Shanghai Disney Resort said it is ready to welcome its 10 millionth visitor, as the resort approaches its first anniversary on June 16.

"In the next few days, Shanghai Disney Resort will welcome its 10 millionth guest," said Robert Iger, chairman and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Co, said at a conference call on Tuesday.

"As the resort has become a true national destination in China, attendance is outpacing our most optimistic projections and the park's performance is exceeding our expectations."

Iger said: "The addition of the new Toy Story Land will add to the park's popularity ... and it's just the first of several planned expansions in Shanghai."

According to the second-quarter report, Shanghai Disney Resort has contributed to the operating income growth of the company for the quarter.

Christine McCarthy, senior executive vice-president and chief financial officer of Walt Disney, said: "Parks and resorts delivered another strong quarter, with operating income growth of 20 percent, driven by increases at Shanghai Disney Resort and our domestic parks and resorts."

Disney reported revenues for the second quarter reached $13.3 billion and net income stood at $2.388 billion.
