Shanghai Disneyland has welcomed its 10 millionth guest. The milestone was reached less than a year after the resort’s grand opening in June 2016, making it the most popular theme park ever opened in China.
In a statement, Philippe Gas, general manager of Shanghai Disney Resort, said, “We’re extremely pleased and humbled to have welcomed our first 10 million guests to Shanghai Disneyland, and extend our deepest thanks and appreciation to our guests for their support.
“The resort’s rapidly growing popularity and extremely high levels of guest satisfaction add to our confidence in the growing demand for our attractions and entertainment, and the overall development of China’s tourism industry. We can’t wait to celebrate our first anniversary with our partners, guests and Cast Members, all of whom have contributed to our early success.”
Shanghai Disney Resort is already looking forward to the first expansion of the theme park with the addition of Toy Story Land, scheduled to open in 2018.
