Shanghai Disneyland is officially open

DISNEY Cast Members lined up along the Mickey Avenue near the entrance of the Shanghai Disneyland to welcome the first batch of guests after the theme park officially opened around 11:30am today.

The Cast Members, that is how Disney employees are called, waved and clapped hands as visitors braved the drizzle to get a look at the first Disneyland on China’s mainland.

Many of them rushed to the popular attractions in the park such as “Soaring over the Horizon” at the Adventure Isle. Others posed in front of the iconic castle.
A security staff at the park entrance said visitors started arriving at the gate as early as 4:30am when some of the staff members began to make preparation for the official grand opening.
The park will be open till 10pm today. 

Guests must have a ticket to enter as no tickets are being sold at the site today.
Shawn Ryan Holt from the United States wore a hat with Mickey’s ear on it and held a Mickey Mouse doll while entering the theme park.
“I used to study at a college in Orlando and became a big Disney fan. So I flew to Shanghai and waited in front of the gate at 9am today on the opening day of the Shanghai Disneyland,” he told Shanghai Daily.
