During the presentation Disney CEO Bob Iger said the resort showcases "the best of Disney's storytelling" and also "celebrates and incorporates China's incredibly rich heritage to create a one-of-a-kind destination that will delight and entertain the people of China for generations to come."

Shanghai Disneyland will be home to the tallest, largest, and most interactive castle at any Disney theme park. The Enchanted Storybook Castle will be the centerpiece of the park's Fantasyland area which will also include the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan's Flight, and Voyage to the Crystal Grotto.

Another themed land, Treasure Cove, is the first pirate-themed land in a Disney park and will feature Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure. This attraction is a thrilling boat ride with robotics, animation, and more.

Other lands include Adventure Isle with Soaring Over the Horizon and Camp Discovery, Tomorrowland where the TRON Lightcycle Power Run is located, Mickey Avenue which is the first main entry to a Disney park inspired by Mickey Mouse and friends, and Gardens of Imagination which will include Dumbo the Flying Elephant and seven whimsical gardens.

Shanghai Disney Resort is scheduled to open in the spring of 2016.
