Shanghai Disneyland will feature a production center, which will showcase some of the technical and creative wizardry, which will be used at the site, the company said on Friday.
The first of its type in Asia, and scheduled to be open by the second quarter of 2013, the center will become the "heart" of show production for Shanghai Disneyland, the company said, highlighting the park's most complex technology before it is permanently installed within the theme park, the company said.
The 3.9-sq-km Shanghai Disney resort will be the world's sixth Disney amusement park and the first one on the Chinese mainland.
Total investment is expected to hit 24.5 billion yuan ($3.84 billion) on the park and 4.5 billion yuan on hotels and accompanying retail, dining and entertainment facilities.
