Fan Xiping, chairman of Shanghai Shendi Group, Disney's Chinese partner, said that. Fan said 5.6 million people had visited Shanghai Disneyland by Dec 31, 2016.

Eighty percent of the visitors said they were "very satisfied" or "satisfied" with their visits, according to a third party survey.

Meanwhile, Shanghai Disneyland Hotel and Toy Story Hotel reported up to 90 percent occupancy.

The first-ever Mandarin production of "The Lion King" was staged over 220 times, making it the most-run Broadway musical in the Chinese mainland.

"Both sides from China and the U.S. are satisfied with the park's performance," Fan said.

Previously, Walt Disney, in its 2016 fiscal year report, said that Shanghai Disneyland received 4 million visitors in its first four months of operation.
