Transcript for Disney Shanghai: First Look at New Theme Park in China
Finally tonight, a new frontier for Disney. ABC's bob woodruff takes us inside Disney Shanghai. Reporter: Tonight, a first glimpse at Disney's newest, happiest place on Earth. 1,000 acres, 12,000 employees, four years in the making. This is Shanghai disneyland. I am right here in the center of this resort. It is the enchanted storybook castle. When this opens it will be the tallest and biggest castle in all of Disney. Inside the massive castle, a magical boat ride, restaurant, and stage. There's a manmade mountain with a towering waterfall. An even more modern twist on tomorrowland -- this roller coaster is based on the movie "Tron." Traditional Chinese artistry at the heart of the park's design. Top Chinese acrobats already rehearsing for a show based on Disney's "Tarzan." It's the signature resort worldwide for ABC's parent company Disney. This will cost upwards of $5.5 billion to complete. This is going to open in the spring? Spring 2016. I'm confident we're going to make the date that we've got in mind. Reporter: For "Nightline," I'm bob woodruff in Shanghai.
