Shanghai Disney Resort Celebrates Magical Women’s Day with Female Guests
March 03,2017

SHANGHAI, March 3, 2017 – To commemorate the first International Women’s Day since the resort’s grand opening, from today through March 8, Shanghai Disney Resort is hosting an extended Women’s Day celebration featuring an array of themed events and inspiring activities specially designed for female guests. During the festival, Minnie Mouse will take the helm of the Shanghai Disneyland Band for the first time ever, the recently introduced new Disney character, ShellieMay, will mingle and snap photos with guests, and the bustling Disneytown will be bursting with festivities and shopping experiences for women of all ages. 
 
Disney Characters Offer Unforgettable Women’s Day Experiences
To celebrate this special festival of women, one of Disney’s most iconic female characters, Minnie Mouse, will take the baton from Mickey Mouse to lead the Shanghai Disneyland Band, adding her charm and happiness to the show as she guides the talented musicians through a delightful performance on Mickey Avenue. The Shanghai Disneyland Band brings an added splash of magic to Mickey Avenue every day, typically led by Mickey Mouse, featuring gleaming marching band instruments.
 
During the festival, ShellieMay – the lovable friend of Duffy Bear – will join Disney friends to meet and greet guests in the park. ShellieMay’s sky-blue eyes, long, bashful eyelashes and cute bowknot will captivate guests, and make for a picture-perfect opportunity to share with friends on social media. ShellieMay also made the latest addition to Shanghai Disney Resort’s merchandise last month and the adorable collection offers great gifts for Women’s Day.
 
As Shanghai Disneyland opens on the official International Women’s Day, March 8, a gathering of popular female Disney Characters will greet guests on Mickey Avenue to give a special welcome for their big day.
 
The theme park’s world-class attractions and boundless entertainment offer something for everyone. Young ladies can experience the royal treatment while wandering through the Enchanted Storybook Castle – the largest Disney castle in any Disneyland around the world. Women with adventuring spirit can enjoy the thrill and freedom felt on the TRON Lightcycle Power Run. Mothers and daughters can revel in the strength, courage and resolve from the memorable show “Frozen: A Sing-Along Celebration”. Friends can gather for a relaxing afternoon tea and treats at Rémy's Patisserie.
