Disney still hopes to build a second park in China
The Walt Disney Company is still looking to build a second theme park resort in China, according to news reports.
"We are sure to build a second park in China in the long run, but we are now reviewing the market," said Wing T. Chao, vice head of development in the Asian and Pacific region for the Walt Disney Company.
The entertainment company opened its newest theme park in 2005, Hong Kong Disneyland, which had struggled initially with meeting cultural and financial expectations, despite much research and planning on Disney's part.
Rumors had Disney planning to build a second theme park in Shanghai. However, the company says it is reviewing other cities as well in China.
For now, though, Disney will focus on expanding and improving Hong Kong Disneyland, which is getting a version of the popular attraction "it's a small world" in its Fantasyland. (source)
