Hello from Shanghai Disney Resort! We’re celebrating the fourth anniversary of Shanghai Disneyland’s opening in 2016 – a moment that is particularly meaningful to all of us, since it comes just over one month following the much-anticipated reopening of our park. Our recent phased reopening has been a memorable part of our journey, with each day bringing magic back to the resort, beginning with the return of the shopping and dining experiences at Disneytown and Wishing Star Park in March.

From Disneytown to Shanghai Disneyland, it has been wonderful to welcome our cast members and guests back to the magic. We’ve been encouraged by our guests’ overwhelmingly positive feedback and grateful for their support for new health and safety measures.

Over the past three months, guests have returned to Disneytown and rated it the highest since it opened in 2016. As we gradually increase capacity throughout the resort, we have also seen a steady increase in guests at our Shanghai Disneyland Hotel, and I am pleased to share that we have now reopened Toy Story Hotel as well.

Inside the park, we’ve taken another step forward with the return of our theater shows – “Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular” and “Frozen: A Sing-Along Celebration” – and the opening of “Disney Color-Fest,” our colorful new seasonal show.

At Shanghai Disneyland, Mickey, Minnie, and friends are greeting our guests in new ways; guests are showing off their best Disney-inspired styles in the park; and fan-favorite attractions like TRON Lightcycle Power Run are thrilling visitors once again. While guests are falling in love with their old favorites all over again, they are also being treated to new offerings, including the opening of our new store, Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Trading Post in Adventure Isle.

We are also extremely excited to welcome a new friend to the resort: ‘Olu Mel! This music-loving turtle from Hawaii has joined Duffy and his friends to delight guests, while appearing in a variety of new ways in the park.

June is also a big month for Donald and his fans! To celebrate his birthday, Donald is taking over the resort, with staycation and birthday offerings, and fun new merchandise and food and beverages, just in time for summer!

Thank you to all the guests who have joined us at the park over the past four years – and for those planning to visit us, we can’t wait to welcome you. It’s going to be a magical summer at Shanghai Disneyland!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
