Shanghai not decided on Disneyland yet

“A theme park is part of Shanghai’s blueprint, but it could be either a foreign park or a Chinese one,” Qian Weizhong, head of the economic committee of Shanghai’s Nanhui district, where the theme park will be built, was quoted saying by South China Morning Post.

The China Daily had raised the possibility, saying preparations were going ahead full steam.

“We have not yet got central government approval for the Disneyland project,” a Shanghai government spokesman was quoted saying in SCMP.

Plans for a Shanghai Disneyland emerged in 2005 but were suspended when the city’s Communist Party boss Chen Liangyu was implicated in a corruption investigation last September.
