Shanghai Disney marks 1st anniversary

SHANGHAI Disney Resort marked its first anniversary today, as guests and cast from home and abroad gathered together to commemorate the moment in the resort with special activities hosted throughout the day.

“Shanghai Disney Resort’s first anniversary is cause for great celebration for everyone involved in bringing this spectacular dream to life,” said Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company. “We’re grateful to the people of China for making this unique destination a tremendous success - more than 11 million guests have already visited, and we look forward to welcoming many more in the years to come.”

The resort’s theme park, Shanghai Disneyland, opened early this morning for a special opening moment celebrated by the resort’s leadership and invited guests.

A grand celebration ceremony was held in the night at Enchanted Storybook Castle, where floating lanterns hovered above the theme park.

Shanghai Disneyland has welcomed more than 11 million guests in its first year of operation. The resort’s rapidly growing popularity and extremely high levels of guest satisfaction added to both shareholders’ confidence in the growing demand for the overall development of China’s tourism industry, the resort said.

With its popularity with guests from across China, the resort has already announced its first post-opening expansion, a new immersive land themed to the Toy Story franchise, set to open in 2018.
