Shanghai Disney lines up acts to celebrate Women's Day

March kicks off with a name change at Shanghai Disney Resort as Minnie's custom-made sign (Ni, 妮) is back to greet guests at the Entry Portal, feminizing one of the characters in the park's Chinese name (Disney, 迪士尼).

The floral Mickey by the park's main entrance will make its annual transformation into floral Minnie using blooms of the season.

International Women's Day will shine a spotlight on Disney princesses and queens.

For the entire month of March, Shanghai Disneyland is celebrating these female royal figures who inspire women and girls the world over with the courage to pursue their dreams.

Fans can spot Disney royalty on the castle balcony, at Storybook Court and in parades throughout the month. A segment dedicated to Disney princesses and queens will be projected onto the castle before the nightly spectacular fireworks and light show.

The Royal Banquet Hall will present a feast fit for a princess with flavors and dishes inspired by different princesses. Whet your appetite with Tiana-style Creole Gumbo and Cinderella's chocolate slipper, and enjoy a refreshed dining experience that includes new outfits for Disney friends at the restaurant. Menus include princess-themed afternoon tea and sets, and a kid's menu for the little princes and princesses in the family with cute details like Snow White's apple for dessert.

Disney friends on Mickey Avenue are putting on their new spring costumes, and "Color-Fest: A Street Party!" returns to Mickey Avenue in a dazzling rainbow of colors to delight the senses and lift spirits. Minnie will be part of the surprise squad, and LinaBell will join "Good Morning," the daily character show staged on Mickey Avenue each morning.

In celebration of International Women's Day, Shanghai Disney Resort is rolling out limited-time afternoon tickets for visits on March 7 and 8, offering special access to Shanghai Disneyland after 3pm for just 216 yuan (US$34) for a standard ticket and 163 yuan for children, seniors and guests with disabilities.

In April comes the celebration of Chip 'n' Dale's birthday, including a surprise birthday party on April 2.
