Shanghai Farmers Lose Fields as Disney Builds Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney Co.'s newest castle may rise from the Shanghai fields where retired farmer Jin Xinmei and her husband grow Chinese cabbage, potatoes and strawberries to supplement their $103 monthly pension.

Jin, 72, said the local government already told her that she and her husband will have to relocate from their native Qigan Village in the Pudong district so Disney can build its newest theme park. Jin wasn't told how much the government will pay for her 30-square-meter (323-square-foot) house and its backyard vegetable patch, she said.
