The US$5.5 billion facility will feature everything from an Enchanted Storybook Castle — the tallest in any Disney park — to a "Toy Story" hotel and a theater with a Chinese-language production of Broadway hit "The Lion King."
Disney says the park will also reflect Chinese culture.
The blend of Disney and Chinese cultures will be visible in many classic Chinese designs, such as a teahouse named Wandering Moon, a garden mosaic depicting the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac using images of Disney characters and local shikumen architecture.
Celebrations of seasonal festivals and stage shows will also incorporate Chinese language, performers, theatrics and acrobatics.
Shanghai Disney Resort will feature new attractions not seen at the five other Disney resorts worldwide, including a Magic Kingdom-style theme park with six different "lands," two themed hotels, Disneytown — a huge shopping district — and Wishing Star Park.
Construction of the resort started in 2011 and is now complete. An extensive period will now follow to ensure the resort is fully operational and ready to greet millions of guests.
The resort is expected to bring 5 million new passengers annually to the Pudong International Airport after it opens. It is also expected to attract 10 million visits a year.
