Disney’s Iger Offers Look At Shanghai Park

First images shown at annual sharehlders meeting in Phoenix

Walt Disney chairman-CEO Robert Iger Wednesday unveiled the first images of a model of the Shanghai Disney Resort featuring the Shanghai Disneyland park that will likely become a hallmark of his tenure at the company.

First among the public to to see it: a cheering devoted crowd at the Mouse’s annual shareholder meeting. The confab moves around the country each year for the benefit of the widely-held stock’s enthusiastic retail shareholder base, from eight years old to eighty. It unspooled today in Phoenix.

“With Shanghai Disneyland, we’re creating a one-of-a-kind destination that is authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese. We believe this will be one of the most spectacular Disney experiences yet and an important part of our future,” Iger said. The gates will open at the end of 2015.

The image illustrates a portion of the model, an 11-acre green space at the center of the park and  a closer look at the design and scale of Enchanted Storybook Castle, its central attraction.

The resort include two themed hotels, a 495,000 square foot dining and retail complex, a lake and transportation and parking hubs.
