Shanghai Disneyland is "very impressive" and could definitely add to the profitability of Walt Disney over the next few years, analyst Anthony DiClemente said Thursday.
That's because the story is about more than just the theme park, which opened Thursday and is Disney's first in mainland China.
"This is about Disney's brand globally. It's about planting a flag in China. ... It really will extend not only to the parks but also to the studio segment, to the consumer product segment," the senior media and internet analyst at Nomura said in an interview with CNBC's "Closing Bell. "
"It's something that over the course of the next 10, 20, 30 years will definitely help the operating results of Disney."
DiClemente, who has a "buy" rating on Disney, visited Shanghai Disney earlier this week. He said the rides and technology are very new compared to the company's existing parks.
"Demand is quite strong. I think the Chinese are going to love it," he said.
The park's highly anticipated debut was overshadowed by the fatal alligator attack on a 2-year-old at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday. The toddler was playing in the water on a beach near Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa when he was dragged away by the alligator.
