Shanghai Disney Resort to Open 16 June 2016

The first Disney resort in Mainland China and the sixth Disney resort worldwide, will open to guests on 16 June with a festive dedication ceremony in front of the Enchanted Storybook Castle.

The Shanghai Disney Resort represents one of the largest foreign investment projects in China's history, and Disney's largest investment to date outside of the United States.

 At opening, the first phase of the resort is within a land area of 963 acres with additional land available to accommodate future expansion, including additional theme park and other related resort developments.

"The grand opening of Shanghai Disney Resort is one of the proudest moments in the history of The Walt Disney Company," said Bob Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company.

 Shanghai Disney Resort features a newly designed Magic Kingdom-style theme park, Shanghai Disneyland, with six themed lands filled with immersive attractions, including Adventure Isle, Gardens of Imagination, Mickey Avenue, Tomorrowland, Treasure Cove and Fantasyland.

 Those lands are located around the iconic Enchanted Storybook Castle, the tallest, largest and most interactive castle at any Disney park.

 The resort also features live entertainment, two hotels, a shopping, dining and entertainment district called Disneytown and a 98-acre recreational area called Wishing Star Park with a lake that is open to the public.

Shanghai Disney Resort broke ground in 2011.
