"See ya real soon!" as Mickey Mouse would say.

With the Shanghai Disney Resort set to officially open on June 16, excitement is building up.

At Beijing Capital International Airport, China Eastern Airlines crew members took pictures with the airline's first Disney-themed plane.

The airline's official commercial operations on the Beijing-Shanghai route began yesterday. It is partnering Disney in a slew of brand campaign events, where airline counters, inflight magazines and videos, VIP airport lounges and services will get a touch of Disney magic.

And in Shanghai, the Disney Resort metro station opened its doors yesterday, enabling visitors to look out at the Shanghai Disney Resort. The station is a 10-minute walk from the theme park.
