Fun Find: Grand Opening of Shanghai Disney Resort

Hi friends!  It's time for another fun find Friday!  Today, we're traveling across the world to celebrate the Grand Opening of the Shanghai Disney Resort!  The newest Disney park officially opened it's gates to guests yesterday, June 16th.

To celebrate, Disney aired a television special called the "Grand Opening Celebration of Shanghai Disney Resort" last night at 8:00 pm on Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD, as well as each channel's App.  The television special was narrated by Sofia Carson- who plays "Evie" in Disney's Descendants.  

The show consisted of a concert with classic Disney music, acrobats, fireworks, a large choir and projections on the enormous Enchanted Storybook Castle.  It also featured new music created especially for Shanghai Disney Resort.

Above is a video with a few highlights from the opening concert.  If you missed the full television special last night, don't worry!  It's airing one more time tonight, June 17th, at 10:00 pm on Freeform (formerly ABC Family).

Disney also released a video of the concert without narration on their Youtube channel.

I'm glad Disney did something to formally celebrate the opening of the newest park, although I was expecting a television special more like the Christmas Parade where it's like one giant advertisement for the parks.  I'm really hoping they'll add some footage of the park and attractions during this years' Christmas Parade.  I'd love to see more of the rides!  What I've seen so far is incredible!
