Shanghai Disneyland announces opening date as Disney prepares to open its newest park
Construction on Disneyland Shanghai is in the final stages as Disney announces that the newest Disney resort will be opening on June 16.
“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 A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company. “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.”
The new theme park resort will feature one park, two hotels, retail, a dining and entertainment district.
Some of the new rides inside Shanghai Disneyland include TRON Lightcycle Power Run and the first-ever Pirate themed land, Treasure Cove.
The Shanghai Disneyland castle will also be the largest Disney castle ever built, standing 196.8 feet tall. Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom stands 183 feet tall for comparison.
