Disney's second-largest theme park to open in Shanghai on 16 June

Disney’s theme park in Shanghai will open on 16 June. The $5.5-billion Shanghai Disney Resort will host a multi-day, grand opening celebration, culminating in a welcoming ceremony for the resort’s first official guests on 16 June.

This will be Disney’s second-largest theme park, cheaper than only the US media conglomerate’s resort in Orlando, Fla.

Scheduled to open in December 2015, the project was delayed because Disney and its Chinese partner, the Shanghai Shendi Group, wanted to add more attractions.

“When it opens in June, Shanghai Disney resort will be a one-of-a-kind, world-class destination that is authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese.

The resort reflects Disney’s legendary storytelling along with China’s rich culture, and showcases some of the most creative and innovative experiences we’ve ever created.

We’re looking forward to showing it to the world and sharing it with the people of China for generations to come,” said Disney chairman, CEO Robert A. Iger.

In 2014, Disney and Shanghai Shendi Group, joint shareholders of the Resort, announced an accelerated expansion plan to capitalise on the tremendous growth in China’s tourism sector – adding additional attractions, entertainment and other offerings to increase capacity at the theme park.

There will be 99 acres of gardens, lakes and parkland.

On opening day, Shanghai Disney Resort will include: — Shanghai Disneyland, a theme park with six themed lands: Adventure Isle, Gardens of Imagination, Mickey Avenue, Tomorrowland, Treasure Cove and Fantasyland, all centered around the Enchanted Storybook Castle, the largest and tallest castle at any Disney theme park.

Guests will enjoy attractions and live entertainment shows – many of them first-of-a-kind for a Disney park. — The Shanghai Disneyland Hotel and Toy Story Hotel, imaginatively themed resort-hotels conveniently located near the theme park.

The Shanghai Disneyland Hotel is an elegant Art Nouveau-inspired resort with a touch of Disney magic and imagination, while the Toy Story Hotel immerses guests in a world inspired by the toys from the Disney-Pixar series of Toy Story animated films. — Disneytown, an international shopping, dining and entertainment district, adjacent to the entrance of Shanghai Disneyland.

Disneytown will include the Walt Disney Grand Theatre, home to the first-ever Mandarin production of the Broadway Disney’s The Lion King.

Another attraction guests will be the World of Disney Store, offering a collection of Disney merchandise, including many products designed especially for Shanghai Disney Resort.
