Disney releases new image of Shanghai Disneyland Resort
The Walt Disney Company today released a image of its model for the new Shanghai Disneyland
park in China, under construction for a planned debut in 2015.
From Disney's press release:
The image illustrates a portion of the model of Shanghai Disneyland, and provides a first look at a beautiful, 11-acre green space at the center of the park, and a closer look at the unique design and scale of Enchanted Storybook Castle, the iconic central attraction of the theme park. On opening day Shanghai Disney Resort will include Shanghai Disneyland, two themed hotels, a 46,000-square-meter (495,000 square feet) gross floor area retail, dining and entertainment venue, recreational facilities, a lake and associated parking and transportation hubs.
Disney's perfected the art of creating attraction and theme park models and concept art that look richly detailed while remaining maddeningly vague. So go ahead and play your best "Where's Waldo?" game in trying to find some attraction hints within the image. The comments await you.
That big water feature screams "World of Color" to me. And I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that there's a carousel!
Ah, but is it a carousel... or a princess meet n' greet?
Nice to see that the castle may not be a replica of the others. That is one thing I really like about Disneyland Paris. It broke away from Disney World's and Disneyland's castle molds. I'm curious to see how different it will be.
For Ms. Jenkins
I have a feeling this park will be great.
Looks beautiful...whatever it is! ;)
The castle looks cool!
The castle looks cool! Different from the other parks.
I really don't understand why Disney is building a second chinese resort when it's first one struggles to turn a profit? Now imagine the possibilities if all the other resorts got one of the 4 billion dollars to expand their resorts. Wow! I think that would've been better.

I'm excited to see how this turns out. It's nice to see Disney think outside the box for a magic kingdom theme park. First time in a long time since they did that. I've been hearing a lot of people say that this will be the largest Disney theme park ever in history. Is this true? If so, then I better start planning my trip to both tokyo and shanghi :)
Robert: I'm pretty sure I see horses in the "carousel" looking building.
Thank you so much TH! That video looked amazing.
Great design! I can't wait to see how tomorrowland will be. Congratulations.
