Where does the time go? With April almost over, as any Justin Timberlake meme will tell you, it's gonna be May. Then May is practically June which means that the opening of Shanghai Disneyland is just around the corner!

This week, the metro stop for the resort opened and brought with it thousands of guests who have been exploring Disneytown and what it will have to offer. At the same time, Cast Members and other invited guests have begun touring the property. Luckily for us, this has led to numerous photos and videos being shared on Instagram and other social media sites (I suppose I should really get on WeChat, huh?).

Here are some of my favorite Instagram posts from the resort so far:

Shanghai Disneyland

Aside from some cool overhead shots of the park, at least one amazing video has surfaced from inside the park:

Disneytown

Since this part of the resort is the most accessible to the public at the moment, there seems to be many more photos of it being posted. Take a look:

Toy Story Hotel

While it may be the less expensive of the two resort hotels, the Toy Story Hotel seems to be a favorite spot for photographing details like these:
