Default The "Chinese" Gets A DisneyWorld....

Or Disney theme park....

China's economic planning agency has formally approved a plan to build a Disney theme park in Shanghai, giving the city a new showcase following next year's World Expo.

The National Development and Reform Commission said in a notice Tuesday that the long-awaited park would be built, as expected, in Shanghai's eastern Pudong district.

Disney has said the initial phase of the project would include a Magic Kingdom-style park tailored to the Shanghai region, mainland China's commercial and financial hub.

Shanghai, China's biggest city, and Disney have yet to announce final details for the amusement park.

Disney has gradually expanded its presence in mainland China after opening a theme park in Hong Kong in 2005 and now has offices in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou.

Shanghai is in the midst of a construction boom ahead of the World Expo, which will open May 1.

Some residents were long ago moved off farmland in Chuansha, a part of Pudong district near the city's main international airport, to make way for the theme park.

Well. We're already in debt up to our eyeball's with them (you'd think it would be the other way around.... since their a communist country).... They might as well go ahead and get a Disney....
I figured they would put one in the "center " of the US as both coastal areas has one.... oh well, maybe later.
But congrats to the Disney Corporation.... they should make "another" fortune....

This is part of one of the problems the Chinese leadership will be facing in the coming years. There is going to be a growing middle class in China, and they are going to demand to be more in-touch with the World. The current restrictive policies in place will be severely strained. I also anticipate problems as there is a transfer of wealth from the coasts (where like 90% of the Countries wealth is concentrated) deeper into the mainland. This will build resentment...I actually could foresee China fragmenting in the next 15 years or so...

Why bother building this in China? It'll just break after like the third time they use it.
