Opening ceremony of Shanghai Disney Resort kicked off on the evening of June 15.

Sun Li, the ambassador for the theme park, said she was very excited that the park is finally opening.

"My favorite Disney character is Donald Duck. I was so excited when I saw him dressed in a Chinese silk jacket on the red carpet that I asked him to pose for a photo with me."

When asked about how she felt about the Resort, Sun said it was magnificent. "Some rides are adventurous, others adorable. I never get enough of Winnie the Pooh and merry-go-round."

But one day is too short to have a blast.

"I haven't tried other fun rides or watched the musical The Lion King. Maybe next time," Sun added.

Sun said she exchanged views on Disney with her two kids at home, also devoted Disney fans. "We love all characters Disney created, even the villains. They are not scary-looking, quite the contrary, they are kinda endearing," Sun said.

"I live in Shanghai so it's convenient for me to go to Disney Resort. Both my kids are old enough to eat adult food. If your kids are babies, here are nursery rooms and strollers for rent. Kiosks are everywhere for you to buy water and snacks. Healthy food and free water are also available. Rest assured. Everything is taken care of."

Clearly, Sun thought highly of the service in the park.

Regarding the differences between Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney parks elsewhere, Sun said Shanghai Disney is big enough to be a resort and not just an amusement park. "One of my friends said food here was served in a large portion, covering almost all Shanghai delicacies. Coupled with those shopping malls, it is practically an integrated resort."

As a celebrity mom, she has spent some quality time with her kids in the park.

"Kids don't sleep in Disneyland," She said.

"My son took no nap at a Disneyland abroad. This took me by surprise because he once slept two hours in a noisy outlet in New York. He is a different man in the park. My daughter is also the case, alive and kicking. Disneyland seems to resonate with kids in a magic way."
