China Daily (Canada) - - SHANGHAI -

the num­ber of vis­i­tors ex­pected to visit Shang­hai's Dis­ney­land in

the first year

800-room Toy Story Ho­tel — but in­dus­try ex­perts be­lieve that there are not enough rooms to meet the de­mand. About 15 mil­lion peo­ple are ex­pected to visit the Shang­hai Dis­ney Re­sort in its first year, with the fig­ure grow­ing to be­tween 25 and 30 mil­lion in the next few years.

Zeng Guang, chief an­a­lyst of Gu­osen Se­cu­ri­ties, told the me­dia that the open­ing of the Dis­ney Re­sort in June will give the re­sort op­er­a­tor some time to bet­ter pre­pare for the peak sea­son in the sum­mer. He also ex­pects fam­i­lies to ac­count for re­peated vis­its and overnight stays.

Lo­cated in the heart of the Yangtze River Delta, the most pros­per­ous re­gion in the coun­try, the Shang­hai Dis­ney­land can be eas­ily ac­cessed by peo­ple from many cities that are be­tween one and two hours away via ex­press trains.

Jiang Yiyi, di­rec­tor of the China Tourism Academy’s In­ter­na­tional Tourism De­vel­op­ment In­sti­tute, said the Shang­hai Dis­ney Re­sort will also bring in­bound trav­el­ers from over­seas as the re­sort has cre­ated plenty of at­trac­tions that are unique or filled with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics, that will likely ap­peal to in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors in neigh­bor­ing coun­tries.
