Happy 1st Birthday Shanghai Disney Resort!

One year ago today, Shanghai Disney Resort opened its doors to the public. While the project was quite a long time in the making and cost a reported $5.5 billion, the results from its first year indicate strongly that all the extra cost and effort was worth it. As part of the park’s anniversary celebration, Disney announced over 11 million people have visited it since it opened, which places it 6th among all Disney Parks for annual attendance. Not bad for year 1.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments: 1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?) I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
