From Anaheim, With Love

Yesterday, the Walt Disney Company officially opened the sixth Magic Kingdom, Shanghai Disneyland.  It is a grand and spectacular park--a reimagining of the classic Disneyland park with a distinctly Chinese influence and new technologies and destinations brought forth to rapidly growing market.  In almost sixty years, Disney Parks has grown from a single entity in the groves of Orange County to twelve parks and six resorts around the world.  It's amazing to see how far things have come.  It's wonderful to see how Walt Disney's special dream has grown and touched so many people.  And it's nostalgic to ponder it all and consider... it all started with a mouse.  And, of course, a man with deep ambitions and the drive to fulfill them.

From California to China, congratulations to the Shanghai Disneyland team--the Imagineering designers and engineers, the construction workers, the performers, artisans, craftsmen, the cast members opening the park, the marketers, technicians, and everyone else involved in such a mammoth undertaking.  It's quite an accomplishment!
