Disney Gets the Go-ahead for China Theme Park

China’s economic planning agency has given final approval to Disney to open a theme park in Shanghai, BBC reports:

The National Development and Reform Commission said the long-awaited park would be built in the city’s eastern Pudong district.

Earlier this month, the Chinese government gave its approval for the park after years of talks.

Disney has been gradually expanding its presence in China since opening a theme park in Hong Kong in 2005.

Final details for the Shanghai park have yet to be announced.
