China UnionPay Becomes Official Card of Shanghai Disney Resort and Official Sponsor of Soaring Over the Horizon Attraction

Shanghai Disney Resort and China UnionPay have entered into a multi-year strategic alliance which recognizes China UnionPay as an official alliance participant and the official card of Shanghai Disney Resort. Additionally, China UnionPay will be the presenting sponsor of the Soaring Over the Horizon attraction.

Located in Adventure Isle area of the theme park, Soaring Over the Horizon will make its official world premiere at Shanghai Disneyland on June 16, when the resort has its official grand opening. The attraction transports guests on an incredible around-the-world journey—“flying” over Earth’s iconic landmarks, cities and natural attractions, including such Chinese locales as the Great Wall and the Shanghai skyline, as well as such international destinations as Sydney Harbor and the Matterhorn mountain in the Swiss Alps, among many others.

Through this agreement, guests will be able to use their China UnionPay cards at point of sale locations throughout the resort, including in Shanghai Disneyland, World of Disney Store and Spoonful of Sugar in Disneytown, and at the two resort hotels – Shanghai Disneyland Hotel and Toy Story Hotel.

“We look forward to helping Shanghai Disney Resort welcome millions of guests, both from China and from throughout the world, to this world-class destination. China UnionPay will be the official card throughout the resort,” said Ying Hu, Assistant President of China UnionPay.

“We are pleased to have China UnionPay join Shanghai Disney Resort as our newest alliance participant,” said Philippe Gas, General Manager of Shanghai Disney Resort.  “Soaring Over the Horizon is a very special attraction, which we know our guests are going to love. We are excited to have China UnionPay join us in presenting this incredible experience.”
