War of the Walts coming to Disney Tokyo, Shanghai

Shanghai Disney Resort is gradually taking shape as the late-2015 opening date approaches.

SHANGHAI -- Rivalry between Japan and China will soon become the stuff of fantasy, as Shanghai's new Disney Resort opens at the end of 2015. 

     Construction of the newest Disney theme park began in April 2011 in Pudong New Area, in the east of Shanghai. Three years on, the tranquil countryside has been transformed. A four-lane road awaits the anticipated crowds expected to arrive by car. The giant resort site covers roughly 3.9 million sq. meters, and construction is in full swing. Cranes form a temporary skyline, marking the progress of the newest Disney location.
