HONG KONG -- The Walt Disney Co. launched its first
Chinese-language Web site and reiterated its interest in building a
second theme park in China.
The site, at www.disney.com.cn, will be operated with a Chinese
partner and will tout the company's theme parks, television
programs and movies.
As with Disney.com, it will feature Disney's online
subscription service, Blast, which consists of games and
attractions for children.
Disney, which is building a theme park in Hong Kong to open by
2006, might build a second in mainland China.
Company officials would not confirm a report in a Chinese
newspaper that Disney would open a theme park in Beijing in time
for the 2008 Summer Olympics.
