Shanghai Disney Resort Opening Gala Virtual Viewing

When tickets for Shanghai Disneyland’s reopening went on sale, they were sold out in minutes. It would not be a far stretch to say that every Disney fan has some level of desire to be one of the first Guests to walk back through the gates of a Disney park.

Unfortunately, we can’t all be there. We have to wait our turn as well as wait for our own closer parks to reopen. But Disney wants all of us to be able to celebrate the reopening of Shanghai Disney, so they are turning back the clock to 2016 to take all of us back to Shanghai Disneyland’s Opening Day Gala with this special virtual viewing.

Check it out:

Disney shared the virtual viewing with the following statement:

Tonight, we’re following our earlier update that Shanghai Disney Resort will begin the phased reopening of Shanghai Disneyland on May 11 with a special #DisneyMagicMoments virtual viewing of the Resort’s historic one-of-a-kind grand opening ceremony in 2016.  

For this pre-recorded viewing of the grand opening of Shanghai Disney Resort, you’re front and center to experience the breathtaking music-filled event that showcases the beauty of Chinese art and tradition and brings magical stories and characters to life like never before!  

We hope you enjoyed this virtual viewing of the 2016 grand opening of Shanghai Disney Resort. Keep checking back for more #DisneyMagicMoments coming to the Disney Parks Blog.


Disney Magic Moments Mother's Day Challenge

This virtual viewing is just the latest addition to the #DisneyMagicMoments initiative: a social media campaign started by Disney Parks and Resorts to keep bringing the magic of the Disney directly into the homes of every Disney fan.

Through the #DisneyMagicMoments campaign, Disney has shared special messages, as well as special viewings of parades and shows. Disney even shared a very special virtual viewing of Walt Disney World’s nighttime spectacular: “Happily Ever After.”

Now that the Disney parks are beginning to reopen again, it is the perfect opportunity to keep spreading the magic and prepare for our turn to step back into the parks once again.

Shanghai Disneyland will open to the public at limited capacity and limited hours on Monday, May 11.
