Disney is to invest $5.5 billion on a new theme park in Shanghai. The theme park will have 6 themed lands and the tallest castle standing at 196ft. The ‘Enchanted Storybook Castle,’ as it will be properly known has house a table-service restaurant, Bibbidi Bobbidi boutique, a store and two attractions – the ‘Once Upon A Time’ adventure, following the story of Snow White, and a boat ride, ‘Voyage to the Crystal Grotto.’ The theme park will be the first Disney property to have an area dedicated to the Pirates of Caribbean films. There will also be a live stage show where Captain Jack Sparrow shows off his sword fighting skills.
The theme park is scheduled to open in June 2016 and will have the famous Disney Lion King show in Chinese language. This will be the second Chinese theme park along with Hong Kong which opened in 2005.
It also has parks in Tokyo, the US states of California and Florida and near the French capital Paris – where there was outrage over the prospect of an American cultural invasion when it was first proposed, although Europeans later embraced it.
Disney World in Florida remains the biggest and most popular theme park for Disney which was opened in 1971 and currently has over 52 million visitors each year. The themed areas in Florida are Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot and the world famous Magic Kingdom. The area also has golf courses, two waterparks and many hotel resorts. The area also has many privately owned vacation villas for rent whilst visiting the theme parks of Orlando.
