Shanghai Disney Resort Hosts Spectacular One Year Anniversary Celebration With Guests From Across China

Shanghai Disney Resort marked its first anniversary tonight, as floating lanterns representing good fortune for the past, present and future hovered above Shanghai Disneyland during a magical celebration at the resort’s Enchanted Storybook Castle.

“Shanghai Disney Resort’s first anniversary is cause for great celebration for everyone involved in bringing this spectacular dream to life,” said Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company.  “We’re grateful to the people of China for making this unique destination a tremendous success — more than 11 million guests have already visited, and we look forward to welcoming many more in the years to come.”

Guests were entertained by the Mandarin version of “When You Wish Upon a Star,” as a montage of photos and videos highlighting events of the first year at Shanghai Disney Resort were projected on the façade of Enchanted Storybook Castle, as well as actual guest videos and images of magical memories from their visits to the authentically Disney, distinctly Chinese destination.

Shanghai Disneyland has proved to be enormously popular with guests from home and abroad, welcoming more than 11 million guests in its first year of operation. The resort exceeded every one of The Walt Disney Company’s expectations, from theme park attendance to guest satisfaction.

With its tremendous popularity with guests from across China, the resort has already announced its first post-opening expansion, a new immersive land themed to the Toy Story franchise, set to open in 2018.

The innovative attractions and entertainment at Shanghai Disneyland have earned top honors from across the theme park industry over the past year, including the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA), International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), Visual Effects Society (VES) and China Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (CAAPA).

Shanghai Disney Resort was one of the most ambitious projects in the history of The Walt Disney Company.  One year ago today, the wonder and imagination of Disney greeted the people of China in magical new ways as the gates opened to Shanghai Disneyland, a theme park like no other with the biggest, tallest castle in any Disney park, the first pirate-themed land and Disney’s most technologically advanced park to date.

Shanghai Disney Resort is filled with immersive Disney storytelling, thrilling attractions, spectacular live entertainment and memory-making experiences designed to inspire and delight Chinese guests. The world-class vacation destination includes a magical theme park with six themed lands, two imaginatively designed hotels, a Disneytown shopping and dining district, and Wishing Star Park recreational area.

Feel-good Fathers Day: An official ranking of Disney and Pixar dads

Great animated films share many attributes: stunning visuals, heartfelt emotion, humor. But many of them also share another trait: no mothers. If you are an animated character and your name is Bambi, Nemo, or Belle (to name just a few), you grew up without a mom (though occasionally, as in “Toy Story,” the single-parent trope is reversed).

Disney’s Iger Says Shanghai Resort Close to Breaking Even

‘Disney’s Newsies: The Broadway Musical!’ Returning to Cinemas Nationwide on August 5 and 9

Due to an immensely successful and record-breaking cinematic debut, Disney’s Newsies: The Broadway Musical! returns to movie theaters nationwide for a two-day encore presentation. Captured live at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre early last year, the event features Jeremy Jordan, who currently stars in the television series “Supergirl,” reprising the role he created as “Jack Kelly.”

Fathom Events partners with Disney Theatrical Productions to bring this spectacular stage show back to the big screen on Saturday, August 5 at 12:55 p.m. and Wednesday, August 9 at 7:00 p.m. (all local times), including special behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and creators.

Tickets for “Disney’s Newsies: The Broadway Musical!” can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com or participating theater box offices.

Joining Jordan are original Broadway cast members Kara Lindsay as “Katherine,” Ben Fankhauser as “Davey” and Andrew Keenan-Bolger as “Crutchie,” and NEWSIES North American Tour stars Steve Blanchard as “Joseph Pulitzer,” Aisha de Haas as “Medda Larkin,” and Ethan Steiner as “Les.” Since opening on Broadway in 2011, NEWSIES has played 1,711 performances between Broadway and the North American tour, to more than 2.5 million audience members in 65 cities across the country.

Set in New York City at the turn of the century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.

NEWSIES, the new American musical, features a Tony Award-winning score with music by eight-time Academy Award®-winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, a book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein and is produced by Disney Theatrical Productions. NEWSIES is directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, who won a 2012 Tony Award for his work on the show. The entire creative team was reunited to bring the break-out smash musical to audiences across North America.

“It’s with great excitement that we’re partnering with Disney Theatrical Productions once again to bring NEWSIES back to the big screen for audiences to enjoy this summer,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey. “The tremendous success of the last event further proves the appetite and excitement the fansies have for NEWSIES!”
