Following a multi-day grand opening celebration, Shanghai Disney Resort will officially open its doors to the public on June 16.
Developed by The Walt Disney Company and Shanghai Shendi Group, the world-class attraction, located in the Pudong District of Shanghai, will be Disney’s first destination resort in mainland China, featuring classic Disney storytelling and characters with all-new experiences tailored for the people of China.
“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,” said Robert Iger, chairman and chief executive officer of Disney.
“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.”
On opening day, Shanghai Disney Resort will include Shanghai Disneyland, a world-class theme park with six themed lands; the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel and Toy Story Hotel; Disneytown, an international shopping, dining and entertainment district; and the Wishing Star Park recreational area.
The resort represents the largest foreign investment project in Shanghai, and one of the largest foreign investments in the history of China.
