Here's some news that'll tickle your mouse ears -- assuming you're wearing a set of Mickey Mouse ears ATM -- and get you zippity doo dah-ing: Disney is opening a new park. And it's in one of the fastest-developing places in the world that's not called "Rhode Island." Nope, it's in China. Sorry, Rhode Island.
Started two years ago, construction on the new Shanghai Disney Resort is finally set to finish, with an opening date set for June 16, 2016, making this the first Disney park in mainland China. It's basically like all the other Disney resorts around the world, but in China. And according to Disney chairman, Robert A. Iger, “When it opens in June, Shanghai Disney resort will be a one-of-a-kind, world-class destination that is authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese." Which makes sense, again, because it's a Disney park in China.
