China builds icy Disneyland

A Disneyland made entirely of ice and snow has been built in China's freezing northern city of Harbin as part of the city's Ice Festival.

Local authorities hope the park, featuring Disney characters and rides made of ice, will help attract around 800,000 tourists.

Harbin, on the edge of Siberia, is one of China's coldest places, where temperatures can drop to -35 degree Celsius.
