35 Amazing Shanghai Disney Resort Statistics and Facts (May 2018)

In my latest Disney stat post, I take a look at some interesting Shanghai Disney Resort statistics and facts. Enjoy!

I recently sat down to find out more about Disney’s most recent theme park. Here are the more interesting Shanghai Disney Resort statistics and facts I was able to dig up. Despite the fact that Shanghai Disney Resort has only been around for about a year, there is still much to measure and list here. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff, so be sure to check back regularly.

Please note that some of these Shanghai Disney Resort statistics and facts are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed  should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
