As construction of the Shanghai Disney Resort continues on its theme park and associated facility development, the Shanghai Disney Resort Management Company today released a new image of the overall resort concept. Innovative new design and technology practices are being used in guiding the development work of the resort, including resort modeling and Building Information Modeling (BIM), in order to maximize efficiencies in the design and construction phase, and ensure development of Shanghai Disney Resort remains on target to open at the end of 2015.

"Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has been helping families create shared memories for nearly 60 years", said Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts. "Shanghai Disney Resort will bring a classic Disney Parks experience to mainland China and will immerse Chinese guests in a whole new world of creativity, imagination and adventure that only Disney can deliver."

"The Shanghai Disney project will be the perfect combination of Disney global standards with local best practices, and will truly be 'authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese'. We are excited to see the Disney Imagineering team bring new design and construction techniques to China, working collaboratively with local design institutes, thereby supporting localization efforts for the Shanghai Disney project while also creating longer term benefits for the Chinese construction industry", said Fan Xiping, Chairman of Disney's Chinese joint venture partner in Shanghai Disney Resort, Shanghai Shendi Group.

"We are excited to see the resort development move into an intensive phase of construction, and look forward to providing more updates in the future, as we reach key milestones", said Mike Crawford, General Manager of Shanghai Disney Resort. "Each phase of the resort development is an important mix of creativity and technology, all of which is aimed at ensuring the guest will experience a safe, unique and exciting immersive experience, creating special memories with family and friends which are hallmarks of the Disney resort experience."

The image illustrates a portion of the model (1:100 scale) Shanghai Disneyland, and provides a first-look at a beautiful, 11 acre green space at the center of the park, and a closer look at the unique design and scale of Enchanted Storybook Castle, the iconic central attraction of the theme park. On opening day the resort will include Shanghai Disneyland, two themed hotels, a 46,000 square meter retail, dining and entertainment venue, recreational facilities, a lake and associated parking and transportation hubs.
