Introduction to Shanghai Disneyland
Shanghai Disneyland has set ticket prices below that of the Hong Kong Disney park. The first Disney theme park on the mainland will also feature an array of Chinese elements to provide a unique tourism experience for visitors. The park is expected to open in mid-2015.

History of the Shanghai Disneyland
In 2000, it was rumored that the construction of a park known as "Shanghai Disneyland" would begin in 2005, and be completed in 2014. This was originally denied by Hong Kong International Theme Parks President Bill Ernest.On December 5, 2007, the assessment agency reported that construction of "Shanghai Disneyland" would start after the Expo 2010 Shanghai China, with an investment amounting to 40 billion yuan.

On March 7, 2008, Ming Pao Daily News reported that Disney's first choice for construction was in Pudong, Shanghai.

November 1, 2009: While attending the 21st session of the International Business Leaders Advisory Council, Han Zheng, Mayor of Shanghai said, in response to the media's questions: "Shanghai Municipal Government will, in the near future, convene a special press conference to release the latest [information] and to answer your questions.” Some people say that the "Shanghai Disneyland" project was approved in October 2009, but due to the low-key style of the Shanghai Municipal Government, and the need to fine-tune details between the two sides, as well as the need to change the 4 regulations, so subject to 100% to determine the rear will be publicly announced.

At 8:30 on November 4, 2009, an announcement, authorized by the Shanghai Municipal Government Press Office, was made: "Shanghai Disneyland project application report has been approved by the relevant state departments. Estimated total investment of 24.4 billion renminbi." Land near the proposed production site increased in value dramatically after the announcement was made.

January 18, 2011 A mainland government official today has confirmed that Shanghai Disneyland which is scheduled now to open in 2015 will be 2-3 times the size of Hong Kong Disneyland and will eventually contain three theme parks. Speculation is that these three theme parks will include parks based on Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Animal Kingdom.
April 7, 2011 Groundbreaking begins at the Shanghai Disneyland Resort site.

Construction of Shanghai Disneyland
As shown from early concept art, it appears that the Adventureland area, which traditionally has always been placed to the left of The Hub, has been moved to the traditional location of Tomorrowland (the right of the hub), which is an element taken from the original designs for Disneyland. Unique to Shanghai Disneyland will be an 11 acre 'green area' located in front of the castle.

Creative Overview
Throughout Shanghai Disneyland, classic Disney characters and storytelling will blend with all-new attractions and experiences designed specifically for the people of China. The park will consist of several themed "lands," each with their own distinct attractions, entertainment and experiences. At the heart of the park will be Storybook Castle, the most interactive Disney castle yet, complete with entertainment, dining and performance spaces. It will truly be an attraction unto itself.

Innovation and Technology
Innovative new technology has always been a part of the Disney vacation experience, and Shanghai Disney Resort will continue that tradition. Shanghai Disneyland will take advantage of advances in technology to place Guests in exciting worlds where they can be part of the action like never before.

The feature of Longhua Temple
The Longhua Temple is the largest temple in Shanghai, and the pagoda is the only one in Shanghai that existed before modern times. It has a main south to north axis along which five of the buildings are located. The axis is 194 meters or 637 feet long. In order, the five buildings are the Maitreya Hall (Mile Dian), the Emperor of Heaven Hall (Tianwang Dian), the Grand Hall of the Great Sage (Daxiong Baodian), the Three Sages Hall (Sansheng Dian), and the Abbot's Hall (Fangzhang Shi). Along with these, other highlights are a vegetarian restaurant, the temple fair, a side room with 500 golden statues, the Bell and Drum Tower and the Longhua Pagoda.

Bell Tower & Drum Tower: These buildings are off the axis. In the Bell Tower, there is a bronze bell that weighs 3,000 kilograms or 3.3 tons. It was cast in 1894. On the evening of New Year’s Eve on December 31st, it is a tradition to strike the bell 108 times to ring in the year. People can pay about 50 RMB or 7.50 USD to strike it three times. Bell ringing on New Year’s Eve is a common tradition in Buddhist temples that have a bell in East Asia.

The Longhua Pagoda: The 40.4 meter-high Longhua Pagoda is made of brick, and the staircases are made of wood. It is red, has 7 stories, and it looks like a delicate Song-era pagoda. The brick tubular shell of the pagoda is said to have been first built in 977. The wooden staircase and the 7 roofs are said to be of recent construction.

Room with 500 Golden Statues: Just outside of the main entrance of the third hall called the Daxiong Baodian where there is a big golden sitting Budda statue, there is a side hall where you can see 500 little gold statues arranged in rows. They shine and glitter in the light. From the austere courtyard with the smoke of fires and burning incense, the golden and bright statues are a striking contrast.

Temple Fair: There is a temple fair on the 3rd day of the 3rd month of the lunar calendar. During this time, people can see the peach blossoms. See China Spring Travel Guide

Vegetarian Restaurant: It is common for active Buddhist complexes in China to have a vegetarian restaurant or cafeteria. There is one behind the fourth hall. It serves basic meals between 11 am and 2 pm. See places to eat in Shanghai

The Grand Hall of the Great Sage (Daxiong Baodian): The third hall will probably be the most impressive of the five main halls on the axis. In it, there is a big golden statue of Buddha along with several statues of arhats. Chanting music is played, and people bow and kneel in front of them.
