Shang­hai Dis­ney re­ceives over 1 mil­lion vis­i­tors

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The Shang­hai Dis­ney Re­sort has re­ceived more than one mil­lion vis­i­tors since open­ing on June 16.

“Ticket sales are strong. Peo­ple are stay­ing in the park longer than we ever imag­ined they would,” said Robert Iger, chair­man and CEO of Walt Dis­ney Com­pany, adding that ho­tel oc­cu­pancy is hold­ing steady at 95 per­cent. “It’s ob­vi­ously far too early to iden­tify trends and make fore­casts or pro­jec­tions, but Shang­hai Dis­ney Re­sort is clearly off to a strong start,” he said.

“Be­fore the gates even opened we were al­ready plan­ning for the fu­ture. Our first ex­pan­sion is now un­der con­struc­tion, and we have plenty of room to add new lands, at­trac­tions, ho­tels and more,” said Iger.

Lo­cated in the Pudong Dis­trict, it is the first Dis­ney re­sort on the Chi­nese main­land. The reg­u­lar price of ad­mis­sion is $57. Peak pric­ing for hol­i­days and week­ends is $75. With an in­vest­ment of around $5.2 bil­lion, the re­sort is a joint ven­ture be­tween the Walt Dis­ney Com­pany and Shang­hai Shendi Group.
