The Walt Disney Company has unveiled the first image of a model of Shanghai Disneyland Park.

The image, unveiled at the company’s annual shareholder meeting Wednesday, shows a portion of the Shanghai Disneyland model and its beautiful 11-acre green space at the center of the park.

At the meeting Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger said the one-of-a-kind destination will be authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese. “We believe this will be one of the most spectacular Disney experiences yet – and an important part of our future,” he said. “We look forward to opening the gates at the end of 2015 and welcoming the first of the millions of guests who will enjoy Shanghai Disneyland for generations to come.”

The Shanghai Disney Resort will include Shanghai Disneyland, two themed hotels, a dining and entertainment venue, recreational facilities, a lake and associated parking and transportation hubs.
