Welcome to Shanghai Disneyland Park located in Pudong, Shanghai, China.
This never-before-seen world of wonders theme park opened on June 16, 2016, through a joint venture between The Walt Disney Company and Shanghai Shendi Group and is the newest Disney theme park to open in the world.
The Shanghai resort blends both authentically Disney elements with distinctly Chinese cultural themes in its redesigns of many of the familiar attractions seen in other Disney parks, to cater for Chinese visitors’ preferences.
For a central-spoked/hub, the park features a 4.5-hectare collection of Chinese zodiac gardens called the Gardens of Imagination with Main Street U.S.A. giving way to Mickey Avenue, which introduces Chinese visitors to Disney characters.
The park has a total of seven themed areas: Mickey Avenue, Gardens of Imagination, Fantasyland, Treasure Cove, Adventure Isle, Tomorrowland, and Toy Story Land. On January 22, 2019, Disney Parks announced that an eighth themed land, City of Zootopia, based on Disney’s animated film, Zootopia would be coming to the park.
Fantasyland is the park’s largest land themed to Disney animated films and features the unique 197 ft Enchanted Storybook Castle, themed to Disney princesses. The castle is the largest in any Disney theme park and features the Royal Banquet Hall restaurant, a boutique, and Voyage to the Crystal Grotto, a boat ride around and under the castle that takes guests past scenes from films including Tangled, Aladdin, Mulan, Fantasia, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.
Ignite the magical dream within your heart
Mickey Avenue, the entrance of the park, is the park’s equivalent to Main Street, U.S.A.. The area is inspired by the personalities of Disney cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Chip ‘n’ Dale as well as Disney films, including Ratatouille, The Three Caballeros, and Lady and the Tramp.
Avenue M Arcade, the largest gift shop in the park, is modeled after the Carthay Circle Theater. The Storytellers statue, which depicts a young Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse, is at the end of Mickey Avenue and in front of the Gardens of Imagination.
The hub of the park, this land features seven 4.5-hectare (11-acre) Chinese gardens with each of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac represented by Disney characters.
Attractions include Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Fantasia Carousel, and Marvel Super Heroes at Marvel Universe, a meet-and-greet pavilion featuring Marvel characters.
Entertainment includes castle stage shows as well as the nightly Ignite the Dream, A Nighttime Spectacular of Magic and Light. Mickey’s Storybook Express, a parade with a musical soundtrack and colorful performers, runs on the longest parade route in a Disney park.
Fantasyland is the park’s largest land themed to Disney animated films. The land features the 197 ft (60 m) Enchanted Storybook Castle, themed to Disney princesses.
Attractions include Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan’s Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, Alice’s Curious Labyrinth, a walk-through hedge maze inspired by the 1951 and 2010 versions film adaptations, and the Hunny Pot Spin, a spinning Teacups-style ride themed to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
Treasure Cove is themed to an 18th-century Spanish harbor town located on a Caribbean island that has been captured by Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.
The land’s marquee attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure, a dark ride based on the films.
Guests, riding in magnetically propelled boats, travel past audio-animatronic and projected depictions of Jack Sparrow and Davy Jones as the two battle against each other in attempt to seize the cove’s sunken riches.
The land also is home to Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular, a stunt show inspired by the films and Siren’s Revenge, a shipwreck-themed three-story interactive play area set aboard a wrecked French galleon.
Adventure Isle is the park’s counterpart to Adventureland. Focused around a mysterious lost world full of hidden treasures, the land features Roaring Rapids, a river rapids ride through the land’s towering Roaring Mountain and Soaring Over the Horizon, a hang gliding flight experience across the world.
Additionally, the land features Tarzan: Call of the Jungle, a live acrobatic stage show, and Camp Discovery.
Tomorrowland is the park’s futuristic-themed land.
Unlike the other Tomorrowlands, this version does not have Space Mountain and instead is home to TRON Lightcycle Power Run, an indoor Tron-themed roller coaster.
Similarly, instead of an Astro Orbiter attraction, Shanghai’s park includes a spinning Jet Packs ride. Other attractions include Star Wars Launch Bay, Stitch Encounter, and Buzz Lightyear Planet Rescue, a variant of previous Buzz Lightyear dark rides.
This Toy Story franchise-themed land, the park’s first expansion, opened on April 26, 2018.
The original plans for Shanghai Disneyland called for a Toy Story area with three rides, two restaurants, a show, and a gift shop.
The Celebration Café, a restaurant that opened on opening day, was meant to be in Toy Story Land. Additionally, the nearby bathrooms are the same as the Toy Story Green Army Men attractions found at the other parks.
