After 10 years of planning and five years of construction the Walt Disney Company has finally revealed an opening date for Shanghai Disney.

The Shanghai Disney Resort will be opening for the first time on June 16, 2016!

Disney had this to say in their press release:

Once operational, a visit to Shanghai Disney Resort will be unlike any experience in the world and will demonstrate Disney’s relentless innovation and famous creativity. With Shanghai Disneyland, a Magic Kingdom-style theme park with six themed lands, two richly themed hotels, Disneytown, a huge shopping, dining and entertainment district and Wishing Star Park available to guests at opening, Shanghai Disney Resort will not only showcase the best of Disney’s storytelling but also celebrate China’s incredibly rich heritage and cultural elements to create a one-of-a-kind destination. From world-class attractions to Broadway-quality entertainment, the newest Disney destination will offer premium experiences that guests can only find at Shanghai Disney Resort.

I for one cannot wait to see the full extent of what Disney has in place here and I think it could be one of the most innovative theme parks in the world!
