Stunningshots of Disney’s theme park under construction in Shanghai


At an eye-watering cost of £3.6billion andspread across almost 1,000 acres of an old farmland, these pictures show Disneyland Shanghai ahead of its grand opening next year.


The highly anticipated theme park willinclude the world's largest Disney castle called the 'EnchantedStorybook'.


It will also feature a production of 'TheLion King' in Chinese and a pirate-themed zone based on the 'Pirates of theCaribbean' movies.


An artificial mountain will loom over thepark, becoming the highest hill in Shanghai's Pudong district, and a 420-roomDisneyland Hotel is planned in an 'elegant Art Nouveau style', with anotherbased on the Toy Story films.


On a commercial level, an adjacent 'Disneytown' will have 495,000 square feetof shops, restaurants and a 1,200-seat theatre.


As well as the Disney attractions, the park will also have a 'distinctlyChinese' character, namely through a park called the 'Garden of the TwelveFriends'.


Shanghai Disney will also have 12 mosaicsthat will exhibit the Chinese Zodiac's 12 signs, but with the use of Disneycharacters.


It is hoped the park will open to thepublic in the spring of 2016 and welcome more than seven million visitors ayear, eventually rising to 16 million.


It is built on a farmland in the once ruralarea of Chuansha, near the city's Pudong International Airport.
