The Disney Theme Park – A Tradition of Fun for Guests of All Ages

Discover a magical place where you can ignite the dream inside your heart with family and friends!



Once upon a time, Walt Disney—the founder of the Walt Disney Company—had a dream about something much more exciting than a standard amusement park:

“It came about when my daughters were very young and Saturday was always daddy’s day. So I’d take them to the merry-go-round and different places and as I’d sit while they rode the merry-go-round, I felt that there should be something built where parents and children could have fun together. And eventually it evolved into what you see today at Disneyland. But it all started from a daddy with 2 daughters wondering where he could take them where he could have a little fun with them, too.”

And so, the Disney theme parks were born more than 60 years ago, inspiring a spirit of happiness, innocence and the sharing of memory-making experiences. Now, Shanghai Disney Resort continues the tradition in new and unique ways, through never-before-seen lands like Adventure Isle, Treasure Cove and Gardens of Imagination, and one-of-a-kind attractions and experiences. That includes the largest castle in any Disney theme park around the world!

The dream of the Walt Disney Company is alive and well at Shanghai Disney Resort. Quite unlike any other Disney property on the planet, Shanghai Disney Resort prides itself on offering a culturally distinct experience—imagined especially for China and designed for Guests of every kind.

And it all started with Walt’s idea, creating “a family park where parents and children could have fun together.”
