SHANGHAI Disney Resort has received over 10 million visitors since its grand opening in June 2016, the resort announced today.

The milestone was reached in just under 11 months after the resort’s opening, making it the most popular theme park opened in China.

It is the result of the "incredible popularity" of Shanghai Disneyland with guests from across China and around the world, the management of the resort said.

The resort today also announced to start a month-long first anniversary celebration, leading up to a major celebration in the resort’s theme park on June 16 with themed décor, limited merchandise and special dining experiences.

Starting May 24, guests are also encouraged to share their special memories in their first-year visits to the resort on the resort’s official social media account. Disney fans who submit their memories will have the chance to be selected and invited as special guests at the first anniversary event on June 16.

“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," said Philippe Gas, general manager of the resort. It has announced its first expansion with the addition of Toy Story Land, set to open in 2018.

The resort has hired over 10,000 employees, known as the Cast Members, from Shanghai and across China, and generated thousands of additional indirect jobs for tourism and cultural industry professionals, the resort said today.

The resort’s attractions and live entertainment have also been recognized by top global and China awards from Themed Entertainment Association (TEA), International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), Visual Effects Society (VES) to China Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (CAAPA).
