According to chinese newspapers, "Construction began today on Shanghai Disneyland's Castle, setting another milestone in the development of the amusement park. The Enchanted Storybook Castle, designed to be the world's tallest and largest Disney castle, is going to be the centerpiece of Shanghai Disneyland. Workers today sank the first pile into ground to build the castle's foundation.
The Enchanted Storybook Castle, in the heart of the theme park, will combine entertainment, dining and performance into one. Its winding staircase will lead visitors on a "Once Upon a Time Adventure" with unforgettable experiences.
The castle will also delight visitors with a boat ride that goes through a secret underground chamber in which fountains of light will dance in shimmering pools and surround visitors with magic, music and color".
WDI Imagineer Bob Weis who is at the head of the Shanghaî Disneyland project posted today on his blog some pictures that you can see HERE.
More infos have also been released on SDL opening date and so far it is now scheduled for end 2015, which is just in two and a half years from now so i suppose that SDL Imagineers will be really busy in the next 30 months to be ready on time!
