Topping out of 1st hotel in Shanghai Disney Resort

The first of two Disney-themed hotels in the Shanghai Disney Resort topped out on Wednesday.

Located inside the 3.9-square–kilometer resort set to open at the end of 2015, the seven-floor hotel with 800 rooms will be one of the main accommodation options and feature key views including the resort's central lake.

Local media have reported that a 7-star Atlantis hotel could also be developed outside but near the resort. Chinese developer Fosun International has said it plans to build a new ultra-luxury water-based resort near the attraction in Shanghai’s Pudong district.

The hotel topping out was preceded by the installation last week of the first vertical steel for Shanghai Disneyland's "mountain", which will be located in a key area of the theme park and will be the second-highest structure at Shanghai Disney Resort after the Enchanted Storybook Castle. On completion it will also stand as the highest "mountain" in Shanghai's Pudong New District.
