There's a New Disney-Themed Airplane Flying People Around China
If you're heading to or from Shanghai starting this month, you may get a Disney-sized surprise once you step foot in your airplane. To celebrate the much-anticipated Disney Shanghai opening (coming June 16th!), China Eastern Airlines and Shanghai Disney Resort put their teams together and repainted an Airbus A330 airplane featuring Disney's poster mice: Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Unfortunately, there aren't many details on what the interior looks like or if there are any themed amenities available to flyers. This is the first Disney-themed airplane from the partnership, but there are more to come in the next couple of years—specifically, a plane boasting scenes from the Enchanted Storybook Castle. The design's first flight took off from Shanghai last Tuesday. Sound like a dream? This particular plane will service flights between Shanghai and Beijing.
