Los Angeles - Disney's long-awaited theme park in China's commercial hub Shanghai, its first on the mainland, will open on June 16, the company announced on Tuesday.

The $5.5bn facility, originally slated to open last year, will feature everything from an Enchanted Storybook Castle - the tallest in any Disney park - to a "Toy Story"-themed hotel and a theatre with a Chinese-language production of the Broadway hit "The Lion King."

But Walt Disney Co. also says the park will reflect China's own culture - something Chinese officials sought to ensure before permitting the icon of US entertainment to enter the country.
