Almost one million Chinese have flocked to Walt Disney Co.’s latest resort in Shanghai just to visit its public areas, including a commercial strip of shops and a lake, in the past 23 days as the company prepares to officially open the gates to its Magic Kingdom next month.

Since the resort’s subway stop opened on April 26, 960,000 people have visited the non-ticketed areas of Shanghai Disneyland, Liu Zhengyi, deputy director of the administrative commission of the planning zone where the Disney resort is located, said at a briefing on the park Thursday.
