Shanghai Disneyland has started vertical construction of its upcoming Zootopia-themed land, the eighth themed land for China's most-visited theme park.
Construction on the land began last December, before pausing while the park was closed during the pandemic. Shanghai Disneyland reopened to guests last month and with piling work now complete, it's time to put up the steel.
"Today’s Zootopia construction milestone brings us another step closer to the beloved Zootopia story and characters coming to life in Shanghai," Shanghai Disney Resort President and General Manager Joe Schott said. "We are always looking for new ways to delight and entertain our guests here in Shanghai with unique Disney storytelling and magical experiences. The steel column installed today is an integral part of our new land which is sure to offer incredible adventures to our guests for years to come. We have every confidence in our continued success and we are looking forward to creating even more excitement and bringing many more unique Disney stories to our guests."
This will be the first land themed to Disney's 2016 Academy Award-winning animated hit. "Upon completion guests will fully immerse themselves in the mammalian metropolis of Zootopia with new entertainment, merchandise, food and beverage offerings and a new major attraction that seamlessly blends Disney’s storytelling and state of the art technologies to bring this fan-favorite movie and its characters to life," Shanghai Disneyland said in its press release.
