Prepare yourselves, Disney fans: This is gonna be BIG.

Shanghai Disney -- an approximately $5.5 billion, 1,000-acre wonderland resort -- is set to open this Thursday on China's central coast.

The park features all kinds of "distinctly Chinese" elements you won't find in other Disney parks around the globe, Disney CEO Bob Iger explained in an interview with CNBC. Instead of Main Street, you'll find a Mickey Avenue. A Chinese tea house sits at the park's center, and Chinese performers light up various acrobatic shows. 

The park has been welcoming visitors for trial operations ahead of its grand opening this Thursday. Regular-season adult tickets will cost about $56, and peak-season tickets -- those sold during the first couple months of park operation -- will cost about $76. Take a look at what's in store:
