The Walt Disney Co. anticipates having a final agreement to build Shanghai Disneyland within "a few months," Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger said last week. Iger told analysts at a media conference in New York that he expects it will then take five to six years to build and open the resort, which would begin with a Magic Kingdom-style theme park and amenities such as hotels and a shopping-and-dining district.

I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere, but apparently Disney is having a cemetery moved as part of the construction project:
To say I am a bit disturbed over this is quite an understatement.
Disney isn't doing it, the government is. And why is that disturbing, exactly?
I see no difference between the government and Disney in this situation- Disney knows the Government is acting on it's behalf to evict the dead in pursuit of their park. And while I can't assume to know what would and would not upset you, I sure as hell know I would be pissed if they moved my family grave site for a Disneyland.
I'm not a big fan of burial in the first place, but if I were dead in the ground, I wouldn't care. Not like I'm using my remains anyway.
Oh great. Now whenever something goes wrong at the new park, like a death or natural disaster of some kind, it will be blamed on a supernatural curse; a curse brought about because of the moving of the cemetery.
It's kind of cool. ;)
