Shanghai Disney Resort Reveals a ‘Magical Surprise’ in Honor of 5th Anniversary

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Thomas Smith

Just yesterday, our friends at Shanghai Disney Resort launched their 5th Birthday Celebration, the Year of Magical Surprises. As part of that occasion, they recently unveiled “Magical Surprise,” an all-new song capturing the theme of the special celebration. I got to discuss how this song came to be with Yaron Spiwak, Senior Music Producer & Creative Director at Walt Disney Imagineering. Here are some excerpts from our conversation:

Who were the song writers and how were they chosen?

Yaron: The song was written by Chris Sernel, an American recording artist and Grammy-nominated producer who worked with us on a song for a previous project, and Jeff Lewis, a songwriter for films and a contestant on season 4 of “The Voice.” It was co-produced by Jeff, Chris, Leo Shahar and myself. The song was written and submitted in English first but was adapted by the local team to a Mandarin version that kept the same spirit and message as the original.

Here is a clip of the Mandarin language version released by Shanghai Disney Resort and sung by Liu Yuning:
