content to rest on its laurels. Hopefully the recent development of rival parks should be a wake-up call for Disney.

    About that castle, I agree it looks a little on the fat side. More like a birthday cake with too some fat candles that were just stuck in the middle. Not very magical looking at all. I guess it looks...too stable imo. Part of what I love about all the five existing castles in the implausibility in them.
