Shanghai, China (January 22, 2014) — In the lead-up to the Chinese Spring Festival, progress on vertical construction of Shanghai Disney Resort continues on track to open at the end of next year, with the celebration of two important new construction milestones, the topping out of the resort’s first Disney-themed hotel and the start of construction of a “mountain” in the resort’s theme park.
The first of two Disney-themed hotels was successfully topped out today, with resort and partner leadership pouring the last concrete onto the roof section of the building’s dramatic roof top structure. The hotel will feature 800 rooms over seven floors and will offer Guests stunning views of Shanghai Disneyland, the retail, dining and entertainment district and the resort’s central lake.
The hotel topping out was preceded by the installation last week of the first vertical steel for Shanghai Disneyland’s “mountain”, marking the official start of vertical construction for another remarkable attraction at the resort’s Magic Kingdom-style theme park. The mountain will be located in a key area of the theme park and will be the second highest structure at Shanghai Disney Resort after the Enchanted Storybook Castle. On completion it will also stand as the highest “mountain” in Shanghai’s Pudong New District. Disney has a long-standing tradition of creating immersive and unforgettable experiences for Guests around the world. At each Disney park and resort, classic Disney characters and storytelling blend with uniquely-designed and finely-crafted attractions, from rockwork to jungles, lakes and trees, to create exciting and extraordinary immersive places for Guests of all ages to enjoy. The iconic mountains at each Disney park complement the entertainment and rides in different themed lands to transport Guests to exciting worlds beyond their imagination.
By introducing world-class creativity, quality and safety standards and advanced technology to the design and construction of Shanghai Disney Resort, Disney is setting a new benchmark for local industries. With both exciting progress on vertical construction at the build site and a strong emphasis on quality, innovation and safety, Shanghai Disney Resort is indeed reaching new heights.
