.China Approves Disney Theme Park in Shanghai
.China Approves Disney Theme Park in Shanghai
LOS ANGELES — After a courtship of about 20 years, the Walt Disney Company has won approval from the central government of China to build a Disneyland-style theme park in Shanghai, Robert A. Iger, Disney’s chief executive, said Tuesday. Skip to next paragraph Add to Portfolio Disney, Walt, Co Go to your Portfolio » The agreement for a Shanghai Disneyland is a landmark deal that carries enormous cultural and financial implications. Analysts estimate the initial park — not including hotels and resort infrastructure — will cost $3.5 billion, making it one of the largest-ever foreign investments in China. The initial resort, with a mix of shopping areas, hotels and a Magic Kingdom-style theme park, will sprawl across 1,000 acres of the city’s Pudong district — with the theme park occupying about 100 of those acres. It would be a little bigger than Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., and on par with the parks in Paris and Tokyo. It is expected to open in five or six years. Disney’s plans are ambitious: If further development of the resort happens as expected over the coming decades — still a big if — it will encompass more than 1,700 acres and have a capacity rivaling Disney World in Florida, which attracts about 45 million annual visitors. The company’s goal is to create an engine that will drive demand among China’s 1.3 billion residents for other Disney products, from video games to Broadway-style shows to DVDs. Disney typically relies on the creation of new Disney TV channels to pump its brand abroad, but China’s limits on foreign media have made that impossible. The approval, notably, did not come with concessions from China on the television front. Mr. Iger called the approval “a very significant milestone” in a statement, taking care to praise China as “one of the most dynamic, exciting and important countries in the world.” A spokeswoman declined to elaborate on details. Throwing open its doors to such a uniquely American — and permanent — entertainment experience is a milestone for China, which has aggressively protected its culture from Westernization in general and Hollywood in particular. Only 20 non-Chinese films are allowed to be shown in theaters each year, for instance, and those are often edited. “Disney, perhaps the most iconic American brand of all, is supercharged in this department,” said Orville Schell, director of the Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations. It was unclear what convinced China to finally approve the deal after years of off-again, on-again talks. The prospect of creating tens of thousands of jobs at a tough economic moment might have played a role, Mr. Schell and other analysts said. Others have speculated that the timing involved President Obama’s inaugural visit to China later this month. Mr. Schell said he saw something more at work. “It’s a signal that now they will tolerate a certain kind of Western investment,” he said. Disney will own about 40 percent of the Shanghai resort, with the remainder owned by a holding company formed by a consortium of Chinese companies selected by the government, according to people with knowledge of the plan but who were not authorized to speak publicly. Only the Magic Kingdom-style portion of the project needed Beijing’s approval; Disney will now negotiate with Shanghai authorities on construction plans, but that is considered a matter of process. Details about rides are still being worked out, but there are to be a smattering of classic attractions and new rides developed specifically for Shanghai, perhaps incorporating Chinese stories and history. Disney is often accused of force-feeding its products to international markets and thus homogenizing culture. The company’s heavy-handed creation of Disneyland Paris in the early 1990s, for instance, was a public relations disaster; French farmers with pitch forks protested Disney. But the company, under new leadership since 2005, has worked to erase that imperious reputation by bending to the quirks of local markets and taking on local partners. Where appropriate, it has incorporated local customs; the decision to serve alcohol at Disneyland Paris helped turn that resort into a financial success. Disney has opened a chain of language schools in Shanghai, taking care to promise that the goal is to teach children to speak English, not to indoctrinate them with Princesses 101. (The company’s characters, however, are very visible at the centers.) Disney, which already does more business in China than most foreign media companies, has more than 600 employees in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Merchandise like plush toys and Mickey Mouse apparel is sold at about 6,000 branded locations. The company delivers about a dozen hours of television programming (“Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”) to local stations each week, and its Broadway unit has toured “The Lion King,” among other shows. But Disney executives have set a high bar for international growth, saying publicly before the recess
