The latest Disney resort in Shanghai is in the final stages of construction and set to open its doors on June 16 this year. These aerial photos give an exclusive look at the 3.8 billion park, which covers 963 acres of land in east China, from above.

Tickets for the opening day went on sale this past weekend and sold out within hours of being listed on the company's official ticketing website. According to the site, all rooms are fully booked at the Toy Story Hotel and the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel for the first two weeks.

Despite being eight times bigger than the 126-acre Hong Kong park, Shanghai is supposedly the cheapest of all the Disneyland resorts. Off-peak tickets will cost visitors 39 and rise to a maximum of 51 during peak times.

The park will feature six themed lands, packed full of many record breaking and pioneering family attractions and live entertainment offerings which celebrate Disney's new films as well as the originals. The centrepiece of the resort, the Enchanted Storybook Castle is the largest, tallest and most complex castle in the six Disney venues.

Officials expect that the park will draw crowds of around 17 million per year and to widen its appeal, the park isn't limiting its target audience to small children. Big kids, you'll want to check this out too...
