Review on Mickey Sends His Passport in for Mo

Way back in the not so distant past of 2009, we found out that Shanghai was on Mickeys radar for his latest theme park. Fast forward about a year, and now it seems that Chinese officials have given the green light for Disney to bring its bulldozers into the country to prepare the foundation for the worlds newest Disneyland.

Sure theres already a park in Hong Kong, but it seems that the biggest prize for Disney has always been to set up a place filled with rides, attractions, and gift shops somewhere within mainland China. After all, things in Hong Kong havent been crazy successful, so maybe theyre thinking it will be different away from the water.

Theyve reached an agreement with the Shanghai Shendi Groupthis company was set up specifically to lure Mickey, Goofy, and Donaldand it now appears that all systems are go for Disneyland Shanghai.

The Chinese government still has to give things the final stamp of approval, but that only seems like a formality at this point. Details are still sketchy, so we dont know if Space Mountain and other favorites will be making an appearance. At a minimum wed expect it's a small world and a castle devoted to a princess, and hopefully something new, exciting, and slightly different than the offerings from other Disneyland parks.

Construction should start sooner than later assuming everything else goes smoothly, as the rumor is that the park will open up at some point in 2013. It's not cheap, as it will cost just shy of $4 billion to build will be spread out across 1.5 square miles. No renderings or sneak peeks just yet, but as soon as we see some, well pass them along.
