The Shanghai Disney Resort celebrated the 10th anniversary of its groundbreaking on Thursday, with president and general manager Joe Schott expressing great confidence in the resort's future.

"We believe in the long-term benefits of the China market. That's what you'll see us continue to do," Schott says.

Since its opening on June 16, 2016, the Shanghai Disney Resort has set many records, which include beating market expectations by welcoming more than 11 million visitors in its first year of operations.

The main features of the resort saw rapid expansion of its operations. The first major expansion, Disney∙Pixar Toy Story Land, opened on April 26, 2018, making Shanghai Disneyland the fastest Disneyland in the world to expand after opening.

Shanghai plans to double the number of scenic spots and tourism projects with more than 10 million visits annually in 2025, as compared with last year.
