Yesterday, the company signed a deal with  Shanghai International Theme Park. The contract will run for five years and has a total value of approximately RMB6.6mln (£660,000), with potential for further revenue in the management and servicing of its products.

Due to open early next year, Shanghai International Theme Park's Shanghai Disney will have six themed lands, a huge castle in the middle of one of the lands and two dedicated hotels.

Disney holds a 43% stake in Shanghai International Theme Park, with Chinese state owned investment company Shanghai Shendi owning 57%.

It will develop a platform for third parties, such as travel agents, to sell admission tickets for its Parks and theatres. It is believed to be the first outsourcing deal Disney has struck in Asia.
