As we continue to wait… and wait… and wait… for any real information about Shanghai Disneyland, we have to look for clues anywhere we can find them. A choice new tidbit comes from this job posting on the official Disney hiring site; in case it disappears, here’s a key quote:

This includes the design, development, construction, and turnover phases of the two hotels associated with the Shanghai Disney Resort. Business units represented include Housekeeping, Front Desk, Food and Beverage, Merchandise, Security, Horticulture and Recreation.
