Disney to build park in Shanghai

Work has started on Disney’s first amusement park in mainland China. The park in Shanghai is expected to cost £2.3bn to build and is due to open by 2016. The attraction, on the site of the 2010 Expo, will be home to the Shanghai Disneyland, two hotels, a lake and a shopping mall. The entertainment giant is also expanding its Hong Kong resort, with work expected to end in 2013.