Steakhouse 55
Steakhouse 55
The Disneyland Hotel Anaheim, CA I'll say it: the food at the Disneyland Resort pales compared to Walt Disney World. As of late Disneyland is going through a bit of counter-service renaissance so I can't really complain there, but at the high end things don't look so great. The list of superb restaurants goes on and on at Walt Disney World, but I could count the good high-end restaurants at DLR on one hand that's missing a finger. Napa Rose at the Grand Californian is amazing; almost a fluke given the rest of the options and the only restaurant at the Disneyland Resort I'd say stands toe-to-toe with the best of Walt Disney World. Blue Bayou in Disneyland is great but you're mostly eating there for the atmosphere: you'll enjoy your meal but forget about it as soon as you leave. The Napa style of Wine Country Trattoria at DCA is great on a cool summer evening and the food is relatively good these days, but the menu is a bit limited and it's still not anything I'd exactly crave. Even the famous Club 33 is lost in time a bit with a menu that can be somewhat safe, with food that resembles a high-end restaurant more from 1971 than 2011. And that's pretty much it for high end restaurants at Disneyland as all the rest are designed to be more mid-range fare. But there's one more tucked away at the Disneyland Hotel, one most people forget about: Steakhouse 55. Steakhouse 55 is a straightforward, no-nonsense steakhouse and despite my low DLR expectations it's actually pretty good. It's not quite at the level of high-end steakhouses like Morton's or Mastro's or Ruth's Chris, but it's not too far from that and it's actually cheaper than any of those places (downright reasonable with an annual pass discount). In terms of food quality I'd put it somewhere between La Cellier and Yacthtsman's Steakhouse at Walt Disney World. The ambiance and theme are pulled off surprisingly well here, hitting on a high-end, vintage 1950's supper club feel that's driven home by the photos of 1950s Hollywood stars dining adorning the walls. In a way this feels like the cousin to the Brown Derby restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Where the Derby is recreating a famous Hollywood lunch spot of old, Steakhouse 55 is the steakhouse you ate at later that night. Best of all, pretty much only people staying at the Disneyland Hotel tend to eat here as most people don't even know this place exists. I doubt you'd ever need a reservation except on the busiest of days. If I exclude Club 33, this is easily the 2nd best restaurant at the Disneyland Resort, so go make like it's 1955 and get yourself a steak at Disneyland's best kept dining secret.

Eloise at the Plaza [VHS]
Based on the best-selling children's classic, ELOISE AT THE PLAZA brings one of literature's most beloved characters to life in a new heartwarming and hilarious movie that "is reason for celebration" (Orlando Sentinel). Eloise (Sofia Vassilieva) is a fun-loving little girl with a knack for finding adventure every place she looks. While under the care of her "rawther" wonderful nanny (Julie Andrews), Eloise tries to play matchmaker to a lonely prince and wrangle an invitation to the society event of the season. Join New York City's most adventurous six-year-old in this charming new family film. It's "as bright and quick-witted as its high-spirited heroine" (Newsday).

Kay Thompson's literary classic comes to life in this TV movie starring a free-spirited 6-year-old living in New York's Plaza Hotel. Sofia Vassilieva lights up the screen as Eloise, bearing an uncanny resemblance to Hilary Knight's illustrated namesake, from her bright red ribbon to her dainty designer shoes. Equal parts irrepressible imp and cherubic charmer, Eloise has the run of the hotel under the (mostly) attentive eye of beloved Nanny, played "rawther" marvelously by the timeless Julie Andrews. As the Plaza prepares for its debutante ball, a young prince arrives incognito, who Eloise befriends in her usual dervish style. The cast's comic timing transforms otherwise seeming cliches into a masterful romp through several stories-within-a-story, whether it's Eloise matchmaking a romantic liaison for Nanny, or orchestrating reconciliation between the prince and his estranged father. A making-of featurette and art lesson by Hilary Knight round out this heartwarming package, a fitting tribute to Eloise's creator. (Ages 5 and older) --Lynn Gibson
