Milestones in Disney project

CONSTRUCTION milestones were reached at the Shanghai Disney Resort yesterday, with the first of two hotels topped out and work starting on an artificial mountain.

Concrete was poured into the last section of the roof structure of the hotel building, while the first vertical steel support for the “mountain” was installed at the Pudong New Area resort, which is scheduled to open by the end of next year.

“With these two construction milestones, progress on vertical construction of the Shanghai Disney Resort continues on track” a resort official said.

The hotel will have 800 rooms over seven floors where guests can have full views of the Shanghai Disneyland, its retail, dining and entertainment district and the resort’s central lake, the official said.

The “mountain” — which will be the highest “peak” in the Pudong New Area — will stand in a key area of the theme park.

Covering 3.9 square kilometers, the resort will blend classic Disney storytelling with characters and attractions tailored for China, say officials.
