Park Layout

Layout of Shanghai Disneyland

Shanghai Disneyland Park will be a new variation of traditional "Disneyland" style theme parks found all over the world, and will not include many features found at most other "Disneyland" Parks. Departing from Disney's traditional "hub & spoke" design, this park will not include a conventional hub area, nor will it include a railroad attraction circling the park due to the negative connotations of the Chinese immigrants who died building the First Transcontinental Railroad, as well as possibly China's strict emission laws. As a replacement for a "hub", the center of the park will instead feature an 11-acre collection of gardens. For the first time in Disney parks history, the park's carousel and Dumbo attractions will be located in front of the park's castle instead of behind. Unlike other Disneyland style parks, this park will include neither a "Frontierland" nor a "Main Street U.S.A." area. On opening day, the park will feature 8 themed areas: Mickey Avenue, Fantasyland, Garden of the Twelve Friends, Tomorrowland, Toy Story Land, Treasure Cove, & Adventure Isle.

Mickey Avenue

Instead of the traditional "Main Street U.S.A.", Shanghai Disneyland will include a new entrance area called Mickey Avenue, a collection of shops and restaurants themed to different eras of Disney's history. The Carthay Circle Theater, found at Disney California Adventure Park, will also be an icon found in this area of the park. A variation of the 'Partners' statue, based on the statue found in the center of the hub at most other Disney Magic Kingdom style parks will also be included. The Statue will feature Walt Disney holding Mickey Mouse's hand with other Disney characters also being featured (including Minnie Mouse, Ariel, Flounder, Mushu, Pongo, Perdita, Baloo, Goofy, Dumbo, Timon, Pumbaa and Bambi).

Attractions:

  • Walt Disney Theater

  • Club 33
  • Mickey & Pals Market Cafe
  • Remy's Patisserie
  • Sweethearts Confectionery

Fantasyland

The park will feature a new version of Fantasyland. The park's castle, called Enchanted Storybook Castle, will represent all Disney Princesses and will be the largest and most interactive of all six "Disneyland" style castles.[2] Shanghai's Fantasyland will be divided into two sections with the traditional Fantasyland area being located behind the castle, and a new area called Garden of the Twelve Friends being located infront.

Fantasyland will feature a new version of Peter Pan's Flight as well as a copy of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction to be found at Walt Disney World Resort. Instead of the traditional "Tea Cups" attraction, Shanghai's park will include the Hunny Pot Spin, a spinning ride inside large hunny pots based on Winnie the Pooh. The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh dark ride will also be included as well as an Alice in Wonderland themed maze similar to that of Disneyland Paris.

This new area will be themed to the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac, featuring mosaic tile murals depicting various Disney characters.[3] A brand new unique attraction called Voyage To The Crystal Grotto will also be included, and will be a guided boat tour through the castle, and around Fantasyland. A Fantasia themed carousel attraction, as well as the classic Dumbo The Flying Elephant attraction found at other Disney parks will also be included here.
